Full description
Begin this 10-hour tour with a drive to the village of Tulamben, best known for its black sand beach covered with smooth, fist-size rocks.

Located just 30 meters from the beach, the USAT Liberty shipwreck measures 120 meters, with its top just 3 meters below the water surface. Struck by torpedoes in 1942, the ship was carrying rubber and railroad parts across the Lombok Strait.

Explore the wreck that is now covered by coral and home to hundreds of species of fish. Expect to see blue-spotted stingrays, octopus, scorpion fish, sweet lips, triggerfish, moray eels and more.

Porters will carry your equipment, and a complimentary lunch will be served between your snorkeling sessions.

Shipwreck was amazing

It was an incredibly long 2.5 hour drive (each way) from Sanur just to snorkel for 40-50 minutes (2 x 20 minutes approximately) but worth it if you really want to see a shipwreck (it was on my bucket list so we did it). lunch was hot and good and thank goodness for car air conditioning. Beautiful scenery on the drive and the water at tulamben was choppy on the surface but you could see the whole shipwreck, three pieces, without struggling too much with current. Very suitable for new snorkellers or those looking for an interesting sea view with tons of fish.
