Diving with Scuba Junkie

Diving the Scuba Junkie way

Diving with Scuba Junkie means that certain things are a given. Our professional team have your safety as their top concern. Groups are no bigger than 4 divers per guide, and your guide will be a PADI Divemaster or Instructor. Groups are also organised according to certification and experience level, ensuring you get the most out of every dive.

Having as little impact on the marine environment comes a close second in terms of our priorities... All of the dive professionals at Scuba Junkie will also brief you on how to get the most out of each dive site by following correct protocols and respecting the marine environment. When you adhere to these protocols, you have longer and more memorable encounters underwater.

Last but definitely not least - We'll ensure you have great FUN on all your dives and our friendly crew will always be waiting for you at the end of the day to log your dives

The diving day

After a tasty breakfast at the resort we head out for diving between 8 and 9am, and we go out for two dives in the morning. At very low tide we may have to leave a little earlier or later. A short ride from the resort, we board the dive boat at Toyapakeh harbour - very close to Nusa Penida's most stunning coral dive site! Boat rides are anything from two to forty minutes, the longer rides to the South allow you to enjoy Nusa Penida's amazing scenery on the way.

Arriving at the first dive site of the day our professional team will give you an informative dive briefing, telling you everything you need to know about the site, marine life protocols, the currents and how to enjoy the dive site safely.

In our first surface interval we'll drive to the second dive site and moor up. After the second dive we return to the resort for lunch. Afternoon dives depart at 2:30pm and you'll be back at the resort for 4/4:30pm.

Equipment

All of our new equipment has been selected with our area in mind - open heel fins with dive boots, as well as 3mm shorty plus 5mm long neoprene wetsuits to adjust to Nusa Penida's temperature range. We provide SMB's to all divers who don't have their own and we have Suunto dive computers for rent.

Our tanks are 12L aluminium, if you have a DIN regulator or will be diving sidemount just let us know during your booking.

Dive boats

We use fibreglass speedboats for diving to get you to the dive sites quickly and safely.

Our boats have lifejackets, marine radios, GPS, emergency oxygen and first aid kits on board.

We bring drinking water, tea, coffee and snacks on board.
