Overview

A Brief History of The USAT Liberty

The USAT Liberty, located 40 meters from the coast in Tulamben, has an intriguing history that dates back to World War II.

In 1942, while transporting rubber supplies and railroad parts from Australia, the ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine from the Lombok Strait. Two destroyers were deployed to tow the damaged ship to Singaraja harbor on Bali’s north coast, but the ship was so damaged that it had to be beached at Tulamben, where the cargo was later removed.

The ship remained on the shore for 21 years until an earthquake caused by the eruption of Mount Agung occurred in 1963. The earthquake shifted the ship towards the sea, and it now rests on a sandy slope at 5-30 meters.

 

Tulamben Dive Overview

Tulamben is a serene seaside village that has gained worldwide fame for the USAT Liberty wreck. Most scuba divers consider it one of the world’s best inshore accessible dive sites.

The diving experience in Tulamben extends beyond the USAT Liberty wreck. Other sites with diverse marine life include Drop off, Coral Garden, and Seraya. The journey to the northeast of Tulamben is also an enjoyable experience.

 

Marine Life

If you have time, we recommend staying longer to explore the area. However, if you only have one day, you’ll still love diving around the rubble which is home to sweetlips, turtles, bumphead parrot fish, huge potato cod, reef sharks, and schools of jacks fish.

Coral gardens offer even more variety and are a favorite of photographers for the diversity of their macro world, including ribbon eels, anemone fish, mantis shrimp, nudibranchs, and many other colorful fish.

 

USAT Liberty Wreck

The main reason divers come from all over the world to dive at Tulamben is the USAT Liberty wreck. The ship washes up just 40 meters from shore and remains the most accessible wreck from World War II.

The ship’s shallow location is a result of the aftermath of the torpedo disaster and the volcanic eruption. The ship’s tip is 5 meters deep, and the rest is at 30 meters, making it accessible for all divers.

With easy beach access, calm conditions, and good visibility, the Tulamben wreck is perfect for both novice and experienced divers. Liberty wreck houses many species like barracuda, turtles, parrotfish, sweetlips, seahorses, and cod.

Ask our guide to spot the leaf scorpion fish that often hangs aft at the stern of the ship. Observe the Eel Garden by the boat’s side as they slide into the sand on your approach. Spot the busy sand-digging prawns on your return to shore.
