DIVEMASTER INTERNSHIP IN LEMBEH – LAST REPORT FROM THERESIA

Theresia in ManadoToday I am with Two Fish for 2 months. Time passed by really fast and it seems like I have just arrived. Another exciting week in Lembeh. Lewis and I have placed the pyramid we have made and so extended the creation of the artificial house reef. It was rather difficult as the floating wood wanted to go back to the surface until we finally attached it to the concrete block we have placed on 15 m already the week before. It looks quite nice and some fish already started checking out our new creations. A Goby already made the pipe structure made by Sylvie and Joep his new home. The next day we went down again to measure the site and amend the map of the reef creation.

Only women on sidemount!
