The USAT Liberty wreck is situated about 30 metres off the beach at Tulamben, on Bali’s northeast coast – literally a short walk from the front door of Tulamben Wreck Divers.
The wreck is an absolute underwater wonderland of marine life – schools of trevally, bream, fusilier and anthias mill all over and around the wreck – often following you during the dive. Batfish, large sweetlips, angelfish, butterfly fish and anemone fish (with resident anemones of course) hover under ledges and in crevices. Lionfish, scorpionfish, hawkfish, bumphead parrot fish, pufferfish and coral trout are everywhere – as are the gobies, blennies, shrimps, dottyback and garden eels out on the sand flats.
The wreck is simply alive with life; corals, sponges and gorgonia fans are breathtaking along with the thousands of invertebrate life within them.

can be reached via snorkelling close to the Drop Off. The resident sharks are commonly white tip and black tip reef sharks and often rest at a depth of 20 to 30m in sandy areas. When currents are present, occasionally grey reef sharks and even hammerhead sharks circle out in the the blue.
The current may become quite strong here and sometimes cold water swells up forming thermoclines. Thermoclines may lower the water temperature to 24 degrees for a short period of time.
