The reviews of this tour don't do it justice. Yes the afternoon tour of the island is just photo stops. If you want to fully experience nusa penida you need a few days not a one day tour. Id also recommend a bike to navigate the bumpy roads and traffic more easily. The bumps in the road werent too bad. Lunch was very nice. The portions are small by western standards but adequate and tasty.
The main event was definately snorkling. I would recommend only snorkling some of these sights if you are a strong and confident swimmer. Wall bay and gamat bay have strong current and you will drift to be picked up by the boat further along. I wouldnt recommend putting children or inexperienced swimmers in this position. However, I loved it. The briefing from the boat team could be better, especially when it comes to telling people about the drift and pick up dives. They definately need better quality snorkles. I would recommend taking this trip but with the right expectations.
PLEASE people wear biodegradable titanium oxcite sun screen and stop poisoning the coral. They dont require or brief on this in Bali like other reef systems do but its important to preserve these places.
