“Experiencing a Hidden Gem while helping to Save Sharks”
The crew at The Dorsal Effect were really responsive and reliable pre trip, during the trip and post trip. The service from Kathy and Agus is personal and impeccable. Mr T was the captain of our snorkelling boat and it was great to know that he was a shark fisherman before and is now doing his part to save the beautiful sharks. I enjoyed my time with them tremendously… 😉
Kuta Lombok in itself feels nicely secluded and free. I enjoyed a beautiful sunset on my first day of arrival. We went to 2 site for snorkelling, warm pristine waters and healthy corals everywhere. I even get to see a mobula ray 🙂
Because it was just me, I think we had time and the crew treated me to The Sunken Island which I though was really special. Its a submerged tiny sandy island during high tide. I had a walk during low tide and Agus showed me a magical world of star fishes, juvenile batfish and corals to marvel at.
I highly recommend this to anyone or family who wants to experience true nature and doing good while you are at it! The Dorsal Effect is a social enterprise trying to give fishermen who hunt shark a viable alternative livelihood in eco-tourism.
I’ll add photos when I have better connection. still enjoying nature!
