DIVING TUGU, NUSA PENIDA
On the north coast of Nusa Penida, Tugu dive site is located next to Ped, SD, Sental and Buyuk walls. These 5 dives are among the most beautiful drift dives of Bali. Characterized by its proximity to the ferry port of Sampalan, Tugu is particularly pleasant to dive.
We practice here drift diving, as on the sites mentioned above. On the wall, the diversity is great and one can see and observe a large quantity of fauna and flora. Because of its proximity to the ferry line, you must remain extremely careful not to go back to the surface in its path! The instructor will guide you to avoid this!
Your guide will show you the macro present on this place. For example, the many varieties of Nudibranchs, crabs and even ghost fish. It is indeed a real treasure hunt which allows even experienced divers to have stars in their eyes! However, it is still necessary to have good buoyancy to observe the macro! An ill-advised palm stroke could prevent you from observing what your guide is showing you. You will also have to be patient because we do not find ghost fish or other rare creatures with the first anemone!

Once we saw a small Mola Mola jumping out of the sea at Tugu dive site ! But we cannot promise we will see another one…
