Board your high-powered dive boat in Sanur for the journey to Nusa Penida. The conditions for seeing manta rays at Manta Point are best in the morning, so that will be your first stop. Even if you’ve never snorkeled before, your group’s private guide helps you learn the basics of breathing through a snorkel, clearing a snorkel, and finning effectively.

      Wonderful overall experience
      Snorkelling with the mantas was incredible and the diving at the other spots were some of the most beautiful dives we’ve ever done. Neptune dive equipment was in superb condition, the staff were amazing- friendly, professional and fun. We would highly recommend using them!

      Amazing diving experience and friendly staff
      The staff at Neptune were very attentive in getting everything booked and answering all of my questions prior to our dive. Our dive guide Gude was great and really kept a close eye on my girlfriend who is new to diving and made her feel very safe. We saw lots of Mantas and an incredible amount of corals and diversity of fish on the drift dive. The lunch was also very tasty. Amazing experience! Thank you

      Pleasant dive experience
      My husband and I had a very pleasant experience diving with Mully. The equipment provided were new and well maintained. We felt safe diving with Mully even when were drift diving with the currents. In calmer waters, he took the time to let us explore various dive sites including Manta Point. Mully is a very experienced diver and he planned the dives well. The boat ride to the dive sites was comfortable. We met divers from othet dive shops as well. Neptune arranged for pick up and drop off services to our resort in Sayan. They even had breakfast prepared for us as we had to leave the resort early. I was amazed at how beautiful and healthy the reefs were. We saw multiple manta rays too. I would highly recommend Neptune to any divers who are looking for a dive shop in Bali.

      Excellent dive company!
      Great company, great trip. We booked this off a cruise ship and Yoga was great with communication. He answered all our questions promptly and designed the perfect day for us. From the second Neptune divers picked us up everything was top notch. The company had all our equipment in bags labeled with our names. Their equipment is top of the line and they made sure everything fit and that we had everything before we headed to the boat. There were 7 divers and 4 crew plus the Captain. The boat had plenty of room and they had all our equipment set up. They also prepared us for a bumpy ride and offered us sea sick pills before we left the shop. We did 3 dives and they were all spectacular and yes we did see mantas. It is hard to stay in a group for the manta dive since it is so popular but the crew did a good job keeping up with us. The second dive was in a cove so much smoother but still perfect and healthy reef, tons of fish and lots of my favorite, clown fish. They had packed us a lunch (we picked what we wanted from their selection) and it was excellent and it really hit the spot. The 3rd dive was a drift dive and again tons of fish and coral. The crew did all the work setting up gear which is good for me since I am prone to motion sickness. I felt very safe with Neptune divers and highly recommend. It was probably some of the best diving ever and a great company. Hoping to go back to Bali and spend more time diving and will defiantly use Neptune divers. Thank you to Yoga and the excellent crew.

      Coolest diving experience!!!
      This trip was so much fun. The staff and boat crew and dive guides were all so friendly and accommodating and professional! The drift dive was amazing and so much fun! It was worth the whole day just to do the drift dive. I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone!

      Mantas and Mollas
      Wow. What a day. Firstly well done to Neptune Diving. Everything was really smooth and professional from the hotel pick up, getting our hire gear sorted and the boat trip out and back. The boys on the boat were terrific. Good dive briefings, really good attention during the dive, setting up the equipment for the next dive and a lovely lunch. So everything in their control was done well. Of course, when diving Mother Nature has its role to play. We did two dives at Chrystal Bay and one at Manta Ray point. Our dive at Manta Ray was just that. Lots of Mantas that came in really close. Awesome. We honestly thought nothing could match that and whether we would do the third and final dive. Good job we did. We got to see three of the rare Molla Molla Sunfish including one that paid us a close visit and was in no hurry to leave us. Such a wonderful experience. We had a great day out!

      Great family experience
      I booked this dive school based of recommendations on Reddit r/scuba and they did not disappoint (I typically find reddit community recommendations very reliable). We traveled to Bali from Singapore specifically to do our open water diver certification as a family. Since I am parent diving with my teenage children I am extremely safety conscious and wanted industry best practices to be followed. I wanted my family to learn to enjoy this sport in the safest way possible and for my teens to understand the importance of following the guidelines an practices set by PADI and local authorities and learn to dive safely. Neptune scuba school was patient, gentle and encouraging. We had 2 instructors for our family of 4 the entire time. They were extremely patient w/ my 12 year old daughter who was often dramatic and a bit obnoxious. We took extra breaks when needed but they ensured we were all able to complete all the skills independently that are required for the open water diver certification. We had such a great experience that after completing the 3 day OW course we added on an extra day of diving and went with them to Nusa Penida. Swimming with the giant reef manta rays was definitely a top ten lifetime experience for me. We made unforgettable memories as a family and I highly recommend Neptune scuba diving for anyone interested in trying this sport, getting training, or looking for a reputable dive master.

      Neptune- A class on their own
      As a qualified PADI Divemaster, I am always interested in the competency and professionalism of the dive shops I dive with. Neptune were awesome. From Yoga making sure that the free shuttle picked me up on time at my hotel, to the dive and boat crew who made sure I was fully briefed, my equipment was correctly set up and that I had an unforgettable experience seeing Manta Rays, Sun fish, a wealth of coral fish and "heart of hearts" a turtle! Ochi my local guide had over 20 years of experience and it really showed in his attitude, calmness and professionalism. My partner did not dive, but instead she snorkelled. She loved it, and I appreciated the way the crew made sure her day was just as good as mine. If I ever go back to Bali, I know where I will be diving. Thank you Neptune team!!!!!!

      Top tier operation, don’t miss the drift dive in Lembongan!!
      Professional operation and guides, Neptune ticked all the boxes for what was promised and more. Although the sites are naturally crowded due to their popularity, the Neptune team had us picked up and on our way to the next site quickly and safely. I can’t stress enough how amazing the drift dive at Lembongan was. Truly a dive I will remember for life, just spectacular. If you can only do one dive in Bali I would pick this spot every time! The most fun I’ve had diving for years. A+++

    Neptune is one of my favourite diving Centers. Did a full day fun dive w Neptune, the whole experience is really great. The service is good, Joe really took good care of each individual, try to maximise our time of diving, she is very experienced and definitely know where to bring you to see things. And the boat man is observant and helpful too. Really enjoyed the day trip, would love to come back again.

    We had the most amazing snorkeling experience with Neptune! Everything was organized extremely well and they thought it through in most detailed way possible (e.g. even got water bottles with our own names and safety measures were taken at all times). We saw beautiful Manta Rays and turtles!!! The staff was super friendly and really experienced so we felt really safe and in good hands with them. And to complete the experience the lunch at the end of the trip was super tasty! So do not doubt about booking with Neptune, just do it!!!!!

    We have had the most amazing day ever. From arriving at the stunning Scuba centre (super clean and well managed) to the most beautiful day out at sea. We booked our trip in advance via WhatsApp and the service/replies have been second to none. We picked the three stop trip which included a delicious lunch, snacks and drinks provided. It was beyond special to see the majestic mantra rays and sea turtles let alone all the beautiful fish and coral reef. Would 100% recommend Neptune and would love to visit them again. The staff are more than welcoming, kind and willing to help in any way possible. Book here and you won’t regret it!

    This tour was incredible and delivered what it said it would - we saw so so many Manta rays, the guides were excellent and very helpful making sure we were within their sights at all times. Drift snorkelling was amazing , saw so much coral, colourful fish and was so relaxing and peaceful. The snorkelling, and guides I would score a 5. I have only given a 4 out of 5 as were as a group underwhelmed (not disappointed , just underwhelmed ) with the lunch and location of the lunch - trivial I know but trip advisor is asking for feedback so this is our constructive feedback . We thought we would maybe eat at one of the beaches - picnic on the beach or on a pontoon etc . We all were handed a lunchbox with either rice or noodles, like a school lunch and the boat docked in a small wharf where we were told to eat on the boat (small boat for our group only ) which was not pretty and toilets on the wharf were locked. To be fair, the tour doesnt say "eat on a beach or buffet lunch etc so their wording is not misleading , we just had thought that would occur as previous snorkelling trips we had done provide that, so it was our interpretation only and not misrepresentation) . Had Neptune tours had docking rights for one of the beaches it would have been a more pleasant lunch experience. So snorkelling and amazing guides 5/5, overall experience on the whole day 4/5.

    We did a snorkeling trip on February 28, 2023.
    We where 4 people and from the start at sea we saw that it was quite rough. We still went to Manta Point hoping to see manta rays there.
    But the snorkeling conditions were difficult due to the rough seas and Mother Nature made sure that even the rays were not there.

    So we leave to do our 2 other snorkeling trips, including an exceptional one at Mengrove point where the corals were really healthy, which gave extraordinary images.

    On our return we discussed the first snorkeling trip to see the manta rays and the very difficult snorkeling conditions and so the agency gave us a partial refund as compensation. We can say that the agency listened to us and acted professionally towards us.

    Thanks to the whole team

    Fast boat was full-loaded by passengers. No space, too many tourists side by side. Snorkeling spots too crowded by other boats and tourists. Horrible! Snorkeling time to short and stressful. Don't expect to see any mantas or dolphins. Once you realize what I mean you will understand why don't you see any Mantas.

    This review is misplaced on our TripAdvisor product. The reviewer's name has not been found on our guest manifests in the previous 6 months. Also, Neptune Scuba Diving does not provide fast boat services between Bali and Nusa Penida. Fast boat services are provided by different companies not related to us in any way. Our snorkeling trips are organized and led by professional PADI Divemasters or Instructors with thousands of dives across decades of experience. We run each trip with professional speedboats specially designed for diving and snorkeling. In the water we have a standard of minimum 45-60 minutes of water time. On our speedboats there is a maximum of 12 passengers including the guides. We have contacted the reviewer to remove the review and also reported this to TripAdvisor.

    I had a wonderful experience with Neptune Scuba Diving! Joe is friendly and very helpful. She went extra miles in suggesting to us the place to eat and play, helping us arrange transportation, which I truly appreciate it! Our dive guide( Muly) is experienced in his area, where I felt safe and confident during diving. Overall, it's a 5/5 service, and I will definitely come back again!

    My son (10 years) and I did the 3 stop Snorkelling trip here for my birthday, and it did not disappoint!

    In fact it far exceeded any expectations we had, which I shouldn't have been surprised about based on all the positive reviews.

    Communication with Julien was so prompt and informative, which made booking the trip so easy and then Joe was so friendly and engaging. All the staff at the dive centre were so friendly, and my son loved the chance to play and dive in the dive centre pool before and after the boat trip.

    We saw Mantas, turtles, dolphins (lucky us!) and so many wonderful colourful fish and corals.
    The entire tour experience was so professional and well run.
    Amazing lunch on board the boat (green fried rice - YUM!!!).

    Couldn't recommend this company and tour more highly. We are already planning our next trip back so we can complete our Open Water dive certifications with Neptune. By far the mort informative, friendly and engaging dive / snorkelling centre we have come across in Indo.

    Oh, and super cute cats! (Hi Luna & Coco - from Riley).

    The only diving centre to use 10/10

    I did my Padi Openwater with Neptune 5 years ago and went back to Bali for my honeymoon.

    Only one dive centre to use in Bali and that's Neptune, they are absolutely amazing.

    Julian the owners is always on hand to answer any questions we had over WhatsApp and responds within minutes. Arrival at the dive centre greeted by all they're lovely staff, followed by coffee and Julians homemade biscuits when we do our briefing.

    We went to Nusa to do 3 dives at Manta Point, Crystal Bay followed by a drift dive.

    Neptune had everything covered for the whole day,

    Cold drinks and Nissbles throughout the day
    Chicken Fried Rice for Lunch
    Watermelon Chunks
    Homemade biscuits
    And the nicest touch after our final dive was an ice cold Towel to wipe the sea salt from your face.

    They have thought of everything.

    Do not use any other dive centre than, promise you won't be disappointed.
