The Adventures of Ben: Swim Tests, Guiding and Mantas!
Having welcomed Chris last week, it’s now time to welcome Divemaster Trainee Anna from Zurich. Anna will do her Rescue course before starting her DM Course and as I have my Rescue Assessment in next couple of days, time assisting on Anna’s rescue course will be great for me!
THIS WEEK IN TEC… We were really happy to welcome and train, Mark, an experienced recreational dive instructor from Holland, who spent time doing his TDI Sidemount course and is well on his way to learning to be a sidemount instructor himself! Not only was he relaxing and celebrating his wedding anniversary here on Bunaken and Lembeh, but he took the challenge to learn something new. After his free sidemount trial in the pool with Hiro and Sandy, he could not wipe the huge grin off his face and instantly went for the whole course.
The full moon has just passed and that means drift diving extraordinaire in Bunaken. The currents are keeping a steady pace and throwing a few surprises now and again with some up and down currents, but these currents had all our guests smiling. Every diver knows where there is current there are fish and we had more than your average week.
Our diving boats are ready for the world cup in Lembeh, we had a feast of colourful Nudibranchs in Bunaken, and we got Mola Mola Mola Mola Mola in Lembongan!
