Abyss Dive Center Bali will offer you a wide range of dive sites in Amed and Tulamben to visit, mainly located on Bali’s Northeastern coast. Yearly diving conditions are almost always perfect as Amed’s coast is protected from wind and swell. Water temperature varies from 26° to 31°C, underwater visibility can be up to 40m and most dive sites in Amed and Tulamben are accessible from the shore.
However, some of our dive sites require a short boat trip to be reached. And the story behind that is actually worth knowing. In Amed and Tulamben, no dive center owns its own dive boat. The reason? The fishermen of this area have made a deal with the divers, they have to rent the services of the fishermen to get to the dive sites, and in exchange, the fishermen don’t fish there. It’s actually a very nice balance between the livelihood of both parties and it helps preserve both the Balinese culture and the Balinese underwater wildlife. Abyss Dive Center Bali obviously respects greatly the local community and that allows you to enjoy the pleasure of getting on a jukung, one of the traditional fishing boats of Bali with an experienced boat driver when going diving.
At Abyss Dive Center Bali, we offer different types of dive sites in Amed and Tuamben to suit your desires and diving capacities. There are 4 main types of dive sites accessible around Amed and Tulamben. You feel like combining some of them to get the full Bali diving experience? Check out our Dive Packages!
