    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays

    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays Trip was not as advertised.
    Collection from the hotel was straightforward and easy however the 'included boat to the island' was deceptive. We had to wait for 45 minutes in the full sun and heat to board the public ferry with 80+ others.
    Upon arriving at the island the staff were all friendly and accommodating.
    When snorkelling it became apparent that this trip was very much for beginners, which was fine except for the fact that those who are able to snorkel were not allowed to swim further than about 2 metres from the guide. As a result of this not much sea life was spotted as we were forced to stay in a close group of 25 and were repeatedly being kicked and hit by other snorkellers.
    The lunch was adequate, a small selection but traditional dishes.
    The canoeing through the mangroves was fun however again we were forced to travel in a close-knit group. Therefore the canoes were repeatedly bashing into each other and you were unable to paddle freely through the water.
    Negatives aside it was an enjoyable day, the staff were lovely and the water was beautiful. We were disappointed that the swell was too big to go to the area where the manta rays were, but that was unfortunate natural cause.
    Therefore, it was a nice day out but definitely not as glamorous as originally advertised.

    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays Although the weather was miserable and raining the whole time, the staff were still smiling and doing what they could to make the day enjoyable. Unfortunately we weren't able to visit Manta Island due to choppy conditions but I'd rather be safe than shark bait!!
    Would definitely do again!

    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays Big thanks to Tatang, Ketut, the monkey man and the team for making this trip such an amazing journey despite some rain that we had.
    **The staffs at LWS are very attentive and helpful**
    We saw 3 big mantas, 2.5meters and the snorkeling spots are simply wonderful, very colorful with many nice small fish.
    The SUP in the mangrove was lovely.. please bring your mosquito repellent though.

    Highly recommend! And I definitely will come back again!

    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays

    25% OFF Nusa Penida Snorkelling - Swim with The Manta Rays Shortly: above all the trip is nice, two of the three snorkeling spots are really amazing, the tour is well organized and the staff is super nice. The mangroove tour is nice aswell but way too short.

    I don't give 5 stars because the potential of this tour is really high and in my opinion there is room for improvement. First thing: we were lucky enough to spot at least four mantas at the first snorkeling stop, which is itself really nice due to the presence of a crack full of fishes at the bottom. It was awesome, but after 20 or so minutes we were pulled out of the water. Why? Most of the people won't ever have the chance to swim with mantas ever again and the title of this activity is "swim with the mantas". Give me 10 minutes more, not 10 less, then if you need time for the schedule take it from the lunch break or the second snorkeling stop which is really nothing special. Anyway.. The third snorkeling point is really cool and unique.

    Second thing: during lunch time we were asked if we preferred sup, kayak or gondola for the mangrove tour. We picked sups. Unfortunately there are only 4 sups for roughly 20 people, so the staff decided we had to switch to kayaking, we were really looking forward to sup in the mangroves but I can understand. I don't know with which criteria the sups were assigned, but I started to have some doubts about it on the way back when we crossed people sitting on the sup, using it as a.. Kayak. Maybe it would make sense to give sups to somebody that can actually use it or much better make few more available. And once again, the experience was very nice, but really too short.
