Diving at Amed

Amed is a very good diving spot for Macro and Muck Diving fans. You will find there many critters and small weird stuff to discover

It is not only divers who can experience the amazing underwater life here – walk just a few meters off the shore with your snorkel and flippers and you’ll feel like you have walked into the film set of Finding Nemo – there are beautiful, bright, colourful fish and all sorts of rich marine life to discover. And what’s surprising is that the vibrant coral is so close to the shoreline (you can easily spend a whole day here).

Most of the dive sites there are accessible by boat; some are also accessible from the shore. Amed offers walls with a variety of sponges, sea fans and marine life; from macro to larger marine life such as sharks and turtles. The Amed sites are generally easy dives and great for any level of diver.

Amed Wall

The Amed Wall or drop-off can be reached with a short boat ride by traditional boat. This sloping drop-off consists of sand and coral reef. The variety of marine life is tremendous and you often spot larger schools of fish here, such as jack fish, trevallies and fusilier, and great macro life such as the pygmy seahorse, frogfish and pipefish. Occasionally you can spot turtles and sharks here.
