Just a couple days ago I encountered hands down — the best snorkeling of my entire life.  I joined Uber Scuba in Labuan Bajo, Flores on one of their dive trips.  The entire experience was really great, and I would highly recommend diving with them.

I still don’t have my PADI certifications to go scuba-diving (hearing problems), so I only could free-dive, but it was still amazing.  I saw turtles, sharks, a manta ray, and so many different types of fish I can’t even count.  If you’re coming to Indonesia, you NEED to make sure you plan a scuba or snorkeling trip to this dive spot — Batu Balong, Flores, Indonesia!

WELCOME TO BATU BATONG..

IT MIGHT JUST LOOK LIKE A ROCK…BUT LET’S TAKE A LOOK UNDERNEATH

I had to hold my breath for the longest I think I ever have in my entire life to catch up to this turtle to get the perfect selfie with it.  You can’t really tell, but this is actually pretty damn deep.

I DO LIKE THESE PHOTOS, BUT IT HONESTLY DOES NOT EVEN DO IT JUSTICE FOR HOW AMAZING IT WAS.  IF YOU FIND YOURSELF AROUND KOMODO…MAKE SURE YOU SNORKEL / DIVE AT BATU BATONG…
