Tulamben Bay, like the rest of Bali, is situated in the richest marine bio geographic zone in the world. Being on the north east coast, the bay receives very plankton-rich waters from the major ocean current that moves from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. This, coupled with the fact that the three main dive sites provide totally different physical environments, mean that Tulamben contains a stunningly diverse underwater ecosystem.

Kubu Shipwreck ‘Boga’

The Boga is a brand new dive site. In September 2012, the Boga was sunk just off the coast of Kubu, about 5 min away from the USS Liberty. The 85m long vessel lays between 18 and 30m, so it’s a wreck only accessible for people holding and Advanced certification. No real coral growth on the wreck yet, but the many Buddhist statues, the car and many other details make this a very interesting, fun new dive site. Just keep track of your no deco time.
