Explore the wreck by swimming around the outside where you will find a steering wheel and fully intact propeller. For more experienced divers you can penetrate the wreck to find a VW Jeep, various buddha statues, used scuba tanks, and other sunken treasures. More and more fish come to live at the Boga, and it has become a fantastic artificial reef. Schools of trevallies, batfish, and fusiliers gather around the wreck. In the sand, look for garden eels and stingrays. Moray eels, lionfish, ghost pipefish, nudibranch, leaf fish, scorpionfish, and pipefish all make the Boga their home
On the northern and eastern sides of Nusa Penida, the reefs are covered with stunning hard corals, where schooling fish, as well as a large number of small and big fish species, can be seen. A perfect site for a drift dive. Nusa Penida trips are full-day excursions. We travel by car to Padangbai where we take our private speed boat another 45 minutes to reach Nusa Penida and its surrounding dive sites.
