Overview

The USS Liberty Wreck is the most famous dive site in Bali. It is also one of the best sunken ship wrecks in the world! If you come to Bali, you absolutely have to dive there The liberty ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo then was beached near Tulamben. In 1963, the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and it now lies on a sand slope in 9 to 30 m of water.The wreck is about 130 m long with the shallowest part at about 5 m deep and the deepest on the other side of the wreck at about 30 m deep.

You can find a variety of underwater species, like turtles, clownfish, beautiful corals and eels near the wreck. Fantastic.

The ship can be approached by walking from the rocky beach itself. Beautiful corals and fish right next to beach. The mighty Mt. Agung is visible from the beach - wonderful sight. The shipwreck does tend to get crowded. Try to go in early -...More

So much life, so many humphead parrotfishes! Did three dives (dawn, day and night) there and thought that was quite minimal. Bring your thickest booties for walking on the rocky shore though.

First of all - Yes, you can dive! Even if you cannot float in the water or have never even snorkeled in your life, you still can see this amazing shipwreck at Tulamben. In my personal opinion there cannot be a better spot for a...More

The site is certainly memorable, but because of the crowds it was not my favorite dive in the area. Ask if you can arrange a sunrise dive with your operator to both minimize the crowds and get a better look at the legendary bumphead wrasse.

This was our first scuba diving experience. We got certified with The Underwater Tribe. They were patient with us on our first dive. The Shipwreck was an awesome experience. Waters were clear and clean.

Go early morning. The night dive was less interesting but the early morning dives were great. Quite a busy site but there are amazing moments to experience.

We did 4 dives on the Liberty, one with sidemount to penetrate the smaller parts. We used Bali Bubbles, guided by Bram, to do these dives. Top location!

A very large wreck - depth can mislead you. Lots of large and small marine life. Very little drift / current - a bit more closer to the surface. The end of the dive is full of macro life at shallow depth. Easy shore entry,...More

Yes you can. I stayed at the ocean sun resort and could hire snorkel and dive gear from the resort. I’m pretty sure you had to go out with a guide though.

Yes/No. If not certified then you will have to do a "Try dive/Discover Scuba" course. This is an all day affair and involves some theory and pool work before diving. You will then dive with an instructor to a max 12m. The... More
