Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Amed Wall

Location: Outside Jumeluk Bay, Bali, Indonesia

Description: Reef

Depth: 10 - 35 metres (30 - 115 feet)

Visibility: 15 - 30 metres (50 - 100 feet)

Rating: ****

This dive site is located on the right side of the bay which takes approximately 5 minutes by Jukung. The depth ranges from 10 - 35 metres and although the wall itself is a relative small part of the dive, here you can usually find white tip reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, school of batfish, and some big trevally. Once you pass the wall you will find a deep slope which is rich in corals. If you turn right towards shallower water, you will see big bommies on the sand, covered with gorgonians.



Be careful, if you want to see one of the most fantastic creature of the sea you have to dive 25-30m (80-100 feet) deep. My wife and I did it in the summer of 2008 in Tulamben. The pygmy seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti) has a costume so similar to its host gorgonian that it can be recognized only with great difficulty. Thanks for our luck and our good diver guide we saw eight - three different kinds - pygmy seahorses. Good luck for looking for them!
