Owner description: 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.

We did 4 dives with Big Fish and had a great time. Very professional and relaxed which is a hard combination to achieve. The day trip boat was comfortable. The divermasters and instructor we dove with were friendly. Oli, our guide for 2 dives was great company. And seeing a mola-mola was wonderful. :)

My partner and I spent about 10 days diving with Big Fish recently, staying at Secret Garden. We were both very impressed with the professionalism and attitude of the staff, the quality of the hire equipment (from what we saw - we had our own gear) and the dive sites themselves. We only glimpsed a manta and mola from a distance, but who cares when there's so much else to see!

We stayed At secret garden and dived with Big Fish for 2 weeks.

The diving was great, we got to see the Mola's and Manta's so pretty happy with that result. Even without the those two highlights, the diving was pretty nice.

As we were recommended by a friend, we were told some of the better dive sites, and on request we were taken to them which was lovely :) Thanks!!

Secret garden is such a nice play to stay!! We were actually so impressed with the state of it for the price we paid. Pretty good bargain!

Tim was so lovely and gave us heaps of tips for further diving around Bali. He's a top guy and you can tell he cares about his employers..Who are all very nice as well.

He even let us pay when we had left Lembongan because we got a little carried away with our budget and weren't able to get any more cash..

If we're ever back in Bali we will be coming straight to you guys. Awesome!

Thanks so much for everything.

Soph and Steve

Loved diving with Big Fish, it's a nice small shop and all the staff are super friendly and accommodating. Nothing is guaranteed underwater, but we were super lucky to see 3 Molas, Marbled Rays, Mantas and even a Wobbegong shark, plus tonnes of reef fish and beautiful corals across all the dive sites. Well worth booking ahead to dive with these guys!

The dive shop is based at the lovely Secret Garden Bungalows, which has a nice pool to relax in as well as the Yoga Shack where in addition to yoga sessions they also host super interesting talks by the Aquatic Alliance team about conservation, marine life and mantas and more. It's great to see a dive shop getting involved in initiatives like this and really shows the passion Tim and his team have for conserving the aquatic environment and encouraging customers to learn about more than just how to dive!

I booked in with Big Fish a month or two in advance as I knew I wanted to dive in Lembongan and TripAdvisor had good things to say about them. I wasn't disappointed - the team were extremely friendly and knew their stuff, the boats were well set up and the skipper, Donny, was a top man, I did a series of fun dives and was rewarded on the last day with THREE mola molas. The mola mola dance was clearly a success. We also were able to get out to Manta Bay for one day and saw a Manta. The accommodation here is also great and they put on a couple of talks a week which are well worth going to - who knew that Nemo was wrong?!
