This week in Lembongan … we would like to welcome our new managers, Nat & Sandra. Read their own words below!
Hello! My name is Nat Rawson, and together with my wife Sandra Bruckmann, we are the new managers of Two Fish Divers on Nusa Lembongan.
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.
This week in Lembongan… Even though the mola season has been far from that of other years, they are still around. While diving this week at Crystal Bay, dive guides Murry and Tino were lucky enough to show one of these weird and wonderful creatures to their guests.
My last and final week of the divemaster trainee was in Lembongan, a small island across from Bali. The switch was a little unnatural at first but turned out to be an invaluable learning experience. Guiding guests diving in current, higher guests turn around, completely different conditions and aquatic life. Indeed, on our dive yesterday we saw TWELVE manta rays! Freaking amazing!!!
This week in Lembongan… An often over looked sea creature by experienced divers and a creature that our guides rarely point out. But very often while teaching PADI Open Water courses or diving with first time divers we get the full finger point and a shrug of the shoulders when passing by these strange sea cucumbers. Sea cucumbers come in many different colors, shapes and sizes, some very plain and others that look like something out of an alien movie.
This week in Lembongan… Was the end of our 3 Divemaster trainee’s time in Lembongan. Ben and Nicole were with us for just over 6 weeks. Ben came already certified as a Rescue diver and Nicole still needed to complete her Advance course and Rescue. After 2 weeks of training for Nicole and some fun diving for Ben, the two of them jumped into their Divemaster course. Scott was with us for just over 4 weeks and was also already Rescue certified. Once here, the 3 of them worked together very well through their Divemaster program and were a great help to the dive centre!
