Scuba Diving in Bali, Indonesia
Dive Site: Anchor Wreck
Location: Bali, Indonesia
Depth: 6 - 33 metres (20 - 110 feet)
Visibility: 15 - 30 metres (50 - 100 feet)
The Anchor Wreck is a small wooden boat and no one knows its original name or what brought it to the area. Dive guides have always called it the Anchor Wreck, simply because of the large, encrusted anchor that still lies about 6 to 8 metres from the surface. Once under the water, the wreck is quite easy to find. Follow the anchor chain down the steep, terraced slope to 33 metres where the coral yields to sand. At the base of the slope a second anchor is encrusted in coral and the first few timbers of the wreck are dark against the white sand. Sheets of copper and brown ceramic bottles (part of the ships, cargo) lie in piles and there are still some parts of wreckage emerging out of the sand, covered in gorgonians. After exploring the wreck follow the wall and overhangs to the west at 6 - 10 metres, an ideal place for an extended safety stop.
