pontohi pygmy seahorseThis week in Bunaken… From having a couple of weeks of big stuff, this week has been one of awesome macro. Candy crab, crinoid shrimp, ornate ghost pipefish, painted frogfish, harlequin shrimp, tiger mantis shrimp and several types of  pygmy seahorse (Pontohi, Severn, Bargibanti) just to name a few. The seahorse in the picture is a Pontohi pygmy seahorse which was classified as its own species just seven years ago in 2008! Growing to a maximum size of 17 mm from nose to the tip of the tail we are happy our guides have the eagle eyes required to find them. Thank you Phil Clarke for the great photo!

devil ray This week in Bunaken… What an amazing week we’ve had! The afternoon dives have really rocked this week. Michel from Canada was out on a dive on Bunaken Timor II with divemaster Sandy when a gorgeous devil ray cruised by them almost within touching distance! They were so surprised that Michel only had time to take this one photo before it was gone. We rarely see devil rays here, but it also gave us a reminder to keep an eye out in the blue. Who knows what cruises by when we have our heads in the reef looking for small stuff. Maybe rearview mirrors on the mask can be an idea….

A week of big fish in BunakenThis week in Bunaken… Lots of sightings at the moment showing us that big fish is better! Dive guide Fenly and his group got a real treat this week when they had a 2 m marlin swooping past during a dive at Lekuan III. These impressive game fish are a rare sight for divers as they are pelagic and will leave anyone who sees them in awe.

Plastic bag vs turtleThis week in Bunaken… With the new year still young we got a reminder that it is more important than ever to look after our oceans and the amazing creatures who call it their home. Cara and Tarn from Australia enjoyed a dive with plenty of turtles around as usual here in Bunaken. Cara spotted a big turtle that was just about to take a big bite out of a jelly fish. The only problem was that the jelly fish was a plastic bag floating around in mid-water!

happy new year in bunaken (1 of 1)This week in Bunaken… Happy New Year everybody! Here in Bunaken we welcomed the new year with great fireworks on the beach in front of the cafe and the rain that had been on and off all day finally stopped to allow us a great celebration. Plenty of sparkles were passed around and in the photo you can see our tec instructor Dom trying to spell out Two Fish with a sparkle. Unfortunately it was only enough sparkle for “TWO” before it burned out! You get an A for effort though! Thank you Phil Clarke for the photo.
