Drift Diving in Lembongan

By | PADI, Underwater Life | No Comments

Drift Diving

Lembongan is known for its drift diving. There are some ‘horror’ stories on the internet, from people that had an unfortunate dive in current. With the correct information, a knowledgeable dive centre and correct procedures, drift diving can be a lot of fun!

Some of the best coral reefs around the islands of Lembongan, Penida and Ceningan is on the north coast or in the channel between Ceningan and Penida. It is common off these parts of the islands, to find current. This current can range from close to no current at all, to a brisk push along the dive site.

The current is one of the main reasons that the coral reef is so healthy. This current brings nutrient rich waters to the area, which allows the coral reef to feed. Having a healthy coral reef provides homes for reef fish and juvenile fish. Having a coral reef that is full of fish, provides food for bigger predator fish. And all this together, creates our underwater ecosystem.
