The Dark Past Behind the Glory of Manta Point in Nusa Penida

Posted by Marcko Dastro on

For a memorable underwater experience, diving with manta ray is something that almost every diver dreams about. To be in the tranquil scenery where a gigantic Manta Ray passing gracefully, gently flaps its wing-like fins, conjuring images of underwater ballet. Bali’s sister island, the laid-back Nusa Penida is one of the best place to swim with these gentle giants. The Manta Point in Nusa Penida is a heaven and safe zone for these protected fish.

Dangers Beyond the Safety of Manta Point Nusa Penida 

Manta Ray was not always this lucky. Just about 6 years ago, they were hunted everywhere in Indonesian water, mainly in the southern part of the country where the lands are mostly barren and the people depend on the sea. Manta ray was common in the dinner table of Solok and many other coastal villages of eastern Indonesia—who enjoyed the winged fish as their traditional foods. Fisherman used hunt the manta ray as one single manta would give them three million rupiahs (USD $212). The fishing increased ever since Chinese markets begun to show interest on manta’s gills as alternative medicine even though no study has ever prove it. A single gill would be sold around 150.000 rupiah per kilogram, and that’s enough to push the manta fishing, pushing it beyond customary limits. Fishermans would prioritise Manta Ray over other fishes and as a result, the animal was quickly facing an extinction. 

Manta Protections 

Indonesia started to impose ban on manta ray fishing as the population was rapidly decreasing. Female manta rays can only give birth to one or two pups every two to five years while the the fisherman could catch hundreds every year. If this continue, soon there will be no manta ray around in Indonesia water. Meanwhile, the diving tourism industry were showing a growing interest in manta ray as one of the most-seek animal by divers. The Manta Point in Nusa Penida was one of the leading region in Indonesia to locally protect Manta Ray. Tour operators and fisherman were given education about the Manta and it results on more sighting of this majestic animals. In 2014, the government finally impose Manta Ray bans and set up daily patrols on Manta-dense regions to ensure that there’s no more manta hunts.

Hunting Manta at Manta Point Nusa Penida

The Dark Past Behind the Glory of Manta Point in Nusa Penida

To compare, a single manta ray would be sold around three to six million rupiahs. A living manta a worth at least 400,000 more when let alive in conservation. From economical viewpoint, that’s an easy decision. The Manta Point at Nusa Penida alone house more than 600 manta ray individuals on its water.

Diving from A Boat: Techniques for Beginners

Posted by Marcko Dastro on

When you first learn to dive, the majority of your time will be spent on pool at the scuba centre. This is where you will learn your very first lesson, practising the basics of scuba diving, to having the scuba test for your certification. In places like Bali, your very first open water dive will be conducted on a shore, where you will walk from the descending shore and slowly sink to the ocean. This is actually the most comfort way to start a diving journey for most beginners. However,  diving from a boat—which come naturally for some divers—could be quite blood-tingling for those divers who start their dive from the shore. 

Indeed, the idea of jumping from boat into  the deep water could be quite intimidating compared from wading in from a beach. Diving from a boat requires special skills to maintain your safety. But rest assured. It’s not as hard as you think and before you know, you will be thrilled with anticipation for the next boat jumping.

Diving from A Boat: Techniques for Beginners

Learn the method of water entry before the actual dive. Tell the instructors on the dive boat and they will gladly teach you so. There are three common water entries applicable for diving form boat, even for beginners. The first is giant stride, where you can just step out from the dive boat’s deck and jump to the water. Second is back roll water entry, which is best suited for boats without special platform where divers can jump. Back roll water entry is commonly used on small boats and inflatable boats. To do so, you need to sit at the edge of the boat, put the regulator on your mouth, and hold the back of your head with the right hand. Point your chin towards the chest and you are now ready to gently fall backwards. The last is seated water entry, where you basically pivot your way from the boat to the water. 

Practice the Boat Diving Entry for Beginners!

As water entry is commonly used on dive trips, it’s better if you take sometime to practice it on the pool! Water entry from boat is something to be practiced for diving for beginners. Head to deep pools, get geared up with the tanks, regulators, BCD, and everything, and practice the fall. This will give you better ideas on how you should jump/ fall and how it works on your body.

This is not The Game of Thrones, and it’s definitely not Eragon. In this land, dragons are real—and the last of them is living in the protected land of Komodo National Park. The Varanus Komodoensis, or Komodo Dragons, are gigantic monitor lizards who has live their life for more than 4 million years ago. They are basically prehistoric creatures! These dragons are descendant of the Megalania species, who lived in Australia since 40 millions years ago and just recently went extinct. Don’t take these dragons lightly. They are seriously fierce predators, preying large animals such as water buffalos and deers. These dragons left nothing—swallowing everything down to the last bones. Jurassic and terribly wild, the Komodo Dragons are definitely the main star of the park’s attraction. 

The Komodo lives in Komodo Island and Rinca, which can only be reached by Komodo Liveaboard or speedboat from the mainland Flores. Normally they love to stalk the shores or wandering around   open grassland. They love to sunbathe to help digesting their food! When it comes to the mating season, these dragons love to go deep into the forest to find their soulmate for the next two months. 

The Large Prey: Deers and Water Buffalos

Though they rule like kings, the magnificent Komodo Dragons are not the only resident of the national park. This UNESCO protected land also house deers, horses, water buffalos, Rinca rat, dozens species of birds, and the orange footed scrub fowl! Wait until you feel the almost-magical excitement while you happen to catch an eye contact with wild deers in roaming in their outdoor habitat.

And yes, that included the dolphins. These curious and highly intelligent mammals love to tail passing Komodo liveaboard. You will notice the signs when everyones in the boat are shouting “Lumba Lumba!” Maybe the dolphins just love to say hi!

The Ever Graceful Manta Ray 

A trip to Komodo will never be complete before you meet the graceful Manta Ray. The other giants of Komodo National Park who lives under the sea. They love to be around in Manta Point, Manta’s favourite spot for feeding and cleaning. You could drop down just 10 meters from your liveaboard and find sandy bottoms and high visibility water. This is where Manta Rays frequently pass by. It’s a thrilling experience even for highly seasoned divers! 

See from Komodo Liveaboard: Sunset Fruit Bats!

It’s forbidden to dock on Bat Island (or the Pulau Kalong on local tongue). This mysterious island houses millions of huge fruits bats. Hanging on mangrove branches, deep under the shades of mangrove forest that form half of the island. Get ready in your Komodo liveaboard, which will stop just miles from the island, and wait for a spectacular show. Just as the sky turns into shades of orange-violet, thousands and thousands of fruit bats fly off from their home to Rinca and Flores, in search of dinner. Backdropped by gorgeous sunset sky, the sight of flying bats is gonna be a stunning show that seems like straight of the Nat Geo Wild channel.

Komodo Boat Charter Sailing: Lower the Waste

Posted by Ron Brewer on

The Komodo National Park is vibrant with its raw wilderness, white and pink sandy beaches, auburn savannah, and of course, the prehistoric Komodo dragons. With such beauty, the Komodo is a true magnet to local and international tourists who come to enjoy the world-famous sailing trip around the luscious landscape. But just like any islands with tourism magnet, the KNP has to deal with great amount of waste, too. We all know that we produce more waste than we need, and this lifestyle could easily get loose on a holiday. Especially when you choose to sail with Komodo boat charter.

Komodo Boat Charter Sailing: Lower the Waste

You know, with all the pampering and luxurious comfort. If you are not careful, you can be another careless contributor to the waste pollution in Komodo. Such a great irony to our admiration to the rawness of Komodo’s nature in the first place.

If you love to indulge in Komodo’s perfect landscape and it’s rich marine life beneath, it’s time to practice green travelling on your sailing trip.

Buy Things with As Littlest Packaging As Possible

Oftentimes, being ‘stranded’ in the ocean drives us a little paranoia with what we want to bring onboard. Some of us tend to be over-prepared and end up buy things worth a month of supplies. Think about the packaging of every things you buy—the amount of package waste could really add up onboard. Be mindful and always try to minimise and minimise.

Do Not Arrange Party on Komodo Boat Charter Involving Balloons

One of the reasons why we book the whole Komodo boat charter is to launch a party. While it’s totally fun and acceptable, please avoid any use of balloons of all kinds. They could get easily snap because of the winds and the sun—and the plastic shreds go right to the ocean.

Don’t Buy Individually-Wrapped Snacks

Don’t Buy Individually-Wrapped Snacks

We like to think that individually-wrapped biscuits and candies are more practical to bring anywhere while in fact they are just a bulk of waste. If possible, make your own snacks or buy a bulk and store them in reusable containers.

Neither Buy or Use Travel Size Items—Buy Reusable Containers Instead

Luxury line of Komodo boat usually provides single use toiletries onboard. Don’t use it. By ignoring the complimentary toiletries, you are saving plastic toothbrushes, hair caps, and environmental-damaging soaps and shampoos. Also, buying brand new travel size toiletries is just adding more waste to the bin. Instead, opt for reusable travel-sized containers filled with free paraben, chlorine, SLS, triclosan, and other toxic chemicals ingredients.

Go Easy on Paper Towels

We love to get surrounded by convenience and using too much paper towel is one of those simple luxury. We use it to wipe our toilet businesses, clean our hands before and after meal, remove dirts on tables, or even wiping wet faces from the splashing salt water. Whereas, in many situations, a good old handkerchief could do the job. You couldn’t ask the Komodo boat charter to provide only biodegradable paper rolls, but you can choose to limit the personal usage.
