Snorkelling Menjangan Island
Snorkelling Menjangan Island, a day trip to an undersea Treasure Island
Inside Taman National Bali Barat, Northwest Bali’s National Park.
Menjangan Island, sail away for a day and enjoy the natural beauty of this ‘Treasure of Buleleng’. Trips leave from the beach, we have private speedboats, fast & comfortable. We leave at 08.30, and it takes about 30 minutes to get to the island, depending on weather and sea conditions, of course. And because we have private boats, we are free to choose locations based on the previous factors and how busy other locations are. Nobody likes a crowded snorkelling location, so we try to find somewhere quieter.
You’ll usually spend about an hour at one location before moving to the beach for a break of an hour or more, a light lunch & soft drinks are provided. You can also find some good snorkelling from the beach. Thereafter, you move to a third location for another hour before returning to Pemuteran bay, typically back before 14.00.
Be warned however that there is a National Park entrance fee of 200,000Rps per person, per day (300,000Rps on Sundays and National holidays). This additional fee is payable on-site.
Snorkelling Pemuteran Bay
Snorkelling Pemuteran Bay, a short swim
You can enjoy some of our local reefs simply by stepping off the beach, but a short boat ride away you’ll find a range of undersea treasures. Coral bommie, flat tops, steep slopes and small walls, all full of colourful marine life.
The shoreside, off the beach attractions are all easily accessible. Just down at the beach on the more westerly side of the bay, you’ll find the Pemuteran BioRock™ reef restoration project. Sixty plus, plus metal structures of all shapes and sizes, which run off a mild electric current to create an artificial reef via a process known as electrolysis. Existing corals that attached to the frames and those around them are stimulated to grow faster and are apparently resistant to climate change.
Towards the centre of the bay is a more natural reef formation with entry points clearly marked for snorkellers. This is to encourage people to use a fixed entry point and not walk all over the corals, which is bad for both the reef and your feet.
To the east end of the bay is the fishing village, where you’ll find a jetty. This is also our boat departure point. Though this area of the bay is mainly dark sand and little coral, it is still teeming with small sea life. Beneath the jetty in particular, you’ll see our little critters’ haven, ‘Mucky Pirate’s Bay’. Why is it called that, you ask. Well, it’s mucky, we’re pirates and it’s a bay. But be aware of your surroundings. This is a fishing community and the departure point for the local dive boats. Boat traffic can be heavy in the morning and afternoon.
Or a 5-minute boat ride brings you to new sights
For better visibility and more coral, a boat to the many local reefs is a better option. Whether you want a single, double, or triple boat trips, the snorkelling in Pemuteran Bay offers a short 5-minute boat ride to a wide range of Adventure. Trips usually scheduled to leave at 09.00 and 13.00, but with the reefs being so close, we can be a bit more flexible.
Snorkelling beneath the stars for something different. Night snorkelling is an interesting new perspective, as here there be night critters to look at.
Digital GoPro rentals available to capture your own well found treasures are available.
Again, we believe that snorkellers are people too. So we welcome all aboard our vessels and mix our groups to suit. However, groups are always small and we like to keep things personal.
