Our safety measures

BINTANG DIVERS (in Amed) is located about 15 km away straight to the east side from the Mt.Agung crater, and located in out of hazardous area. However, since the volcanic activity is a natural phenomenon, it may exceed the forecast. We are preparing safety measures as follows.

  • Arrangement of on-site land-based staff (Immediate response at eruption)
  • Monitoring of wind direction (Volcanic ash falling)
  • Securing dust mask (Volcanic ash falling)
  • EMERGENCY Securing transportation to the southern area of Bali (Vehicle or Speed boat)
  • EMERGENCY Assistance for securing accommodation when airport closed
  • EMERGENCY Assistance for securing transportation to other airports (Lombok or Surabaya (Juanda) International Airport)

Safety measures by yourself

In preparation for an emergency, we strongly recommend the following safety measures.

  • Bring dust mask (for volcanic ash), long sleeve, long pants
  • Air ticket insurance
  • Please read accurate information of Mt.Agung from Indonesian government agencies.
  • We will notify immediately on BINTANG DIVERS Facebook in case of volcanic activity that would cause changes in our diving operation.

BINTANG DIVERS will not claim the cancellation fee about dive fee as special measures when cancellation or delay of airplane accompanying volcanic eruption.
