Safety is always our first concern:

We of course have oxygen on each trip But also some binoculars for the boat crew
to search for dives, and most of all we are the 1st dive operator in Indonesia which uses
Nautilus Lifelines (A water prove radio) so the diver’s can communicate with the boat
crew as soon as the group surface.

Bali Dive & Snorkel Site - Tulamben Wreck

dive bali tulamben wreckThe Tulamben Wreck is directly situated near the beach on Bali's northeast coast. The 125m long and 16.6 meters wide wreck rests in a 90 degree angle with the deck facing the sea side and used to be an American supply ship named „USA Liberty". Anchored off the coast of Lombok, the ship was torpedoed by the Japanese submarine I-66 (which became later I-166) on January 11 1942 off Bali at the position S 8.05, E 115.28.

tulamben bali ship wreckMiraculously nobody got hurt, but the damage turned the ship into a non-functioning and useless hull. The American Navy's plan to tow the ship to Singaraja harbor (north Bali) failed as the harbor was completely occupied, so the ship was intentionally stranded on the rocky beach of Tulamben, where it was unloaded. In 1963 the volcano Agung erupted and the magma flow pressed the ship back into the sea where it presently rests at a depth of 3 to 29 meters.
Since then, coral covered the wreckage completely and turned it into a home for many species of fish. From time to time, a Napoleon fish or huge  barracuda drops by. You may dive or snorkel this wreck comfortably, accessing it directly from the beach.

Google has published in June 2015 a outstanding Video for their "Google Street View" program.
