Wreck Diving in Bali

We are very lucky to have some great wrecks here in Bali which we like to use for many different levels of training from your deeps scenario for the PADI Divemaster course to completing decompression stops on your PADI Technical diving internships.

The USAT Liberty Ship was a United States Army cargo ship torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in January 1942 and was beached in tulamben. In 1963 mount agung erupted and moved the ship off the beach and down a shallow slope turning it into one of balis most popular dive sites.




We love to visit this site as with the fantastic open overhangs, it makes for an amazing play ground during a PADI Sidemount course and we love returning at night during our PADI Master Scuba Diver Training course during our IDC internships. We also encourage our divers during our IDC trip to visit this wreck at dawn as it is a hot spot for bump head parrot fish in large numbers!

As this is such a spread out wreck to explore many of our PADI Divemasters have enjoyed mapping this wreck and finding some of the hidden treasures this wreck has to explore!

The Kubu Wreck was sunk in 2011 to form an artificial reef for divers to explore. This wreck has slowly been slipping down the bank as originally it sat at 30 meters and now is slipping a bit deeper. We love to visit this wreck during the PADI Wreck Diving course as the wreck is a fantastic place to practice wreck penetration in the large open rooms that this wreck has to offer. For those of you who want to seek a bit more advanced training during Our PADI Technical diving course we explore the deep reef sitting behind the wreck and enjoy. The deep reef is often visited by sharks and eagle rays making for a very exciting dive to 50 meters and you can enjoy the wreck appearing in the distance like a ghost ship while we surface up slowly to it to complete our decompression.

Should you be looking to explore some historic wrecks or explore new limits while progressing with your dive career Bali has some great wreck to help you achieve your goals as a diver!
