Tulamben Dive Sites Recommendation
« on: 07 Nov 16, 16:17 »
Yeah, I'm booked for Tulamben next Feb! Can veterans here suggest dive sites nearby for big fish/manta spotting? I'm going to be staying at Bali Dive Resort. Thank you, thank you.

no mantas for sure (maybe I am wrong). But you do have a chance to see the whalesharks or Mola Mola

How's the diving in Bali in Feb? I thought it's off-season then.
My heart remains in Nusa Lembongan

No mantas for sure, and molas off season.
Mantas you will need to dive around Nusa Penida.

If you get lucky there are some whale shaks sightings but not super common.

The wreck itself is great but also lots of nice dives in the area.
You can mainly find me underwater in Bali, Indonesia

Actually Bali is ok to dive all year round. Just that it'll keep raining during Feb - April if I'm not wrong. I went in Feb last year. There are sunny days too. Waves can be huge, currents are pretty strong on the surface. But it's OK once you descend.

I personally love the wreck. But there are many awesome sites like Drop-Off (where i took my first pymgy), Emerald (where i spotted my first white tip shark) and of course Seraya Secrets (where i had a hard time taking my first Doto and Shawn the Sheep)!!  :P :P
