nautilus lifeline gps funkgeraet

We are proud to introduce our new safety feature for all our boat diving trips: The Nautilus Lifeline. What is a Nautilus Lifeline? This are small waterproof Radios which Divers can bring on the dive. They are easy to handle. Just press a button and talk.
As all of our boats are equipped with radio, we can immediately contact the boat after surfacing and minimize the chance to drift away. This solves usually already all diver get lost situations. But in the unlikely event this fails, in addition with the Lifeline we can contact directly the harbor master and coastguard so we don’t get any delay in triggering the chain of survival in case of an emergency. And if all else fails the Lifeline can make an distress call with GPS data to all surrounding commercial ships and airplanes also. But of course, we hope we never need these things.

As the first company in Bali which use Nautilus Lifelines, we have set some new standards in the Indonesian dive industry.Safety should always be number 1 !!!

Dive sites in Tulamben - Bali


Liberty Wreck Bali
Tulamben Wreck is situated directly near the beach on Bali's northeast coast. The 120m long wreck rests in a 90 degree angle with the deck facing the sea side and used to be an American supply ship named „USA Liberty". Anchored off the coast of Lombok, the ship was hit by a Japanese torpedo during World War II. Miraculously nobody got hurt, but the damage turned the ship into a non-functioning and useless hull. The American Navy's plan to tow the ship to Singaraja harbor (north Bali) failed as the harbor was completely occupied, so the ship was intentionally stranded on the rocky beach of Tulamben, where it was unloaded. In 1963 the volcano Agung erupted and the magma flow pressed the ship back into the sea where it presently rests at a depth of 3 to 29 meters. Since then, coral covered the wreckage completely and turned it into a home for many species of fish. From time to time, a Napoleon fish or huge barracuda drops by. You may dive or snorkel this wreck comfortably, accessing it directly from the beach.

The Tulamben Wall starts at a depth of 1 m to then drop straight to 40 m. Besides amazing coral growth this reef also features an unbelievable landscape sculpted by many overhanging rocks. The presence of smaller reef fish is abundant, with angel fish being the species worth mentioning. Besides emperor angel fish, yellow-faced angelfish and blue-banded angel fish can be found with the duke fish rounding out the selection as a member of the angel fish family. Quite often, huge schools of jack fish pass the wall, darkening the sun. Although it is a wall, this dive site is also suitable for snorkeling.

The Coral Garden is only about a hundred meters away from our Tauch Terminal Resort Tulamben, which is located directly at the beach. The coral garden starts at a depth of 2-15 m and is wonderfully grown featuring stone- and soft coral alike. Besides numerous species of reef fish, the beautiful blue-yellow ribbon moray eel has found a home here. This dive site is also a superb snorkelling spot with none to moderate current.
Sharks in Bali
Shark Point can be reached via snorkelling close to the wall. The residing sharks are commonly whitetip- and blacktip reef sharks and may rest at a depth of 20 to 30 m in a sandy area. When currents are present, occasionally grey reef sharks and even hammerhead sharks circle the blue. The current may become quite strong here and sometimes cold water might swell up forming thermoclines. Thermoclines may lower the water temperature to 24 degrees for a short period of time. This dive site is not suitable for snorkelling.

Visibility: 15-30 m
Current: none to moderate (shark point to strong)

KUBU is a small village in the neighborhood of Tulamben and just a short 10 minutes drive to the north-west. The Kubu reefs are easily accessible from the rocky lava shore, similar to the dive sites in the Tulamben bay area. The reef starts right off the beach in shallow water about 2 – 3 m deep featuring huge pinnacles of glassfish-covered coral heads. This site is a good snorkeling spot, too. The coral garden leads into a beautiful ridge covered with fields of stag horn coral (Acropora sp.) and some good sized bushes of soft coral (Dendronephthya spp.) which sometimes host rare crustaceans like porcelain crabs and tiny little cowrie snails (Pseudosimnia sp.). Please check for pygmy seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti) on deepwater gorgonian sea fans (Muricella sp.)! Nearly any kind of reef fish is abundant, schooling species like sawtooth barracudas (Sphyraena putnamiae) or large schools of fairy basslets (Pseudoanthias spp.) on the reef flat, but also individuals like large groupers can be seen. A very highlight would be the gorgeous juvenile pinnate batfish (Platax pinnatus) which hides in the dark of crevices and holes. This fish is rarely seen by divers but occasionally, and of course with a bit of luck, we can discover this beautiful animal on the Kubu reefs.
Especially “macro freaks” will like this site since we have discovered many rare species of nudibranches and sea slugs, some of them not yet described (unknown?).
