This week in Lembeh …. we have been cleaning up the oceans and leaving happy fish to enjoy cleaner waters. A Dive against debris organized by Georgia, as part of her DMT course, got the whole resort including all guests involved in helping our oceans. It was a great success and we want to thank everyone that participated!
This week in Lembeh… Pygmy Seahorses were just wrecked! Though it would be funny to see a drunk pygmy seahorse, they usually are just high on life but scattered throughout one of our shipwrecks. The Mawali wreck, an old Japanese cargo ship from the Second World War, has Bargibanti seahorses all over the place. That’s just one of many highlights that have got our guests asking to go.
This week in Lembeh we welcomed in the New Year watching a flashy firework display. Likewise the waters have exploded with their own firework display in the form of Nudibranch’s. It’s been a Nudi New Years so far, everything from Pikachu to Malibeh to Warty to Solar, and every color under the sun.
This week in Lembeh ….. Tigers roam free. Spiny Tiger shrimp have been seen on numerous dives here in the past week. All excited for the Christmas celebrations maybe. We have had some amazing dinners and enjoyed the company of the guests staying here.
This week in Lembeh….. we have been getting Christmas ready! Therefore its only fitting to have our DMT Pia find a living candy cane under water! Wunderpus-tastic.
This week in Lembeh… Guests have been raving about having seen too much. Hairy frogfish have been a highlight to Mickey, just the same for Zack and Laurie. Laurie brought home a photo of the hairy frogfish for her dad.
In Lembeh Pegasus is alive and well, although not in the form the Greeks imagined. Instead of the beautiful winged horse, which flies through the sky’s, it instead is an odd looking winged fish that waddles the sea floor.
Here in Lembeh, we have crabs. Though full of exotic fish and cephalopods, Lembeh offers a wide variety of crustaceans as well.
This week in Lembeh we have been seeing the flashy flamboyant cuttlefish on numerous dive sites. Enough to a point where some photographers no longer turn on their cameras for them. That’s saying something….
When you wish upon a star(gazer), wishes can come true. This has been proved time and time again here in the waters of Lembeh.
Lembeh is a great place to observe the Mandarin Fish and each week we take our divers over with the hope of getting a glimpse of their mating behaviour. This week we’ve had Mandarin Fish madness and the dive is as popular as ever!
This week in Lembeh we have had plenty of Frogfish including the elusive Randals, Lembeh Sea Dragons, all the variations of Ghost pipefish including Halimada and not to forget the many octopus that have been seen on all the dives, Wunderpus, Starry Night, Coconut, Mimic, and Hairy to name a few.
This week our guests have been having a Blueringed-tastic time in Lembeh, nearly every day we have been having sightings of these rare octopus. As well as these we have also been having a lot of the usual suspects as well, coconut, log arm, starry night, mimic and the lovely wunderpus octopus.
This week in Lembeh we’re having a Ghost Pipefish bonanza! The dive sites have gone crazy with them and we’ve seen all of the species known to this area.
This week in Lembeh we have been living up to our name with not one, but two of everything from our guest critter wish list! Some times we joke when people ask “Why the name Two Fish Divers” and we reply “Because we guarantee to show you at least two fish on every dive”! This is not the real idea behind the name but it is true this week 😉
When people say to us “Don’t show us any more Hairy Octopus” you know it’s been a great week of diving in Lembeh! This week in Lembeh our guests have been spoiled by the amazing critters coming out to play with the highlight being several sightings of Hairy Octopus and Velvet Ghost Pipefish.
This week in Lembeh we have been busy bees! In addition to a week of special critters and awesome night dives we have also had lots of students taking courses and held a clean-up dive!
This September 2014 Project Aware carries on the tradition of the whole month being Debris Month of Action, and at Two Fish we always support this. Not only during the month of September in fact, we organise clean-up dives all year round, but we up the game a little during September!
This week in Lembeh we have had a good time with the critters, as well as having a few return guests coming back.
For a couple of weeks already we have been feeling the temperature of the water drop in Lembeh, but don’t panic because cooler waters means lots of cool critters too!
Lembeh’s variety of critters never fails to disappoint, but this week the hype has been all about the nocturnal magic of the amazing night dives.
This week in Lembeh our attention has been somewhat diverted on a couple of occasions away from the tiny critters hiding in the muck… With a juvenile Whale Shark and a Guitar Shark both being seen you could say it’s been a week of unexpected creatures!
We can find Ghost Pipefish year-round in Lembeh but we do seem to experience seemingly random periods of high numbers of certain species. This week in Lembeh the Ornate Ghost Pipefish are popping up everywhere!
This week in Lembeh we have some first time muck divers and some familiar faces from previous visits, who say that Lembeh diving is better than ever! On the first day diving alone they spotted Blue Ringed Octopus, Wunderpus, Lembeh Sea Dragons, Frogfish and Seahorses!
