Bali Dive Sites: Tulamben Seraya Slope
Muck Dive Site – Tulamben Seraya Slope
Tulamben Seraya Slope
As well as the main, central site called ‘Seraya’, named for a nearby resort, this small area also encompasses various individual muck sites. As with all the Tulamben Area dive sites, these muck diving sites have a black sand bottom and little coral growth.
It is a little difficult to write about several similar sites under one heading so, if you are interested in diving ‘Seraya’; we suggest you ask AquaMarine to include it in your Underwater Macro Dive Safari and then discuss with your guide face-to-face which sites would be most suitable based on your wishlist.
Menu of Species at Tulamben Seraya Slope
The macro life includes a wide range of shrimps (including Harlequin, Anemone, Tiger, Coleman, Coral), ghostpipefish, crabs including Zebra, Boxer and Decorator, Mimic octopus, nudis including (with an AMD-B spotter guide!) even the Donut Doto nudi!
There are some very picturesque cleaning stations with crinoids dotted around, moray eels, Cleaner wrasse and a variety of Cleaner shrimp, angelfish, groupers, sweetlips and similar.
Around dusk, as you scan the sand for photo opportunities, try to remember to look up – the number of batfish that simply hang, unmoving, in mid-water above you is quite extraordinary!
