Time is running fast when you are having a great time and that has been unfortunately so true for me. After the first three weeks of my Divemaster training on Bunaken, I really was not ready to leave for Nusa Lembongan. It was not easy all the time, I have learned a lot from my instructors Markus and Dion. Neither of them given up with me, even when I gave them hard time. Like during my first attempt to guide the night dive I kicked Markus on the head so many times he spent the next morning searching the internet for a suitable helmet. When I finally got on the boat to Manado there might have been some tears of sadness (or relief from Markus and Dion). But joking aside I loved diving and living on Bunaken, it was an amazing stay and I will always remember the amazing people I met. Thanks again guys.
Many people ask us at Two Fish what is the best time of the year to visit Nusa Lembongan. As locals who live here there is no clear answer to this, because it depends on what you are looking for. Do you want to have sunshine all day long? Do you want to avoid the crowds? Or do you want to see mola molas or mantas?
Every season on Lembongan has its particular charm and only you can decide what’s suits you best. Hopefully, this overview will help you to choose when to visit our special island.
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!
This week in Lembongan… The mola season may officially be over and it was not what we were all expecting but we have had a surprise turn of events this week, with our divers spotting 2 molas on 2 different dives through and another dive centre spotting 4 molas together on 1 dive. This is not to say that the mola season is coming late, but great to see that some are still around.
