THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……..We have had some rainy days at the beginning of the week, but the weather seems to have been improving, so much that the divers were lucky enough to see beautiful Pilot Whales! Thanks for the photo Reto & Simone.
Underwater the visibility is 20 metres plus and we have been seeing the whole range from big to small to tiny, but particularly plentiful and diverse are the Ghostpipe fish and Pygmy Seahorses this week. We have seen Denise, Severns & Pontohi Pygmy Seahorses and Ornate, Thin, Velvet & Halimeda Ghost Pipefish. We have also seen Orangutan, Boxer & Candy crabs, Pink Leaf Scropion fish, Banded Boxer, Anemone & Commensal Shrimps, Elegant Squat lobsters, Short Nose Pipefish, Black and Gold Polyclad Flat Worm, Spotted Garden eels, various Nudibranch including Nembrotha Kubaryana, Black and White Reef Sharks, Barracuda, Jacks, Dog Tooth Tuna and Turtles.
We also welcome Reto our DMT who came from Lembongan to Bunaken. This is the second resort of his three resort DM course. Lots of great and diverse experience for him!
Happy Earth Day to everyone! All the Two Fish resorts have been out collecting rubbish in celebration. More about that later.
That’s all for now, find out more about diving in Bunaken with us.
