It has been two fantastic weeks in Amed for my Divemaster course. Although the weather has not been great in the afternoon, the mornings were very sunny but the main thing is; there’s been no time for boredom.
Nusa Lembongan: (Nov 1st-21st)
3 weeks into our divemaster course and we are already saying goodbye to Nusa Lembongan, for now at least, to fly onto Manado and join the two fish crew in Bunaken. What an action filled, learning curve this past 3 weeks has been!
My last and final week of the divemaster trainee was in Lembongan, a small island across from Bali. The switch was a little unnatural at first but turned out to be an invaluable learning experience. Guiding guests diving in current, higher guests turn around, completely different conditions and aquatic life. Indeed, on our dive yesterday we saw TWELVE manta rays! Freaking amazing!!!
Today, I celebrated my 100th dive and the 3rd week of my divemaster training. Yeepee! Waking up at 5am to go to a dawn dive! That’s when you know you are really a diver. It was well worth it. The sunrise was bathing the sky in a soft pink color while the remnant of last night’s full moon was fading over the palm tree tops.mean, seriously, what more can you ask for your 100th dive? (apart for a shark and an eagle ray)
