DIVE PADANG BAI


DIVE PADANG BAI

When you dive Padang Bai, you are guaranteed some of the most, gentle and relaxing diving in all of Bali. Padang Bai is known throughout the island as a place where you can swim at your ease while enjoying all the sights that the aquarium like conditions can show you.

Blue Lagoon

  • Average depth: 16m
  • Average visibility: Good
  • Average current: Light
  • Average temperature on surface: 28°C
  • Average temperature on bottom: 27°C

Diving in Blue Lagoon is like diving in an aquarium with a huge variety of marine life including Turtles, Moray and Ribbon Eels, Cuttlefish, Bigfin Reef Squid and many species of Nudibranch. Maximum depth on this scuba site is 18 meters.

 

Blue Lagoon Dropoff

  • Average depth: 20m
  • Average visibility: Good
  • Average current: Light
  • Average temperature on surface: 29°C
  • Average temperature on bottom: 24°C

On the northern side of Blue Lagoon, we have Blue Lagoon Dropoff. Beginning at the surface and bottoming out at about 35 meters, Dropoff is one of our Instructor favourites with many nooks and crannies for marine life to take a rest from the mild current that can sometimes be found here. Scorpionfish and different types of Pufferfish, Lionfish and Zebrafish are commonly spotted here.

 

Jepun

  • Average depth: 18m
  • Average visibility: Good
  • Average current: Light
  • Average temperature on surface: 28°C
  • Average temperature on bottom: 26°C

Just around the headland from Blue Lagoon is the dive site of Jepun. While it is not the most beautiful dive site in the world, what this site lacks in beauty it makes up for in the astonishing variety of fish. Multiple types of Nudibranch, Harlequin Mantis Shrimp, Blue-Spotted Stingrays and schools of Sergeant Major Fish and Trevally can be sighted here and Cuttlefish are common. In between 19 and 24 meters there is a small wreck that is home to many Pufferfish, Snappers and the occasional Napoleon Wrasse.

 

Bias Tugal

  • Average depth: 25m
  • Average visibility: Good
  • Average current: Light
  • Average temperature on surface: 28°C
  • Average temperature on bottom: 22°C

Rounding off the list of easily accessible dive sites at Padang Bai is Bias Tugal. This site is blessed with a nice mix of open sea and bay reef diving and is a fantastic place to see Napoleon Wrasse, Bumphead Parrotfish, Giant Pufferfish and Reef Octopus. At around 14 meters there is a small overhang where Whitetip Reef Sharks are commonly seen during the day, resting.

 

Jetty

  • Average depth: 20m
  • Average visibility: Good
  • Average current: Moderate
  • Average temperature on surface: 28°C
  • Average temperature on bottom: 24°C

If you want to see some truly unusual and rare marine life, then this is the dive site for you. Jetty is a muck dive between 16 and 24 meters, which means that the coral is limited here and this allows us to spot fish that are normally squirreled away in the reefs during the day. Leaf Scorpionfish, Stonefish, Frogfish, Blotched Porcupinefish, Giant Moray Eels, Garden Eels, Lionfish, Flounder, Stingray, Batfish and Harlequin Mantis Shrimp are in abundance here, making Jetty a fantastic dive site for photography or just fun diving. Simply not to be missed.
