This week in Bunaken… We did a small contribution to protecting the coral reefs around Bunaken this week with some underwater gardening – we were building coral reefs!

This week in Bali: We came across one of the special Padang Bai residents, a black Frogfish living under the jetty.
These little guys spend alot of their time just waiting for their next meal to swim by and when it does it only takes a split second to vanish into their mouths. They lure their meal with a modified fin which mimics the movement of small prey.
Belongas, South Lombok this week once again we have been blessed with company of Scalloped Hammerheads, 15 has been spotted whilst diving “The Magnet”. Corinne an Journalised from France who takes 3 months out a year to do underwater photography for her website was ecstatic seeing the Hammerheads as she had waited all year. While coming and diving with us in the Indian Ocean it is never guaranteed that we will spot what we have come for but when we do it is a feeling beyond explanation.
