The PADI Wreck Specialty is a fantastic course which, once completed, opens the door to truly magnificent wreck diving around the world. Big congratulations to Brent Heckendorf and Jackie Murray for finishing the PADI Wreck Specialty, despite a few frustrating days beached on land watching the calendar with a worried eye. However, an ear infection and a dwindling time schedule were not enough to deter Two Fish’s newest DMT’s from completing the Wreck Speciality on Lembeh’s famous Mawali Wreck.
Diving has traditionally been taught and done in teams or with a buddy. The rationale behind this is that adding another person automatically adds safety (as well as enjoyment) to the dive. However, we believe there are exceptions to the rule: situations in which Solo Diving – or knowing how to safely dive on your own – might be a great alternative.
This week on the North Gilis, Lombok we have been finding Nemo on various Dive sites around Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan. For beginners and some experience divers they are a real treat just like the juvenile yellow boxfish. These false clown anemone fish are in a lot of places around here. We have our residents at the dive site called “Turtle Heaven” that hang around in their anemone home up on the marlin hill. Unfortunately for this family the anemone has been bleached earlier this due to high temperature waters.
