THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN……HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
As well as seeing off our DMT Hadrien we have been up to a couple of spots on the North East coast of Penida. Great trip with insanely healthy coral, great fish and abundant marine life. Although it is seasons end now we saw a Mola Mola there too. Elsewhere we have had seasnakes, leaf scorpionfish, mantis shrimp, turtles and octopus.

21OCT12: We have been taking out Peter from Aquatice Alliance for more manta research, and the other day we did a double whammy of Manta Point and Manta Bay.
Manta Point provided a superb experience as we witnessed a manta mating train, this is the courtship ritual where a series of males follow a female around vying for her acceptance to mate with them. Manta Bay was consistent with some mantas on the surface which the guys were lucky enough to snorkel with.
On a previous trip we came across a heavily pregnant female. This is/was very exciting because it was thought that the birthing times was around august.
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…..Well we have been busy with courses and the diving has been good as always. Frogfish, Seasnakes, Leafscorpionfish, Molas, Mantas and a pod of dolphins that we managed to get a cheeky snorkel with.

Ed: As part of their manta research, Aquatic Alliance join our boat each time we go to Manta Point. On a recent trip they found a new adult manta and named it Jase of Spades in honour of our instructor Jason!
Hadrian is our current Divemaster Trainee, and he joined our first trip to Tulamben. Here is his account:
On the speedboat the small group of 8 divers from all over the world share their excitation for this dive site that is world reknown. Is it because of the outstanding visibility and the rich exotic marine life, or because of the historical story of the shipwreck? Whatever the reason, everyone has smiles on their faces!
