Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia
Dive Site: Gamet Bay
Location: Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia
Depth: 6 - 25 metres (20 - 80 feet)
Visibility: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)
This bay located on the northwest of Nusa Penida, off Toyapakeh Strait, between Toyapakeh and Crystal Bay. Gamet bay is the only good site on Nusa Penida that is not a drift dive. The shallow depths here are exceptionally rich with colourful soft coral, hard corals, gorgonians, bommies and many reef fish. You may want to stay for your whole dive as the colour of Gamet's shallow reef simply glows. Following the slope into 10 to 20 metres of water, a series of large bommies provide some protection from the current and are probably the nicest part of the reef. Sharks are common, especially at a depth of 20 - 25 metres where there is a cave which almost always has white tip reef sharks hiding in it. At 18 metres, there are two caves where you will often find green turtles, occasionally seen in Gamet Bay itself.
