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

I went on this tour on my own from Ubud and it was a great experience! Everything was well organized and timed, we did a lot of activities so that the day was full, but absolutely relaxing and exciting at the same time. The guides were always nice, helpful and made sure we knew what to do in the water. We managed to see the mantas although the sea was pretty rough in that spot, and then snorkeled through corals and amazing sea life in other two spots. The guys always called us towards things to see, and took a lot of pics and videos of us which can be purchased at the end. Of course, if you can spend more time on the island it would be better because you could avoid being in a crowd, but otherwise this tour is a great option! Just a small note on that the ferry from/to Bali can be a bit rough, if you usually get sea sick get tablets or sit in the middle :)

We had such an amazing experience with this tour, and the guide/driver Astika was also very friendly and welcoming and helped us throughout the day, with good recommendations and help with our belongings and nearby when we finished. Snorkeling was incredible, the experts really guided us and gave us an unbelievable experience, we also went to a waterfall, coffee plantation with swing, a good halal restaurant recommended by Astika and then Canyoning. We had such a fantastic day. Thanks!

Was picked up from my hotel drove to the amazing snorkeling experience and after headed to the waterfall and canyoning. A day full of experiences and my driver / guide Komang Rapi was there for me all day, explaining me all about Bali culture and making me feeling really comfortable as solo female Traveller

The activity is well planned and the guides are friendly. Activities are also very exciting and fun.

Wonderful day out. The driver Edi made the day go well, he was fun and informative. Would do again.
