Staying in an island such as Nusa Lembongan [Bali – Indonesia] will give us plenty of things to do, from many water activities and exploring the island itself. My friend and I got a chance to taste some of the Lembongan watersport provided by Equator Beach Club [which is group under Bali Tjendana Adventures].
When going to Nusa Lembongan island using the speedboat, I saw some ‘floating house’ or a big boat with a slider near the beach. We called this as ‘pontoon.’ Perhaps you are wondering why there’s even such thing near the beach. Well, the pontoon is actually used as the temporary base for people who wants to do the water activities. It’s already filled with many equipment that is necessary for the water activities, including the life vest, but it’s not an obligation for you to do the water activities once you are in the pontoon. You can also be in the pontoon and just seat and watch, but … why don’t you want to join the others and jump to the water? 😉Here are 4 water activities that provided by Equator Beach Club while we were in Nusa Lembongan Island [Bali – Indonesia] where you should definitely check these water activities by yourself later 🙂
Well who doesn’t love riding a banana boat, especially when we fell to the water haha! As this was not my first banana boat ride, I knew that I will be ‘thrown’ to the water, the result was a mix feeling of scared and excited. I automatically grabbed the rope so strong to prevent me from falling to the water. A bit contradictory, right? Lol …
Frenzy is quite similar to ‘banana boat’ but instead of me sitting on the inflatable boat; but I laid myself on that boat [aka the ‘fish’]. It’s not as extreme as the ‘flying fish’ where the ‘fish’ will jump / fly off the water, but … I still needed to grip the rope tightly … if not, it’s not the ‘fish’ who will fly, but I would be the one who ‘fly’ to the water when the boat is taking the ‘sharp turn’ … Lol!!!!
This is the one that I’m waiting for as I’ve never done it before. As the name said that you will literally walk on the bottom of the sea … No worries … It’s not ‘that’ deep as the location of the pontoon is near the beach 😉 and it’s a safe activity as there are dive masters who will monitor ‘the walker’ [not ‘the walker’ from the Walking Dead lol].
The equipment is not complicated, I just used the big helmet made of steel. The helmet steel is heavy, so the weight of the helm plus the gravity will eventually ‘close’ the gap between the helm and your shoulder. The purpose of this is to prevent the water from coming in. So how do we get the oxygen? The helm is connected with the oxygen tube through a hose, that’s why there’s a limit on how far we could walk. Anyway, they have actually already set a small boundaries below the pontoon :-).
I need to remind you one thing … The temperature of the water is cooollllllddd!!!! And I didn’t wear any shirts! I felt cold from the moment I walked down the ladder!! Yikes hahaha!!
Hmm … Should I explain more about this? 😉 Just grab the snorkeling gear, jump to the water, and enjoy the underwater scenery 😉…
Fun things to do, right? Well at least for me, I could experience the one thing that I’ve never done before … The C-walker!
Now it’s your turn to join the fun and experience these water activities by yourself 🙂
