Amed Bay

This bay is situated at the eastern tip of Bali, to dive in this bay is more convenient from a small outrigger boat provided by local fishermen, the reef ridges spurs out into the bay and the current from Lombok strait can pick up making it difficult swimming back to the bay. In the bay lies a small Japanese freighter ship, 12 meters long sits at 6 to 12 meters water.

The history behind this ship was unknown. Black corals, colourful soft corals and Gorgonians have grown well on this ship and attract variety of reef fishes to its shelter. Bommies at 10 meters on the reef slopes are covered with gorgeous bushy Gorgonians and soft corals, good numbers of reef fishes, then the reef runs away down the slope out of the bay over 30 meters deep. Schools of Jack and Blue Fin Trevally are often encountered in this site. In the bay at slope sandy bottom is good place to see unusual animals, like Shrimps, Ghost pipefish, Dragonet fish, Sand Diver fish, Gobies, Devil scorpion and others. Water temperature is roughly 29 degrees C. It can be lower if up currents affect the dive site. When strong wind blows from southeast the wave will swirl the sandy bottom and cause the visibility to blur, mostly the clarity is good.
