Scuba Diving in Padang Bai is one of the amazing site around Bali. There are several very good diving sites just a few minutes away from the main beach. Driving about one and half hour from Nusa Dua and take fifteen minutes by boat from the shore to the dive sites. Not only beautiful coral and also sometimes reef shark sea turtle and octopus sighting. Blue lagoon is a coral garden that will be suitable for inexperienced diver.
This bay is one of the busiest bays in Bali, where the public ferry crosses from Bali to Lombok, white sandy beach. There are several diving sites that worth to explore Blue lagoon, Padang Bay channel, Tanjung Bungsil (Bias Putih), and Jepun.
This lagoon is just north of Tanjung Silayukti, takes 6 minutes to get here by outrigger fishing boat with the outboard vessel or even shorter by speed boat from Padang bay. Actually this is a very small bay and dive sites, in the bay grows dense sea grasses and boulder rocks covered with soft corals and Hydroids, the reef extends.
towards Turtle’s Neck (Baong Penyu). It is steep slope reef exposed to the channel, table shaped coral and a variety of Crinoids major structure of the slope. At the hook of the slope stands hard Dome corals at 15 meters, with its huge floppy sponges, swarm number of cleaning Shrimps, Black frogfishes, Leaf scorpion fishes and others unusual animals. The reef runs toward Tanjung Silayukti, lying at 10 meters gradually down the sandy slope at 15 meters. The drab bottom with scattered rocks descend down the sloping to about 18 meters, there sits dome hard corals where the unusual animals like variety of Scorpion fishes, and Crocodile fishes are commonly encountered. The scattered rocks and boulder rocks in the bay make an interesting colourful reef with variety of prolific fishes. The surge sometime is quite strong pushing toward the bay into the shallow reef and it easily causes disorientation. The water temperature is damn cold sometimes and it has ever reached 18 degrees C, good to wear long exposure suit to dive here.
To dive here we start descending from the buoy close to the ferry dock; the channel runs further east to the hook of Tanjung Silayukti. At the beginning of the dive the reef is not interesting, much more interesting around the hook of Tanjung Silayukti with scattered boulder rocks, bommies, colourful hard corals, soft corals, number of Crinoids and a variety of tropical reef fishes. Turtles are frequently seen on this steeply slope reef that runs to 30 meters deep, the current is sometimes unpredictable changing its strength and direction that pushes into deep water. Don’t let us sucked into blue water and always ascend safely from the shallow reef of Tanjung Silayukti so the boat skipper can easily provide the pick up service by the end of the diving. Water temperature is frequently fallen roughly 26 degrees C.
