BEST TIME OF YEAR TO DIVE NUSA PENIDA:
Diving around Nusa Penida is fantastic all year round. During the rainy season the rains primarily happen in the late afternoon and evening, making diving very feasible, and sites are less busy. The ocean temperature during this time is warm and comfortable.
The marine life is consistently spectacular. During the peak season between June - November the water is much cooler, crisp and visibility is fantastic.
During this time you will have a high chance of seeing a Mola/Oceanic Sunfish/Moonfish. Our local manta population is here for 11 of 12 months of the year and the reefs are healthy and colourful 365 days of the year.
