This week in Bunaken… Eagle rays are in general a fairly common sight here in Bunaken. In the beginning of the year we did however notice a dip in sightings, but they now seem to be back in numbers. They are seen on almost every dive at the moment! And considering how easy it is to just look on the reef walls for cool critters you can only imagine how many cruise by unnoticed behind us. It is always a great treat to have one of those large rays swim past with that cheeky looking face. They look like they just got away with some mischief!
This week in Lembeh…. Cephalopods say hello. With the number of cephalopods being seen, guests are wondering if they can go a dive without seeing one! Between all the sightings of blue ringed octopus, Wonderpus, Mimics, Broad club cuttlefish, Bigfin reef squid, bobtailed squid, just to name a few, its been hard to find time to fit in the frogfish, sea moths, squat lobsters, nudies, etc. Not that anyone has been complaining, we have been seeing many happy faces dive after dive.
