Tulamben is a small fishing village on the north-east coast of Bali, Indonesia. It is among the most popular scuba diving site locations on Bali since the wreck of the USAT Liberty, a US Army Transport ship torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1942 which lies just off shore, making this wreck an excellent shore dive. This is a chance to scuba dive on a real Shipwreck with a history - not an old fishing boat deliberately sunk to give diving tourists something else to look at!
This diving wreck lies in relatively shallow water, is greatly broken up and is considered appropriate for scuba divers of all certification levels. She rests in 30 meters of water, is roughly 25 meters from shore and can be reached with a short swim from the beach. The highest point of the wreck tops out about 5 meters from the surface. A few intact sections do remain which experienced wreck divers can penetrate if they have their PADI Wreck Specialty Licence. PADI Enriched Air is also a good one for the USAT Liberty wreck as it extends your bottom times, making your dive time long enough to appreciate her in her full glory.
