LOCATION - Amed, Bali

Our all inclusive Freediving Instructor Course takes place at a purpose built freediving centre that includes:

  • Classroom

  • Restaurant 
  • Ammenities 

Set on a stunning stretch of black sand beach, Jemeluk Bay is located at the heart of Amed, a segment of the Island's east coast reputed for its authenticity and quietness. As a result of its calm, clear waters and flourishing coral reefs it is also considered to be one of the best freediving locations on the island with up to 50m depth available just a short swim from the shore!

The view over Jemeluk's tiny bay with impressive Mount Agung in the background is an iconic image of Bali.
