Ross and I have both done a lot of diving, including places like the Maldives and the Barrier reef. We were really impressed with Menjangan and rate it among our favourite free dives (free dive meaning no air tanks).
The photos below are all taken without scuba tanks, we had five kids with us three of them had never tried snorkeling before and all did it with ease.
In a lot of the photos there are white messy marks, they are all fish!!
We picked the perfect day, the previous couple of days there had been a lot of swell so we couldn't believe our luck when we woke up to a perfect sea.
Motoring out to Menjangan was stunning, with Bali behind us and Java to the the left.
There was magic in the air......
I'm sure that the Gods were smiling down upon us.
Our first dive
The Bali sea was like a mill pond
This what it's all about
Looking down towards the drop off
Looking up from the drop off
All along the drop off the coral was alive and beautiful.
All the messy dots are fish!
Seriously love my camera!!
Riley diving the drop off
In the shallows were clams and bright little spots of coral.
Our second dive
Around the other side of the island away from the drop off we snorkeled from the boat as there is no beach here.
Someone jumping off the boat.
What is this coral? looked like underwater mushrooms.
Around the island
These little caves were full of bats!
There was a ceremony in progress at this temple, this is Bali.. everyone stopped and waved at us as we motored on past.
For tired little kids and lazy adults
Cruising back wet happy and exhausted
