USAT Liberty, Bali – Indonesia

By : nanda | September 30, 2016

Divers flock from all over to explore the wonders of the USAT Liberty. This U.S military transport ship was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in 1942 and beached in Tulamben, Bali. Fortunately for divers, the seismic activity of a volcanic eruption pushed the USAT Liberty back into the ocean in 1963 . The wreckage now sits in waters 13 to 100 feet deep making it one of the most accessible wrecks in the world for snorkelers and divers. Marvel at schools of barracuda swirling at the surface or the bump head parrotfish taking residence in the engine room. Spot the mast overgrown with soft corals, and observe nudibranchs, parrotfish, gorgonians, octopus, lizard fish, reef sharks, and with good fortune mola-mola and whale sharks. The vivid colors and thriving sea life of the USAT will leave you with warm memories of beauty and tranquility.
