The Liberty Shipwreck – Tulamben

The wreck of USAT Liberty build 1915, an impressive 100 metre long remnant of WW II. On 11 January 1942 about 15 km sout west of Lombok, a Japanese submarine torpedoed this armed vessel. Whilst in tow by two destroyer, she was successfully beach on the shore of Tulamben to salvage the cargo.

The violent eruption of Mount Agung in 1963 pushed the vessel back into the water just 30 meters offshore and lies parallel to shore on a steep sand slope with a big school of horse-eye jack that almost seen on every dive, all the fish on the shipwreck quite tame and can be hand feeding. ( not recommended )

The Liberty shipwreck could be one of the most visited and easiest wreck dive in the world.

Tulamben Slope

Right in fron of Mimpi and Paradise Resort, leading authors of marine books including Rudi Kuiter, Roger Steen and Gerry Allen share a secret – the best place to hunt for a new species is in the bay, is not on the wreck, nor on the wall.
Amongst the small congregations of crinoids, sponges and anemones scattered across the vast black sand slope are the best place to search for white, gold and red ghose pipefish, orange sea horses, almost 33 species of nudibranch, devil fish, garnets, mimic octopus, shrimp gobies, rare squad lobster, squid, snake eel, sea spider. Perhaps as testimony to te uniqueness of the area, in 1996, the world most celebrated marine photographer David Doubilet spend up to 6 hours a day fro 4 weeks in the bay, probing the same black sand.

Crystal Bay – Nusa Penida

Located on the south side of Gamet Bay, southwest of Nusa Penida there is another bay with rocky island in the middle of it called Crystal Bay. Descend directly down to the reef top at 5 to 10 metres. There is a white sandy base to the reef, covered with anemones and soft corals. Following the north side of the bay into the corner, at a depth of 12 metres there is a cave which opens to the sky that has bats asleep in it.
The bay is vulnerable to swell, creating up and down currents. When the current is present there is the opportunity to see white tip sharks, leopard sharks, mantas and eagle rays.
The best site to see the sunfish or mola-mola ( August to October )

Manta Point – Nusa Penida

Manta Point is about 30 minutes further than our usually visited dive site at Nusa.
Since the manta congregated at a coral head no deeper than 8 meters so we can stay more than 50 minutes Up close and personal with 3 to 10 giant mantaray.
At Manta Point we’re not talking about crossing or passing Mantaray, but we will dance with the Mantaray on the right place and at the right time.
This dive site is an exposed location facing Indian Ocean means that sometimes the conditions are too rough for the boat to make it down there, and on arrival giant swells can make diving impossible.

Toyapakeh – Nusa Penida

Toyapakeh is probably the most commonly dived site on Nusa Penida, the reef is very beautiful with rugged bommies, rich with color and fish, at 15 – 18 meters.
The best coral in Bali and clear waters. Towering bommies, and a rich slope. Pufferfish and Giant Trevally. Anything & everything has at sometime been seen here; Mola mola, Shark, Manta and other Rays, and lots of big ocean fishes. Be careful sometimes fierce & unpredictable currents

Ceningan Wall – Nusa Ceningan

Ceningan Golden wall is a truly world class dive site, the current is the main problem at this dive site, if it’s more than 2 knots heading to the south or into the channel, don’t dive or exit immediately if you’re underwater.
The best area of the wall is only 50 meters before the north tip of Nusa Ceningan if you drift into the channel and it drops down to 180 meters, with it’s golden carpeted soft coral covered the wall in a very pristine condition.

Blue corner – Nusa Lembongan

Blue Corner on the northwest of Nusa Lembongan is a very serious drift dive location. The current can be strong here and can try to pull you downwards. The dive starts east off the point where the lighthouse is.
Nature rules this dive site, sometimes we can dive this site for 45 minutes, sometimes we should end a dive no more 15 minutes.
The reef terrace at 10 meters, and then drop down to 34 meters where the mola-mola or the sunfish commonly seen ( August to October, water temp. could be 18 C / 64 F )
Swimming with mola-mola is an enigmatic experience to die for, once, twice, thrice and never enough.
Large white tip reef sharks often patrol the reef accompany by bigeye trevally and the occasional tuna.

Tepekong Island

This little island is only 1km from Mimpang that offers some of the most spectacular diving in Bali. The Canyon is located off the very southwestern tip of Tapekong with a maximum depth of 40m. Commencing your dive on the steep slope on the islands western face, continue down to 25 metres and enter the canyon. Explore the canyon you’ll be able to see an area with huge schools of sweetlips, batfish, snapper, bumphead parrotfish, unicornfish and big-eyed trevally, all of which can nearly fill the canyon. Sharks are relatively common in this area, usually white tip reef sharks. It is very rare not to have a current here

Gili Mimpang / Shark Point

Also known as Batu Tiga, Mimpang is a group of three big rocks and another half dozen smaller ones. The rocks follow an underwater ridge that runs north to northeast. Mimpang’s southern extent drops off sharply to the deep water, but the north shallows up to the mainland of Bali. The topography of Mimpang is diverse with sloping reef, wall, craggy rocks covered in hard and soft corals and big gorgonians and the southern end is one of the richest in Bali. The fish life is exceptional including schooling fish, unusual small reef fish and lots of sharks – the best chance of seeing sharks in Bali especially when the current pick up to 3 or 4 knots, just hang on at 15 – 18 meters and watch the show at least 6 to 8 white tip reef shark will be around and once with the Grand daddy 1,5 meters Blackish Giant Trevally, current conditions can be tricky, in some cases you will be limited to diving either the east or the west end of the point.

Blue Lagoon is just north of Padang Bai. With white sandy bottom sloping gradually to 22m before a short section of wall. However the fish life is amazing. This is the site for sharks including the unusual cat shark, wobbegong shark and white tip shark. Also you will see interesting smaller animals such as nudibranchs, shrimps, crabs, squid and octopus.
