Welcome to Big Fish Diving, a scuba diving and yoga resort based on the beautiful island of Lembongan. We offer daily diving for certified divers as well as the full range of PADI and SSI diving courses.

All our staff are fully trained to professional standards and have completed hundreds if not thousands of dives locally. The diving around the Nusa Penida Marina protected area couldn't be healthier, with flourishing vibrant corals and abundant fish life. We are also blessed with year round Manta Ray sightings and the magnificent Oceanic Sunfish from July - October. We also offer accommodation at the Secret Garden Bungalows, daily Yoga classes and are home to the Aquatic Alliance Manta Ray research team.

Big fish was recommended to me by two very happy guests I bumped into by chance on this small island. They hadn't promised too much. I went on six dives during three consecutive days. Had an especially great time with Bobby, who did an outstanding job. Obviously well trained and experienced but super friendly and helpful. The instructors I met... More

We vooked an Open Water Course and an Advanced Open Water Course with Big Fish. We met our instructor Michelle who was super nice and a very good teacher. We started out in the pool to do some basic exercises and 2 days later we went for our first ocean dive. Michelle was always very relaxed and we all felt... More

A few of us who had never been diving before were recommended to try Big Fish Diving. We had an easy and informative first day in the pool and were made to feel very comfortable, relaxed and learned at our own pace. The second day out in the ocean was amazing fun and so beautiful. We saw Mantas, Turtle's and... More

What a place!! I arrived unsure about doing my PADI open water and within minutes of meeting Nora, I was put to ease. From the first moment, Nora was professional yet so friendly and warm. The energy from Nora and everyone involved with BigFish Diving is unreal. The dives are unreal. If it's your first time diving then this is... More

If you are thinking of diving or learning to dive, look no further than this company! I booked to do my open water PADI course. From the word go, instant replies to my emails, giving clear guidance on what the course entailed. Once starting the course I was allocated Carlos or as I like to call him Saint Carlos because...

Went with my girl! I'm a DM and she did a dsd! Had Nora as an instructor for the dsd and she's truly brilliant! My gf was a it nervous before the trip but Nora made her feel very confident in the water. Topped the day with 4 manta rays and a school of dolphins. Just amazing!

Big Fish was recommended to me so wanted to go there. Did two dives but I wasn't impressed. Had to travel over from accommodation at Cheningan which our hotel organised for us but Big Fish had no interest in helping us get back. The staff were pleasant but got the impression they were suffering from season fatigue and weren't very... More

We had recommendations of friends, who trusted the services of this dive operator before.
