What to expect
The dive shop is conveniently located close to the restaurant so you can pop over any time to get fitted for gear hire or find out about the diving activities.
The Resort offers daily dives on Menjangan Island. A local boat is secured for the day’s diving, and usually you’ll go out for at least two dives in the morning; the afternoon is negotiable. The transfer out to Menjangan Island is about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the speed of the boat. Morning tea (fruit and pastries) is supplied and there’s always plenty of water to refill your bottle with. (As stated elsewhere, local fishermen have been granted exclusive rights to passenger transfers, in exchange for recognising certain areas as no-take zones to ensure that are kept in good condition as dive sites).
Menjangan Island. Our dive guide’s favourites were Dream Wall and Coral Garden, both vertical walls that drop down to a sandy bottom at about 30m. The walls are adorned with lots of enormous Gorgonian fans and colourful sponges and soft corals. The area is within the Bali Barat National Park, a marine protected strictly No Take Zone, so expect to see lots of marine life including large schools of reef fish and plenty of turtles.
If you’d like to explore the muck diving and Bio Rock project in Pemuteran, a driver can be booked to take you through town for a couple of shore dives, with packed lunch provided. Whilst you’re there, you’d probably want to do the infamous Pemuteran Jetty muck dive. I will be very surprised just how much there is to find down there.
