Marine Tourism Association Prepares Reliable Tour Guides

Marine Tourism Association Prepares Reliable Tour GuidesWater tourist attraction, chiefly rafting, is in great demand among travelers. Even, the demand for these rafting products and services are increasing. On that account, to provide maximum services, the Regional Executive Board of the Marine Tourism Association (Gahawisri) supported the Bali Government Tourism Office held technical guidance of rafting marine tourism, Tuesday (Mar 4).

A total of 40 participants from 20 rafting companies across Bali attended the activity. Each company sent two tour guides. After attending the technical guidance, all the participants took competency test conducted by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy through the Professional Certification Institute (LSP) of Indonesian Tourism.

Secretary of the Gahawisri Bali, Wayan Sukianten, said that every company had 20 to 25 rafting guides who needed to get coaching and training. “We hope this technical guidance can be improved in the coming years. At least, the technical guidance can be held 2 times a year,” he explained.

Meanwhile, I Ketut Tresna, the Executive Secretary, said the strategic significance contained in the technical guidance was to improve the competency, knowledge and skills of human resources, especially the rafting guide. The second strategic significance was for the improvement of the image of Bali tourism, especially the rafting both in terms of rafting management product and service aspect, including safety, comfort and security of travelers.

“It’s worth noting that the price of rafting package in Bali must be standardized with minimum price so the rafting product will not experience tariff war that can reduce the quality of service,” said Tresna.

The technical guidance brought in speakers from the SAR that provided education specifically about the river rescue. Meanwhile, the basic local river and medical first aid training were provided by the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI).

In the meantime, the Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) provided the subject matter about rafting location and river sanitation as a reference in carrying out the operations on the river. At the end of the event, all participants were invited to field practice at Telaga Waja River. (BTN/015)
