Full description

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.

We had such an amazing time! The driver picked us up from our hotel and took us to the harbour where everything was sorted for us and we met our guide there. They provided flippers and snorkels & we were able to see around 5 mantarays but had to venture into some rocky seas, however it was 100% worth it. They provided towels and showers which we weren’t expecting. The lunch was fab & the kayaking in the mangroves was very relaxing and pleasant. Would recommend to anyone who needs a tour, everyone was super welcoming.

An unforgettable experience. I was a little anxious about this as I am not a strong swimmer however the team provided life vests for anyone who is a little unsure. We were lucky enough to see a good few mantas as well. This would have been an amazing trip even if we didn’t get to see the mantas however seeing them up so close was just amazing. The guides were fabulous too.

The tour today was outstanding - the guides were all very nice and everyone who asked for help got it. We also saw some manta rays and were sooo happy about it. The food was great and so was the atmosphere in the group and in the whole team. We would love to do the tour again!
