THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……… we found a clown frogfish in Bunaken, who says they are only in Lembeh! The weather has been really good and we have had visibility of 25m and more, maybe this is why we have been seeing lots of bigger things like Napoleon wrasse, Baracuda, Whitetip and Blacktip reef sharks, Eagle rays, Yellowfin & Dog-tooth Tuna, and schools of Big-eye Trevaly and Batfish.
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN…….the turtles have been out in force again with 10 turtles in one dive in Bunaken! Bunaken is generally quieter this week with uncrowded dive sites. The seas are still flat, but the rain is back for a shower around lunchtime and drying up before the afternoon dive.
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……a pod of Pilot whales came to hang out with the dive boat, with some whales passing under the boat giving the divers a great view. A dugong also popped his head up to take a look around, but didn’t stay. These experiences combined with sunny weather and calm seas have made for a very enjoyable week.
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……..we have been having a Seahorse week with both variety and abundance! We have seen Pontohi, Severns and Denise Pygmy Seahorses. We have also seen Candy, Boxer and Orangutang crabs, Leaf Scorpion fish, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Coral Shrimps, Black & White Tip Reef sharks, Napoleon Wrasse, Tuna, Barracuda, Giant Moray, Nudis including a Bullocki and of course Turtles.
We also welcome Azzura, who started her Dive master course this week and she joins Reto, who after a bit of an ear problem, is back in the water. He’s so happy! A big thanks to Tom for this photo of a Boxer Crab.
