5,600,000 IDR (2 days, 4 dives)
2 buoyancy tune up dives, 2 drift dives
Hone and polish your buoyancy skills while drifting along the world-class reefs of Nusa Penida. Master the skill of planning and making a dive in currents and swell being perfectly buoyant!
Our prices include all possible charges, surcharges, fees and taxes. There won’t be anything charged on top of the published price.
We will provide you with water, tea, coffee and some snacks on the boat. We provide a sarong (a thin towel) to dry yourself and to protect you from the sun. Most sunblocks are harmful to coral and other marine life. We encourage you to use a long sleeved rash guard or the sarong provided instead. If you must use sunblock, please make sure it’s reef friendly. We also provide motion sickness medication. This works best if taken 30 minutes before you get on the boat. So let us know if you think you need one as you get to the dive center. All you have to do is, suit up, we take care of everything else!

Booking, payment and cancellation policies
Prices and extras
All prices sown in Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). To understand the approximate currency exchange rate, we recommend www.xe.com. Actual exchange rate on the island may differ significantly when it comes to certain currencies.

The description of each product or service we offer or render includes a full description of inclusions and extras.

Settling using PayPal is possible in USD, GBP and EUR. Please, mind that PayPal exchange rate of the mentioned currencies to Indonesian rupiah varies significantly from the actual one. PayPal currency exchange rates can be checked at https://ppcurrencyconverter.com.
Settling with foreign emitted (non-Indonesian) credit or debit card will attract 3% surcharge.
Safety of our guests is our top priority while planning and organising our daily dive trips.
We always choose the dive sites with the best possible conditions to bring our guests to.
Please keep in mind that some dive sites in the area are very condition dependant. Manta Bay, Manta Point and Crystal Bay are probably the most popular dive sites in the area. However these dive sites are located in the south part of Nusa Penida thus being exposed to the swell and surge the most. We can usually predict the conditions roughly 5-7 days in advance, but sometimes the mother nature behaves, making the diving on those sites impossible due to the swell.
We do not cancel our dive trips trips because of the weather (rain, clouds etc.) unless there has been an official storm warning issued by the local authorities. In this case your trip will be either rescheduled or refunded.
From our more than 13+ years experience of diving at Nusa Penida, Lembongan and Ceningan there is always a part of the island which is not affected by wind, waves etc.
Cases of natural disasters and certain anthropogenic factors – volcano eruptions, earthquakes, pandemics, floods, tsunamis, acts of war, alien invasions etc. are considered force majeur.
Please allow for the sufficient surface interval before you take a flight after your last dive. We’d recommend you to consider planning your flight no earlier than 24 hours after your last dive.
Let us know your flight time so we can adjust your booking accordingly.
We strongly recommend you book your fun diving or courses with us in advance.
In order to secure the desired dates and spots on our boat, we’ll need a 50% deposit from you. Please, make sure you understand our cancellation and refund policy below, before you make your booking.
You can contact us by either e-mail, WhatsApp or Facebook messenger in order to secure your spot on the boat for the desired date. We do our best to respond as soon as possible within our operating hours.
You can make a deposit using various methods of payment – bank transfer, PayPal and Wise.
While in Nusa Penida you can settle your bill using all of the methods mentioned above, with credit or debit card (non-Indonesian cards attract 3% surcharge) and, of course, cash.
There are several ATMs between two harbours (Toyapakeh and Sampalan), power blackouts are possible though. It would be more comfortable to have some cash on you.
Please note, that we are located on a remote island. Though we do have card facilities, sometimes the connection can be lost for hours on the whole island. Settling in cash can often be the simplest and safest option.
There are money exchange offices on the island, however exchange rates are generally way better in Bali, so it’s wise to change your money while in Bali.
Cancellation and refund policy
Life is usually full of surprises and sometimes they are not exactly what we expect.
We strongly recommend you arrange travel insurance for your holiday, which may help you to smooth out unforeseen problems that might occur during your trip (hopefully not). Such problems include (though are not limited to): illnesses, injuries, delays or cancellations of transfers etc.
If you decide to or have to cancel your booked trip or package last minute – we won’t be able to refund.
Upon completing your booking with us we will send you a booking confirmation, indicating your itinerary (meeting time, departure time, expected duration of the experience, amount of the deposit paid and the amount due). Meeting time for all ocean activities is 30 minutes prior to the departure of our boats thus allowing sufficient time for filling up all necessary paperwork and getting the matching size wetsuits and booties.
Our boats departure times on particular dates, as well as the time we start the classes and pool training are based on ocean conditions (tides) and our operating hours.

In case you will be unable to reach us in time for the booked program (dive trip, diving course, introductory program) – that will be considered a cancellation of your booking.
We will definitely do our best to help our guests out and reschedule the booked trip, though it might simply be not possible.
