Welcome to our weekly round-up #9, Mar 2014. We are still getting 30 meter visibility and have been diving in Bunaken with lots of turtles, with up to 14 on one dive!
In Lembeh we are still enjoying no crowds on the boats and dive sites packed with Flamboyant Cuttlefish, and some returning guests got to see lots of Manta’s in Lembongan!
Our Divemasters Interns have been active – Sara reports on her 4th week in Lembongan, Simon gives his 2nd week report, and we said goodbye to Andreas who gave us some memorable photos from his snorkel test on his last night!
In TEC, Kate takes up a technical MSD challenge – she is doing the TEC 40, TEC 45, TEC 50, Sidemount, Equipment Speciality and Search & Recovery Speciality courses, and this week she completed her TEC40-50 courses.
Check out our current offers for staying & diving with us, and if you want to do some diving or critter hunting in your armchair then why not have a look at some of these diving books from Amazon.

We welcome Elaine and Nick from Great Britain who have stayed in our two oher resorts previously and thought they would give us a go. So far we were able to show them loads of Mantas, a tresher shark, bamboo sharks, blue spottet stingrays, many different crabs and shrimps and an abundance of different nudibranchs.
Our DMTs were busy with checking and counting all our rental equipment. But naturally they also went diving. Zara’s now getting closer and closer to the end of her course as only a few things are left to do…
We’re still enjoying no crowds on the boats and dive sites but a host of great critters! Cheryl gave us this pic of a Flamboyant Cuttlefish – this was high on her wish list and she has so far seen 5 of them!
We’ve also seen Flamboyant eggs on several dive sites plus lots of Ghost Pipefish (Ornate, Robust and Delicate including a stunning lime green Robust pair), Blue Ringed Octopus, Donald Duck Shrimp, Wunderpus, tonnes of Painted Frogfish, Mimics, Harlequin Shrimp, Candy Crabs, Ambon Scorpionfish, Melibe (nudi), Zebra Batfish, Hairy Frogfish, Bargibanti pygmy seahorses and lots more!
With 30 meter visibility we have been diving Bunaken with lots of turtles, with up to 14 on one dive. One cheeky turtle even tried to take a nibble of the dome port of Edwin’s camera.
Edwin & Jan also saw their first Candy crab and a spawning sea cucumber. Edwin took this beautiful photo of a Slipper Lobster, thank for sharing it!
We have also seen Napoleon Wrasse, Black tip reef Sharks, Barracudas, Yellow Margined Morays, Twin Spot Lionfish, Marble Shrimps, Candy crabs, boxer crabs, Crinoid Clingfish, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Pontohi Pygmy Seahorse, Pink & Elegant Squat Lobsters.
