All of our dives are kept well within the No Decompression Limits, and we ensure that all of our divers stay within the maximum depth as prescribed by PADI and the other scuba certifying agencies.

July   to   September - it is recommended to wear a 5mm - 7mm suit.
October   to   May - it is recommended to wear a 3mm suit, though some may consider a 1mm suit to be adequate.
In general, a hood is not required year round.

From the marina to the dive sites, the travel time by boat, can be anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, to some of the best dive sites that you have ever experienced.

    Manta Point
    This is the most popular dive site at Nusa Penida.   As the name implies, the main attraction are the mantas and the hoards of dive boats and divers at the site.   Outside of the mantas, you may see nudibranches, blue spotted stingrays and other marine life, if you take a tour of the area.   Visibility is fair and the coral is not as good as at the other sites.   Our preference is to dive other locations at Penida that are frequented on a regular basis by Mantas, and no other dive boats or divers, other than our group would be in the water.   Visibility is fair.
