In October 1982 one of my pal who run a travel representative in Bali asked me to manage his clients, they were Italian and speak a little English. When I satisfied them at Bali International Airport, the first question I must answer was “where is the best place to dive”.
I visited my buddy’s home and fulfill Bli Monyoh, a fisherman reside in Sanur the village on the southeast coast of Bali. I understood he was a good fisherman and really wise in shooting fish, diving with his own talent utilizing really simple dive devices.
We spoke about diving locations and he informed me that in order to find most pleasurable dive, must go to 2 o 3 different locations of the interesting underwater world amongst the reef. Mr. Bli Monyoh took a look at his Balinese calendar to see a good day to go to the sea. My customers loved dive.
The first day he brought us to Semawang at Sanur by his outrigger sail boat. Dives at a few meters depth was rewarded by beautiful undersea panoramas, table and prize shaped coral and sponges, a thousand of colorful fishes swim by in kaleidoscopic abundances.
The 2nd day Bli Monyoh brought his companion a clever scuba diver named Agung Toya, together with them some weapon (precisely an arrow) unwound by a strong rubber band made of tire. Prior to living Sanur, Bli Monyoh laid an offering and scented incense in front of a temple and prayed to God.
When we came to Buitan was a really conventional fishing town, located at the district of Manggis Karangasem eastern Bali near Candidasa, I was surprised by the beauty of the nature, an incredible panorama or the terraces ricefield, rural atmosphere and the Majestic Mount Agung at the far back, for Bali it is the location of the Supreme God “The Navel of the World”. The sea was splendid, clear blue water, remained untouched by modern influences, seduce everyone especially beach and dive enthusiasts. Now Buitan boast a luxury 5 stars hotel and some little lodgings in Balinese design cottage.
When we were preparing everything for dive a cordial regional guy came close to us and offered his own wood boat utilized for totally free in the hope of us catching a lot of fish. Under extremely excellent weather condition we might see a fantastic underwater world among the coral reefs.
My Italian clients brought their own dive equipments due to the fact that they were the holder of PADI license. Wow, wow, wow, what a fantastic day, we fished a lot (only selected fish), one thing surprised me that Bli Monyoh got 4 king lobsters. Wow fantastic, we truly commemorated and took pleasure in a great day.
