We had a very interesting mix of people in Bunaken last week. See the picture with Li Lin Na and Luo Li who had a great time staying with us. Also, Debs and Mark, our new Lembeh managers were in Bunaken for some training to get ready for their new role. Have fun in Lembeh!
Our Michelle, our divemaster trainee tried out a sidemount configuration in the pool with Instructor Markus in Bunaken today. It was a lot of fun to do some “out of air” skills, taking of one tank and continue diving with the remaining tank. We also did some finning techniques.
The sidemound configuration originated amongst dry cave explorers in the UK in the 1960s after they approached underwater passages that hindered their progression. They used a minimalistic approach by using a cylinder mounted alongside their body.
