Dolphins possess the inert quality of opening our hearts, reminding us of playful easiness and joy of living. The Balinese sometimes call them “angels of the sea” and their presence is a blessing that is felt every time our guests return, beaming and glowing with delight. If the Gods of the Sea are with you, you might just be lucky enough to see the enormous spout of a whale or even its majestic tail submerging slowly in the depths of the sea.
The trip in typical Balinese outriggers is unforgettable, even on mornings when dolphins and whales are nowhere to be seen. If you are lucky, you may see the Rinjani volcano of Lombok (the third largest volcano in Indonesia) in the far distance or admire large swarms of flying fish and turquoise-blue marine plankton glittering like fairy dust. And marvel at the discovery of how well hidden the Bali Mandala Resort lies nestled in Bali’s largest palm grove.
