Tulamben

Ambat bay

We left Lembongan Friday morning heading for Tulamben on the north cost of Bali. Tulamben is the most popular dive spot in Bali. Because of an old wreck from the first ww called Liberty.
It took us a good part of the day to get there. In the start we had a 4-5 knot current on the nose. On this side of Bali every beach is full of sailing canoes that are used for fishing. We also saw a lot of them heading out to sea.
Getting there we anchored near the wreck but was soon told to move. We went to the nearby Ambat bay and anchored there. Here we soon found Bali Dive Resort where we had a nice dinner. We had a wet trip back to the boat when negotiating the surf.

Saturday morning we took the Dinghy over to the wreck for some snorkeling. We went early to avoid the rush. Getting there we realized tha everybody had the same idea. There was more than 20 divers in the water making bubbles. There was lots of curious fish around the wreck. We also did some drift snorkeling along the coral garden.In all we were not that impressed. Have been to many better places in Indonesia.

About noon we raised the anchor to sail to Kangean island.
