Bali boat trips could be the most diverse you could come across during your Indonesian holiday. Bali is so extensive, all it takes is one visit before you start getting ingrained into the daily way of life of the people there. Many tourists will claim that this is one of the major islands that has put the country on the map. However, for more reasons than one, you might not want to miss a myriad of pristine locations that are accessible during a Bali snorkeling tour.
Being a part of the Coral Triangle, Bali enjoys some of the most vibrant waters in Indonesia. Therefore, taking one of the Bali boat trips guarantees immersion into extended aquatic beauty and encounters with diverse marine species. Combined with clear water visibility, it is little wonder why snorkelers and divers get their gear ready no matter which of the Bali boat tours they decide to take.
Because Bali is so enormous, it promises more beaches than most developed islands in Indonesia. Therefore, Bali snorkeling tours allow you to discover a plethora of new beaches during your holiday too. Cruising along the shore, you will witness vibrant coral reefs on every corner, awash with exotic species of marine life. Bali boat trips take you to many secret lagoons with clean and calm waters featuring shallow areas for better exploration. We love the most snorkeling around Amed, Lipah, Jepun, Blue lagoon, Jemeluk, and Menjangan island.
If you are in the vicinity, nothing is stopping you from taking one of the Bali boat tours available to you to see what this bubbling island offers behind all that glam. Here is our selection of best sites when choosing among Bali snorkeling tours.
Amed is a location you want to be included in your Bali snorkeling tour. Even though there is a selection of other great beaches, there is almost none that comes with the exotic black appeal of volcanic nature, which the sand around this beach enjoys. Besides the volcano-beautified nature of the beach, it is also known among snorkeling enthusiasts to be one of the best areas to get your snorkel gear on.
Just off the coast of Amed beach is the famous Japanese shipwreck. While this ship might have lost every hope of being restored, it has found a new purpose in being a perfect breeding ground for many sea animals. Likewise, the waters around it are clear and clean enough to go exploring. It is, thus, little wonder why it provides a choice location for people taking a Bali snorkeling tour.
Your Bali boat trip is not complete if you have not gone underwater at Jemeluk. Jemeluk has even been rated to be an underwater paradise by many snorkelers, all thanks to the healthy fish life around its ocean temple known as the “Underwater Post Office.” Coupled with a mystifying view of the majestic Mount Agung in the background, Jemeluk is an absolutely remarkable dive site to visit.
Encircled by rocky, green hills, and aquatic life a couple of meters from the shore, Blue lagoon welcomes with the vast stretch of staghorn corals, made more enchanting with the companion of a massive variety of exotic fish, including cowfish, angelfish, and the elegant blue ribbon eel.
Somewhat secluded, especially if you stay on Bali’s most popular beaches, Menjangan is located 5 miles to the north-west of Bali. Apart from its famous Javan rusa deer herds roaming around freely among beautiful temples, Menjangan Island is blessed with calm waters and pristine coral gardens teeming with marine life. Promising snorkeling and diving with excellent visibility year-round, swimming with hawksbill turtles and playful octopuses – you should want to visit this location during your Bali boat trip.
