Looks like we have some new neighbours in our Dive sites. They had been around, but the last months had gotten difficult to spot them. And now, because probably they know that we are getting closer to High Season and that the waters are getting colder. Or maybe they are also getting ready to enjoy the Sunfishes coming up the get cleaned and amaze the divers, that should start being a common sight also around here. We are talking about a weird kind of shark, with “leopardy” patters and a strange face. They are bottom dwellers, and use to be found resting in the bottom or hiding under rocks and corals, as our friends in Crystal Bay, that try to hide from divers, but our Dive Guides are too good on treasure hunting. And this is a treasure. Yep, now we have resident Wobbegong sharks at Nusa Lembongan.
And to enjoy the Wobbegong sharks plus all the other underwater friends around here (Manta Rays, Eagle Rays, Frogfishes and cia) we had, again, people from everywhere: Craig, from the States; Vivian and Shin, from Taiwan; Rahul and Nimmi, from India; Alex and Elin, from Sweden; Sita, from China; Rebeca, from Spain and Glenn, from Australia. Some of them, as had spent a long time without diving, went first to the pool to Refresh their skills with our Divemaster Baron. We also had Ottavia, from Italy, that tried diving for the first time (with a bunch of Manta Rays) and buddied up with her boyfriend Zach, from Australia. And our two Divemaster Trainees keep diving, having fun and learning a lot of stuff, getting closer to being Pros.
Thanks Matt Waters from #nomadicscuba for this shot!
