This week in Lembongan… Another busy week on our little island. We have had two full boats going out every day. Temperatures in the south of the island have dropped and our divers were happy that we rent out 5mm full wetsuits to keep them warm and cozy. We all like to wear wetsuits nowadays for diving. But how does a wetsuit really keep you warm?
This week in Lembongan. Calm seas have allowed us to visit the Mantas quite frequently and our divers enjoyed a lot of time with this beautiful creatures. Some of them were lucky enough to even see Mantas and Molas on the same day and to top that off they spotted dolphins on the surface just a few meters from our boat. So we had a lot of happy faces from our guests at lunch.
This Week in Bali, it seems like the cleaning station at Manta point has a lot of dirty Mantas coming in for a clean.
It almost feels like being in a manta soup when you have 7-8 manta rays circling around the cleaning station at Nusa Penida, all of them coming in to get rid of their little parasites that make a great meal for the hungry little cleaner wrasse that call the cleaning station at Manta Point their home.
This week in Lembongan…. We have many return guests again. Nadine and Flavia, who did their Open Water Course with Karoline in March, just came back. Flavia is back now to do her PADI Advance, while Nadine is completing her PADI Rescue course. As an instructor it is great to see that people enjoy this sport as much as we do and want to progress and become better divers.
The first fortnight of my DM training as come to a close, along with my time on Nusa Lembongan. It’s with mixed feelings that I head to Two Fish on Bunaken to continue the course: excitement at experiencing new dive sites and working with different instructors yet a sadness in saying goodbye to the fantastic team here, just as I had begun to settle in and get to know everyone and how things work.
