Your leader - Paul

In 2017 I had an accident. I was hospitalised for nearly 10 months, narrowly escaping bilateral amputation (which was scheduled to happen) and was given a less than 5% chance of survival. I spent 35 days in intensive care fighting for my life and on several occasions, family and friends were told to come and say goodbye to me. I survived but was left with the task of learning to walk again and completely rebuilding my physical capability.

My whole outlook on life has changed as a result of this experience and subsequent rehabilitation and healing process that is still part of my daily life. I'd lost sight of what is truly important, my core values and dream of following my passion for wildlife conservation - I'm a qualified wildlife vet. My inner resolve to be able to walk through the darkest period of my life so far, have left me in a place of deep gratitude, inner peace and the reignited passion to pursue my own honest pure truth with a level of integrity and freedom that before this I didn’t believe was possible.

This tour, which I will be leading, is my first venture back into the world I love. I look forward to sharing this journey with whoever is interested in this most amazing planet we have been given as a free gift, and the inner journey of finding our own truth, facing our fears, overcoming our own personal issues, and finding our place in mother nature which is truly beyond description with any words that I can find. ... read more

Get ready to escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life and enjoy the tranquility above and below the waves on Aiduma Island.

Step back in time and imagine what Indonesia was like 40 years ago. This is how locals from other parts of the country describe the region of Kaimana and Triton Bay, still unspoiled by shopping malls and traffic jams. Now take a boat ride away from the main town of Kaimana and you will start your adventure to a world untouched and waiting to be explored.

__________________________________

Triton Bay Divers is a partnership between the founders and the Kamakaula family, who are the owners of much of the land around the island of Aiduma and who have lived on these lands for generations.  We, the founders, felt that the long term success of this project depends on having the local community fully behind us, and so the best way to achieve this was to bring them on board.  This way, our interests would be aligned and we would create a win/win situation for each party.  

We are acutely aware of the issues facing the planet, in particular the threat of man-made climate change and the impact of ocean acidification and rising water temperatures on coral reefs. It is especially sensitive to us as we see first hand that economic development often comes at the expense of the ecosystem. Our purpose then, together with our Papuan partners, is to promote eco-tourism as a means for sustainable development for the local community, to educate and spread awareness of the issues facing the planet, to share with the world a little corner of paradise, and to preserve it for future generations.

Accommodation

The resort’s 6 bungalows, all with sea views, are each able to sleep between 2 to 3 people comfortably. At the end of your day relax on your deck or enjoy a hot water shower in your private garden bathroom.

Each room is equipped with a large ceiling fan and designed with “natural” air conditioning in mind. There is a desk with extra (220v) power sockets, allowing you to download and view your photos whilst charging your camera in preparation for your next day of diving.

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have 24 hour electricity available, but are planning to install solar panels in the not to distant future.  Power will be on from 6:30 am to 11:00pm.

We are conscious of our environmental foot-print and have built the resort using sustainable natural local materials which blend in with the tropical surroundings. Any wood from trees that had to be removed has been utilized elsewhere throughout the resort using local craftsmen and traditional techniques whilst still allowing for a modern touch.
