Manta Bay should in fact be called Manta Bays, because the site is a succession of bays surrounded by abrupt cliffs. Certain people would call the bay at the far east, Secret Manta. The bay is shallow, and the Manta are generally visible from the surface, which determines our entry point into the water.
You will have to wait in between 15 and 25 minutes before being able to jump in and observe the Manta! The journey by boat is superbe. The landscapes of the south of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Ceningan and Nusa Penida are really worth the trip!
Manta Rays, generally a little smaller than on the site of Manta Point, but there are more. It is very commun to see their fins pop out of the water in between the waves created by the swell crashing onto the rocks on the shore. Bamboo and nurse sharks are often encountered, either sleeping under rocks, or swimming on the coral floors of the bay. It is not out of the ordinary to see dolphins on the surface but also in the water!
Soft coral, but this is not the center of interest of this site, concentrate on the Manta Rays...
Shallow dive at a depth of about 10 meters. A cleaning station for Manta Rays is at 13 meters. There is no reason to go deeper!
Kind of diving
Dive with the Manta Rays, 95% chance of seeing them all year round, not bad eh?
For all levels! If you are on an initiation, open water, advanced etc..,we will all be amazed to be swimming with a Manta Ray!

Crystal Bay is the most renowed dive site to see the Mola Mola in season from juin to november. At only 20 minutes by boat from our center on Nusa Lembongan, we have one of our boats go to this site almost everyday.
