This week in Lembongan… The strange green waters of the past weeks has finally cleared and we are back to the standard, 20 meters visibility that Lembongan is common for. Even the manta dive sites have cleared up with the average visibility being around 15 meters over the last few days.
The magnet has been showing us what she is made of this week. As you may know the magnet is a challenging dive site where only the more experienced divers may go but under the water she hides some of the best diving, hammer heads. White tip reef sharks barracudas, tunas, jacks and every know and then somthing extra special.
This week in Gili Air, North Lombok we have been cracking on with our free try dives in the swimming pool at Villa Karang, Gili Air. We have been in the water all week with beginners, as well as offering refreshers for divers that have been out of diving for a year or two.
Bali has once again shown its amazing diversity this week as our guests have seen everything from Thresher Sharks to Mimic Octopus when diving in Amed. With our new boat we are able to get to places that other centres cannot reach and it paid off for guest Barry and guide Bayu at one of the reef corners between here and Tulamben – while hanging out at 25m Bayu looked up and was pleasantly surprised to see a large Thresher Shark (Alopius Vulpinus) cruising slowly by – of course he immediately pointed it out to guest Barry who had Thresher Shark high up his bucket list. Tick!! Threshers are known for often being seen in deep water, so you can imagine the feelings of our technical diving manager who was at 50m on the same dive site at the same time but didn’t see it!
