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.

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!

We have stayed in lembongan for a week mainly to take some diving courses.

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. They were not at all wrong :) We stayed in a bamboo deluxe villa, which was very comfortable: breathing bamboo construction with ac (open on top of the walls, but we didn't have mosquitoes inside..). The bathroom is in the backyard (some mosquitoes, but not during... More

We had a dive package with BFD and accommodation in their Secret Garden Bungalows and it was great choice. Everything was near and easy. Dive staff is super friendly and very professional. Our divemasters were brilliant in spotting the small stuff and also showed us loads of mantas. Everything is neatly organized and very safe. I would love to come... More

I had a great time diving with these guys! I went on 4 dives over 2 days. The divemasters and the boat staff are very professional and nice, but friendly and laid back at the same time. They know these reefs and dive spots really well. The lunch/snack was yummy and they provide tea and coffee. I will definitely be... More

I have been diving with Big Fish for quite a few times and i always love to come back. They got a great boat, good equipment and awesome guides/instructors. As the shop isn´t big, it also feels like family. The people take good care of you not just under water, but also on land. Andrea the shop manager was very... More

Big fish diving offered us such a great experience. From replying to emails instantly to taking us to the best dive sites we have ever been to they were really great. They make sure conditions are appropriate for each individual diver, provided a lovely unexpected morning snack on the boat and were brilliant throughout the dive. Highly recommend!
