Staying in Sanur / Kuta / Seminyak?
We can run day-trips on request from Sanur / Kuta / Seminyak. Tulamben is a 2 hour drive from Sanur so we start bright and early. We pick you up from your hotel around 7am in order to reach our dive centre in Amed around 9.00-9.30AM.
After checking in at the centre and enjoying a quick coffee we drive a further 20 minutes to Tulamben. The amazing porters of Tulamben will carry our gear from the car to the pebble beach, and our helpful guides will set up your equipment ready for the first dive. The first dive site would usually be the Liberty Shipwreck, just a short walk from where your gear is set up and entry is from the shore.
Once we finish our first dive we have lunch in a beach side cafe where you can choose from Indonesian and Western meals along with water and a soft drink, vegetarian options are also available.
After a short rest we jump back in for our second dive which will be either the Drop off; Coral Garden or Seraya Secrets, although many guests also choose to do a second dive at the Liberty! After the last dive we head back to Amed where you can come back and relax at our center with a cup of tea or coffee or maybe a beer whilst you log your dives of the day and share your dive memories with your guide and the other divers around.
When you’re ready we’ll drop you back off at your hotel/resort in the south.
The famous Liberty is a shipwreck for any diver level from an Open water or a Discover scuba diver to an advanced diver who has hundreds of dives logged. Snappers, Groupers, Barracuda, and occasional visits from Black tip reef sharks are some of the bigger things at the wreck, if you are interested in macro the wreck has Ghost Pipefish, Nudibranchs, Leaf fish and tones of other little critters. With great coral colour and normally good visibility and light the Liberty makes for an excellent photography dive. We normally dive the Liberty first thing in the morning before the crowds arrive from Sanur and Kuta.
Definitely one for the macro enthusiast or photographers this black sand slope has scatter patches of reef and sponge hiding superb macro life. Nudibranchs, multiple species of ghost pipefish, pygmy cuttlefish, frogfish, boxer crabs, seahorses… the list goes on and on. Black sand diving at it’s best.
The Drop off can be quite an exciting dive with Black-tip Reef Sharks, Groupers, Stingrays and other marine life. It makes for a great wall dive as well a bit of a drift depending on the currents. There is also a chance of seeing Mantas but these are just visitors who pass by now and then.
A steep lava wall covered in corals leads down to a black sand slope at this site between Tulamben and Amed. Black coral and Barrel Sponges abound, with frogfish, nudibranchs, and other critters hiding amongst the reef. Keep an eye out in the blue though as large pelagics occasionally pass the point.
The Coral Garden at Tulamben is a site that is bursting with life, yet another site that is great for photography. Scorpionfish, Ribbon Eels, colonies of anemones with their resident clown fish along with giant Bumphead Parrotfish and passing Blacktip Reef Sharks are a few of the things that you can see here. An artificial reef has also been created here which comprises of a mix of various Balinese statues all of which attract a lot of life to the reef and makes for a great photo opportunity with your buddy.
