Triton Bay Divers is a partnership between the original founders Jimmy Thai & Leeza English, and the Kamakaula family, who are the owners of much of the land around the island of Aiduma and who have here for many generations. We, the founders, felt that the long term success of this project depends on having the local community fully behind us, and so the best way to achieve this was to bring them on board as partners. This way, our interests would be aligned and we would create a win/win situation for each party. The resort was completed in March, 2015. We are the first and still the only Dive Resort in the region.
At Triton Bay Divers, we are acutely aware of the issues facing the planet, in particular the threat of man-made climate change and the impact of ocean acidification and rising water temperatures on coral reefs. It is especially sensitive to us as we see first hand that economic development often comes at the expense of the ecosystem. Our purpose then, together with our Papuan partners, is to promote eco-tourism as a means for sustainable development for the local community, to educate and spread awareness of the issues facing the planet, to share with the world a little corner of paradise, and to preserve it for future generations.
