Did two dives at the famed USAT Liberty Wreck in Bali, Indonesia last month. I’m a little jealous of the fact that the locals have easy access to one of the most beautiful wreck dives in modern history. A shore entry from the resort and a few meters down leads you to this humongous America cargo vessel that was sunk by a torpedo during WWII. There were no casualties as the ship was already parked. Years of current drifted this wreck to the nearby shore.
Since I don’t have a Vimeo+ subscription, I’d rather you click on this link to watch the same movie in 720p. Vimeo doesn’t allow hi-res embedding for free users.
This wreck is teeming with life, from amazing barrel corals and sea fans to a menagerie of marine life including a great barracuda which I didn’t have the guts to approach. I had heard from others that schooling jacks and bumpheads made this place home but I was not able to find them in these two dives.
