This week we get into the details of the PADI TEC 50 course to plan advanced dive profiles using air/EANx/oxygen for accelerated decompression. This is the fourth in a series of articles exploring the PADI Tec Deep Course: the first article provided an overview of the PADI Tec Deep Course; the second article explored the details of the PADI TEC 40, considered to be the gateway into TEC diving; and the third article explored the details of the PADI TEC 45 course for extending your depth and time using 100% nitrox.
|This week in Lembeh we’ve seen quite a few TINY Flamboyant Cuttlefish which must mean that some of the eggs that we’ve been seeing on several sites have hatched! We’ve been seeing plenty of adults in the past weeks but it’s a real treat to see the freshly hatched ones too!|
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…It’s been amazing again with Mantas in Lembongan. Mantas were in both Manta sites and in a good number. The visibility was good and temperature 30 degrees. MOLA MOLA came to say Hi to our French group. Then Mantis, Shrimp, Swimmer crabs, tones of Nudibranch, Ribbon Eel, Bamboo Shark, Scorpion Fish, Lion Fish, Octopus…
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……a pod of Pilot whales came to hang out with the dive boat, with some whales passing under the boat giving the divers a great view. A dugong also popped his head up to take a look around, but didn’t stay. These experiences combined with sunny weather and calm seas have made for a very enjoyable week.
Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day, and here at Two Fish Divers we decided to do have TRIPLE WHAMMY EARTH-DAY ACTIVITES! This meant collecting rubbish from the beaches and the sea around all three of our resorts across Indonesia at the same time, our small contribution to inspiring awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.
BUNAKENOn Earth-Day we planned a clean up of the Crown of Thorns-Starfish at one dive site in Bunaken. The COTs feed on hard coral and their polyps and an adult sea star can destroy about 6 square meters of living reef per year.
