Great Underwater Experience!

We stumbled across Amed Dive Center when researching the diving options in Amed. We had two great instructors to guide us which was perfect because when my partner's air was starting to run low I was able to stay under longer until it was time for me to surface as well. Dive the shipwreck! Amed/Tulamben have a beautiful, healthy reef. We definitely recommend diving in this area and Amed Dive Center provided us with an unforgettable experience.

Divine diving in Amed

Our friendly and helpful dive guide made our dives an informative and enjoyable experience while visiting The Pyramids and the US Liberty wreck at Tulamben.

Very nice and relaxed diving.

The diving at Amed Dive Center was very nice. We stayed in the attached Hotel next in a bungalow nxt to the beach. The diving was aranged on a day by day basis in the way "where do you like to go? Tomorrow we have 2 other guests They already have been on site A, so I recommend to to to Site Day because of visibility ..." The Guides know the Places and show all the tiny things you never would find alone. I hope that I am able to come back but there are so many more things to see on this planet.

A very nice week with friendly staff and at a nice location ( 2 of the pictures show the hotel - the rest of the pictures was made during the dives.

Decompression Illness with your team

My computer stopped working on the first dive so I had to trust the center's diver for the ascent. 2 days later I realized that the rash that I was getting 10-20 min after the dive was not an allergy but skin bends; joint pain after and SOB; hospital trip and ruined trip planned just to dive. When returned to NY the computer indicated 2 diving violations. German lady at the resort told me same thing happened to her.
Traveled 10.000 miles to dive...

Response from Amed Dive Center Feb 13, 2016

Dear Chistina,

we are very sorry that you feel not being treated properly with our dive professionals.
We investigated the situation and can comment as follows:

According to the information you provided to us you are a certified open water diver with 75 recorded dives and thus have quite some diving experience. When you registered with us you did not mention any health problems or risks we should take into consideration when diving with you. You are a medical doctor.

We provided you with a dive guide for yourself (no other guest) to serve you best for making under water photos. You dive guide was our certified dive master Komang who has 15 years experience in the dive industry.

In the evening of you first diving day (after the first 2 dives) you felt unwell but according to your own statement this was due to sea sickness and was no problem. Before heading out (on our boat) on day two you also stated that you used some medicine for the sea sickness and there was no problem. On that 2nd day your first dive was at Tulamben shipwreck and after a suitable break you did your second dive of that day at drop off. Both dives went down to about 20 meters with a safe and slow ascent. During all your dives safety stops were done at 5 meters for at least 3 minutes.
You did not mention or show any signs of decompression sickness after your dives! However, you were very quiet and did not talk to the other people on the boat or to our dive crew.
After retuning to the Hotel you went to your room and left your camera at the dive center. When asked you stated that you are OK and would take the camera later. You did not talk to our dive crew and did not mention any problems.

On the next morning you complained and stated that Komang had tried to kill you?! When asked to investigate and discuss the problem with Komang and our operation manager Lena you complained about Komang's guiding and stated that he put you in danger. When invited to check the record on his dive computer (since yours was out of order) you refused. We must ask WHY? When asked to be brought to the hospital you also refused with the argument that you know better since you are a medical doctor. What else could we do?
You checked out and left!

As you stated in your email and as observed by our dive crew your dive computer was out of order when diving with us. It is therefore impossible that your dive computer recorded these dives and/or any dive violations during these dives!

We do not understand what went wrong and apologize if you feel not being treated properly. However, we cannot accept your allegation that we put your life in danger. Our dive crew can proof that they followed safety regulations and dived safe with you. They also did their very best to find out what the problem was but you did not give them a chance.

Once again we are very sorry if you were not happy with our services and could not enjoy your stay with us.

Thank you and best regards

Hartmuth

Good Value For Money

Amed Dive Center was cheap yet professional. I was lucky enough to have a couple of fun dives with only me and the lovely instructor. Got to swim with a good bunch of rays & a turtle. Lovely day with Amed!

Nice dives

I had booked the hotel Uyahas Amed and 4 days dive package. Was a bit sick upon arrival but after 1 night and 1 day was ready to start with diving. I was the first 2 days alone with the dive guide. No problem except that the engine of the dive centre boat made troubles. For the last 2 days I had a quiet Swiss buddy. The DG had on the last days an unusual behavior, almost unfriendly und underwater passing too fast the nicest spots..... but non worries I have seen wonderful corals,giant trigger fish, parrotfish, groupers and nudibranches.
Amazing Bali underwater world.
The hotel is fine and people are friendly and very helpful. Better bungalows near the sea ( less traffic noise). I can also recommend nice massage to relax after diving....

This is the second time I dove with Amed Dive Centre and I will definitely go back. If you choose to dive with them, just relax and enjoy. Tell the staff what you want and they will take care of you. The food however, is so-so.

a very rude divemaster

When i did my open water license in the amed dive center i was very disapointed. My diving instructor was very rude and impatiently with me when i did my lessons wrong, she sometimes even didnt want to tell me her instructions twice and also didnt tell me her name in the first two days. Even if the license was cheap i wouldnt reccomend this dive center to anybody because it was no fun at all and i felt the whole time under pressure. On the otherhand side my equipment was alright and i got one fundive for free.
