From Bali: Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida

1. From Bali: Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida

Head for the island of Nusa Penida and embark on a snorkeling adventure. Take advantage of 3 different stops to swim with Manta Rays, enjoy lunch on the beach, then spend the afternoon exploring the mangrove forest. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in selected areas of Bali, and then journey to Nusa Penida, located 20 kilometers off the southeast coast. The largest of Bali's 3 sister islands (Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida, and Nusa Ceningan), Nusa Penida is much less developed and remains home to abundant and pristine nature. Marvel at the dramatic landscape and steep cliffs along the coast as you make your way to some of the island's best snorkel sites. Upon arrival at the protected bay of Manta Bay, discover an ocean rich with plankton that attracts beautiful reef manta rays that can sometimes measure up to an impressive 4 or 5 meters in wing span. Go to 3 of the best snorkel sites on the island, including popular spots (depending on conditions) such as Crystal Bay, Toyapakeh, and Gamat Bay. As the strong swells of the Indian Ocean can impact conditions, the situation will be carefully monitored to take you to where it is safe to swim with the rays less than 1.5 meters from the surface of the sea. If conditions are not suitable, your snorkeling itinerary will be adjusted accordingly, as your safety is always the number one priority. Following your magical snorkeling adventure, break for a delicious beachside lunch at Paradise Beach on Nusa Lembongan. The lunch is served as an Indonesian food buffet. Then, get the chance to explore the mangrove forest in the afternoon by kayak, stand-up paddle board, or private gondola.

What people are saying about Sanur

When we arrived at the boat pick up. The guide who picked us up just left us there with everyone else. This wasn’t explained what was happening. He just left. Luckily the other guide on the boat was excellent. We got some welcome drinks when arrived on island. When we arrived at stop 1/3 there was no Manta Rays. However the guides spotted this before we got in and took us to parts where we could. All three stops on the snorkelling we seen coral/ fishes/ Manta Rays. Was good time all round and the guides made sure to have fun. The only down side was the fact that the water sports booked with the package was kayak. As neither us were any good it meant we didn’t enjoy it as much. There was no option to change this either. All in all good day with only minor downsides.

Picked up from hotel as scheduled. Arrived in good time for the boat trip to the island. Very comfortable crossing. Picked up and transferred to Lembongan water sports who organised us into our groups very efficiently. There were about 20 in our bleat which was fine. Visited 3 snorkelling sites. No mantas at the first but then amazing corals and fish at the other 2. Best snorkelling I’ve ever done. Then back for a nice lunch before kayaking through the mangroves before the trip back to Bali. Excellent day out

Our guide tried 2 different sites to make sure we saw the rays. An incredible experience to see these majestic creatures up close. We stopped at 2 more sites to see the colorful fish and corals. One of the guides takes pictures/videos with his go-pro, so be sure you "pose" :-) The kayak trip in the afternoon was nothing special, and we had too much free time in between.

Tour was very well organized and the snorkeling was great. Even though we didn't manage to go to Manta Point because of the rough waves, it was definitely worth it. Amazing to see such a variety of fish and coral and we even saw some dolphins.

Very good trip. Food was great, transport was easy and staff were amazing. Really enjoyed the snorkelling and kayaking! Would highly recommend
