THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…WOW! Mola Mola and Mantas to keep people happy, snorkelling with dolphins, A big giant frogfish, leaf scorpionfish and around at Manta Bay, Jaseofspades came over to say hi to his daddy (adopted daddy and namesake!). Good times!
Find out more about diving with Jase of Spades in Lembongan with us.
Ed: As part of their manta research, Aquatic Alliance join our boat each time we go to Manta Point. On a recent trip they found a new adult manta and named it Jase of Spades in honour of our instructor Jason!
Our final IDC of the year was recently held 26 Sept-7 Oct IDC. We only had 2 candidates, and they were therefore lucky to have the Course Director all to themselves. Congratulations Arto and Jimmy for successfully finishing your IDC!
Whats great about doing the IDC with us in Bunaken is that the diving is so good, and after the IDC both of them had a well deserved rest and went diving. Arto decided to take it a step further and had a try-dive on a CCR rebreather, another advantage of doing your IDC with a center that is also a PADI TECRec Center!
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN: We congratulate Arto and Jimmy who finished their IDC yesterday and wish them all the best for the IE tomorrow. Check out the pic of Arto diving with a CCR – he loved the quiet, no bubbles experience!! Also this week barracudas galore on the day trip, lots of sharks, schools of tuna, pontohi sea horses and some devil rays!
THIS WEEK IN LEMBEH…Blue Ringed Octopus are out in force along with Wonderpus, Pontohi Pygmy Seahorse, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Giant, Painted and Hairy Frogfish, and the ultimate of the Lembeh hairy creatures – the Hairy Octopus Plus, where are all of these humungous Stonefish coming from?

On September 28th, for the first time ever, all three of our resorts combined to do a simultaneous Dive Against Debris in support of Project Aware’s Debris Month of Action. This is what we are calling our Dive Against Debris – Triple whammy clean-up!
All of our joint efforts managed to bring in an amazing 677 kilos of marine debris, collected from sites in Bunaken, Lembeh and Nusa Lembongan.
