Freedive Nusa Penida
Home to the Mola Mola Sunfish , Nusa penida is a great place to freedive with some of the larger marine life. Tricky and often strong currents mean its not the best place for training, however, with an experienced guide it is the perfect place to swim with Manta Rays which often frequent the imaginatively named “Manta Point” .
Once the rainy season is over we will be starting to offer regular trips to Penida if you are interested in joining then give us a call or send us an email.
