Lapangan Pante di Morotai

Kapal boat kami baru saja merapat di Pulau Morotai setelah menempuh hampir 2 jam perjalanan dari Tobelo, Halmahera. Kapal boat yang disediakan oleh Pemerintah daerah Halmahera Utara memang bukan didisain untuk keperluan penyelaman. Ini hanya kapal penumpang antar pulau, yang tentu saja sangat menyulitkan untuk gear up dan keluar / masuk setelah penyelaman.
Tapi bukankah kita tak boleh mengeluh untuk sesuatu yang sudah didepan mata. Pulau Morotai yang terkenal dengan reruntuhan wreck sisa sisa Perang Dunia II. Jepang dan Sekutu pernah bertarung hebat memperebutkan pijakan pulau ini. Karena dari pulau ini serangan sekutu menuju Philipina dilakukan.

Lokasi dive site di Pulau Morotai ini dinamakan Lapangan Pante di daerah kampung Wama. Sepanjang perjalanan menuju daerah ini kami melihat bekas bekas landasan udara yang sudah ditumbuhi semak belukar dan pohon pohon.

Penyelaman pertama langsung menuju ke dalaman 35 meter, dan bergerak cepat. Ini memang bukan decompression dive, tapi kami harus cepat dan seefisien mungkin memotret di bawah sana. Tak bisa berlama lama. Semakin dalam semakin cepat pula konsumsi oksigen kami.
Tampak schooling fish seperti jenis ikan sweet lips. Mereka memang menyukai terumbu karang yang tumbuh di reruntuhan wreck.
Ada banyak sekali rongsokan tank, truck , jeep willys, meriam, dan pesawat terbang. Kadang beberapa baling baling tergeletak di sana sini. Sungguh sebuah panorama bawah laut yang menarik. Beruntung visibililty cukup jelas. Sekitar 15 – 20 meter.
Secara naluri photographer memang mau tak mau untuk berlama lama. Saya bahkan tak sadar terus menembus kedalaman sampai 52 meter.

Berulang kali buddy dive dan guide kami memberi tanda untuk segera ke permukaan. Time is up !. Ternyata memang kita semua terkena ceiling dan harus sedikit lebih lama menunggu safety stop. Agar tidak membosankan, kami menghabiskan waktu memotret beberapa reruntuhan yang agak shallow. Seperti ban ban yang berserakan.
Malang tak dapat diraih. Housing milik Bayu retak dan airpun masuk. Rusak sudah kamera DSLR Cannon dan lensanya. Sebuah resiko yang besar dari pemotretan bawah air. Iapun hanya tersenyum kecut.

Kami melakukan surface interfal – sekaligus makan siang – di dekat pelabuhan bernama HMS Lastory Harbour. Sebuah nama asing untuk sebuah perkampungan pelabuhan di Indonesia. Unik sekali. Tipikal kota pelabuhan di kawasan terpencil, sangat tak terurus dan becek. Sebuah bukti Pemerintah Pusat agak tidak perduli dengan pembangunan di sana. Tragis, justru karena Morotai bisa berpotensi untuk menjadi wisata sejarah.
Namun semakin sulit karena semua bekas reruntuhan sudah mulai habis diambil pedagang besi bekas sebagai barang loakan. Di atas dan di bawah laut.

Hanya sisa sisa yang tergeletak di kedalaman lebih dari 30 meter relatif utuh. Mungkin karena sulit dan terlalu dalam.

Setelah penyelaman kedua, kami bersantai sejenak di Pelabuhan memandamg matahari yang semakin turun ke barat. Anak anak pelabuhan bermain main dan berenang di laut sambil sesekali meneriakan salam kepada kami.
Hari yang melelahkan. Kami memandang mereka ketika kapal boat kami mulai beranjak pergi. Meninggalkan Morotai yang semakin habis.
