DIVE SITES AROUND AMED, NORTH EAST BALI
SURYA RAINBOW HOUSE REEF Depth: 5-25m
Very good muck dive with black sand, occasional rocks
and mooring lines that offer some amazing macro life.
We are still exploring and have already found many seahorses,
frogfish, ghost pipefish, mantis shrimp, nudibranchs,
pipefish, a variety of shrimp and other crustaceans,
saddleback anemonefish, long horned cowfish and much more.
A lot of this life is very well camouflaged but our experienced guides
know how to find it – good news is none of it moves too
fast so it’s amazing for photography.
USAT LIBERTY Depth: 5-30m
The famous Liberty is a shipwreck for any diver level from
an Open water or a Discover scuba diver to an advanced diver
who has hundreds of dives logged. Snappers, Groupers, Barracuda,
and occasional visits from Black tip reef sharks are some of the
bigger things at the wreck, if you are interested in macro the
wreck has Ghost Pipefish, Nudibranchs, Leaf fish and tones of
other little critters. With great coral colour and normally good
visibility and light the Liberty makes for an excellent photography dive.
We normally dive the Liberty first thing in the morning before
the crowds arrive from Sanur and Kuta.
PYRAMIDS Depth: 5-20m
Dived from a Jukung (local outrigger boat), Pyramids gets
its name from the artificially created reefs that the local
dive community has built in that are in the shapes of pyramids.
The structures attract all sorts of life like Snappers, Puffers,
Ghost Pipefish, Nudibranchs and so on. Besides the artificial reef
the is also the natural reef where you can spot Stingrays, Garden Eels,
Harlequin Sweet lips, Ribbon Eels and much more.
This site is great for a drift and if the current is not to
strong then it makes for great photography as well.
AMED WALL Depth: 10-30+m
Also a boat dive Amed Wall can be a good drift when the current
picks up. Here there is a flat sloping reef that turns into a mini
drop off where you have the chance of seeing Black Tip Reef Sharks,
Big Groupers and the occasional Manta or Tuna.
CORAL GARDEN Depth: 5-20m
The Coral Garden at Tulamben is a site that is bursting with life,
yet another site that is great for photography. Scorpionfish,
Ribbon Eels, colonies of anemones with their resident clown fish
along with giant Bumphead Parrotfish and passing Blacktip Reef
Sharks are a few of the things that you can see here. An artificial
reef has also been created here which comprises of a mix of various
Balinese statues all of which attract a lot of life to the reef
and makes for a great photo opportunity with your buddy.
JAPANESE WRECK Depth: 5-20m
The Wreck lies in a calm bay and it sits in just 5m of water,
It along with its surroundings make for an excellent muck dive
with Pigmy Seahorses, Leaf Fish, Scorpion Fish and a handful
of other critters. Great site for macro photography.
DROP OFF Depth: 10-30+m
The Drop off can be quite an exciting dive with Black-tip
Reef Sharks, Groupers, Stingrays and other marine life.
It makes for a great wall dive as well a bit of a drift
depending on the currents. There is also a chance of
seeing Mantas but these are just visitors who pass by now and then.
BUNUTAN Depth: 5-30+m
10 minutes from our centre lies the reef corner of Bunutan.
Best dived as a drift we work out from a sandy slope to a corner
with excellent fish life, especially from 20m down. Shoals of snapper
and fusiliers hang out here while sharks and trevallies are often
seen patrolling at the corner. After watching the show we work up
the reef slope and finish in the protected shallows, where you’ll
find huge barrel sponges and coral bommies adorned with gorgonian
fans of many species and colours.
BATU NITI Depth: 10-30+m
A steep lava wall covered in corals leads down to a black sand
slope at this site between Tulamben and Amed. Black coral and
Barrel Sponges abound, with frogfish, nudibranchs, and other
critters hiding amongst the reef. Keep an eye out in the
blue though as large pelagics occasionally pass the point.
GILI SELANG Depth : 5-30+m
A short boat ride south of Amed lies the small island of
Gili Selang. Dives in this area can be tricky due to
current and are only diveable at the right tide,
as such they are suitable for experienced divers only.
However they are the best place in the area to see large
pelagics – big barracuda schools, reef sharks and tuna
are common, with occasional dolphins, mola-mola and
even hammerhead sharks if you are lucky,
along with luscious hard and soft coral gardens.
SERAYA Depth: 5-25m
Definitely one for the macro enthusiast or photographers
this black sand slope has scatter patches of reef and
sponge hiding superb macro life. Nudibranchs,
multiple species of ghost pipefish, pygmy cuttlefish,
frogfish, boxer crabs, seahorses… the list goes on and on.
Black sand diving at it’s best.
