Shipwreck dive in Bunaken

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.

It’s Not The Size That Matters

DSCF5162This week in Lembongan…. There is a lot more then just the big creatures here in Lembongan. To some divers it’s not the size that matters. Sadly it has been the motion of the ocean that has stopped us getting out to the manta spots this week but our dive guides have been finding lots of small creatures tucked away in the reef. Just like this goby fish sliding up and down the whip coral.

Turtle Town Around Bunaken

turtleTHIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN…. Fun divers are having turtle week and it seems like every dive site is turning into a turtle town around Bunaken. Everybody is commenting that many BIG turtles are swimming around and passing really close to the divers. They are certainly not afraid of cameras, which is the good thing for the people who like to take underwater photos. Thanks Geby & Hajo for the nice Turtle photo!

Cold Water And Creatures From The Deep

This weCold Water And Creatures From The Deepek in Lembongan…. The cold currents are starting to flow but this is not all bad, with these cold currents, creatures from the deep come up to greet our divers. Today at Crystal Bay, Open Water and Advance students and fun divers were all blessed with a Mola Mola swimming around. Laurent’s Mola Mola dance may have brought the Mola, but he was the only one who did not see.

Move Over Mola Mola I Am Trying To Do My Search Pattern

This weMove Over Mola Mola I Am Trying To Do My Search Patternek in Lembongan… As Divemaster Trainie, Yayan started his U-Pattern for his search and recovery dive, all of a sudden, out of the blue, emerges two buggy eyes and an white oval mouth. Instructor Bryce grabs Yayan’s arm, who is engrossed in his compass, to point out the Mola Mola coming over to have a look at what the humans are doing. Bryce could almost hear Yayan say, ‘Move over Mola Mola I am trying to do my search pattern’
