The Liberty lies on a black sand slope, almost parallel to the beach and is approximately 30 m offshore. This dive site is suitable for all levels of qualification and experience. The wreck lies in depths from 9-30 m; the shallowest part of the wreck, where it touches the sand slope, is at 5-10 m. Depth along the middle of the wreck is 16-20 m. The lower edge of the wreck, i.e. furthest down the slope, is 20-28 m (at high tide). The wreck is 120 m long, itís pretty broken up (i.e. no penetration possible) but you can still see the guns, toilets, boilers, anchor chain, etc.

Great Diving, we went there with BMS (Bali Marine Sports). Stays at Tulamben. About 3hr drive from Denpasar (airport). BMS took care the transportation & accommodation. Awesome night dive, wreck dive, morning dive. Best wreck dive in Bali.

Agree that the night dive is sensational. Early morning high-tide dives before the day-trippers arrive is great as well. This ship is not the USS Liberty - correctly it is the USAT Liberty-Glo.

as we stayed in Tulamben our dive guide knew when to go and we were always alone on the wreck. The night dive is awsome. Great place

Best wreck I ever dived. Took more than 1.000 pictures in a week. Every dive I discovered new species I never saw before. And when you think you know your way on the way, try a nightdive!

I dove with Made Suwena, PADI Instructor for several time in this place. We always find something new here. Good dive could be early morning or late afternoon.. bit quite from daily trippers but awesome

Lots of fish, if you are lucky some bumphead parrotfishes pass the wreck. Go early in the morning, later lots of divers from all over Bali are diving on the wreck

Aquamarine said it was wavey last week making exits and entries difficult but it was fine when we dived there. You could dive the wreck a hundred times and always see something different. We didn't want to dive there because its so heavily promoted but very, very glad we did.
