Cabbage coral at the Canyon, Bali

Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: The Canyon

Location: Tapekong, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 40 metres max (130 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 25 metres (50 - 80 feet)

Rating: *****

This little island is only 1km from Mimpang that offers some of the most spectacular diving in Bali. The Canyon is located off the very southwestern tip of Tapekong with a maximum depth of 40m. Commencing your dive on the steep slope on the islands western face, continue down to 25 metres and enter the canyon. Explore the canyon you'll be able to see an area with huge schools of sweetlips, batfish, snapper, bumphead parrotfish, unicornfish and big-eyed trevally, all of which can nearly fill the canyon. Sharks are relatively common in this area, usually white tip reef sharks. It is very rare not to have a current here.
