Diving in Nusa Lembongan This Week

10171741_10152155266239317_1209614107_nIt has been another epic month here when diving in Nusa Lembongan, the oceans have been gifting us with all sorts of wonders. Over at Manta Point there have been so many manta’s coming in to feed and be cleaned giving all the divers amazing close encounters 20 plus with each visit! At the north end of Nusa Penida we have also been very lucky with sightings of the magnificent Mola Ramsiay cruising along the reef only at 20m deep but we have also been treated to a very very rare sighting of a Thresher Shark, which is typically a very deep water shark only occasionally coming up to the shallow waters to be cleaned!!

PADI instructor course and internship of Roya in Bunaken

Roya's Instructor course and internship in BunakenAs my PADI instructor course and internship at Two Fish Divers in Bunaken comes to a close, I can’t help but look over this past month and realize how much I’ve learned and experienced in such a short period of time. In a lot of ways, it feels like it’s been so much longer than a month. But of course in other ways it feels like it’s been only a couple days.

This week in Bunaken we’re starting our first PADI IDC of the year

Instructor Development Course September 2014

Emergency First Response Instructor Course 1It’s September and it’s that time of the year again! The PADI Instructor Development Course has just begun with PADI Course Director Marlies Lang here at Two Fish Divers Bunaken. A frequent visitor to Two Fish Divers, James, has put himself up to the challenge of becoming a PADI instructor. He’s only just started this journey a few days ago, beginning with his Emergency First Response (EFR) Instructor course. Here’s a sneak peak into some of the seriously fun times he had during his EFR Instructor course. His students, Marlies, Ken and Sandy weren’t the sharpest to begin, but he James helped correct their mistakes. Can you find what was being done wrong?
