In September 2019 our son (who is studying in Japan) went home for a holiday. It was a very touching moment for me because for the first time we dived together as a family 😍.
Not like us who are certified as divers by PADI, my son have no diving license yet, so for safety reason we chose “discover scuba diving” for him (a master dive guided him specially & max deep is only 10 meters).
The wreck lies in shallow water and is considered appropriate for divers of all certification levels. The ship rests in 30 metres of water, is roughly 25 metres from shore and can be reached with a short swim from the beach.
The ship was torpedoed by the Japanese off the nearby Island of Lombok in 1942 and the ship was towed to the beach at Tulamben for salvage operations.
The 1963 eruption of Mt. Agung, which devastated much of the eastern side of Bali, drove the ship into the water just off shore, where it became encrusted with coral and a home to other sea life.
