Beneath the Blue – Bau Bau, Indonesia

After diving and travelling in Asia for nine months, I was given the opportunity to join Operation Wallacea for 8 weeks as a Divemaster. The location was Bau-Bau, the main city on the west side of Buton, situated in Sulawesi. Having travelled from Kuala Lumpur to Makassar via Bali, I was to catch a tiny aircraft to Bau-Bau airport. After being informed there are no direct flights here, I was prepared for some plane hopping.
