Nusa Penida Diving Day Trip: 2-3 dives Mantas and MolaMola
The island of Nusa Penida is known world-wide for her Manta rays and Molamola (Sunfish).
The Atlantis speedboats I and II leave Sanur beach each day around 8:30am, almost always making their way to the appropriately named dive site, Manta Point, where Reef Mantas rays (Manta Alfredi) come and go from a resident “cleaning station.”
On the other side of the island, we find the not-to-be-missed dive site, Crystal Bay. July through October is the best time to encounter the incredible Sunfish (Molamola), an impressive fish measuring up to 3 meters in height.
You will spend approximately 35 to 45 minutes to reach the dive sites. All of our dive sites are chosen according to the certification and experience level of the divers present, the weather conditions, and the current.
The day progresses to include 2 or 3 dives, lunch served on the boat, hot drinks and snacks.
Impossible to become bored with Nusa Penida, this island contains an inexhaustible number of dive sites for drift driving, and corals that are in magnificent health. Cold thermoclines (like a current) rising from the deep, ranging from 18-20 degrees, preserve the coral reef by clearing away particles that might obstruct sunlight, and bring nutrients to nourish the reef, while also allowing for an amazing visibility, and a chance to see large pelagic fish.
