Have you tried Sidemount diving? As our guest Simon discovered this week, sidemount diving is not just for serious technical divers (although they love it, too). Benefits include more comfort in the water, better buoyancy control, improved streamlining, and additional safety thanks to having a redundant air supply and a completely separate regulator.
One of the mainstays of Bunaken’s spectacular diving are its dramatic walls, often dropping away to far more than 100 meters, sometimes featuring ledges, overhangs and small caverns. They’re a fantastic playground for beginners and experienced divers alike. Especially for newbies, though, the topography might be a little daunting, so we’ve put together a few tips to help you enjoy your wall dives more.
This week in Nusa Lembongan… It is meant to be the wet season and in the past, January and February are months when the rains come, but not this year. We have had some very hot sunny days and with no rain, it means that the water has been super clear this week. We have had an average visibility of 20 meters at most of our dive sites.
