The Liberty is Bali's best-known (and most popular) wreck. It is located in Tulamben, near Amed, on the northeastern coast of the island.

Atmosphere diving

The dives on this enormous freighter are full of atmosphere. Here is a small underwater video, to give you a little atmosphere of this exceptional site.


You often come across a huge school of jacks and sometimes a big solitary barracuda...with the patibular mine. Not to mention the pygmy seahorses! In the video, we see my guide Kadek inspecting a gorgonian seahorse to find one for us.

The wreck is so vast, so rich in fauna, that you can go back several times without getting bored! For underwater bug lovers, I will post in a few days time new photos.

Good plan for accommodation and diving in Tulamben

July 2012. Small addition: I have been back to Bali several times since 2008, and I dived again on the fabulous wreck of the Libertybut with a guide for me alone and at the right time (when it's less crowded)... I point out this really good map of a diving resort, which is also an excellent address, especially if you are a sub photographer, and you want to discover the wreck in the best possible conditions:

  1. Thank you, Laurence.

    Obviously, the video mode of my little digital camera does not do justice to the imposing dimensions of the wreck. When we arrive on it, during the first dive, it's really impressive to sweep this gigantic thing that's teeming with life.
    😯 😮

    The barracuda, encountered in less than ten meters of water, right next to the rear part of the wreck, was not too fierce. I was able to film it fairly closely. I cut a lot in the original sequence and kept only a few seconds for this small editing. But he stayed there for a long time, staring at me, mouth open on his ugly teeth.
    😡 😀
