Let me warn you: before you can enjoy snorkeling you will experience a very long drive. First they pick you up at your hotel in an old worn out bus without safety belts in the back and drive you to Bali Diving headquarter. There you have to check in first and sign some papers. Then they re-group and off you go in another bad old bus without safety belts and bad AC. The drive to Amed last 2.5 hours (one way). After snorkeling they drive you back to headquarter first and then to your hotel. So, we've spent 7h in the car and 3h with snorkeling and in the restaurant. Don't get me wrong: the guys from Bali Diving are super nice and what we saw under water was fantastic.
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.
Wow what an experience! Straight to the point...snorkeling, snorkeling, snorkeling! Spent at least 2.5 hours in the water.
as someone who can't swim , to be given the chance to see "what's out there" was amazing
