Perfect for qualified technical divers who wish to discover the walls of Bunaken or the sloping reefs of north-east Bali – or simply want to gain more experience beyond their technical diving courses: we offer guided open circuit diving at our tech centre in Amed and our resort in Bunaken.
Bunaken’s walls feature dramatic drop-offs to depths of up to 600 m within 5 minutes of our resort. Amed and Tulamben are well known for recreational diving, but the deeper side of those reefs remains largely undiscovered, leaving plenty of options to explore.
To dive either location beyond recreational depths of 30m, you will be accompanied by one of our tech instructors or guides. They will also help with dive planning, equipment configuration and gas management in preparation of your dive. There are additional fees for this, see below.
In Bunaken, we currently offer open circuit guiding on air to 50 m. Gentle reminder – due to our remote location, please book any technical diving well in advance, so we can make sure all the gases and equipment needed are available for you.
In Amed, our tech instructor is also qualified as a hypoxic trimix diver and can accompany you to depths of 100m. Whilst equipment and gases are more easily available here, early booking still helps.
