OVERVIEW
DIVING TULAMBEN
 
The once-small fishing village of Tulamben has the world famous USAT Liberty to dive on. This large shipwreck lies in shallow water, which since it’s sinking in 1963 has become a fantastic artificial reef, making it a great dive-site for beginners and advanced alike.
 
REASON TO DIVE HERE
 
Divers come from all around the world to see this fantastic wreck with it’s unique atmosphere. It lies at exactly the right depth to promote great coral growth, as it gets gentle nourishing currents, and is untouched by wave movement. The restaurant is on the beach and you can snorkel, so it’s a great day out for the whole family!
 
DESCRIPTION
 
The Liberty was a US Army Transport ship (USAT) and built over 130 years ago, and used in both world wars. She was damaged in the second world war, and beached in Tulamben on its way to Singaraja for repairs. The famous eruption of Mount Agung in the early 60s caused her to slide down the slope and turn onto her right hand side, and sink. She now lies on her side just off the beach at Tulamben, with the lower hull now buried in the sand at about 7m, so as you swim over it you can easily mistake it for just part of the beach – until you get to the deck which drops away from you to about 25m, with boilers, deck, structure etc all nicely visible and with a couple of swim-throughs for careful divers. The entire ship is encrusted with coral, making this a true artificial reef, and easily worth 2 or more dives. Night-dives and dawn-dives are beautiful here too, with the coral looking great under torch-light, and many different critters to be found, both on the wreck and in the black sand near it, notably many muck-dive critters and huge bump-head parrot fish which disappear during the day.
