The Manta Ray Snorkeling Bali is one of the best Manta spots in the world. Because here is the chance to see a big manta ray in person, and at that its a 90+% chance to see them. Particularly good chances exist in September and October. In these months, especially many Manta Rays are located at Manta Point Nusa Penida.
The large manta rays have a span of about 2 to 7 meters and move truly royally through the sea. Fortunately, the Bali Mantas are safe and do not attack people. You can drive without worries to the Nusa Penida Manta Point and marvel at the animals in their full beauty.
Location and access to Manta Point Bali:
The island of Nusa Penida belongs to Bali and is known e.g. from Sanur and Padang Bai by speedboat or ferry to reach. From Sanur, the speedboat ride takes just 30 minutes. So you can visit Manta Point Bali well on a day trip. The Bali Manta Point itself is located on the west coast of Nusa Penida.
Organized trips to Nusa Penida Manta Point from Bali:
If your accommodation is located in Jimbaran, Nusa Dua, Kuta, Seminyak, Legian, Canggu, Ubud or Sanur, you can easily take organized trips for Manta Ray Snorkeling Bali. If you are planning a day trip to Manta Point Nusa Penida from Bali we recommend the snorkeling tour of getting your guide.
In addition to the Manta Point Bali, you can admire the colorful and fish-rich underwater world in addition to two other snorkeling spots. These include the Manta Point Nusa Penida and the popular snorkeling areas Crystal Bay, Toyapakeh and Gamat Bay.
Trips from Nusa Lembongan to Bali Manta Point:
The neighboring island of Nusa Lembongan is located near Nusa Penida. It is located north of the Manta Point and therefore also offers you a very good starting point for a visit to the Bali Mantas. By boat, you need about 45 minutes to Manta Point.
However, as the distance is greater, a Manta Tour from Nusa Lembongan costs a bit more than from Crystal Bay to Nusa Penida. If you plan to stay snorkeling on Nusa Penida after the Manta, you can ask the tour providers to let you out at Crystal Bay. In this case, you can take your luggage with you on the boat and waive the return to Nusa Lembongan.
Self-organized journey from Sanur to Manta Point Nusa Penida:
If you want to go on your own to Bali Manta Point, there are two recommended ways to do so. Either you drive to the port of Sanur and take a speedboat from there. Or you can hire a transfer service by boat. The ticket office can be found on the access road to the harbor directly on the left side.
In addition, there are numerous other providers for the crossing that you all find along the harbor. The prices are identical or higher from our experience. The speedboats leave at different times from about 7 o’clock in the morning. They can take a speedboat transfer every hour, so you do not have to wait too long at the port.
