U all Singaporean dun like that hor…. Keep saying bad about our own country’s water.
Do you know our water is suffering from poor vis for us to become “first world” citizens? Sure we can have better u/w visibility if we ban all ships come into our water territory, we close down all oil refinery & plant at southern islands, but then are we willing go back as 3rd world citizens to exchange for good u/w visibility?
How about we define P.Hantu as a challenging or adventure dive site? Instead of saying it’s bad, lousy, nothing to see etc. We can tell new divers to be extra + extra careful when diving here, not just keep discouraging when actually it never had any serious accident happened here b4. As far as I know, there’s only 1 accident 6 yrs ago, but that case suspected was due to carbon monoxide in air tank, not poor visibility.
And the true is we hv plentiful of marine life, nudi & corals in P. Hantu and Salu, divers just need to dive slow & go really low to see them. These dive sites required divers to have guts, it also let divers know the important of buoyancy control, navigation skill, equipments (esp powerful torch, compass, cutting tools, smb etc). Last but not least, this is a dive site where you don’t mind buddy keep knocking on you, you will be much happy to know that he/she still beside you. And there’s a saying, “if you can dive Hantu, you can dive anywhere in the world.”
This is our country, this is our water! Let’s defence it, let’s be proud of it! (hmm.. think national day is coming ba, suddenly become so patriotic )
