This week on the North Gilis, Lombok we have been finding Nemo on various Dive sites around Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan. For beginners and some experience divers they are a real treat just like the juvenile yellow boxfish. These false clown anemone fish are in a lot of places around here. We have our residents at the dive site called “Turtle Heaven” that hang around in their anemone home up on the marlin hill. Unfortunately for this family the anemone has been bleached earlier this due to high temperature waters.
Nusa Lembongan: (Nov 1st-21st)
3 weeks into our divemaster course and we are already saying goodbye to Nusa Lembongan, for now at least, to fly onto Manado and join the two fish crew in Bunaken. What an action filled, learning curve this past 3 weeks has been!
This week in Lembongan… The mola season may officially be over and it was not what we were all expecting but we have had a surprise turn of events this week, with our divers spotting 2 molas on 2 different dives through and another dive centre spotting 4 molas together on 1 dive. This is not to say that the mola season is coming late, but great to see that some are still around.
This week on the Gilis, north Lombok we have been spotting a few more Ribbon Eels than usual. We see them a couple of times a week usually at various dive sites but this week it has been almost every dive. And this variation is the most common here.
We see the black and yellow sometimes as well as an albino one which has been spotted at Frogfish Point a couple of times.
