Overview

Triton Bay Divers is located in Aiduma Island on the south side of Triton Bay, facing the Iris Strait and with access to the bay itself and the many small islands and dive sites in the area. The resort has just 6 rooms, a dive centre and an open-air dining room - all you need for an incredible holiday exploring this stunning destination. The rooms are comfortable and welcoming, and are designed to take advantage of sea breezes - although they also come equipped with a fan and mosquito nets just in case.

The resort has been set up as a partnership between the founders and the Kamakaula family, the owners of much of the land around the island of Aiduma. Triton Bay Divers believe that by bringing in the local community as partners, together they can ensure the success of the resort, help conserve the pristine environment of the bay and promote eco-tourism as a means for sustainable development for the local community.

Resort facilities

The resort’s 6 bungalows, all with sea views, are each able to sleep between 2 to 3 people comfortably, and come with a private deck and ensuite bathroom with hot water shower.  Each room is equipped with a large ceiling fan and designed with “natural” air conditioning in mind and there is a desk with power sockets for charging camera batteries. All meals are served in the spacious open air dining room, designed to make guests feel at one with nature. and a perfect place to have a coffee between dives. All the resort’s buildings were built with the environment in mind and whenever possible, sustainable natural local materials have been used which blend in with the tropical surroundings. Any wood from trees that had to be removed was utilized elsewhere throughout the resort using local craftsmen and traditional techniques, whilst still allowing for a modern touch.

At the moment, Triton Bay does not have 24 hour electricity, but are planning to install solar panels in the not to distant future.  Power is available from 6:30 am to 11:00pm.

CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES


Conservation at Triton Bay Divers

Triton Bay is one of three regions in Indonesia’s West Papua province that make up the Bird’s Head Seascape, now considered to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity in the Coral Triangle and home to more fish and coral species than anywhere else on the planet. The dive sites around Triton Bay were first surveyed in 2006 by a team from Conservation International and State University of Papua and the results prompted the government of Kaimana in 2008 to declare a 6000 sq km marine protected area around the waters of Kaimana and Triton Bay. Triton Bay Divers is now the only resort in this incredible region and endeavours to protect the reefs and promote sustainable economic development for the community.

Whilst always keeping sustainable practices in mind, the resort’s remote location and difficult access means it is unable to do quite as much as resorts in more easily-reached areas might do. For instance, whilst the resort would like to install solar panels to ensure 24 hour electricity, the logistics of getting fragile panels out to their location is formidable. As such, the resort is looking to use what technologies it can - ones more suited to remote locations - as well as introduce sustainable practices at the resort and work alongside the local community.

Triton Bay Divers does not use single use plastic items, and recycles or reuses as much plastic waste, paper and oil as it can. It also actively encourages its guests to bring home what waste they can. Rain water is collected for use in the gardens and staff quarters and the rooms rely on fans and natural breezes for cooling, rather than aircon.  Triton Bay has established a very close relationship with the local villages and the vast majority of the staff are from the local area. They have also contributed towards building a fishing platform - Triton Bay Divers’ very own whale shark ‘bagan’.

Sustainability

ENVIRONMENT

The resort also uses energy efficient appliances, uses fans to cool the buildings, collects rain water and encourages guests to be aware of their water consumption.

SOCIAL

Almost 100% of the employees of Triton Bay Divers are from the local area. The resort trains their staff educates them about sustainable practices and the environment and has built a fishing platform - a whale shark ‘began’ - as part of a community project with the villages.

ECONOMIC

Whenever possible, the resort buys locally - from shops or markets.

MARINE

Triton Bay Divers employs strict guidelines for both divers and snorkelers. Fortunately, the beaches and waters of Triton Bay are generally very clean and there is no need for beach cleanups. However, should the dive staff see plastic waste, they collect it.
