Biggest chance to see mantas is at the Manta Bay at the coast line of Nusa Penida. You can take tours every morning from many different locations. We took a morning snorkeling tour from Nusa Lembongan with 4 different snorkeling locations. First at Manta Bay to see Manta rays, afterwards Crystal Bay and other spots at the coast line of Nusa Penida.
