This week in Bunaken…. Divers on Bunaken are paying tribute to the littler creatures out on our magnificent walls, highlighting especially the goby! Pictured here is the common fire dart goby most often found in the rubble coral or sandy bottoms of the slopes in and around Bunaken. The goby is too easily forgotten but makes the reef all that more colourful!
Fun divers are having turtle town in Bunaken, and it’s not the size that matters in Lembongan.
This is my fourth week as a dive master intern. This week my brother has come over to do his advanced course at Bunaken. I assisted on his course and since it was my last few days at Two Fish Bunaken I wrapped up some of my pending swim tests and the dive mapping activity.
The mini-dive is a new addition to the confined water section of the new PADI Open Water Course skills. This is where student divers plan a simulated dive in a controlled environment with the assistants of their instructor. To make dive planning even easier, students now have the dive planning slate that walks them through all the steps of dive planning.
