This week has been fantastic for both large and small marine creatures in Bunaken with a particularly lucky group seeing a pod of ten eagle rays on one single dive! All around the island we’re seeing plenty of ornate ghost pipefish on many of our favourite dives. And there is a new face around as well!
We have had lovely clear, warm water again when diving in North Lombok lately. The Gili’s are famous for the scenery, night life, and surfing. Diving over the past few years has become extremely popular. We may lack the colour from soft coral but the north does attract such an adverse amount of sea life such as one of my favourite’s…bat fish!!
It’s been time for fun and some magic muck diving in Amed, Bali this week. As well as our frequent trips to the USAT Liberty and other places we welcomed returning Two Fish guest Simon for 5 days who wanted to see what all the muck diving fuss was about here. And we delivered in style 🙂
Looking to take an Underwater Photography Course in order to improve your photography skills on your next trip to Lembeh?
Divemaster in Training Tristan Stafford took Scott’s Digital Underwater Photography course this week, with amazing results! Here’s a wonderful account of his experience…
This week, when diving in South Lombok, the pygmy seahorse are all out in force and they seem to be popping up everywhere. Normally here in the south of Lombok we find them on our dive site pygmy point but as I said they have been spotted this week on most of our dive sites.
I am about to finish my time in Bunaken, and again I am not at all ready to say goodbye. Although, I have almost finished checking all the boxes for completing my Divemaster program! With my last two weeks so near, I really have no idea where the time went, and I am not ready for it to end. The past two weeks have been quite action packed, finishing up more specialty courses and assisting with guiding and other courses.
This week in Lembongan… The north coast conditions have been spot on this week and to mix things up with the manta sites, we have been spending a lot of time this week, diving the north coast of Penida and Lembongan. One dive site that has stood out for our guests has been the dive site called Mangrove.
This week in South Lombok, we had a strange visitor to the dive center as he wondered across the road and straight through the gates and we have not been able to work out what he is. We have checked all the fish books we have and have come to the conclusion that he is a shrimp lobster.
