I am Putu from Amed in Bali.
Amed is known for its unspoiled coral reefs and great snorkeling locations. It's tropical climate and scenic views make it truly a hidden paradise. I come from a Fishermen family and my house stands on the beach. So basically I grew up on the beach and it's easy to guess that I love it!
One day I met a canoeist from Japan and got very interested in the idea. I learned how to paddle the canoe, and how to rescue, so now I would like to show you the stunning scenery of Amed
from the ocean side.
Let's share the unforgettable time by canoe!

I was highly disappointed. Our guide was unprofessional, not even knowing what exactly what my friend and I had signed up for when he picked us up. He seemed distracted most of the time and never briefed us on safety, what to expect or sequence of events. I've only kayaked on lakes and am not as comfortable in that ocean, and my friend was almost completely new to kayaking. The weather was a bit rough. He ended up taking my friend with him because she was so nervous. They took on lots of water at the beginning and had to continue pumping water out frequently. I was left on my own much of the time and even had to yell out to him to get his attention to wait because they were so far ahead of me which made me feel even more unsafe. We never snorkeled and went to shore early, which I was thankful for. We had to wait around for another hour or two while he tried to figure out how to get the kayaks and us back since we ended in an unusual spot after less than an hour out. He did eventually end up taking us to a spot in Amed so that we could view the sunset and then dropped us off in town so we could get some dinner. Then made sure to ask if we'd paid! Unfortunately, I had already paid online prior. Wish I could get a refund for this. I was really looking forward to kayaking and snorkeling and watching the sunset on the water and ended up being disappointed and frustrated by the whole experience.
Excellent tour! The guide very nice, regardless he could not speak English, he was very kind
It was a good experience :) Our tour guide Ketut was a nice but shy guy.
The canoe experience was a tiring one but it was quite the achievement. Canoed all the way there to have a look at Mount Agung and then capsized twice. Got back on after the second time and paddled all the way back in the dark and with the canoe facing the opposite direction. Hahahahahah!
Ketut helped us take a few pictures with his waterproof cam.
Only torment was the drive from Ubud to Amed. Really didn't expect it to be such a long and winding drive.
So... Yep! Fun fun fun! Hhaaha
The kayak was comfortable making the experience really pleasant. In addition, the staff that helped and guided us were really knowledgable and brought us to the the areas where we managed to see corals and fish! The crystal clear waters made it all the more beautiful.
