Overall it was a wonderful trip, Dewa was a wonderful caring guide. Communication with the company was not easy for some reason, but it all worked out. So if you are control freak like me: the ferry is a regular ferry, not a tourist ferry. You are taken to the restaurant/ diving center for morning juice and than headed to the boat from the dock to the first dive stop. Yes, it does get choppy at open water. Manta Rays like choppy water. The second dive was Nusa Dua and the third was Cenningan Island. The lunch was great, the dive center is beautiful. The only thing I didn't like was the crowded ferry, otherwise I highly recommend this tour.

We loved this trip! Such great value for money - everything was taken care of and Topan was the the best guide we could have asked for, he knew all the best spots and showed us so much more than we expected, not to mention he was so friendly. We can't recomend this trip enough.

The waters were absolutely beautiful. Swimming with the mana ray was a great experience. I forgot my underwater camera so I was very disappointed that I did not get any shots of the beautiful coral reefs.

Wonderful experience. I didn’t realize that lunch and kayaking was included, so that was a pleasant surprise. We saw lots of fish, coral and manta ray! Great guides too.

unforgettable experience the snorkeling the guides very friendly
