“Worth the pricy price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Hotel pick up and return was on time and smooth. The ride to Lembongan Island was fun. I really enjoyed the walk. The equipment felt new and good. Did not see many kinds of fish but it was good enough. The buffet lunch was just ok. The highlight of the day was the water jetpack. Its a new sport and was very amazing. And you can save 10% by booking online directly with marine walk (send them an email).

“Great fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

We did the marine walk tour on Christmas Eve and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite dismal weather. The staff were very professional and the whole day well organised. We loved the marine walk, which was short but brilliant, and enjoyed spending the rest of the time on the pontoon snorkelling. We chose kayaking after lunch due to the wet weather, which we enjoyed and sure would have been even better if the weather had improved. Overall we thought the trip was worth the money and would recommend to anyone with a day to spare in sanur.

“Great Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

The whole package cost about 95 USD which includes 2 way pick up from hotel, 2 way cruise to Marine walk location at Nusa Lembongan, all the activities there and lunch! Though the high price may be daunting at first but I would say its all very worth it for the great experience.

Went with a big group with mix of different nationalities and the guides/instructors were very well verse in different languages which impresses me.

There's a little hiccup on the way as the speed boat engine failed and we had to go back halfway to the beach and wait for another boat to come from Nusa Lembongan to pick us up. It was almost an half hour wait and the staff is kind enough to bring us some food and snacks while we were waiting. And they did not shortchange us of the time to do the activities there too despite the delay!

Everyone take turns to go down for the marine walk and while waiting, we are allowed to snorkel or swim around the area. I'm one of the last few who went down and were privileged to be given a slightly longer time to walk haha! You will be given a bottle of fish food and lots of fishes will automatically swim to you for the food! It was fun and great first time experience for me! They will also take some photos of you which you are allowed to pick 2 free ones and any additional will be charged at 50,000idr which is very reasonable.

After the walk, you will get to enjoy a complimentary ride on the banana boat as well..followed by lunch and a free drink, before you get to choose between kayaking in the waters or a ride on the bicycle around the village. I choose to cycle as I prefer to take a look at how the locals there are living. And it was indeed an awesome ride down the village, seaside and the mangrove forests on the island. Although my only concern is that the guide was riding abit too fast and does not seem to care about the safety and if everyone is closely following behind him.

The shower room only has one cubicle (for male) though so theres a need to queue and thus would suggest to bathe when you are back in the hotel instead. The whole trip lasted from 9am to around 3pm in the afternoon.

Overall a fun and great experience I had and would definitely recommend to make this one of the must try in Bali!

One tip: Bring along either a waterproof camera or a waterproof bag to put your phone in to capture the moments underwater! haha..

“Awesome experience for young kid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013

At first, I was not sure if my 10-year old son was willing to give it a go to go down underwater. But the staff was all very professional. They brought him around for snorkeling, etc to make sure he was comfortable with the water, then patiently made sure he dared to try on the helmet and climbed down the ladder.....kudos to the staff.

The walk itself was quite short but it was quite memorable. Plenty of fish around the area to make sure you will end up with a nice photo to bring home

“Great fun - memorable experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

My husband and I signed up for the full day package which included the 15 minute marine walk, snorkelling, lunch, kayaking/biking, one underwater photo per person, and pickup/drop off from hotel.

The marine walk is nothing like I've ever experienced. They put a big heavy space helmet on your head and you walk down and around the ocean bed (about 5-10m). It was pretty scary walking down because we weren't used to the helmet weight and we didn't know to expect but we got over it after a few minutes. We were given a bottle of fish food so we can attract/feed the fish while the photographer takes pictures of us. That was also scary because all the fish come around you pecking at your bottle of fish food, and unfortunately for my husband, the fish were pecking at him too. Apparantly, he's tasty to the fish. They were just small coral fish though, there were no sharks or piranhas so it wasn't painful for him.

We were in a big group so we got a lot of time to snorkel as everyone waits their turn to do the marine walk. After the marine walking and snorkelling, you have the option to pay extra to go on the banana boat, we opted out of that.

After all the water activities, we were taken to an island to have lunch, and after lunch, you get the option to bike around the village or go kayaking. Looking at the beautiful clear blue/green water, we decided to go kayaking. After kayaking, we chilled at the island for about 30 minutes longer and then sadly, we had to leave.

While I found the package a bit on the expensive side, I felt it was definitely the highlight of my trip to Bali.
