AquaMarine Diving - Bali's Day Trip to Tulamben Bay/USAT Liberty Shipwreck (BALI)
USAT Liberty Shipwreck
Possibly the world’s easiest wreck dive and definitely Bali’s most popular dive site.
History of the USAT Liberty
Built circa WWI, this 120m cargo ship was equipped with guns for WWII. The Liberty was torpedoed by the Japanese off the coast of Lombok. Although attempts were made to tow the ship to north Bali, it was taking on too much water and therefore was semi-beached at Tulamben.
During the last eruption of Mt Agung, Bali’s highest and most sacred mountain, the earth tremours roched the boat down the beach and into the sea.
Popular with Underwater Photographers
The USAT Liberty Shipwreck is very popular with underwater photographers/videographers as it is totally encrusted in anemones, gorgonian fans, hard and soft corals.
As most of the fish are resident, they are quite used to scuba divers – from the goatfish and wrasse that nibble around your feet and fins during entry/exit, to the unicornfish and surgeonfish that accompany you down the slope towards the Wreck.
Each area of the Liberty Shipwreck offers something different to see.
