Tulamben Snorkeling is to enjoy the amazing site in Tulamben east of Bali coast which is well known by the ship wreck and the coral garden
1-a. See vibrant coral and fish life – Wreck of the USAT Liberty, Tulamben
Tulamben is probably the most famous destination among divers in Bali.
Being home to the American warship wreck, the USAT Liberty that torpedoed during WWII while traversing the Lombok Strait.
The Liberty eventually made it to Bali but had taken on too much water and eventually beached off Tulamben and sank.
The bottom of the wreck is at around 30m, making the deep part of it accessible only to advanced SCUBA divers and expert free divers.
But the top reaches up to 5m, and when the water is clear, much of the huge 125m long wreck can see from the surface.
The best thing about the Liberty for snorkelers though, is the huge amount of fish life that have made the wreck home and overgrown with vibrant healthy coral.
With swarms of tropical reef fish and loads of interesting history, the Liberty is easily one the best snorkeling wrecks in Asia.
Snorkel right above an ocean garden – The Coral Garden, Tulamben
Being Bali’s premier dive destination, there’s more to Tulamben than just the wreck of the Liberty.
In fact the highlight for snorkelers is probably the Coral Garden, a shallow reef that starts almost as soon as you step into the water.
The 150m reef is very shallow, with soft and hard corals from 3m down to about 12m.
