Wreck diving is one of the most popular forms of diving. Vessels stranded on the seabed conjure up images of raging seas, dramatic events and hidden treasures. It’s not for nothing that the Liberty wreck off the coast of Tulamben on the east coast of Bali attracts experienced and novice divers from around the world. The marine life around the wreck is extraordinary.
Bluespotted stingrays, mackerel and clownfish are just a few of the 300 species of reef fish that you may encounter whilst diving around Liberty. A wreck is often the only solid object in a wide area of seabed so many sea animals and shellfish are attracted to it. The conditions around Liberty are perfect for divers: weak currents, warm water and good visibility. Parts of the wreck are just 5 metres below the surface, so you can go snorkelling here as well.
“Wrecks often remain on the seabed for hundreds of years”
