This week’s diving in Bunaken had something for both macro fans and lovers of big marine life – our guests saw Pontohi Pygmy Seahorses as well as increasing numbers of Spotted Eagle Rays.
Thanks to our eagle-eyed dive guides Frankli and Fenly, Mads from Denmark managed to get the fabulous shot for this blog. These miniature seahorses are fairly rare and we don’t have a lot of information about them. They’ve been spotted in (eastern) Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.
January blues? Not in Bunaken!Statistically speaking, this week is when most people around the globe are hit by the so-called January blues – but not our team in Bunaken.
Granted, this is one of the quieter times of the year, but with guests completing three dives a day, our dive guides are still busy looking for creatures large and small. What’s even better is that with fewer divers around we have a good chance to have our chosen dive sites all to ourselves – plenty of time to hang out with Napoleon wrasse, watch our favourite sea turtles munch away in the morning and search for smaller critters.
This Week in Lembeh … all Critters have Eggs in Lembeh, and sometimes it takes a camera to spot them!
Have you ever reviewed your dive photos only to notice something in your photos that you completely missed in person? That is one of the many reasons I enjoy underwater photography so much: it allows you to see things post-dive that may not be easily apparent to the naked eye.
On your next dive holiday to Indonesia you will definitely bump into at least two types of sea turtles, the Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle.
We get both types of these sea turtles at all of our dive locations in Indonesia.
To ensure that you get the most out of your encounter with these beautiful and gentle creatures here is some facts about them, some tips on how to tell them apart and some pointers on how to interact with them.
