JEMELUK BAY/ WALL
Jemeluk bay is a diving hotspot for both entry-level divers and experienced ones. It is very close from our PADI Dive Resort and we use it regularly for training & teaching purposes and fun diving as well.
The topography of Jemeluk bay allows you to encounter on both edges a vertical wall full of marine life and abundant coral and a protected bay with the absence of currents and very clear waters. On the west side, the wall connects with Pyramids while the drop-off on the east side will bring you direction to Bunutan village.
The bay itself features a sandy bottom plateau at around 3-5m where it is possible to already spot seahorses, devil & leaf scorpionfish, harlequin crabs, stonefish and many more interesting and rare aquatic life species. Then following the contour of the gentle sandy bottom slope you will discover for instance an artificial reef covered by concrete structures and Balinese statues, huge sea fans or even red fluorescent sea anemones at depth.
While you can dive Jemeluk shallow fulfilling Open Water certification depth limits you may also want to explore deeper on the wall sides. Usually the drop off begins from around 18 m and goes well below 40 m.
This dive site is similar to USAT Liberty Wreck an ideal place to conduct night dives. Plenty of bioluminescent phytoplankton, snowflake moray eels, huge variety of rare nudibranchs, decorator crabs, Spanish dancers are common species to be spotted here.
