The PADI Wreck Specialty is a fantastic course which, once completed, opens the door to truly magnificent wreck diving around the world. Big congratulations to Brent Heckendorf and Jackie Murray for finishing the PADI Wreck Specialty, despite a few frustrating days beached on land watching the calendar with a worried eye. However, an ear infection and a dwindling time schedule were not enough to deter Two Fish’s newest DMT’s from completing the Wreck Speciality on Lembeh’s famous Mawali Wreck.
Diving has traditionally been taught and done in teams or with a buddy. The rationale behind this is that adding another person automatically adds safety (as well as enjoyment) to the dive. However, we believe there are exceptions to the rule: situations in which Solo Diving – or knowing how to safely dive on your own – might be a great alternative.
It has been a Frogfish Frenzy in Lembeh this week! From big to small, from Hairy to Warty, from orange to black, and mated to single, I think we’ve seen a bit of it all! It hasn’t been only the variety of Frogfish that has impressed our Two Fish divers, but also the behaviors. Many of the Frogfish have been very active, awkwardly moving about the reef, chasing one another, chasing our divers (true story!), yawning and luring. Once again, Lembeh proves to be a Frogfish paradise!
It was an exciting week in Lembeh as Martin, a first time visitor to Lembeh, asked his girlfriend, Carola to marry him! He hired Two Fish Lembeh’s transport boat to take the two of them to a beautiful, private white-sand beach where they went for a long, romantic walk before asking the Big Question. She said “Yes”, of course, which makes Lembeh a very memorable place for the both of them! A huge congratulations to Martin and Carola from the whole Two Fish Divers crew.
While things around the resort calmed down a bit after Easter, our instructors Dion and Yvonne have been busy teaching right across the spectrum of PADI courses for the past few days. They’ve been introducing first time divers to the underwater world, explored shipwrecks and worked with our divemaster trainees to perfect their skills both underwater and on land. And they even managed to re-introduce a guest to the underwater world after a 13 year break who was most impressed by the number and size of turtles on our walls (picture by Alex Schade).
