The most common dive is shore dive entering from the pebbled beach of Tulamben Bay, which is located right in front of our resort. We also offer packages to visit other nearby dive sites such as BatuKelebit, Alamanda, Emerald, Seraya Secret and Kubu. A traditional outrigger boat called Jukung is used to transport divers to entry points in these dive sites.

LOCAL MARINE LIFE
Due to its location as one of the richest marine bio-geographic zones in the world, Tulamben Bay boasts a vibrant marine life. There are three main dive sites, which are physically distinct from one another and thus house a diverse marine life.
The most famous dive site is the USAT Liberty Wreck, which is one of the most popular and most accessible wreck dives in the world. The wreck is easily accessible by divers of all experience levels as it lies a mere 30 m offshore. Even snorkelers are able to get a glimpse of the wreck as its shallowest part is only 3 metres deep. The walls of the wreck are heavily encrusted in hard and soft corals, gorgonian fans and anemones. Upon entry, you will be greeted by surgeonfish as well as colorful nudibranchs. Barracudas and groups of bumphead parrotfish are also often sighted.
Tulamben Wall, also known as the Drop Off bottoms out at 60-70 metres and hosts larger marine life. If you’re lucky you may spot Reef Sharks, Moray Eels and even Hammerheads. Meanwhile, along the coral encrusted wall, you will see various octopus, crabs and shrimps.
House Reef or Coral Garden runs for approximately 150 m along the beach, in front of the resort. Its shallow depth of 3 to 12 m is popular for snorkeling as well as extended night dives. Various nocturnal feeders and hunters have often been sighted here. The reef is a paradise for tropical fishes such as anemones (Nemo), ribbon eels and scorpion fish.
