Nusa Penida’s north coast is home to some of Bali’s most magnificent drift dives. Sental dive site is located near the sites of SD, PED, and Tugu walls. This site, which is marked by high-voltage undersea lines from Bali, is extraordinarily well preserved. Sental diving is an excellent way to see a wide variety of plants and creatures.
This dive location, like the others mentioned above, is used for drift diving. You will, in fact, allow yourself to be dragged along the wall by the current in order to see the “movie” in front of you! During a PADI discovery dive or a PADI training dive, you can progress in fantastic conditions thanks to the tray located above the wall.
Your guide will demonstrate how to use the macro in this location. Nudibranchs, crabs, and even ghost fishes are just a few examples. It is, indeed, a spectacular treasure quest that causes even expert divers to see stars in their eyes! To examine the macro, however, good buoyancy is still required! A sloppy palm stroke can keep you from seeing what your mentor is showing you. You’ll also have to wait because the first anemone does not include any ghost fish or other unusual species!
