Divers to Join Takabonerate Festival in Selayar Islands

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Dozens of foreign divers will join the Takabonerate Festival in the Selayar Islands, South Sulawesi, on October 23-27.

Selayar Islands Tourism Office head Ince Rahim said that the Takabonerate Festival 2017 will feature two categories, namely under water beauty and cultural-culinary events. “The events will mainly be held in the Fortress City of Selayar Islands,” he said in Makassar on Monday.

“Particularly in under water [events], we have admitted 90 participants. They consist of not only Indonesians divers but also foreign ones, such as Australia, Malaysia and Singapore,” he said.

He explained that the organizer will only admit a limited number of divers in Takabonerate due to the lack of diving equipment and as a precautionary action to protect marine biota.

Only those who have a diving certificate are allowed to become participants. “We only expect [a total] of 150 divers.”

Selayar Islands Regent Muh Basli Ali said that under water beauty of the area needs to be preserved and expected that Takabonerate Festival would not destroy it.
