Robyn and Scott have been staying with us for a while, and were gently encouraged to discover what technical diving has to offer.
Robyn and Scott are going to take over the management of our sister resort at Lembeh Straits, but whilst all the paperwork is being taken care of, they are taking advantage of the local diving and familiarising themselves with the Two Fish operation: including Tech diving at Bunaken.
The reef certainly does not sleep at night in Bunaken, though many of its residents do of course. Whilst the parrot fish and triggerfish find nooks and crannies to wedge themselves for a night’s rest a horde of other critters vacate their hiding places and swarm over the reef.
This week here in Belongas, South Lombok we have had the absolute pleasure of a visit from an Oceanic Manta! Having full boats all week with divers from the Gili Islands, U.K, France and Malaysia who all come from for Hammerheads and Mobula Rays were over the moon to run into the Manta.
Pi’I our Belongas guide says that this does happen so often usually about 3-4 times during the high season.
This week in Mainland Bali: We were super stoked to find a Stargazer in Padang Bai and that too during the day time.(Photo for reference only)The Stargazer is a fish that will bury itself in the sand to ambush its prey, when an unsuspecting fish swims over head it leaps out and drags it into the sand.
This week in Lembongan… On many of our dive sites around Penida and Lembongan we have Bali dive centers that take the journey across Badung Strait to bring their guests to dive our reefs. So we thought maybe we should do the opposite and head over to Bali to check out the diving there. For this trip we we loaded our boat Freedom with many tanks and a lunch and drinks and left Lembongan at 7.30am for a day trip to explore the famous Liberty wreck.
