Bluehill dive center

Tulamben is one of the top premier dive sites in Bali, a mecca attracting divers from all over the world. It's a favorite place for experienced photographers looking for the chance to photograph a rare nudibranch or the impressive whale shark; it’s also an attractive destination to beginner divers who wish to complete their discovery scuba or open water certification course due to the easy access dive sites near shore and the mild or absent current.  The water around the shore of Tulamben is relatively calm and pleasant most times of the year and with good visibility. 

fun dives

There are 5 main dive sites in Tulamben, all close to one another. The first 3 are shore entry sites, quickly reached by a short drive, and 2 that require a short 10 minute ride by local boat. Beyond these 5, they're many more spots to explore - contact us for more information.

Liberty Shipwreck

USAT Liberty Wreck

The USAT Liberty is a relic from WWII, a cargo ship that was crippled by a Japanese war ship and beached on the shore of Tulamben. In 1963 the Mount Agung eruption rocked the foundation of Tulamben and caused the Liberty to sink below the surface and slide down the sandy slope to where she rests today, just 25 metres offshore. Today, it's a top reef site in Bali as time has covered the wreck in colorful hard and soft corals which has attracted a large variety of sea creatures. Of note are the spectacular bumphead parrot fish that hang around in the early mornings and dusk. This is a safe dive site, even for those doing their beginner course. The current is mild to none.

Tulamben Drop Off Wall

Tulamben Wall

Mostly known as Drop Off by the locals, this reef is the second most visited after the Liberty Wreck. Sitting just at the end of the bay is a series of rocky outcroppings that form a wall starting at 1 metre and descending to 50 metres. Overhanging rocks with large coral growth and large schools of fishes characterize this dive site. Big fish visit this reef site so don’t forget to look into the blue during your dive! A favorite spot for many, you will see many beginners doing their open water or discovery scuba courses in the shallows near the shore.

Coral Garden

Coral Garden

This reef lies between Liberty Wreck and Tulamben Wall. It's a shallow reef close to shore starting from 2 metres to 15 metres and is known for the statues and stone carvings scattered throughout the reef. The reef runs parallel to the shore at the edge of a deep, sandy slope where you can find a plethora of macro life. This relatively small area hosts a rich biodiversity of micro and macro organisms along with hard and soft corals. Most notably, blue ribbon eels have made their home here.

Pygmy Seahorse

Batu Kelebit & Alam Anda

A short 10 minute boat ride brings you to these twin reef sites situation at the end of Tulamben Wall. Large groups of corals have formed at about 20 to 30 metres on a sandy bottom. The reefs here are not visited as often as the more popular shore entry sites which have encouraged rare and shy creatures like the pygmy seahorse to claim this area as their home. This dive site is known for it's fantastic visibility and impressive coral structures.
