Drift Diving in Bali
The dive sites around north side of Nusa Penida are well-known among divers especially for great drift diving. Nusa Penida has lots of different dive sites, so you and your dive guide will be always able to find one with suitable conditions depending on your diving experience and interest. The coral reefs around Penida are several kilometres long and you can dive the whole length of them in a series of dives, current permitting.
The reefs on Nusa Penida are simply stunning. Drifting over beautiful and colourful coral gardens with big schools of reef fish is an unforgettable experience. If you like to feel underwater like in the fish soup north Nusa Penida in Bali is the place to be. Visibility on these dove sites is usually more than 25 meters and the water is clear blue and warm, just as every diver likes it. The reef is built manly on steep slope and is full of big sponges, soft coral, hard coral and big coral blocks with lots and lots of marine life.
Around 20-25m on this slope there is a good chance of seeing large pelagic (ocean-going fish) like manta rays or eagle rays, tuna, barracuda, and even mola-mola in the season. During the surface interval it can be fun to watch the seaweed farmers working their ‘patch’ along the coast.
