From Bali: Swim with Manta Rays in Nusa Penida
- Transportation included
- Duration: 9 hours
Overall it was a wonderful trip, Dewa was a wonderful caring guide. Communication with the company was not easy for some reason, but it all worked out. So if you are control freak like me: the ferry is a regular ferry, not a tourist ferry. You are taken to the restaurant/ diving center for morning juice and than headed to the boat from the dock to the first dive stop. Yes, it does get choppy at open water. Manta Rays like choppy water. The second dive was Nusa Dua and the third was Cenningan Island. The lunch was great, the dive center is beautiful. The only thing I didn't like was the crowded ferry, otherwise I highly recommend this tour.
I am not a confident swimmer (deep water freaks me out) but this day trip was amazing. The crew made me feel safe and comfortable the whole time. We were lucky enough to see a Manta Ray and Turtles as well as a ton of colourful fish. Lunch was also really enjoyable. This was followed by a 30min kayaking session in the mangroves which was also very fun. We saw a large lizard and a ton of crabs during this. Highly recommend this day trip to everyone.
This is a great introduction to the entire island. If you only have a short time in Bali, or you are traveling solo and want some help with great photographs, this is ideal. It’s also great for families with small kids as they have an option for a safari-like bus ride around the island. It’s expensive, but it was a seamless VIP experience and I was happy not to have to plan anything.
We were lucky enough to see 4 Rays on our day in addition to plenty of fish!!! The areas that the rays are located can be quiet rough so if you a prone to sea sickness it is definitely worth bringing sea sickness medication along. The staff are great, very experienced and friendly - have wonderful first aid training and knowledge of the area. Would definitely recommend!!!!
AMAZING!!! Team did a tremendous job- I had so many laughs, everything gone smoothly, I didn’t have to think of everything-hosted perfectly! Not to mention that I was so lucky to see 3 mantas!!! And Team also did beautiful photos with gopro underwater and tried their best to make sure you like them :) sites were majestic, views- breathtaking, I highly recommend this tour!
