Dorey bay my favorite snorkeling place
I just returned from snorkeling around the Dorey bay of Manokwari. Today, I snorkeled with Grietje (a Dutch tourist from the Netherlands), Ani, Paul and another Papuan girl that I forgot her name. Well, we went to the sea at 13.00 this afternoon. The tide was low and it was the perfect time for snorkeling. Unfortunately, it was not in full moon week of the month so, the low tide was not maximum. But we managed to enjoy snorkeling around the beautiful corals and saw various kinds of ornamental fish. I didn't use underwater camera to shoot the following photographs. Instead, I just stood in shallow water and shot these corals using my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30. The size of the photo files is quite large. I have re-sized them all using Adobe Photoshop CS3.
I brought my own locally made snorkeling snorkeling glasses which does not have air pipe. I had to come up to the surface again after less than one minute under water. Luckily one of the Papuan girls lend me the snorkeling mask that is equipped with an air pipe and I was able to enjoy the beauty of the coral reef for longer time.
Dorey bay of Manokwari city has several beautiful places for snorkeling. As a tourist guide, I usually bring tourists to a place where there are not many people around so that they can enjoy snorkeling without being disturbed.
