Bali has been very well known throughout the world for its culture and natural beauty including its underwater beauty. Not surprisingly, every tourist who comes to Bali always takes the time to enjoy every inch of beauty. Bali has several world-class dive sites which are mostly located in east and north Bali and on the islands of Nusa Penida and Lembongan.
North Bali Reef Conservation volunteers work from Monday to Thursday, they have 3 days off from Friday to Saturday to explore the dive site with our experienced dive guide.
Below is a number of Dive sites that must be visited while in Bali:
Tulamben is a small fishing village on the north-east coast of Bali. It is among the most popular dive sites on Bali since the wreck of the Liberty, a US Army Transport ship torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1942 lies just off shore. During high-season, up to 100 divers descend to the wreck each day. It is located only 15 minutes from our North Bali Reef Conservation Program.
The wreck lies in shallow water and is considered appropriate for divers of all certification levels. The ship rests in 30 metres of water, is roughly 25 metres from shore and can be reached with a short swim from the beach. The highest point of the wreck tops out about 5 metres from the surface. The ship was torpedoed by the Japanese off the nearby Island of Lombok and the ship was towed to the beach at Tulamben for salvage operations. The 1963 eruption of Mt. Agung, which devastated much of the eastern side of Bali, drove the ship into the water just off shore, where it became encrusted with coral and a home to other sea life.
The best conditions for diving here are during October and November, when the weather is generally calm and during the start of southeast monsoon, which typically extends from May to July. In addition to a wide variety of corals and invertebrates on the wreck itself, large fish frequent the wreck in some seasons, most popularly Mola mola and whale sharks, as well as Black-tip reef sharks. Professional divers have praised local residents for minimizing local fishing activity.
