Bali: Tulamben Bay Beginner's Dive Experience

1. Bali: Tulamben Bay Beginner's Dive Experience

Get a better understanding and feeling for scuba diving on a beginner's dive experience on the north-east coast of Bali. Following pick-up from your hotel, journey to Tulamben Bay to discover its white sandy beaches and clear blue water. Learn the basics of diving, including how to relax and reassure yourself during a dive. If you decide you want to go further, the day can count as a credit towards completing your PADI Open Water Diver course. Benefit from a dive site that is right in front of the set-up location in Tulamben, so you will spend more time on your experience and less time traveling. The wreck of the USAT Liberty is so close to the shore you could probably throw a stone and hit it! Expect to see many blue-spotted stingrays, along with octopus, scorpion fish, sweet lips, trigger fish, moray eel and more. Take 2 dives and get the option to practice in a swimming pool before your first dive experience. Porters are provided to carry the equipment, and a complimentary lunch will be served between your dives.

Bali: Tulamben Bay and the USAT Liberty Wreck Dive

2. Bali: Tulamben Bay and the USAT Liberty Wreck Dive

Following pick-up from your hotel, journey to the village of Tulamben on the north-east coast of Bali, best known for its black beach covered with smooth, fist-size rocks. Upon arrival, head to Tulamben Bay to take part in a wreck dive and get close to the World War II cargo ship, the USAT Liberty. Located just 30 meters from the beach, the wreck measures an impressive 120 meters on a steeply sloping sandy bottom, with its top just 3 meters below the water surface. Sunk by torpedoes on January 11, 1942, the USAT Liberty was carrying rubber and railroad parts for war service across the Lombok Strait. The damage was critical, but 2 destroyers hitched her up and tried to tow her to the port at Singaraja. She was taking too much water, so the crew decided to run her up on the beach at Tulamben. The volcanic explosion of Gunung Agung in 1963 rolled her off the beach to the present location, breaking her in pieces along the way. Now completely covered with corals and home to hundreds of species of fish, the wreck is submerged to a maximum depth of 29 meters. Considered one of the best beach entry dive sites in Bali, the wreck of the USAT Liberty is just for starters! A 15-minute journey further east takes you to the Alamanda Reef and Batu Kelebit Reef. Travel by car 10 minutes west from Tulamben and you reach the village of Kubu, where access to the pristine Kubu Reef is easy. Night diving is especially popular, with an average visibility of 15 to 20 meters and water temperatures around 28 to 29 degrees Celsius. Join this diving adventure for a fantastic day in a unique area and get up close to the magnificent marine life along the way! Please note, this tour is only available to certified divers.

Im from Australia , so was very impressed with there grasp of the Aussie language. They even got my dad jokes. I didn’t have my Padi dive ticket with me , but no problem as they could look it up. Nothing was too difficult for them or me. I hadn’t dived for years , so we ran through the underwater hand signals as a refresher. Dive spot was excellent & amazing. I was very impressed indeed, Good visibility & so much to see , including a wide variety of fish & corals. The best dive I’ve ever had. Staff friendly and helpful. Nothing was a problem , not pushy at all , very relaxed, letting me dive at my own pace , which was quite slow, as there was so much to see. My dive instructor, took about 100 photos of me in and around the sunken ship & of the beautiful scenery. Would highly recommend these crew , & dive spot.

I really enjoyed this diving tour. The crew was professional, and the equipment was already all set up when I arrived. The diving itself was a great experience, very interesting to see the USAT Liberty Wreck, and the underwater environment that build up over the years around it. And I felt always safe with my diving instructor. I had a great time and can definitely recommend this tour.

We booked the tour for three and were looked after by two instructors. This tour is really worth every penny! The diving experience was amazing! Everything was explained to us very well and was also very easy to understand. The equipment is in great condition and the lunch was also really great!

As a first time diver, it was an amazing experience! I would highly recommend it. The dive trainer was great, and never left my side. I was comfortable the whole time and got to see an astounding shipwreck.

as someone who can't swim , to be given the chance to see "what's out there" was amazing
