This week in Lembongan… Office staff Ludwig, the one who meets and greets all our guests in Lembongan when they arrive, the one who takes care of payments and helps around the resort, had the chance to get out of the office and into the ocean. With instructor Bryce, Ludwig completed his PADI Open Water this week.
Nusa Lembongan: (Nov 1st-21st)
3 weeks into our divemaster course and we are already saying goodbye to Nusa Lembongan, for now at least, to fly onto Manado and join the two fish crew in Bunaken. What an action filled, learning curve this past 3 weeks has been!
This week in Lembongan… The mola season may officially be over and it was not what we were all expecting but we have had a surprise turn of events this week, with our divers spotting 2 molas on 2 different dives through and another dive centre spotting 4 molas together on 1 dive. This is not to say that the mola season is coming late, but great to see that some are still around.
This week in Lembongan… The common goatfish is often overlooked by experienced divers as they glide their eyes over the reef and through the coral looking for a crazy small creatures or that next colourful nudibranch. But often while we are working with students and one of these somewhat normal looking fish, starts combing through the rubble looking for food with their barbels, is when the divers start to point.
Walls reaching depths of 600m and a location at the heart of the Coral Triangle are only two reasons why technical divers should visit Bunaken island. Yet, despite being perfect tech territory on paper, the island remains something of a well-kept secret. For those who haven’t been, we’ve put together a few reasons to book your trip now.
This week in Lembongan… We have had some amazingly clear dives on the south side of Nusa Penida. It is common on this side of the island to have waves, which normally results in the visibility being less, then that of the north coast. With these clear waters, we had a great dive at Manta Point with friendly mantas.
