Gili Tepekong is located not far from Amuk Bay and is a single island exposed to current coming from the North, making it a site exclusively for certified and experienced divers.  

If the current and conditions permit, you pass through a small cave and come out the other side onto a magnificent vertical wall. Once you turn around and arrive back to the coral reef, you’ll be amazed by its excellent health and beauty, and the sheer quantity of fish.  There is even the possibility to see some pelagics such as black and white tip reef sharks, barracuda, stingrays, and sometimes even the jaw-dropping Mola Mola (Sunfish), particularly from July to October.

Thanks to the current, the visibility is often very good. However, Tepekong is a dive site where conditions can change very quickly and it's preferable to wait for favorable conditions before jumping in and diving on this site. You can trust and have faith in the experienced dive guides and instructors of your dive center to keep you safe.

Freedive Nusa

Email: info@freedivenusa.com Telephone: +6282147417679

          What makes freediving with Freedive Nusa the best choice? - Professional team of instructors. -Unlimited depth. The maximum depth in the strait between Bali and Nusa Penida is 200m. You can dive from the shore after passing the underwater seaweed gardens. After that gardens the sea bottom is dropping deep on almost 90-degree wall. For training sessions we are going for diving from the boat. - Water temperature is 27-29 degrees all year long. - Clean water and perfect visibility. As soon as this island is quite far from Bali, the water here is much clearer than in around Bali, especially it could be different in the raining season. - Rich underwater world. It’s the best place in all Bali measured by the number of species you can see underwater. There is a high possibility to see Manta Rays and Mola-Mola fish. - Amazing sites are also making Nusa Penida a perfect place to visit: beautiful beaches, breathtaking cliffs, underground temple, waterfalls, etc. - Regular yoga sessions in our studio.
