Open water divers with Two Fish

At the Gilis, Gili Air North Lombok this week, we had our first Open water divers that came out from a try dive!!

Katie and Mike from the UK were by the pool relaxing as I approached offering a free scuba try out. They said they had always wanted to try but never had the chance and were a bit scared. So in the pool we went with the basic knowledge and a briefing on what we will do. Both were brilliant, no problems at all.

Bobbit Worm sightings on Lembeh night divesBobbit Worm sightings in Lembeh night dives are not uncommon, but this week’s Bobbit Worm sighting was ridiculously cool! Our guests came across two different Bobbit Worms that were both spewing white gunk into the water column. Thinking it was a defense mechanism, the divers were annoyed that it “screwed up their photo opportunity”. Little did they know, these Bobbit Worms were spawning, which is an extremely rare sight in Lembeh! Bobbit Worms are broadcast spawners, which means that Bobbit Worms release their sperm and eggs into the water column all at the same time, resulting in successful fertilization within the water column (rather than within the animal).

Two Fish Bunaken adopted the dive site ‘Muka Kampung’We became an ambassador in the ‘Project Aware’ initiative and adopted the dive site in Bunaken, ‘Muka Kampung’.

Marine debris is the rubbish of our everyday lives, it travels over land, down streams, rivers and storm drains to the ocean. It can drift thousands of miles leaving a wake of destruction in its path. Every year, debris kills thousands of marine animals and sea birds, chokes coral reefs, smothers critical environments and contaminates our beaches and recreation sites. Better information about sources and impacts is extremely important to drive changes in infrastructure and waste management policies. Who is responsible? All of us. Together we can help prevent and clear up this mess for a clean, healthy ocean planet.

Giant morays in North Lombok

This week in the North Gilis, Lombok the wind and waves have picked up over the last two days but the diving has continued. The visibility is ranging from 8-15 meters.

The north gilis are known for their island life from a nice relaxed holiday to a party time on gili Trawangan, but the diversity of sea life is also something to be famous for. We have been bumping into a lot of moray eels this week, especially the giant morays. We often find them peaking out of rocks and corals and when we are truly lucky we can find them in action on their hunt for food. The Giant morays here come in all shapes and sizes partnered with relatives from the snowflake morays, white eyed morays, garden and ribbon eels, and the fibrillated morays.
