Hermit CrabThis week in Bunaken… The next time you pick up an empty shell on the beach and pocket it to take home, just think of all the hermit crabs that would have loved to move into such a nice home. That’s right, with more and more shells going as souvenirs to be placed on bookshelves, our dearly loved hermit crabs are experiencing the worst ever real estate crash here on Bunaken. Here’s a picture of a local hermit crab who still has his home (although a bit shabby looking). The photo was taken by our repeater guests from Germany – Mendy & Andreas.

Skeleton ShrimpThis week on Bunaken…. Some of the tiniest creatures known as skeleton shrimp are ready for Halloween here on Bunaken. Our guides are famous for finding the tiniest things underwater and there is no exception for this one. The skeleton shrimp is only millimetres long and completely transparent – they hang around on pieces of soft coral in a sort of praying mantis like way. The picture here is taken by our repeater guest Keith from New Zealand on one of his dives with Rolly. Nice job focusing on such a tiny and clear creature!

pilot whalesThis week in Bunaken…. Our divers on Bunaken have been super lucky to spot both a whale shark and a pod of pilot whales during the surface intervals of the two morning dives! The whale shark came very near to the Bethlehem boat on Sunday to show off to our divers while they were de-kitting. Then just this morning there was a large pod of pilot whales swimming just along the front of our boat Sylvia – one pilot whale was so huge and curious, he just hung out next to the boat with our divers looking on!

shipwreck in bunakenTHIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN… the ShipWreck dive was really nice with great viz and almost no current, so it was good dive for all the divers. This shipwreck has lot of life growing on it and supports many fish, such as a super cool Mappa Pufferfish sitting on the deck and greeting divers. Even after a few photo’s were taken of him he still did not move away, instead giving just a little waving to say hi. On the reef side of the wreck also had lot of cool little encounters like juvenile sweetlip, mantis shrimp, ornate ghost pipefish and scorpion fish.
