Bouyancy is one of the central aspects of fun diving on Nusa Lembongan, or taking the PADI Open Water and PADI Advanced Open Water dive courses. Here are 5 tips for better bouyancy we find especially useful. Tip #1: Bouyancy by relaxing and breathing It sounds so simple, but when there are mantas in the…
This week in Lembongan we had a very memorable dive with a cute little thornback cowfish hovering over some corals in Crystal Bay, and is the first time I saw one. The little cowfish looks a little bit like a juvenile boxfish and gets its name from the two horns on top of its head,…
It’s been a busy week here in Lembeh!
The dinner tables are almost at full capacity and we have a fantastic mix of guests. It’s lovely to spend the festive period with new friends from all across the globe, each with their own stories and experiences and of course, words of advice about diving and underwater exploration.
On Gili Air this week we have had our resident Mr Daniel Swahn still with us. Daniel is from Sweden and checked into Gili Air back on the 19th September and so far he has completed his Open Water Course, a few fun dives, Advanced course and is now onto his rescue. He is fully addicted and really has become a team member with us here at Divezone. Sadly he will be off to Gili Meno tomorrow for a few days but it is highly likely that he will be back.
This week at Two Fish divers Amed, we were very busy with lots of fun divers and courses. Our boat was full every day, so we had to organize daily trips from shore. We would like to highlight some of our best trips in Amed : Night diving on the USAT Liberty shipwreck and see the Bumphead parrotfish.
This week on the North Gili’s, Lombok we have been out every day on the boat we have managed to visit a variety of sites this week.
Diving around Gili Trawangan we often spot White tip reef sharks, black tips and Jacks. The white tip reef sharks around here are generally extremely lazy, we find them hanging out under rocks of slowly swimming around, which is great for those who like taking pictures as they can generally get a clear shot. As for the black tips and jacks they are a bit faster cruising around the reefs.
This week in Amed, Two Fish Divers did lots of dives in Tulamben. The bumphead parrotfishes are back. The bumphead parrotfishes are the biggest of their species. They are quite easy to spot in Coral Garden at any time.
Are we teaching orang-utans to dive underwater in Bunaken? Not just yet, but we’ve been spotting plenty of orangutan crabs (picture by Alex Schade) this week. And what a busy time it has been, thanks to an Indonesian bank holiday. Instructors and dive guides got plenty of in-water time and all of our boats were called on, too. The result? Lots of smiling divers and many congratulations all around as we’re adding more certified divers to the underwater world.
In Bunaken this week, we couldn’t decide where to look – the blue for big stuff or the reef for small creatures. There have been plenty of both, including another Mola-Mola sighting! And just as our dive manager and instructor Dion is off to get to know our Bali and Lombok dive centres better, we’ve been busy teaching PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses.
Cuttlefish’s eyes are speculated to be fully developed before birth and start observing their surroundings while still in the egg, and may prefer to hunt the prey they saw before hatching.
