Normally the crossing from Pemuteran to Menjangan Island is a pleasant 25-minute ride on our comfortable boats. For the past 2 days, however, the Port Authority halted trips to Menjangan due to weather conditions. Hopefully weather conditions will improve and diving will resume tomorrow.

UNFORTUNATELY, however, the rubbish that washes in won’t go away as quickly. Our guests earlier this week were disheartened (as were we) to see considerable rubbish along the shore and in the water in both Menjangan and Pemuteran.

Plastic rubbish washing up on the beach

We are all saddened when we see this

During rainy season, after strong storms anytime and whenever the seas are high, this is what you will find along coastlines all over Indonesia. It’s an ongoing problem without an easy solution. Sea Rovers and many other dive operators do their part locally to pick up trash in organized beach clean-ups. Our dive guides often return with BCD pockets filled with rubbish they have picked up during their dives. We have a plastic recycling program and do everything we can as a business to minimize our impact on the environment.

We will always do our best to choose dive/snorkel sites with the least amount of garbage, but sometimes it is unavoidable.

Since when did Mother Nature become a litterbug?

Really?! A ‘nature’ phenomenon?!
