THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN……… we found a clown frogfish in Bunaken, who says they are only in Lembeh! The weather has been really good and we have had visibility of 25m and more, maybe this is why we have been seeing lots of bigger things like Napoleon wrasse, Baracuda, Whitetip and Blacktip reef sharks, Eagle rays, Yellowfin & Dog-tooth Tuna, and schools of Big-eye Trevaly and Batfish.
OCTOPUS COME OUT TO PLAY IN LEMBONGAN
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…… Randy, one of our professional dive guides, has had the lucky wandering eye this week, picking out the rare juvenile Scorpion Leaf Fish, quite a few turtles and a large octopus out for a swim. We have also seen Nudibranchs, Candy Crabs, Porcelain Crabs and Orang Utan Crabs.
We have had some quite spectacular waves on the south side of the island which has only enhanced the excitement and adventure of finding Manta Rays. With many of our guest cursing the waves to spot the beautiful giants while snorkel. One trip was lucky enough to encounter 7 Manta Rays at Manta Bay.
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN…….the turtles have been out in force again with 10 turtles in one dive in Bunaken! Bunaken is generally quieter this week with uncrowded dive sites. The seas are still flat, but the rain is back for a shower around lunchtime and drying up before the afternoon dive.
THIS WEEK IN LEMBEH… We found a Sargassum Frogfish at Hairball hiding in a piece of trash! Normally these are found floating with seagrass just under the surface and we often see them from the shore at the resort when cleaning up surface debris, so this was an unusual to find one completely underwater!
