Day 3
Nusa Penida Dives
On this day we will depart from Padang Bai to dive sites called Manta point and SD. On the way to the sites, you will enjoy spectacular views of the peeking islands bursting with greenery. Manta Point is a limestone outcrop of Tanjung Pandan near the west coast of Nusa Penida. As the name suggests, at Manta Point we will have an encounter with the mantas that come here to be cleaned. Manta rays often circle above the divers' heads for long periods of time, getting tickled by the bubbles on their bellies, and seem to enjoy the divers' company.
SD is on the north side of Nusa Penida and here we are in for a wonderful drift dive. We'll be carried along by the current, which makes for perfect visibility, and enjoy a show where we'll see huge coral formations, an abundance of tropical fish, sea turtles and other life.

You can look forward to encounters with whitetip reef sharks, cuttlefish, moray eels, and a variety of small life. Gili Mimpang and Tepekong are guaranteed to delight any underwater photographer.

Day 6
Dive on the wreck of the USS Liberty, Tulamben
Today we will experience two dives on the huge wreck of the USS Liberty, which has an interesting story behind it. The USS Liberty is a 120 meter wreck of an American supply ship that was hit by a Japanese torpedo during World War II. The US Navy's plan to tow it to the port of Singaraja in northern Bali failed because the port was occupied in the meantime. Therefore, the ship was deliberately driven aground on a stone beach at Tulamben, where her cargo was safely unloaded. However, in 1963, Mount Agung, the volcano towering above Tulamben, exploded and a flow of magma pushed the ship off the beach and back into the sea, where it currently rests at depths of 3 to 29 metres. Since then, the shipwreck has been covered in a rich layer of coral that has transformed it into home to an incredible variety of fish and invertebrates. The area around the wreck is regularly frequented by large flatfish, napoleons and barracudas. We'll dive the wreck on two dives and marvel at the abundance of life that has made it its home.
- Accommodation: private villa Casa DouDou


Day 7
Nusa Penida Dives
This day we have two more dives around Nusa Penida - Crystal Bay and Toyapakeh dive sites. Crystal Bay is one of the best places in the world to encounter the fascinating sunfish (mola-mola) and Toyapakeh is a site with spectacular soft and hard coral formations. At both dive sites, we will of course be treated to a huge variety of fish, moray eels, cuttlefish and octopus. There is also the chance of dolphins.
- Accommodation: private villa Casa DouDou

Day 8
Blue Corner Dives, Nusa Penida
Blue Corner is a unique dive site off Nusa Penida with interesting topography and powerful currents. This combination of currents and terrain with breaks and terraces is ideal for encounters especially with large animals such as manta rays, rays, sharks and moonfish. Blue Corner is more difficult to dive due to the currents, but it is worth it and can easily become an absolutely unforgettable experience. We've also seen several hammerhead sharks, dolphins and a school of eagle rays at Blue Corner. Our second dive will be around Nusa Penida.
- Accommodation: private villa Casa DouDou

A pre-departure day for relaxation, beach, and tranquillity with the opportunity to walk around the beautiful villa surroundings where there is another white virgin beach
