Welcome to Big Fish Diving, a scuba diving and yoga resort based on the beautiful island of Lembongan. We offer daily diving for certified divers as well as the full range of PADI and SSI diving courses.

All our staff are fully trained to professional standards and have completed hundreds if not thousands of dives locally. The diving around the Nusa Penida Marina protected area couldn't be healthier, with flourishing vibrant corals and abundant fish life. We are also blessed with year round Manta Ray sightings and the magnificent Oceanic Sunfish from July - October. We also offer accommodation at the Secret Garden Bungalows, daily Yoga classes and are home to the Aquatic Alliance Manta Ray research team.

I had a great time diving with these guys! I went on 4 dives over 2 days. The divemasters and the boat staff are very professional and nice, but friendly and laid back at the same time.

I have been diving with Big Fish for quite a few times and i always love to come back. They got a great boat, good equipment and awesome guides/instructors. As the shop isn´t big, it also feels like family. The people take good care of you not just under water, but also on land. Andrea the shop manager was very... More

Big fish diving offered us such a great experience. From replying to emails instantly to taking us to the best dive sites we have ever been to they were really great. They make sure conditions are appropriate for each individual diver, provided a lovely unexpected morning snack on the boat and were brilliant throughout the dive. Highly recommend!

I spent two months in Bali -July and August- taking my IDC in Sanur, then travelling around the island with my daughter. We finished up in Nusa Lembongan, and with a referral from my CD, we checked in to Big Fish. From Tito to Wakari (hope these spellings are correct) we were made to feel at home. Our room was...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 weeks as we both enjoy diving, and he enjoys surfing as well. We stayed in the new deluxe accommodation, which was lovely, especially having the air conditioning. Only downside was the room was very close to a road, so there was quite a lot of noise 1st thing in the morning. Location... More

I did 4 dives over two days with BFD on the recommendation of a friend. Knowing that dive companies can book out, I pre-booked my dives before leaving Australia. A good idea as each day was fully booked (I think there was a max of 12 divers in groups of 3 or 4). The gear is generally good, though my... More

We stayed for two nights in a single standard double bungalow. The room was okay, but the outdoor bathroom (which was quite nice) definitely hadn't been cleaned. There was long hair everywhere. The room didn't have mosquito nets and no aircon ao you could choose between getting eaten up or having really bad air at night (it was very hot).... More

Hello and thank you for your review. Glad to hear you had some safe and enjoyable dives with us! Re the Standard Secret Garden Bungalows so sorry to hear the cleaning in the bathroom was not up to our usual standards and we will make sure the girls are more thorough in future.
