Bali underwater rivals some of the best Papua New Guinea has to offer. Dive with Mantas, sharks, turtles and big pelagics or go muck diving instead.
Everyone's been to Bali and the smart ones all say the same thing: if you really want to appreaciate this small Indonesian island - it's just 140 by 80 kilometres - you should leave the bustling tourist areas of Kuta and Legian and get about among the people, enjoy their friendly personas and experience their unique culture. Take in the hillside rice paddies, 3,000- metre holy mountains and dense tropical jungles. The wild monkeys, old lava flows and the dry, desert- like landscapes.
Seeing the sights can be even more rewarding for divers, because to complement the stunning attractions above the surface, Bali underwater rivals some of the best that Papua New Guinea has to offer. Stunning sights like the spectacular 40-metre drop-off of Lembongan Island and the Mantas, sharks, turtles and big pelagics at Nusa Penida. There are great shore dives, too - the coral-encrusted wreck of the USS Liberty and the Whale Sharks at Tulamben. Water Temperature is on average 27-30C. Muck dive at secret bay for unique marine cratures, The USS Liberty wreck as one of the best wreck dive in the world. July - September is Mola Mola (Sun Fish) seasson at Nusa Penida. The ocean sunfish vies for the title of strangest fish in the sea. This gentle giant has been recorded to weigh up to two tons (with an average weight of 1 ton) and inhabits all tropical and temperate seas. They are frequently seen basking in the sun near the surface and are often mistaken for sharks when their huge dorsal fins emerge above the water. Their teeth are fused into a beak-like structure and they are unable to fully close their relatively small mouths. They are harmless to people, but can be very curious and will often approach divers.*
