Diving in Famous USAT Liberty Wreck in Tulamben
I think right after the areas around Padangbai and Nusa Penida the most popular places for scuba diving holiday in Bali is Amed. It all starts in city of Cucik and runs towards the east, taking up seven villages. Amed is also the area not far from Tulamben which is found about 30 km to the north of there and Tulamben is the place to be if you wanna dive the famous wreck, the USAT Liberty. BTW, one of our favorite diving trip we do in OK Divers Padangbai. Many divers from around the globe come to see this old ship wreck with it’s stunning coral gardens and marine life every year. This US Army transport ship sank after it was torpedoed in 1942 by a Japanese submarine. It is found at around 3 to 30 meters depth and it is open to all level of divers. On your dive you will see great variety of soft and hard corals which serves like a best shelter for all tropical fish one can imagine and if you are lucky some pelagic can pass through while you're exploring the wreck as well.
If you like night diving I can honestly tell you that one of my best night dives happened on this wreck. The scenery gets somehow even better in the dark and fish like barracuda, bump-head parrotfish or hunting moray eels wont let you be bored even for a second. Not scuba divers? Do not worry Tulamben is one of the best wrecks in the world fit for snorkelling too. It starts only in 5 meters and with the good visibility, most of the year, you will be able to see it nearly all even from the surface. Trip to Tulamben from OK Divers last around one our in the bus and we are able to take you there nearly every day.
