This week in Amed … we discovered one of the most famous critter’s in Amed, the Denise’s pygmy seahorse! One of our guests is a very experienced diver Monica and she did her PADI Wreck Diver, PADI Enriched Air Diver and PADI Digital Underwater Photography specialities, and she asked us to try and find some rare and very interesting critters. That was a good opportunity for us to show what out guides can do!!
This week we have had some great Gili Island diving as Gili Air has started to become busy busy and busy! The dive shop is almost complete and looking great, a massive space once the rubble has gone, we can really see now what the finished result will look like. The island is getting full of travellers, families and vacationers. The atmosphere has picked up to the feeling of high season.
Sometimes it’s the simple Lembeh critters that excite people the most!
This week at Two Fish Lembeh, Emperor Shrimp, Blue-Dragon Nudibranch and territorial Anemonefish are the main topics of conversation at the dinner table. And rightfully so! Though common to Lembeh, these crazy critters are not so common in other areas of the world.
This week in Nusa Lembongan… A cuttlefish has been spotted at Crystal Bay. Hidden in the sandy area of the dive site, a small cuttlefish has been found by our dive guides. This expert of camouflage is able to change its colouring to help it blend into its surroundings. With the sand being soft, it is able to wiggle its way sightly into the sand to help camouflage itself even more!
This week in Amed …. The high season is starting in Amed and we have just had a PADI Open Water Diver course with 3 students where they discovered mimic octopus in Amed on our house-reef, as well as frogfishes, seahorses, snake eels and wide variety of nudibranchs.
We have a lot of courses going on in Bunaken at the moment! Our instructors Dion and Markus have their hands full currently…
We welcomed four new open water divers to the underwater world in the last ten days. Ten year old Finlay just finished his Scuba Diver Course yesterday and he is very excited to explore the amazing coral walls in Bunaken. We also had four Advanced Open Water course, two Rescue courses, two nitrox specialties, one night diver and one sidemount specialty course in the last few days. In our very popular Divemaster course, we have four dive master trainees in Bunaken at the moment.
This week in the North Gilis, Lombok we had Jacqui Join us from the UK. It was an absolute pleasure diving with her, we visited the sites called: “Turtle Heaven”, “Bounty Wreck”, “Shark point” and “Bat Fish Point”. Jacqui is a diver just like me, extra slow and hunting for macro. We knew that here in the north gili’s there is a lot to see from the bigger sea life to the small stuff but in those 2 days I was surprised to see such a vast amount of macro.
We are now able to offer PADI TecRec instructor courses in Amed this summer after our IDC Course! Jeff Glenn, one of Asia’s most highly qualified and respected technical diving instructor trainers, will be joining us so why not take this opportunity to help you stand out from the instructor crowd?
