DIVING AROUND AMED
Jemeluk West and Jemeluk Drop Off
Our 'house reef' is easily accessed from the beach or by 'Jukung', one of the traditional fishing boats. Leaving from a sandy bay, the reef soon turns into a dramatic, sheer wall leading to about 40 metres which is covered in beautiful hard and soft corals. There is an abundance of marine life on this site, including many different kinds of nudibranch and leaf scorpion fish. You can often find sea horses in the shallow, sandy parts of the bay, watch trevallies hunt or simply enjoy the wall of corals as the current takes you back to your entry point.
We use the west side of the bay for our introductory dives and some of our open water diver course. The shallow sandy water at the start is ideal to become familiar with scuba equipment and the very gentle slope allows new divers to try out their new skills in a safe environment.
Amed Wall and The Pyramids
Located right cross the road from the dive centre, both sites are easily accessed from the beach. The Pyramids are artificially created reef structures, located in approximately 20+ metres of water, which have become home to a large variety of marine life.
This is the place to see pygmy seahorses hide in gorgonian fans, discover frogfish sitting on hard coral or simply enjoy a fast drift taking you along the reef. You may also spot hawksbill turtles here and the wall makes for a fantastic night dive.
Accessed from the beach or by 'Jukung', one of the local fishing boats, this is a fantastic fast drift dive along a rich coral reef.
Setting out from a large eel garden (sneaking up to these eels requires a bit of stealth and skill), you will pass big barrel sponges and giant gorgonian fans, before spending the rest of your dive exploring the beautiful coral garden here.
A small shipwreck in 6 metres of water marks the spot of this dive site. Like many dives in the area, this is a photographer’s paradise with fantastic macro opportunities.
Once you have explored the wreck, there is plenty of time to move on to the reef beyond it and explore the marine life here. The wall reaches approximately 35 metres and you may find strong currents on this site.
