Hadrian is our current Divemaster Trainee, and he joined our first trip to Tulamben. Here is his account:
On the speedboat the small group of 8 divers from all over the world share their excitation for this dive site that is world reknown. Is it because of the outstanding visibility and the rich exotic marine life, or because of the historical story of the shipwreck? Whatever the reason, everyone has smiles on their faces!
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN!!! WOW So we had our first excursion to Tulamben yesterday and that was a BIG success. Pygmy seahorse and ornate ghostpipefish to name some of the cool fish around that wreck.
We have had our first Nitrox course here in Lembongan and yesterday whilst one boat was at Tulamben having all kinds of wreck fun, another boat in local waters had 5 (thats 5!) Mola mola at Buyuk on Nusa Penidas north coast. It’s just too cool at the moment, too cool!
(ps thank you Steve for the pic of this guy!!)

THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN: Sachiko has been one big shark fest for our guests especially the afternoon dives where up to 9 black tips at a time have been seen! Also barracudas, jacks and pontoh sea horses have been sighted frequently. Plus it’s not just the ocean harvesting some cool critters – our land crabs have been out in force including this big beast caught on camera by karsten. Awesome!!

Lots of scorpion leaf fish in all ranges of colours, eagle rays, giant trevellies, schools of tuna down in the deep plus crocodile fish galore!! We don’t see many normally but this week they have been out in abundance including 4 hanging out together at Barracuda point. Thanks to Jimmy our DMT for this great shot! Crocodile fish can live to be 14 years old and start off entirely black before developing their amazing camouflage skin as adults!
