Nusa Lembogan, Ceningan and Penida

The dive sites around the three islands of Nusa Lembongan, Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan offer divers the widest possible range of experiences.
The dive site of Mangrove is a stunning shelving reef with healthy coral gardens stretching from just below the surface down to 30 metres. The fish life is rich and varied and the visibility can stretch to 30 metres or more.
Around the corner to the east, Ceningan Wall is an exciting drift with the bottom dropping away to 100 metres or more. The walls are alive with soft an hard corals and large palegics swim by in the depths.
Penida Bay, also known as Crystal Bay, is where the Mola Mola can be seen from July through until August. These majestic creatures come in to be cleaned by banner fish and other reef fish. They rest head up in the deep cool waters of the bay surounded by a cloud of bright fish which remove parasites from their skin. They allow divers to approach quite close and offer incredible photo oportunities.
Though the islands have a reputation for wild currents, there are dive operations that ensure the best possible diving conditions by diving with the rising tide and selecting suitable sites (there are 18 to choose from) with mild currents. Most of the dives are drift dives, so there is no need to struggle against the flow. Just allow the current to drift you along the reef and enjoy the show!

Red Coral Reef

   Malta  Mediterranean Sea
Red Coral Reef is a dive that you can stay just about as long as you like. It is only 10 meters deep so your deco time is a gift from god:) also since it is not deep the colors shout out at you and it is one of the few places in the med you can see the red coral. It is located right off St Julians. We had gone with one of the dive shops in St Julians (Neptunes Dive Center).
They have a dive boat and it only took us 5 min from the base to get there. If you like colors this will be the dive for you!

Izu Oshima

   Japan  Pacific
SCUBA diving in Izu Oshima is somewhat unique from other dive sites at similar range of latitude world wide. Since the island is about 40km remote from mainland, and partially affected by warm Black Current from Philippine Sea, water is clear and extremely wide variety of marine lives are seen. Different creatures and different habits are observed at every time of dive even though you dive the same point repetitively.

Guided dives by extremely knowledgeable staffs are another great advantage in this island. Since those staffs dive the same place almost everyday, sometimes more than once a day, they know almost every pieces of creatures living in every holes and cracks of rocks. They not only just give you names of those creatures but also brief you how they lives, such as holding and protecting eggs, and how they grows.

The island is surrounded mostly by rocky coast, but sandy beaches are limited. There are no coral reefs along the coast, but some hard corals can be seen in limited places. Warm water current, so called Black Current, from Philippine Sea is flowing off southern end of the island, and partially reaches west coast of the island. This current brings many kinds of sea lives from tropic ocean, and those are often seen during September to December. However, as water is cooled down by strong cold wind from North in winter season, those tropical creatures die and disappears.

Another current with cold and nutrition rich water is flowing from deep see floor to east coast surface of the island. Therefore many fishes from small to big are gathering to these area. Huge school of sardines, snappers are often seen, especially during the autumn season. Jack fishes, tunas, sharks and even whales are also found chasing those schools quite often.

Water temperature rises to 24C at highest during September-October, but drops down to 14C at lowest during March-April.

I have prepared a detailed guide to Izu Oshima for foreign divers convenience at the following URL.

   Malaysia  Celebes Sea
Sipidan and Mabul off the coast of Borneo, Malaysia was one of the best dive locations ever.
Where else can you get the big fish and macro life just 1 island away. When Sipidan had the resorts, you could literally walk out from your beach bungalow to the pristine Celebes Sea and experience white tip and Black tip sharks, loads or huge Hawsbill turtles, Humpheads, Barracuda and nearly every colorful sea life imaginable for a sunset dive.Or take the speed boat 5 minutes to the dive sites where wall dives and reefs and the open blue offer huge sharks, including scalloped hammerheads, nurse and thrasher sharks galore.

Then onto Mabul which is a 15 minute boat ride away, one can see Corocodile fish, large Frog fish in a multitude of colors, Mantis shrimp, ribbon eels, huge Giant Morays,and finally a Pygmy Seahorse that was so hideen in the fan coral that you almost needed a magnifying glass to see it. So beautiful and delicate, its hard to imagine how it ever survives. The list goes on and on.

Truly a Paradise for Divers!!
