Diving Donggala: House Reef

Share


Saat trip diving biasanya di awal selalu dilakukan check dive, yaitu diving pertama untuk refresh jika peserta sudah lama tidak menyelam dan juga agar instructor dapat melihat kemampuan peserta dan menyusun group yang tepat dengan pengawasan yang sesuai. 

During diving trip, there's always a first dive called check dive, which is first dive session to see the ability of each participant and also to refresh for those haven't been diving for a while. This check dive also determine how the group will be assemble and to know appropriate supervision. 

Check dive biasanya dilakukan di lokasi yang dekat, tidak terlalu dalam dan kebanyakan area berpasir sehingga benar-benar hanya untuk cek kemampuan masing-masing peserta. 

Check dive usually done in nearby location, not too deep and mostly sandy area so that it is really for the sake of checking the participants’ ability.




Saat dive trip ke Donggala check dive dilakukan persis di area depan Prince John Dive Resort di Tanjung Karang, Donggala. Kami hanya perlu berjalan ke pantai dan langsung shore entry dari pantai yang berpasir putih ini.

During our trip to Donggala, the spot for check dive is exactly in front of Prince John Dive Resort area in Tanjung Karang, Donggala. We just need to walk to the beach and do the shore entry from this white-sandy beach.




Meski merupakan pantai umum dan banyak sekali dikunjungi masyarakat setempat saat liburan, titik penyelaman di depan Prince John Dive Resort ini cukup menyenangkan. House Reef terletak di Teluk Palu, bagian inner circle dalam area-area penyelaman di Donggala dan merupakan salah satu dari 3 titik penyelaman shore dive di depan Prince John Dive Resort.

Though it is a public beach and mostly visited by local people on holiday, this diving point in the front area of Prince John Dive Resort is quite fun. House Reef is located in Teluk Palu, part of inner circle of diving areas in Donggala and also one of the 3 shore dive points in front  of Prince John Dive Resort.





Kedalaman mulai dari sekitar 3 meter dan kami bergerak memutari area House Reef ini hanya hingga kedalaman belasan meter saja. Sebagian besar dasar area merupakan pasir putih dengan batuan koral menghiasi. 

We started from around 3 meters deep and circling around this House Reef until only about 12 to 17 meters deep. Most of the base at the bottom were white sands, adorned with corals.





Kami menemukan beberapa jenis nudi seperti black-nargined nudibranch dan nembrotha dengan pattern garis-garis hijau. Ada juga cuttlefish yang sedang diam di sisi karang dan menjauh saat kami dekati serta berbagai jenis ikan karang.

We found different kinds of nudi such as black-nargined nudibranch and nembrotha with green stripes pattern. There were also cuttlefish which stayed still alongside the coral but went away as we got closer, and also various kinds of  fishes.








Tanpa terasa sudah 67 menit kami menyelam. Pelan-pelan kami mendekati pesisir lagi dan muncul kembali persis di depan dive resort. Check dive is fun also :)

Time flies and we had been diving for 67 minutes. Slowly, we reached the coast again and appeared right in front of the dive resort. Check dive is  also fun! :)
