Natural beauty of Gamat Bay, Nusa Penida
Gamat Bay is actually a small bay that lies between the Toya Pakeh Port and Nusa Ceningan Island. The current here is very strong because this is the point at which the currents from the north and south converge. The current is unpredictable, and sometimes can even be swirling, and divers must be very careful here. It is advisable to always follow the guide who is leading you on the 1-Day Nusa Penida Tour.
You should also work out the best time to dive to make sure you are there at the right moment, when the current conditions are favourable. At a depth of 25 metres the current can be very strong, but you should be able to conquer it, and at that depth the scenery is amazing, including beautiful soft Gorgonian corals and small, colourful fish.
Features of Gamat Bay
Giant trevally can also be found here, and these fish will captivate you on your dive, part of the affordable Nusa Penida Tour Package. Of course, it’s always more fun if you dive with buddies or friends who share the same hobby! This bay is indeed special for divers; at a depth of 2–3 metres there are small caves filled with colourful soft corals.
In the same area, you will also find the Triaenodon obesus shark (whitetip reef shark). Then, at a depth of 35–50 metres, big fish inhabit the water, such as the blue pari, moray eel, yellow moray, gourami fish, black eel, barracuda and many more. In addition, you will find blue, black and white sea caterpillars that surround the corals and sea plants. These caterpillars can grow to a length of about 1 metre with a diameter of 2–3 cm.
