Scuba Diving out of Tulamben, Bali

The underwater world is truly amazing. So far, besides 2 dives off Tunnels Beach in Hawaii, I’ve done purely boat dives. And I thought this will continue here in Bali as well. But no, I had shore dives again and again – some amazing scuba sites are all with entrance points in walking distance from the dive shop. The gear is transported either with scooters (of course, everything gets transported on motorbikes in Asia) or women carry the gear on their heads (absolutely unbelievable for me). So, we – I had a private scuba guide – just walked over to the entrance point and off we go.

I rented an underwater camera. So, for the first time in scuba career of, well 15 years and around 150 dives, I was able to take some photos of that amazing world under water – which I got completely hooked on after my first real dive on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia so many years ago.

Scuba diving in Bali was wonderful. So much to see. So many fish, coral and other underwater creatures. But have a look for yourself (but keep in mind, I don’t think that those pictures do the underwater beauty justice) …
