Snorkeling in Tulamben
Unlike other places for snorkeling Tulamben offers unique underwater scenery visible from the surface: The USAT Liberty ship wreck. The ship has been sunken for more than 40 years making it a number one scuba diving destination in Bali. The Wreck can be seen easily from the surafce, in the water the Wreck sits from about 3m all the way down to 28m and on a good clear day you can see the deeper parts of this wreck.
After swimming for about 20 meter off shore snorkelers will start seeing part of the ship now a dwelling place for marine life. A snorkeling-guide will assist you during this time not only to make sure you know where the wreck is but also to accompany you in case you are a single snorkeler.
