USAT Liberty Ship Wreck

#1 - USAT Liberty Ship Wreck

Bali, Pacific

Unrated
(4)
The Liberty wreck is Bali’s most famous dive site. Built circa WWI this cargo ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine off Lombok. Despite attempts to tow the ship to north Bali it was taking on too much water and so was semi-beached at Tulamben. Over the years anything reusable was removed. In 1963, with the earth tremors from the last eruption of Mount Agung, the wreck slid further down the slope where it still lies (as close to the beach as it can be and still be underwater!). The Liberty lies approximately 30m offshore almost parallel to the beach on the sand slope, and is suitable for all levels of qualification and experience. The wreck lies in depths from 9-30m. The shallowest part of the wreck, where it touches the sand slope, is at 5-10m. Depth along the middle of the wreck averages 16-20m. The lower edge of the wreck is 20-28m (at high tide). The wreck is 120m long, it is quite broken up but you can still see the guns, toilets, boilers, anchor chain, etc. It is a lovely dive site, possibly the world’s easiest wreck dive. You can also snorkel on the wreck - the highest point of the stern is about 4m below the surface. Visibility is usually 18-25m, lower when it has been raining. There is rarely a current present, at most it will be mild. During the 3 days before the full moon, there are usually waves. The air temperature is 25-32 degrees, the water 26-28 degrees. The wreck is very popular with photographers as it is totally encrusted in anemone, gorgonians and corals. The black sand provides an excellent colour contrast for the incredible variety of marine life, which includes a huge school of big-eyed trevally and over 400 other species of fish. You will see just about everything in any Indo-Pacific Reef Guide book if you dive here. The variety is amazing. Night diving on the wreck is fantastic, especially during full moon. You may see Spanish dancers, flashlight fish, and phosphorescence.
Wakatobi Dive Resort's House Reef

I can only concur with one of my UW photography idols, JAMES WATT, who after his first visit said: "There is no question in my mind that the house reef is the best house reef available at any dive resort in the world." I mean the place is absolutely unbelievable! There's not a square inch that doesn't have coral growth on it, all the way from the surface down to as deep as you can go (the resort only offers pure air so far). But what really blows your mind is the ease of access. Check out their website and you will see from the aerial what I mean. Just step out of your cabin, on with a tank and enjoy. I am going back! -- PygmyDiver This one's easy to get to. Simply hop on a plane and fly to Bali. Then enjoy the resort's own charter flight to the island. You leave Bali at 8am and you can be diving by noon. From then on, every day at the resort you have this awesome reef available for top-notch diving at any time of day - and only 50' from your room!
Tulamben Drop-Off

#3 - Tulamben Drop-Off

Bali, Pacific

Unrated
(2)
This site is an old lava flow from Mount Agung, at the east side end of the Tulamben bay. The dive starts off on a steep sand slope with nudibranches, flounders, goby/shrimp sets. At 12m are sponges with many varieties of shrimp, leaf scorpion fish and crinoids, often with attendant ghost pipefish. Continuing round to the east, the slope develops into a reef with very impressive topography, becoming a vertical wall from 15m and descending to below 60m. Visibility is usually 15-20m (due to the amount of plankton in the water). The wall has profuse sponges, corals, black coral bushes, gorgonian fans - at 30m there is a sea fan that reaches 2m in width. You may see white tip and black tip reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, big bumphead parrotfish, some big filefish (including scrawled) and moray eel. Late afternoon is the time to see the wide variety of lionfish. From southern Bali (Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Denpasar) drive east via Gianyar town, Semarapura and Amlapura. From Amlapura head north to Culik. Tulamben is about 20 minutes from Culik. Resorts are situated on either side of the road in Tulamben. Those on the right run down to the beach. The drive takes about 3 hours.
Secret Bay

#4 - Secret Bay

Bali, Pacific

beginner
(1)
Secret Bay is about 2km wide and very shallow (3-12m). It contains two small islands and has some areas of mangrove. Secret Bay is the only bay off the narrow Bali Strait, where currents can reach 7 knots. A reef lying just outside the mouth of the bay creates a channel through which these waters flow, and this is what makes Gilimanuk an extremely interesting dive site. Strong tidal currents mean that Secret Bay's fish and invertebrates are extremely healthy, colourful and well-fed (and that the water here is colder at Bali's other dive sites, about 25 degrees). Entering the bay from the channel the bottom is fine black volcanic sand. The channel contains no coral although the sides are scattered with bommies full of angel fish, butterfly fish, schools of razor fish and tiny reef fish, including cardinal fish and multitudes of damselfish. The best time to dive is on an incoming tide or around high tide, it doesn’t matter if it is early or late in the day, as the bay will have filled with clear water from the Bali Strait. Gilimanuk Bay contains many rare macro-photography subjects, including nudibranches, gobies, crustaceans, dragonets, abundant seahorses and pipefish, juvenile Batavia batfish, large areas of long-spined sea urchins with clingfish, and many other organisms. At other sites it is difficult to see juvenile marine life as they hide to avoid predators. However as the bay is shallow and there are very few large fish juveniles in Secret Bay have very little to hide from. Night diving at Secret Bay is a unique experience! You can see cephalopods of all shapes and sizes, crustaceans wandering in search of dinner and other weird and wonderful creatures. While Bali offers great diversity of dive sites Gilimanuk Bay is unique within Bali. It is the very definition of muck-diving. No rich coral reefs, no depth to speak of, it is a site for macro-photographers, and maybe for recreational divers looking for something different from the norm. From southern Bali (Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Denpasar) drive via Tabanan to Soka. Then follow the coast road via Medewi to Negara. From Negara head to Gilimanuk, from where you can shore dive at Secret Bay. The drive takes about 3-3.5 hours.
Tulamben House Reef

Running along the middle section of Tulamben bay is a shallow reef of mainly table and fire corals interspersed with anemones and sponges. The fish life is very diverse. You can see a surprising number of blue ribbon eels, octopus, shrimps and anemone fish. Bigger fish seen here include bumphead parrotfish and black tip reef shark. The depth (averaging 8-12m) and location make the Tulamben house reef a very good and popular night dive. -- From southern Bali (Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Denpasar) drive east via Gianyar town, Semarapura and Amlapura. From Amlapura head north to Culik. Tulamben is about 20 minutes from Culik. Resorts are situated on either side of the road in Tulamben. Those on the right run down to the beach.

At Kubu Point there are two different reefs accessible from the shore. After a 20m swim from the shore the reefs run from a depth of 5-40m. The profile is a black sand slope where you can find many garden eels. There are both soft and hard corals in great diversity, including many sea fans. Fish life here includes barracuda, pygmy seahorses, sharks and some large octopus. Visibility at Kubu is normally excellent, even when it has been wavy with low visibility at Tulamben. From southern Bali (Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Denpasar) drive east via Gianyar town, Semarapura and Amlapura. From Amlapura head north to Culik. Tulamben is about 20 minutes from Culik.

Close Encounters, a long three-sided reef, of which two sides are very good for diving, while the third side of a large sandy slope exists. Two kilometers from the beach, the reef has steep slopes, resulting in a flat up top, which at its deepest point is 12 m and rises up to 3 to 4 m. The slope himself ends in a sandy ground at 25 to 30 m depth. Currents on all house reefs are low to absent, unless we get the bigger tides with shorter intervals. The corals, which cover the entire slope is a good mix of hard and soft corals. Most interesting is probably the eastern side with a lot of angles, corners and crevices, healthy sponges that much protection for the underwater life. The dive offers typical reef and shoal fish, schools of snappers, large jacks, bat fish, sweet lips, emperor fish and lots of fusiliers, also with a little luck frog fish, crocodile fish, scraps of fish, many different kinds of nudibranchs, scorpion fish and octopus.

Relaxing drift dive alongside a beautiful reef although some parts have been damaged by storms. You'll see lots of green sea turtles! Visibility changes from poor to excellent within hours - one never can tell. The current will head direction south-east. So one should take a boat ride from the jetty 5 minutes to the north and drift down back to the jetty from there.

USAT Liberty Wreck

Indonesia, Bali, Tulamben

The USAT Liberty is one of Bali's most famous dive site. USAT Liberty Glo, a United States Army Transport, was built at the Hog Island emergency shipyard in Philadelphia during World War I, but was completed after the November 1918 armistice. Shortly after the U.S. entry into World War II, Liberty Glo was torpedoed and beached on the island of Bali and is now a popular dive site. Hog Island Hull No. 517 was laid down as SS Scooba on June 12, 1918 but by the time it was launched on June 14, 1919 it had been renamed SS Liberty Glo. Delivered to the U.S. Shipping Board on August 2, 1919, she was a cargo ship of 5,000 gross tons and 7,825 deadweight tons, 394 feet (120 m) long and 54 feet (16 m) beam. Liberty Glo was the 36th Hog Islander built and one of twelve built as "Type B" troop carriers. (Liberty Glo was not a Liberty Ship, which were a similar concept of vessel built during World War II.) The redesignated USAT Liberty Glo, remeasured at 6,211 tons, was bound from Australia to the Philippines on January 11, 1942 with a cargo of railway parts and rubber for the war effort when she was torpedoed by Japanese submarine I-166 about 10 mi (19 km) southwest of Lombok Strait. U.S. destroyer USS Paul Jones (DD-230) and Dutch destroyer HNLMS Van Ghent took the damaged ship in tow attempting to reach Singaraja, the Dutch port and administrative centre for the Lesser Sunda Islands, on the north coast of Bali. However she was taking too much water and so was beached on the eastern shore of Bali at Tulamben so that the cargo and fittings could be salvaged. Liberty Glo was one of 58 Hog Islanders that were casualties in World War II. In 1963 the tremors associated with the eruption of Mount Agung caused the vessel to slip off the beach, and she now lies on a sand slope in 30 to 100 feet (9 to 30 m) of water, providing one of the most popular dives off Bali. Dive operators commonly misname the wreck "USS Liberty", and it has also been incorrectly referred to as a Liberty Ship, which were a similar concept of vessel built during the Second World War. Source: Wikipedia.org Between 10:00 to 14:00 o`clock it`s very crowded there. Groups of japanese divers arrive at this time with busses. The dive-experience of these divers are very low or less. Early morning and late afternoon dives are very quiet, if you stay in Tulamben. Just SSE of the restaurant. USAT Liberty Wreck is also known as USAT Liberty Glo, Hog Island Hull No. 517, SS Scooba.
