A large variety of divers populate the Tulamben beach. Normally their origin is easily distinguishable from their habits.

1) The Japanese: responsible of the presence of the wreck (a Japanese submarine torpedoed the ship), they don’t seem to regret it. They always have colourful wetsuits: red, yellow, orange or white are the dominant colours. Quite commonly they have funny hoods with devils, dragon’s tail or dog’s ears.

2) The Indonesians: Since diving is becoming a popular activity in Indonesia, many divers coming from all the country want to dive the USS Liberty wreck. Normally they have shiny new equipment, huge underwater cameras, the top-end model of every piece.

3) The Singaporeans: Technology-geeks, normally they bring their latest-model underwater cameras even under the shower. New iPhone underwater housings allow them to share their pictures on Facebook directly from the surface of the sea. Cool lah?

4) The Russians: They don’t care about the wreck. They just want to see sharks, possibly aggressive. Don’t try to tell them they can see a pygmy seahorse, unless you are ready to swear that last week that pygmy seahorse almost killed one of your friends.

5) The Americans: “Really, I can’t pay for this t-shirt on the beach with my credit card?”

6) The Italians: Doesn’t matter what, they have to appear cool. Wearing colourful wetsuits is absolutely not an option; it doesn’t match with the fins. Normally they like the wreck, but they are even more interested in where they can have a good lunch.

7) The French: Easily distinguishable because they’re complaining about something. Mainly because they’re wearing socks instead of boots and rocks on the beach are painful. But they always find something to complain about.
