Before my trip to Bali, I read a lot about seawalker and saw many fantastics pictures and I always wonder what is it really like?
Seawalker is a unique water sport allowing everyone to walk on the bottom of Bali ocean and enjoy the beautiful sea life.
We were lucky enough to meet a seawalker tour guide in our visiting to Waterblow. So that we didn’t need to book online tour. The next day, the guide pick up us at the hotel to Bali seawalker point. We signed an insurance paper and we were given a pair of rubber shoes and underwater swimsuit to protect our feet and body. Before the seawalking, there was a short briefing about some underwater signs. In the advertisement, they mentioned the activities would take around 30 minutes but it was very short and less than 30 minutes, I suppose.
If you want to take photos or videos to save the best moments, you have to purchase extra money. We paid Rp400 for a CD of photos and videos for 3 of us.
After equipped very heavy helmets, we reached the bottom of the sea easily. The guide provided us fish food so we were always surrounded by a lot of fish. But as I see, the fish there is quite limited comparing to my snorkeling tour in Perhentian island in Malaysia. Overall, It is not as many fish as I expected and the Bali sea is not really clean, but it is a fantastic experience that you should try at least once.
