Bali Diving

Tulamben Diving

Tulamben was a very anonymous fishing village in the dry lands of Karangasem for a very long period. Nowadays, it’s the busiest diving destination in Bali. Since the discovery of the USS Liberty as a diving destination back in the 1980’ies, Tulamben has been drawing bigger and bigger crowds, all wanting to take a glimp at the USS Liberty. Tulamben can get very crowded during high season and it’s easy to see why. But the bay and surrounding villages have a lot more to offer than just the USS Liberty and can provide days of awesome diving!

USS Liberty Shipwreck
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: None
Depth: 10 - 30 meters
This is the most famous dive site in Bali. The USS Liberty Shipwreck is a 120 meter long shipwreck just 50 meters off the shore in Tulamben. It lies between 10 and 30 meters, with a small part a bit more shallow. This dive site has everything for everyone. It is the easiest wreck dive in the world. The Liberty is covered with coral and has an abundance of fish life around it. It has a few nice swim throughs and for macro lovers there are Nudebranches, Ghostpipe fish, Frog Fish and from time to time Pygmy Seahorses. For the early birds or the Night dive lovers, a school of Bumphead Parrot Fish uses the wreck as their private bedroom.

Coral Garden
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: Mild
Depth: 5 - 15 meters
Shallow reef dive right next to USS Liberty Shipwreck. Good for macro photography and relaxed diving. Just hang out around 5-10 meters and keep your eyes open for Nudebranches, Ribbon Eels and beautiful shrimps. Two Giant Sweetlips are seen quite often hanging out in the shallows.

Drop Off
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: Mild
Depth: 10 - 40 meters
Wall dive at the end of Tulamben bay. The wall drops to about 70 meters near the end. You just follow the wall and take the same way back. You might encounter Black Tip Reef Shark, Barracuda, Lionfish and if you have great eyes you might find Frogfish, Octopus or Stonefish.

Alamanda
Type: Boat Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: None
Depth: 10 - 30 meters
Just a 5 minute boat ride from the Drop off, is Alamanda. Alamanda offers a beautifully covered, coral slope, holding a lot of treasures. Expect to find a lot of Macro life with the occasional Shark, Bumphead Parrotfish or Napoleon Wrasse.

Seraya
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: None
Depth: 5 - 20 meters
The dive sites of Seraya are famous for muck diving. Over the years, several dive sites make up Seraya and they all offer similar diving. Black sand, small patches of corals and Critters. Lots of them. In all colors and shapes. Things we have spotted here: Leptocaephalus, Boxer Shrimp, Harlequin Shrimp, Ambon Scorpion Fish, Mimic Octopus, stargazers, Dragonet, … During the right time of the year, this site is the Macro lovers heaven!

Kubu Monkey reef
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: Mild
Depth: 5 - 30 meters
Kubu is a little town just 5 minutes from Tulamben but is quickly making a name for itself as a new diving destination. Monkey reef is a beautiful coral reef, similar to what is to be found in Amed. It’s a good alternative if Tulamben gets way too crowded and you want to do a nice, relaxing dive without hundreds of divers around. Expect a nice, gentle reef with all the usual (and unusual) critters.

Kubu Shipwreck ‘Boga’
Type: Shore Dive
Level: All Levels
Current: Mild
Depth: 10 - 30 meters
The Boga is a brand new dive site. In September 2012, the Boga was sunk just off the coast of Kubu, about 5 min away from the USS Liberty. The 85m long vessel lays between 18 and 30m, so it’s a wreck only accessible for people holding and Advanced certification. No real coral growth on the wreck yet, but the many Buddhist statues, the car and many other details make this a very interesting, fun new dive site. Just keep track of your no deco time.

PadangBay Diving

Must do Scuba Diving Dive Sites in Padangbai Bali
Padangbai in Bali is a diving jewel and any scuba diver who comes to this small fishing village will never leave disappointed. Scuba diving and snorkelling in Padangbai is some of the best around Bali. We have several good dive sites literally just few minutes away from our dive-shop. Most of them are perfect for beginners and diving courses. But of course we have also more challenging diving sites for experienced divers. Currents on those dive spots are very attractive for white and black tip reef sharks, various rays, lots of Pelagic fish and big schools of red tooth trigger fish and jack fish. But it is not only the big fish which make Padangbai such an attractive place for scuba divers. We have here one of the most amazing macro spots Bali can offer.

In Padangbai you can find leaf scorpion fish, robust and ornate ghost pipe fish, pygmy sea horse, many rare nudibranchs, frogfish, spanish dancers, stone fish, rhinopias, cat, nurse, lemon and wobbegong sharks, pipe fish, juvenile bat fish, cattle fish, dragonet fish, sea moth, seahorses and much much more.


So what are the “must do” dive divesites in Padangbai Bali?

Blue Lagoon
When you scuba dive in Blue Lagoon you will start with a great view over the white sand beach of the coast. This white sand beach and the shallow clear blue waters is what makes this such an excellent site for both snorkelers and divers. Underwater you will encounter big healthy coral bommies teaming with life and great diversity of both hard and soft corals. There are many options on how the dive can be lead depending on what your interests are. If you head just a little north you will find a stretch of wall going as deep as 30m, overgrown mainly with soft corals and covered with plenty of hanging feather sea stars. On a day with good visibility you will just love this place. The gorgeous view combined with the amazing variety of marine species that inhabit this area is just unforgettable. If you decide to go the opposite direction away from the wall you will face a great coral acropora which continues with big bommies and gardens of table and soft coral. In the deeper parts of Blue Lagoon (18m) we have coral blocks which serve like cleaning stations for many types of fish and the life around them is always plentiful. While diving in Blue Lagoon in Padangbai, Bali you may see white tip and black tip reef shark, turtles, cuttle fish, frog fish, robust and ornate ghost pipe fish, frogfish, moray eels, garden eels, many families of puffer fish, porcupine fish, pipe fish, clown fish, banner fish, angel fish and so much of other reef fish.


 

Shark Point or Pura Kecil
This is probably the best dive site I know on Bali where you can spot white tip reef sharks on nearly every dive and when I say nearly I mean it. In all the years diving with OK Divers in Padangbai Bali it was usually only bad conditions which stop us from seeing them but is not only sharks which this stunning dive-site has to offer. Great volcanic rock underwater formations covered with soft and hard coral creates a really amazing scene full of marine life. On a most days you just don't want your dive to be finished. There are superb swim through tunnels, big coral bommies, fields of soft coral fighting for its place with big table corals and above all, there are plenty of fish. While Scuba diving with OK Divers we very often see nice schools of jack fish, banner fish, red tooth trigger fish, trevallys, napoleons, turtles, cuttle fish, lots and lots of types reef fish and of course the sharks. If you're lucky it may be white and black tips as well wobbegong, nurse or bamboo sharks and this is not even everything. In a good season even a mola mola may come along, this year we had here even a whale shark, eagle rays also like Pura Kecil point very much and if you do not really care for big fish, I am sure that macro species over here won’t leave you disappointed as well.

Jetty
Jetty is our most recently discovered dive site in Padangbai. The Jetty was built as docking station for big Cruise ships but because its short length it was never used as such. In the 5 years of its existence the pilers have been covered by predominately soft coral which has created a paradise for juvenile fish. The clouds of them are sometimes so plentiful that they block the sun out and you have to wave your hand in front of you so you are able to see at least meter or so. It is just amazing to scuba dive over there. Now where there are juvenile fish there are lots of predators and I’m not talking about sharks or dolphins although Jetty is one of the places OK Divers have seen them hunting underwater. Jetty is just full of small hunters, hunters like frogfish, scorpion fish, leaf scorpion fish, wasp fish, rhinopias, mantis shrimps, cuttle fish, sepias, octopus are just to name a few. Jetty is one of the few places in Padangbai where we have seen a hairy and shaggy frog fish, blue ring octopus, mimic octopus, lacey rhinopia, solar nudibranch and many more thing we sometimes can not even identify. Jetty in Padangbai is locally a very popular fishing spot and folks like to fish there very much. Underwater there is quite a lot of debris, from it though the fish many times take this rubbish as their shelter and it doesn’t seem to bother them much.

Amed Diving

Amed has remained a small village in the northeast coastal region of Bali, with dry volcanic rock ridges along its coastline. It is about 10 km south of Tulamben Bay, at Culik regency; there is Cemeluk Bay with black volcanic sandy beach offers two diving sites, Uyah Reef and Cemeluk Reef. Beyond this bay further east some more diving points Bunutan Reef and Lipah Reef, Bali’s eastern most point. Diving Amed is amazing, not many people go there for diving which is a shame as its as beautiful as the other diving locations in Bali, like Tulamben and Padang Bai, Diving Amed is a easy dive site for all levels and ages. when Diving Amed you can either dive from the shore right outside the dive shop or jump on a small junkung and about 5-10 minuets be at the other beautiful dive sites.


Amed Bay
This bay is situated at the eastern tip of Bali, to dive in this bay is more convenient from a small outrigger boat provided by local fishermen, the reef ridges spurs out into the bay and the current from Lombok strait can pick up making it difficult swimming back to the bay. In the bay lies a small Japanese freighter ship, 12 meters long sits at 6 to 12 meters water. The history behind this ship was unknown. Black corals, colourful soft corals and Gorgonians have grown well on this ship and attract variety of reef fishes to its shelter. Bommies at 10 meters on the reef slopes are covered with gorgeous bushy Gorgonians and soft corals, good numbers of reef fishes, then the reef runs away down the slope out of the bay over 30 meters deep. Schools of Jack and Blue Fin Trevally are often encountered in this site. In the bay at slope sandy bottom is good place to see unusual animals, like Shrimps, Ghost pipefish, Dragonet fish, Sand Diver fish, Gobies, Devil scorpion and others. Water temperature is roughly 29 degrees C. It can be lower if up currents affect the dive site. When strong wind blows from southeast the wave will swirl the sandy bottom and cause the visibility to blur, mostly the clarity is good

 


Jetty Cliff
From Cemeluk Bay it takes 30 minutes on outrigger local fishing boat to the jetty cliff at Bunutan village, off shore is a huge flat white sand bottom at the depth of 10 meters, gradually descending to 18 meters. Large numbers of graceful Garden Eels jutting out from the sand, with good clarity and sunlight they look absolutely breathtaking. The extending reef ridges are the outmost tips of Bali; spreading out from Garden Eels on the steep slope to the maximum depth of 35 meters is gorgeous and healthy reef with variety of macro sea life and large pelagic fish. Huge barrel sponges and Gorgonians dominated this reef; in a single sponge you can find sheltering a number of Lionfish, Shrimps, Worms, Nudibranch and other varieties of macro sea life. Due to the reef depths a close eye needs to be kept on your dive computer. The current from the Lombok strait can sometimes affect planned dives here. Water temperature is normally around 28 degrees C but the up currents can drop the water temperature.

 
The Pyramids
The small outrigger fishing boat powered by outboard engine will take 6 minutes to this reef. Before the El-Nino 1988 bleached the reef in bay, it was the glory time, colourful soft corals, bushy Gorgonians and Staghorn Acropora are spreading all over the reef, and was as the best place for snorkelers. Out from the reef in the bay is a stretch of gorgeous jagged reef wall where schools of Blue Fin Trevally, Black and Humpback Snappers, large pelagic also visits this reef, Shark, Napoleon Wrasse and swarm others reef fish. The edge of reef wall begins at 15 meters, sheer reef wall over 45 meters deep and some bommies spur into bay are interesting with macro critters, Scorpion fish, Nudibranch and a like. The current flows mainly mild with good water clarity and water temperature is always warm 28 to 29 degrees C.

 
Gili Selang
It takes 15 minutes on a small local outrigger fishing boat, with maximum capacity of 5 persons on board to reach these reefs. The reef in the shallows is not worth to dive, rubble outcrop was seriously damaged by the El-Nino in 1988, but at the steep slope and the deep jagged wall is still in excellent condition, from 15 meters to over 50 meters is charming colourful reef wall. A variety of reef fish from small to large pelagic, White Tip Reef Sharks, graceful Banner Fish, Black Snappers, Humpback Snappers and a lot more are commonly seen. Some divers have reported schools of Bumphead Parrotfish swimming across the shallow reef flats. The current is average to mild running toward the bay and water temperature is always warm.

Lembongan Diving

HIGHLIGHTS OF DIVING NUSA LEMBONGAN
- Nusa Lembongan is an island about 30mins off the south-east of Bali, and so is really easy to get to. It is part of a group of three islands that offer some great diving, the other two islands being Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan.

- Manta Rays! With Manta rays inhabiting the waters around the islands of Nusa Penida all year round, divers have a high chance to dive with these large graceful creatures. The two manta dive sites offer diver the chance to witness manta rays feeding or being cleaned by common reef fish.

- Mola-mola! During the season between the months of July to October, Mola Ramsayi (Oceanic Sunfish) are quite a common sight. Typically found between 18 – 30 meters, these strange creatures come up from the deeper waters with the cold currents (18 – 24 degrees) to be cleaned at the dive sites around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan.

- A tropical island dive resort, located only a minutes walk from the beach, where our custom built dive boats are waiting, loaded and ready to bring you the local dive sites which are only 10 – 45 minutes away.

- With a coral coverage of 74% at 10 meters deep, the long stretching fringing reefs that run along the full north coast of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, provide plenty of colourful hard and soft corals to see for all levels of divers.

- A large majority of the dive sites in the area are drift dives. This means we check to see which way the current is going and we just gently go with the flow.

Tulamben Diving

Tulamben was a very anonymous fishing village in the dry lands of Karangasem for a very long period. Nowadays, it’s the busiest diving destination in Bali. Since the discovery of the USS Liberty as a diving destination back in the 1980’ies, Tulamben has been drawing bigger and bigger crowds, all wanting to take a glimp at the USS Liberty. Tulamben can get very crowded during high season and it’s easy to see why. But the bay and surrounding villages have a lot more to offer than just the USS Liberty and can provide days of awesome diving!

PadangBay Diving

Must do Scuba Diving Dive Sites in Padangbai Bali
Padangbai in Bali is a diving jewel and any scuba diver who comes to this small fishing village will never leave disappointed. Scuba diving and snorkelling in Padangbai is some of the best around Bali. We have several good dive sites literally just few minutes away from our dive-shop. Most of them are perfect for beginners and diving courses. But of course we have also more challenging diving sites for experienced divers. Currents on those dive spots are very attractive for white and black tip reef sharks, various rays, lots of Pelagic fish and big schools of red tooth trigger fish and jack fish. But it is not only the big fish which make Padangbai such an attractive place for scuba divers. We have here one of the most amazing macro spots Bali can offer.

In Padangbai you can find leaf scorpion fish, robust and ornate ghost pipe fish, pygmy sea horse, many rare nudibranchs, frogfish, spanish dancers, stone fish, rhinopias, cat, nurse, lemon and wobbegong sharks, pipe fish, juvenile bat fish, cattle fish, dragonet fish, sea moth, seahorses and much much more.


So what are the “must do” dive divesites in Padangbai Bali?

Blue Lagoon
When you scuba dive in Blue Lagoon you will start with a great view over the white sand beach of the coast. This white sand beach and the shallow clear blue waters is what makes this such an excellent site for both snorkelers and divers. Underwater you will encounter big healthy coral bommies teaming with life and great diversity of both hard and soft corals. There are many options on how the dive can be lead depending on what your interests are. If you head just a little north you will find a stretch of wall going as deep as 30m, overgrown mainly with soft corals and covered with plenty of hanging feather sea stars. On a day with good visibility you will just love this place. The gorgeous view combined with the amazing variety of marine species that inhabit this area is just unforgettable. If you decide to go the opposite direction away from the wall you will face a great coral acropora which continues with big bommies and gardens of table and soft coral. In the deeper parts of Blue Lagoon (18m) we have coral blocks which serve like cleaning stations for many types of fish and the life around them is always plentiful. While diving in Blue Lagoon in Padangbai, Bali you may see white tip and black tip reef shark, turtles, cuttle fish, frog fish, robust and ornate ghost pipe fish, frogfish, moray eels, garden eels, many families of puffer fish, porcupine fish, pipe fish, clown fish, banner fish, angel fish and so much of other reef fish.


 

Shark Point or Pura Kecil
This is probably the best dive site I know on Bali where you can spot white tip reef sharks on nearly every dive and when I say nearly I mean it. In all the years diving with OK Divers in Padangbai Bali it was usually only bad conditions which stop us from seeing them but is not only sharks which this stunning dive-site has to offer. Great volcanic rock underwater formations covered with soft and hard coral creates a really amazing scene full of marine life. On a most days you just don't want your dive to be finished. There are superb swim through tunnels, big coral bommies, fields of soft coral fighting for its place with big table corals and above all, there are plenty of fish. While Scuba diving with OK Divers we very often see nice schools of jack fish, banner fish, red tooth trigger fish, trevallys, napoleons, turtles, cuttle fish, lots and lots of types reef fish and of course the sharks. If you're lucky it may be white and black tips as well wobbegong, nurse or bamboo sharks and this is not even everything. In a good season even a mola mola may come along, this year we had here even a whale shark, eagle rays also like Pura Kecil point very much and if you do not really care for big fish, I am sure that macro species over here won’t leave you disappointed as well.

Jetty
Jetty is our most recently discovered dive site in Padangbai. The Jetty was built as docking station for big Cruise ships but because its short length it was never used as such. In the 5 years of its existence the pilers have been covered by predominately soft coral which has created a paradise for juvenile fish. The clouds of them are sometimes so plentiful that they block the sun out and you have to wave your hand in front of you so you are able to see at least meter or so. It is just amazing to scuba dive over there. Now where there are juvenile fish there are lots of predators and I’m not talking about sharks or dolphins although Jetty is one of the places OK Divers have seen them hunting underwater. Jetty is just full of small hunters, hunters like frogfish, scorpion fish, leaf scorpion fish, wasp fish, rhinopias, mantis shrimps, cuttle fish, sepias, octopus are just to name a few. Jetty is one of the few places in Padangbai where we have seen a hairy and shaggy frog fish, blue ring octopus, mimic octopus, lacey rhinopia, solar nudibranch and many more thing we sometimes can not even identify. Jetty in Padangbai is locally a very popular fishing spot and folks like to fish there very much. Underwater there is quite a lot of debris, from it though the fish many times take this rubbish as their shelter and it doesn’t seem to bother them much.

Huge barrel sponges and Gorgonians dominated this reef; in a single sponge you can find sheltering a number of Lionfish, Shrimps, Worms, Nudibranch and other varieties of macro sea life. Due to the reef depths a close eye needs to be kept on your dive computer. The current from the Lombok strait can sometimes affect planned dives here. Water temperature is normally around 28 degrees C but the up currents can drop the water temperature.

 
The Pyramids
The small outrigger fishing boat powered by outboard engine will take 6 minutes to this reef. Before the El-Nino 1988 bleached the reef in bay, it was the glory time, colourful soft corals, bushy Gorgonians and Staghorn Acropora are spreading all over the reef, and was as the best place for snorkelers. Out from the reef in the bay is a stretch of gorgeous jagged reef wall where schools of Blue Fin Trevally, Black and Humpback Snappers, large pelagic also visits this reef, Shark, Napoleon Wrasse and swarm others reef fish. The edge of reef wall begins at 15 meters, sheer reef wall over 45 meters deep and some bommies spur into bay are interesting with macro critters, Scorpion fish, Nudibranch and a like. The current flows mainly mild with good water clarity and water temperature is always warm 28 to 29 degrees C.

 
Gili Selang
It takes 15 minutes on a small local outrigger fishing boat, with maximum capacity of 5 persons on board to reach these reefs. The reef in the shallows is not worth to dive, rubble outcrop was seriously damaged by the El-Nino in 1988, but at the steep slope and the deep jagged wall is still in excellent condition, from 15 meters to over 50 meters is charming colourful reef wall. A variety of reef fish from small to large pelagic, White Tip Reef Sharks, graceful Banner Fish, Black Snappers, Humpback Snappers and a lot more are commonly seen. Some divers have reported schools of Bumphead Parrotfish swimming across the shallow reef flats. The current is average to mild running toward the bay and water temperature is always warm.

Lembongan Diving

HIGHLIGHTS OF DIVING NUSA LEMBONGAN
- Nusa Lembongan is an island about 30mins off the south-east of Bali, and so is really easy to get to. It is part of a group of three islands that offer some great diving, the other two islands being Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan.

- Manta Rays! With Manta rays inhabiting the waters around the islands of Nusa Penida all year round, divers have a high chance to dive with these large graceful creatures. The two manta dive sites offer diver the chance to witness manta rays feeding or being cleaned by common reef fish.

- Mola-mola! During the season between the months of July to October, Mola Ramsayi (Oceanic Sunfish) are quite a common sight. Typically found between 18 – 30 meters, these strange creatures come up from the deeper waters with the cold currents (18 – 24 degrees) to be cleaned at the dive sites around Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan.

- A tropical island dive resort, located only a minutes walk from the beach, where our custom built dive boats are waiting, loaded and ready to bring you the local dive sites which are only 10 – 45 minutes away.

- With a coral coverage of 74% at 10 meters deep, the long stretching fringing reefs that run along the full north coast of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan, provide plenty of colourful hard and soft corals to see for all levels of divers.

- A large majority of the dive sites in the area are drift dives. This means we check to see which way the current is going and we just gently go with the flow.
