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.
This Week in Lembeh….Sheep Graze? A popular subject at the moment is the famous “Shawn the Sheep” more correctly known as a Sapsucking Slug (Costasiella). This little guy can be quite a tricky subject growing to an average size of about 7mm. Being that size obviously and smaller can make it tricky to fully see them in all their glory with just the naked eye. Either way it a great find and even better when a photo somewhat works out!
Time passes so fast here in Bunaken. I have been on this island for four weeks so far and I still love this place. I was quite busy with my Divemaster internship this week. I finished the DM manual and did the final exam. Theory is done The last two weeks I practiced the 24 Dive Skills several times with Dom in the pool. I could also see how the other two instructors are conducting the skills during the Open Water courses. So this week was my turn and my Dive Skills were scored by Ina.
