An artificial reef and ‘the macro dive spot’ in Amed to see critters. Great spot for underwater macro photographers!

Ghost Bay has suffered from the harvesting of hard coral that took place in the late 1980’s, which have now been replace by pieces of artificial reef.

There are some areas of gentle slope, others of steep slope, a flat bottom in places, and patches of coral a short distance away from the main part.

The artificial reef is home to large stonefish and moray eels, while on the slopes you can see Mimic octopus, Painted and Clown frogfish including tiny juveniles, and other sand dwellers. Make sure you look carefully at any pieces of old rope, sea pens and rocks, seahorses and ghostpipefish love this area.

In the depths we’ve often seen sleeping White-tip reef sharks, schooling batfish and bannerfish, Bumphead parrotfish, and some unexpected pelagic fish.

** Note: more marine life to mix: Rare species like the clown frog fish, different kinds of ghost pipe fish, mimic octopuses, huge stone fishes, amazing crabs, tiny juvenile lion fishes, pigmy seahorses, razor fish, just to mention a few, can be found at Amed Ghost Bay. Photographers from all over the world come here to take pictures of these rarely found species.
