Diving Bali - Nusa Lembongan Dive Sites

 

DIVE NUSA PENIDA - NUSA LEMBONGAN - NUSA CENINGAN

Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan lie approximately 18 Nm east of Sanur and a similar distance south from Padang Bai. Trips from Bali typically take 30 to 45 minutes to reach these islands, depending on the boat and sea conditions.

Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan offer some of best diving to be found anywhere. Most of the dives here will be drift dives and the current can reach more than 4 knots. For those of you not well versed in knots, that's FAST. Superman fast! 

I've been able to dive the entire length of the channel between Lembongan and Ceningan, north end to sound end, during falling tide. Due to the velocity of these currents, these are not typically good places to try macro-photography.

Upwelling from the deep waters south of Bali keep the visibility in these areas good, but they can form thermoclines with temperatures dropping down to a chilly 22 C. If you notice that most of the fish are staying above a certain depth, expect colder waters just below them. 

Pelagics are the main attraction here. Sharks are common and big mantas are frequently sighted in season. The most unusual pelagic to visit Nusa Lembongan ( Late July - Early October) is the Mola Mola or ocean sunfish Expect your air consumption to jump when you see one of these giants. The best chances of seeing the mola mola are 2 days after either a full or new moon, as the upwelling due to currents is the greatest and the cold waters are nearer the surface.
