Amed Zen Divers is the first locally owned dive center in the area, which means that the instructors at Amed Zen Divers are pioneers in the industry and are highly experienced. Under the guidance of your expert dive instructor, you will undergo 3 days of coursework which includes a combination of theory, confined water lessons and 5 practical open water dives. The waters of Amed and Tulamben have little to no currents which makes for a beginner friendly environment. This is a great opportunity for those who are looking to explore the oceans freely, without having to be under the constant supervision of a dive guide. The PADI Open Water Course allows you to do just that - upon completion of the course, you will receive an internationally recognised dive certification that will allow you to dive in other parts of the world to a maximum depth of 18 meters.

After hunting around most of Amed for the 'best' place to do my openwater I decided on Amed Zen Divers. Wayan and his colleagues were all great fun, really good English and lots of local knowledge to share. I would highly recommend diving here!

We had a great dive with I Wayan Punia Atmaja. He was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. As an inexperienced diver, I felt safe and well cared for. Great to see the Liberty shipwreck and Tulamba drop off. Wayan sent us photos afterwards via WhatsApp. Zen divers was flexible and accommodating of our time restrictions. They picked up and dropped off at our hotel. I would dive with them again! Thank you

After some years without diving I was thinking that will never come back, as scare a lot every time. But with Wayan from Amed Zen Divers all is another. I again trust in myself and for that thanks to Wayan only- he is the best instructor I ever had!

Very good diving experience with a very professional, dedicated team. As beginners, we were shown a great deal of kind attention and felt safe all the time. We recommend it !

I made my open water course with Wayan and it was just amazing. I felt so save the first times under water, even tough it's really scary to put away the mask for the first time or to put away the regulator. He is a really calm person and explains the theory so that everybody understands it. I'd definitely recommend him and his crew. They are so helpful and you need nothing during your time there. You get fruits, water, tea, coffee, snacks and beautiful lunch. If I'd come to Amed the next time I definitely will go for a dive with him again.
