Night Diving Safari Itinerary
Day 1: Two incredible day dives in Tulamben including the USAT Liberty shipwreck. One dive before lunch and one dive after. Relax in your hotel in the afternoon before getting ready for night diving! Night dive the USAT Liberty shipwreck for hunting predators, resident bumphead parrot fish and a plethora of nocturnal fish and critters!
Day 2: Dive the Liberty wreck again at sunrise. See the wreck with no other divers as the sun comes up. After breakfast transfer to Amed for two stunning reef dives and the Japanese wreck before heading back to your hotel in south Bali.
The Tulamben wreck is an unforgettable diving experience. It’s Bali’s most popular dive site and home to an amazing amount of marine life. The chance to explore a World War Two shipwreck makes it an unmissable part of your Bali scuba vacation. However the wreck isn’t the only scuba diving site here. Don’t miss the drop-off, a shallow coral garden, and a deep coral reef.
The Liberty shipwreck is the best place to explore the underwater world at night in Bali, you’ll see hunting predators and the resident school of huge bumphead parrot fish that take shelter in the wrecks super-structure at night.
Explore stunning reefs and discover some of the most varied marine life in Bali. In Amed you’ll see everything from macro critters including pygmy seahorses, mantis shrimps, octopus, cuttlefish, emperor shrimps and even harlequin shrimps through to cruising reef sharks, sting rays, barracuda, tuna and dense schools of mackerel.
Diving the Tulamben wreck
Anybody can dive the Liberty shipwreck. It usually has little or no current and no special wreck diving skills are required because it’s bright and airy with constant access to the surface. Less experienced divers can stay in the shallower parts of the wreck which start at around 6 meters (20 ft). More experienced divers can head down to the deeper parts of the wreck at 30 meters (100 ft).
The wreck is 125 meters (411 ft) long and 17 meters (55 ft) wide. You can easily fin around it in one dive. It’s still mostly intact and you can swim through the Liberty’s huge cargo hold. The hold is full of life because so many fish shelter there from the waves and current.
The Tulamben wreck is home to an amazing 400 species of reef fish and is visited by 100 species of pelagics (silver ocean-dwelling fish). Almost every surface is covered in healthy colorful corals. Don’t believe us? Take a look at the 90-second video of the Liberty wreck at the top of this page (or click here) and you will see Jack fish, Damselfish, Gorgonian, Surgeon Fish, Feather Star, Fire Coral, Great Barracuda, Sea Squirt, Table Coral, Barrel Sponge, Green Back Bullseye, Glass Fish, Parrot Fish, Trumpet Fish, Modish Idol and Grouper. That’s just in a 90-second video. Serious underwater photographers often spend weeks here because there is such rich and varied marine life in one easily accessible location. If you love macro diving request one of Bali Scuba’s talented spotter guides when you make your booking for a Tulamben trip.
Unlike many other Bali sites Tulamben usually has warm water, around 28C (82F). It has a rocky beach with black sand underwater. Tulamben is a quiet fishing village and a great way to escape from the hustle and bustle of the busier parts of Bali. Bring your camera to grab a photo of the young porter girls carrying two tanks and a set of scuba gear on their heads! Non-diving family or friends can relax at one of the beachside restaurants or grab a massage.
