Hi, my name is Kira. I grew up in Denmark in a small town outside Copenhagen. Later I moved to the capital to study and work. I have a background in Business Administration and Commercial Laws and changed the office job out with a set of diving equipment in 2014.
My partner in business and in life, Serge, is Canadian. Originally from Quebec (why he is speaking French as well as English), but lived most of his adult life in British Columbia. Since 2004 Serge has done seasons in between Canada and Thailand; being a diving instructor and building loghomes. He is also a certified paramedic. As one of our friends said: Serge is a human Swiss Army Knife; a man of many talents. Comes in handy when running a dive center.
We are looking forward to meeting you or seeing you again!
The dive center
Amed Jepun Divers started as a small dive center with big dreams; a tiny shop and a few sets of equipment. The goal was to create a place for divers to come together, and feel like part of the Jepun family. It's not only about the in water part, it's about the total diving experience. We are here because we love diving, and we love to share our passion with other likeminded divers from all over the world. The shop was build on a leased piece of land (only 100m2) and we chose the location based on things as atmosphere, potential to start a business, and of course the amazing dive sites. We have since expanded the dive center, after taking over the rest of the property in 2019. That means we can now accommodate more divers, and we have lots of hangout areas for you to enjoy before, in between, and after diving.
Safety and comfort are key words. We take pride in being able to offer well maintained diving equipment at all times. Aqualung BCD's and Apeks regulators. Short and long 3mm wetsuits (water temperatures 26-30C all year around). We use boots and openheel fins because we are diving from shore and have to walk in the water. Perscription masks available (-3 and -4).
100% oxygen and first aid kits also available on our trips and at the dive center at all times. All divemasters and instructors are up to date first aid responders.
Amed is a coastline of small fishing villages, and you will see all the local fishing boats parked on the beach or out on the ocean. The atmosphere is very realxed; away from crazy traffic and night clubs. Each night you'll find live music in a few bars (mostly reggae), and the music ends at 11pm. Good when you have to be ready for diving the next morning. Take a nice scooter ride along the coast, or up in the mountains. You should check out the amazing sunset points (Jemeluk Bay and Lahangan Sweet), ricefields, Tirta Gangga water palace and Lempuyang temple with gateway to heaven. You will find a great selection of restaurants, spa treatments, yoga, outdoor movie nights, pub quiz (saturday), and other social events. You can also help us keep the beaches clean while participating in Trash Hero's cleanup days (usually Monday 5pm).
