Welcome to our weekly round-up #16, May 2014. This week one of our dive guides spotted a large octopus in Lembongan having a swim, and in Bunaken we had 10 turtles in one dive.
Mantas and Mojitos in Lembongan
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…….
A week full of Mantas and an evening with mojitos. Poseidon has calmed the roaring seas in the south to provide us with excellent conditions to head to the two Manta spots every day this week.
The experience for some guest was so moving that they requested to go again the next day and the next day. Sightings reaching 10 mantas in one dive and a total of 40+ through the week.
With all these sightings of mantas through the week, lots of videos and photos were taken and have been handed over to Aquatic Alliance (the manta research program here in Lembongan)
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……… we found a clown frogfish in Bunaken, who says they are only in Lembeh! The weather has been really good and we have had visibility of 25m and more, maybe this is why we have been seeing lots of bigger things like Napoleon wrasse, Baracuda, Whitetip and Blacktip reef sharks, Eagle rays, Yellowfin & Dog-tooth Tuna, and schools of Big-eye Trevaly and Batfish.
THIS WEEK IN TEC… Our CCR guest Rob from the UK took advantage of our rebreather rental package for the Poseidon Discovery MK6 CCR. He and Hiro descended along the spectacular walls of Bunaken without bubbles, coming very close to the unique marine life. All his rebreather needs were met and supported for his whole week of diving, in which time he completed 20 CCR dives!
