lifeline diver safety system

Safety is always our first concern:

We of course have oxygen on each trip But also some binoculars for the boat crew
to search for dives, and most of all we are the 1st dive operator in Indonesia which uses
Nautilus Lifelines (A water prove radio) so the diver’s can communicate with the boat
crew as soon as the group surface.

 

Bali Dive & Snorkel Site - Amed

bali diving & snorkeling amedAmed is situated in north east Bali. Amed's villagers exist from salt panning. Arriving there you will notice the woodpiles which are used for this technique of salt extraction. The coral garden starts right off the beach breaking the surface with a stag horn coral field and huge schools of glass fish. This is Bali's best snorkeling area. The actual dive site can be reached by outrigger boat.

The dive starts in a shallow area of 3 to 8 m in a wonderful coral garden. You may encounter turtles and bump head parrot fish. A moderate current will guide you in approx. 20 min to the drop off's edge. One of Amed's drop offs drops straight down to 30 m. It is beautifully grown with soft coral and any possible species of reef fish can be found there. White- and blacktip reef sharks pop in occasionally to patrol their feeding ground. The highlight however is an area at 27 m of depth with a sandy field full of blue-spotted stingrays.

The other drop off is only 25 m deep, ideal for the subsequent shallower dive. The dive site features a pinnacle, which erects from a depth of 25 m forming a scenic swim through in 20 m. At both drop offs your 5m safety stop will be highly entertaining. Both dives are drift dives with a mild current, with outrigger boats following the divers. Both are very comfortable dives. The visibility may be limited during the rainy season (December to March), urging us to visit other dive sites with better conditions.
