Well done to AMALIA ANDAYANI who just finished her PADI Open Water course yesterday with PADI Instructor Dion at Bunaken. Today she is now ready for some fun dives. It was a great course with sightings of big turtles, scorpionfish, lionfish, napoleon wrasse, and the pontohi seahorse. However, there was one thing that Amalia did not like to see – the reef sharks!
