On your next dive holiday to Indonesia you will definitely bump into at least two types of sea turtles, the Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle.
We get both types of these sea turtles at all of our dive locations in Indonesia.
To ensure that you get the most out of your encounter with these beautiful and gentle creatures here is some facts about them, some tips on how to tell them apart and some pointers on how to interact with them.
This week in Lembongan… The seas have been calm and flat, allowing us some great chances to nip around to the south coast of Nusa Pendia to the famous manta sites. Although Manta Point hasn’t had the number of mantas that it normally has, Manta Bay has been the site of choice for these hungry manta rays to feed.
Having never dived before I decided to go “zero to hero”, from non-diver to Divemaster, with Two Fish and complete my Divemaster course in Bunaken. Why? Mainly because my dad had always loved diving and from his stories I knew I would too (I also wanted to get away from the miserable British weather), so I swapped England for sunny Sulawesi.
This week in Bunaken… Five different species of sea turtle are among the marine life Bunaken Marine Park is famous for and recently we’ve seen particularly big ones, true ‘battleship turtles in Bunaken’. They’re one of our guests’ favourite photography subjects. These past few days, they were in for a treat.
Goodbye mola! Today I finished my divemasters with a really good last day! While mapping crystal bay a mola came by to wave goodbye to my instructor Gwen and me. The first half of my Divemaster was in Sanur, Bali mainland, where I started with 4 days of theory and skills practice in the pool with my instructor Reuben. During these days I learned that performing a skill and demonstrating one is a whole different story and how much control in diving I have left to gain.
