The Man, The Myth, The Legend. Dollar grew up here in Lembongan and has always been in love with ocean, spending his childhood surfing at every opportunity. Shortly after graduating high school is when he began his journey into the diving world.
Completing both his Divemaster and Dive Instructor training, he then went to work to further develop his experience. His diving career took him all over Indonesia. Although most of his time was spent in Bali. He also stayed for a few years in Wakatobi.
After many years, he decided to open his own dive center applying all the knowledge and expertise he had gained. Dollar has a broad knowledge of the ocean and its marine life. Seemingly able to identify any species that he sees. Feeling most at home in the water, when he is not diving, you can find him surfing. He always seems to be sporting that infectious smile.
The glue that holds everything together. Bowo is especially skilled in organization, trip planning and ensuring the day-to-day operations run smooth. Bowo and Dollar met whilst working in Bali and then reunited once again in Wakatobi before teaming up at WiFish.
As a Divemaster himself, Bowo also has a deep love for the ocean. These days, however, he is much more in his element as our Operations Manager. You can be sure he is always the first to arrive and last to leave.
Born and raised in Bandung, West Java, Bowo goes above and beyond to make sure every little detail is taken care of. He thrives in his role here and his friendly face is usually the first one you will see. Bowo and Dollar became best friends from the moment they met. Although by the way they interact with each other, you would almost guess they were brothers.
The Captain of the Ship, Gund is one of the most trusted and reliable Boat Operators in the area. Having spent many years on the waters around the area, his experience and expertise navigating these waters is not matched by many. Gund always makes safety a top priority.
Born and raised on Lembongan. Gund is Dollar’s younger brother. So it was a natural fit for him to be the captain of the WiFish boat. Gund holds a professional Indonesian boat operator license (SKK 60 mill). You can be sure you are in good hands when traveling on our boat.
When he is not working, you will still find find him playing in the ocean. Whether he is surfing, freediving or spearfishing, you know he will be having fun.
The man that always makes sure you have 200 bar in your tanks. Gd Rama was born in Northern Indonesia in Sulawesi. He came down to the Bali area 11 years ago when he was still in junior high school. He studied Rabies prevention and worked in his field for some time before moving over to the diving industry.
Gd looks after our shop, maintaining our equipment and making general repairs. Generally, he is making sure everything at the dive center is in tip top shape.
He has a passion for photography. Because of this he spends most of his free time venturing around the island looking for that perfect shot.
Gd has shown some interest in learning to dive and will likely enroll in the zero to hero program in the near future. Sooner than later you will be meeting him underwater!
A true waterman at heart, Dacka Dika is the latest addition to our WiFish family. A Nusa Lembongan local, he has spent most of his life on the water.
Prior to joining us in the diving industry, Dika worked for many years in the boating industry. He served as crew on routes between Lombok and Sumbawa and Bali and Nusa Lembongan.
Dika is our Assistant Captain and will always make sure that everything is taken care of for you while you are out on our boat.
When the work day is done, you will most likely find Dika out surfing one of the many breaks in the area.
There would be no WiFish without these two, that is for sure.
Dollar’s mother and father grew up in Lembongan and have called this island home for their entire lives. They both used to make a living working in the seaweed farming industry here. However, when WiFish opened, Dollar was able to convince them to open their own small restaurant (Warung Doru).
These two prepare the homemade daily lunches for our guests, offering up a selection of fresh and tasty options. Momma gets up at 4am every morning to prepare and cook the rice the “old fashioned” way. Because as she puts it – she eats the food too. We are sure you will taste the difference!
Our cute little mascot, Butt Butt was rescued when he was just a few months old. We instantly fell in love with him and he has become an integral part of our family. Small in size, but big in personality, he is very friendly, loveable and cannot get enough cuddles.
Butt Butt generally spends his days at the dive center and is sure to greet all our guests with a wagging tail. When he is not at the dive center, he can be found helping Dollar’s mother and father at their restaurant.
He doesn’t usually join our trips as he is still working on developing his sea legs and swimming skills. However, he is doing very well in his training thus far. He has recently started learning how to surf and has shown some impressive skills in his lessons.
