We have had a Manta Ray in Bunaken and amazing night dives in Lembeh! In Lembongan we have had some crazy currents due to the super moon, and in TEC our previous divemaster intern came back to do some tec courses.
This week on Bunaken, Two Fish Diver guests were out night diving to discover the wonders of the fish life that likes to stay out late. One of the most fascinating things we watched were sponges ‘breathing’ with the use of a special bright yellow, non-toxic dye that was injected near the base of the sponge. Within a few seconds the sponge would absorb the dye and pump it up through its complex vein system and push it out in a jet stream from the top. The photo for this week was taken by instructor Sandy’s Advanced Open Water students, Roger and Berdine, who were so addicted to night diving that after their course they went out with assistant instructor Ken and watched this crazy sponge phenomena.
