So Here I am in Bunaken Island and after a little over a week and I can tell you I have survived! You can say I have thrown myself into the deep end with this my first days of diving were straight to learning a rescue course then starting on my Divemaster training with Instructor Markus and the other DMT Romana (who is at a similar level of experience to myself).
Many people ask us at Two Fish what is the best time of the year to visit Nusa Lembongan. As locals who live here there is no clear answer to this, because it depends on what you are looking for. Do you want to have sunshine all day long? Do you want to avoid the crowds? Or do you want to see mola molas or mantas?
Every season on Lembongan has its particular charm and only you can decide what’s suits you best. Hopefully, this overview will help you to choose when to visit our special island.
It is great to see what can be achieved if everybody works together! We had an amazing combined effort to do a beach clean up at Bunaken village and the divesite Muka Kampung on the reef in front of the village. The dive resorts Siladen resort, Cakalang resort, Cica Senang and Two Fish Divers supplied the boats and divers and the people from Bunaken village cleaned up the beach. The 30 divers alone collected an astonishing 200 kg of debris in the 60 min dive!
