Snorkeling at Mangrove Lembongan is like being in a giant scale aquarium : small bright color fish here, big brown color fish there and so much corals of all types ! There is usually a current in the deeper water so you’ll stay in the shallow part and your captain always keeps an eye on you to ensure your safety.
