The next day we had Merry Yoweni called for an excursion to the whale sharks, she was in Jayapura, but Kris, her husband came to our hotel. He had very busy with all kinds of issues but would arrange the excursion for us with local fishing men and the 4.5 million rupiah for this day was mainly to the local people. The next morning we were picked up by 2 men at 6.00, lunch brought Kris later (he had overslept), a pair of white bread, water and a jar of peanut butter. The ride, 2 hour, to the fishing village went through the local market where a huge amount of betel nuts were purchased, the whole ride there was cigarettes smoked and spat. At the fishing village was first the stock betel nuts divided and we went with a local fisherman in a boat looking for the whale sharks. The fisherman was stoned, incidentally, no one spoke any English word, and after he was gone, a number of fishing platforms or ribbons along, he stopped the search. In consultation with Kris had this indicated that the fishermen every day the whale sharks performed with small fish, and thereby the fishermen knew where the whale sharks. In retrospect, it turned out that the fisherman had not spent to the 500 000 rupiah buying bait and gave the fishermen on the platform were also not by where the whale sharks. After we were dropped on a small island, the fisherman themselves fish, we were already after a few hours to the fishing village of reduced, only communication was not possible. in the evening, called Kris and he has been to the hotel. He indicated that there were mistakes made and proposed to pay back the money for the bait, he also brought us the next day to the airport. Kris is a very nice man full of good intentions but the local people are not ready for tourism. After we had it then flew to Biak, the next day we regret and have returned to Nabire and have 3 nights booked at Kali Lemon resort, this was class, see separate report.
If you are a diver, this is the place you can dive side-by-side with whale sharks. The adult fish monster can be 7-8 meter. more »
