Comments My husband and I signed up for the Dive Safari with 7 dives and 4 night's accommodations. The first two dives were in Tulamben on the USS Liberty wreck and were absolutely beautiful. Lots of soft and hard corals, a vast variety of critters and two large turtles. For non-divers, the wreck can also be seen by snorkeling. The next dives were halfway back to Sanur at Padang Bai--just okay sites as the water was infused with plastic and trash from clashing currents. The best dives of all, however, were on Nusa Penida--just a 40 minute fast speedboat off Bali. Watching the 10-12 giant mantas play on and around their cleaning station was an incredible experience. We've been in the water with them before in the Similan Islands but the most we've seen there were three. This was--WOW! The next two dives were equally noteworthy for the vast array/colors of the corals and the currents! Fortunately, the last dive was a drift dive that had a 7+ knot ride. All4Diving had us accompanied by a great guide and we always felt safe.
