Hi Buddies,

Ijin share trip report dikit ya!

Kali ini arus membawa gw ke Maumere, Flores, Indonesia. Kita turun pake operator Capa Maumere Resort, diving 3 hari di sekitar Pulau Babi, Pulau Pangabatang dan di sekitar Tanjung Maumere nya. Hampir semuanya wall dive, with 20++ meters visibility!

Coral health dan density nya sangat padat, terlepas beberapa area yg udah jadi coral rubbles karena tsunami dulu di tahun 92. Tapi udah mulai keliatan banyak soft corals yg tumbuh disana sini, forming new life for the ocean ecosystem.

Di pulau Babi, ada bagian patahan akibat tsunami tahun 92. Create a deep feeling waktu kita liat patahannya dr sisi samping wall dimana sun rays menerobos masuk di antara koral2.

Menurut apa yg gw liat, bottom formation disini jadi jagoan, mungkin jg ada occasional pelagic sighting (tapi sepertinya belum rejeki kita kemarin untuk liat pelagic disini). Setiap corals disini hampir semuanya dihuni dengan anthias warna orang, pink, glass fish. banyak blue spotted sting ray juga. dan di Pangabatang, banyak titan trigger fish :)) :)) :))

Site di pulau Pangabatang kita disuguhi arus pada saat entry (jadi mesti effort dikit untuk turun), dan kemudian lanjut dengan drift diving. Highly advisable untuk bawa hook.

Top side nya, definitely one of the best I have ever visited. Pantai di Pulau Babi, Pulau Pangabatang, definitely one of the best. Selain dari island hopping di Maumere Bay, di penghujung trip kita sempetin main ke Pantai Koka, yg berada di sisi selatan nya Flores, 1.5 jam nyetir dari Maumere. One of the most exquisite and secluded beach I have ever visited.

Full report nya, feel free to watch the video di link berikut yaaaa http://bit.ly/IULABS-Maumere

Gear used: My best friend Sony RX100M2 in Nauticam, with 2x2,800 lumens light, Inon UWL-H100 lens (no dome), URPRO Color Correction Filter. Some DJI toys for topside and aerial paired with Polar Pro Filters.

Enjoy! Don't forget to watch in HD!

Cheers and dive safe!
