USAT Liberty Wreck

Just 30 meters from the beach at Tulamben, Bali is a World War II cargo ship broken up but still an impressively large wreck, stretching 120 meters long on a steeply sloping sandy bottom. The top of wreckage is just 3 meters below the water surface and the bottom is at 29 meters. January 11th, 1942, this ship was hit by torpedoes from Japanese submarine I166 while crossing the Lombok Strait carrying rubber and railroad part on World War II service. The damage was critical, but two destroyers hitched up to the ship and tried to tow it to the port at Singaraja. The wounded cargo ship was taking too much water, however and her crew ran the vessel up on the beach at Tulamben. The volcanic explosion of Gunung Agung in 1963 rolled Liberty off the beach to its present location, in the process breaking in pieces. The wreck is completely covered with variety of corals and hundreds of species of fish inhabit it, an Australian Rudie Kuiter, author of the definitive guide to Indonesian reef fishes, estimates that some 400 species of reef fishes live on the wreck, which is also visited by perhaps 100 species of pelagic. This is a remarkable number for an area just 120 meters long. On the slack tide is a good time to do night dive, remarkable flashlight fishes (Anomalops katoptron) in the black corals at the bow blink the like starslight in the sky. Visibility is average 15 to 20 meters and water temperature is roughly warm 28 to 29 degrees C.

Gili Tepekong

Gili Tepekong is located not far from Amuk Bay and is a single island exposed to current coming from the North, making it a site exclusively for certified and experienced divers.

If the current and conditions permit, you pass through a small cave and come out the other side onto a magnificent vertical wall. Once you turn around and arrive back to the coral reef, you’ll be amazed by its excellent health and beauty, and the sheer quantity of fish. There is even the possibility to see some pelagics such as black and white tip reef sharks, barracuda, stingrays, and sometimes even the jaw-dropping Mola Mola (Sunfish), particularly from July to October.

Padang Bay

To dive here we start descending from the buoy close to the ferry dock; the channel runs further east to the hook of Tanjung Silayukti. At the beginning of the dive the reef is not interesting, much more interesting around the hook of Tanjung Silayukti with scattered boulder rocks, bommies, colourful hard corals, soft corals, number of Crinoids and a variety of tropical reef fishes. Turtles are frequently seen on this steeply slope reef that runs to 30 meters deep, the current is sometimes unpredictable changing its strength and direction that pushes into deep water. Don’t let us sucked into blue water and always ascend safely from the shallow reef of Tanjung Silayukti so the boat skipper can easily provide the pick up service by the end of the diving. Water temperature is frequently fallen roughly 26 degrees C.

Amed Bay

This bay is situated at the eastern tip of Bali, to dive in this bay is more convenient from a small outrigger boat provided by local fishermen, the reef ridges spurs out into the bay and the current from Lombok strait can pick up making it difficult swimming back to the bay. In the bay lies a small Japanese freighter ship, 12 meters long sits at 6 to 12 meters water.

The history behind this ship was unknown. Black corals, colourful soft corals and Gorgonians have grown well on this ship and attract variety of reef fishes to its shelter. Bommies at 10 meters on the reef slopes are covered with gorgeous bushy Gorgonians and soft corals, good numbers of reef fishes, then the reef runs away down the slope out of the bay over 30 meters deep. Schools of Jack and Blue Fin Trevally are often encountered in this site. In the bay at slope sandy bottom is good place to see unusual animals, like Shrimps, Ghost pipefish, Dragonet fish, Sand Diver fish, Gobies, Devil scorpion and others.

Menjangan Budak Wreck

Located east of POS I, the depth of the wreck starts at 35m and down to 50m. It is an old wreck (early 19th century), the history is not well documented. The wreck is “kind of metal plated” and full of schools of Yellow Stripe Snapper. Two resident white tip sharks are among the marine lives you’ll probably see. Some artifacts left untouched. The wreck itself is not big, but it’s deep, with normal air, you probably can explore the wreck in just 10 to 15 minutes, with the use of EANx (nitrox) is surely beneficial to extend the no deco time. Visibility is generally from 15 to 25m. Menjangan is a nature reserve and the only place to find this species of deer. If your lucky you could have a lunch companion
