Formerly known for salt farming, Amed Beach in Bali, Indonesia is now famous for its access to incredible scuba diving. To simply use the term “Amed Beach” is a bit of a misnomer, because it actually refers to the region spanning the coastline from Amed Village on the north shore to Aas Village on the southeast end. For savvy divers, this means that there’s more to explore without having to venture far between dive sites. With everything from shallow reefs to shipwrecks and a variety of aquatic animals, it’s no surprise that diving enthusiasts flock to the region, but what makes Amed particularly special is that all of these features are accessible to beginning divers. So you can go on an amazing underwater adventure your first time out.
An Awesome Activity Made Easy
Scuba diving is one of those activities that seems so cool it borders on being intimidating:
- How much do you have to invest in equipment?
- How do you find the right instructor?
- How do you get the attention you need in class?
- How do you know if you want to work toward your certification if you aren’t even sure you want to dive frequently?
This introductory scuba diving class in Amed Beach answers all of these questions. First, your class will consist of a friendly instructor that will be working with you and one other student. That’s right! Only two students per every one instructor (2 to 1)! Because this is a beginner’s course, your diving instructor is well aware that you’re a novice, so they are more than happy to take the time to explain everything and answer all of your questions. More importantly, this level of personalization ensures that every student has the safest experience possible, because there is no rush to get a large class ready.
Lessons on Land and in The Sea
Your adventure begins on land where you’ll learn all about the finer points of scuba diving — the rules for safely exploring depths and resurfacing, and the rationale behind them; what equipment is used, and how to check that it is in good condition; how to safely explore without disrupting underwater ecosystems, etc. All of the equipment you’ll need to go scuba diving is provided, so swimwear and a towel are all you need to bring with you.
When you’re ready to head out to sea, you’ll actually have the chance to explore two (2) dive sites. Your choices include:
- Melasti (muck dive)
- Ghost Bay (muck dive)
- Pyramids and Pyramids Wall
- Jemeluk Bay and Jemeluk Wall
- House Reef
- Bunutan Wall
- Lipah Bay
- Japanese Ship Wreck
You’ll notice that the term ‘muck dive’ is on the agenda, which means that you’re in for a special treat! Muck diving is when you slowly and patiently explore the sand and rocks that cover the shallows before venturing out to the ‘slope.’ In the ‘muck’ of Bali, you can find cocatoo waspfish, harelquin shrimp, juvenile frogfish, nudibranches, pipefish, sea moths, wunderpus, and more. When you’re ready to head a little further out, you can see colorful coral reefs, shipwrecks, and even more sea creatures. Between your two dive sites, you’ll take a break to enjoy a local meal, so you’ll have plenty of energy to explore. If you get thirsty throughout the day, you’ll have access to all of the water, tea, and coffee you need.
Scuba Diving Made Safe and Sound
Important things to note when choosing this activity: You will be required to fill out a medical statement where you must provide "no" to every question asked. A "yes" will require proof of a doctor's approval before you will be allowed to participate in the lesson, so it's best to consult your physician back home prior to your trip. Also, introductory divers 8-9 years of age (‘Bubble Makers’) are allowed to dive at a maximum depth of 16 feet (5 m), while divers ages 10 and up are allowed a maximum depth of 39 feet (12 m).
