This week, our dive guide Andy was proofing his ability to spot the smallest and most amazing creatures you can find here on the Gili Islands like winged pipefish, hairy shrimps, ghost pipefish and some amazing looking nudibranchs. And of course, the usual encounters with black tip reef sharks, white tip reef sharks and some…
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 in Amed, Two Fish Divers organized lot of dive trips in Padang Bay. Padang Bay muck diving is comparable to Lembeh. Our fun divers Rob and Peter joined the trip, because they are macro lovers. They could go on the dive site Jetty and spot lots of critters such like frogfishes, gurnard lionfishes or ghost pipefishes.
This week, instructors Kate and Kuss have been so busy with PADI courses they needed a little support from centre manager George, who didn’t hesitate a second and swapped spreadsheets for scuba kit. The reward? Whitetip and blacktip reef sharks, batfish, frogfish and so much more.
After a few days of fun diving and completing his PADI EFR and Rescue course in Bunaken, Tristan has now embarked on his Divemaster course here at Two Fish Divers, which will also take him to our Lembeh resort in a few weeks. Until then, he’s getting to grips with dive logistics, among other things.
So there I was, my first day after arriving in Nusa Lembongan, sweating, thirsty and in need of an ice cold coconut to rehydrate the never ending perspiration that comes with living in Indonesia, i was ready to start what can only be described as a life altering course.
I had been her for 5 weeks prior to this, travelling, surfing and the inevitable dose of party thrown in the mix. Deciding to do my Rescue course, and further than that, my DMT with Two fish in Lembongan was a decision I had been weighing up for almost two months and now it was to become my reality.
Week 3 of my dive master training was full of tests and assessments, in the water and on land.
One experience that stands out is the equipment exchange underwater which would be a little tricky even without instructors causing a few extra problems. Not to mention underwater mapping which is definitely a fun experience – you think you’ve drawn the dive site on your underwater slate and then you look at it on the surface and can’t make sense of it!
Its our low season so this gives us time to do some staff training, and today saw all our diveguides in Bunaken getting their rescue skills refreshed with Padi instructors Dion and Mesak. Great fun as well!
Congrats to Kristoffer who has just completed his EFR and Rescue course with us in Lembongan. He’s continuing on to do his Divemaster internship with us, welcome to the next step Kris! This is an exhausted Kris with instructor Jason. Find out more about doing your PADI Rescue Diver Course in Lembongan. Also, check out last…
If you ask any Rescue Diver they will tell you that its the most challenging course they have done. The training provided by rescue certification is not so much about actually rescuing people but more about increasing your own comfort level in the water, it therefore teaches divers how to be better divers.
