SRWe have had a burst of specialty courses at Bunaken this week; our dive master in training Guillermo has been completing his Fish ID, underwater Naturalist, and Search and Recovery courses. He has been joined by Scott who arrived last week from Lembeh to start his Divemaster course, Scott has completed his Search and Recovery, Nitrox and Deep specialties and we have a guest from Belgium, Manu who joined in and has completed his Drift and Deep. Fair play guys for continuing with your dive education; though going on a certain final search and recovery dive there is still a bit of education to go! Luckily they are still with us for a few more weeks. Congratulations too go out to Ellen, also from Belgium, who completed her Open Water course with Dion.

Bamboo sharkIt has been an elasmobranch week at Bunaken. In particular our deep divers Danny and Rachel were lucky enough to have sharks and rays on almost every dive this past week. Danny even lucked out and had an encounter with a scalloped hammerhead at 50m.

All the action wasn’t happening down deep though, we had an unusual visit from a brown banded bamboo shark, which had found a nice hole to hide out in on Lekuan Dua. Also the usual suspects of white tips, black tips, eagle rays and the abundant blue spotted ribbon tail rays kept everyone happy.
