Tulamben, 2016 August 8th, first dive: Liberty Wreck

The USAT Liberty is one of the most famous wrecks in Asia, a WWII US transporter disabled by a Japanese Torpedo and finally sunk by an Earthquake in 1963.
It’s the most famous dive destination in Bali and therefore very, very busy. People come here from all over Bali. Since it’s a couple of hours drive away from Denpasar and other major tourist centers, most people arrive here after 10:00 in the morning. So people staying in the area of Tulamben have the chance for a bit more quiet dive early after sunrise. So we went out there at 6:30 in the morning and were not disappointed. Despite the divesite being so busy every day we found our first Pygmy sea horse of this trip along with leafy scorpionfish and of course the magnificent view of this massive wreck.
