This week in Lembongan… We are starting our high season, and this year as previous years, we are having an increasing amount of visitors in our tiny paradise island. Curious about what is it that brings people over to Lembongan, we decided to go ahead and ask to some of those visitors the reasons why they included Lembongan in their holiday itinerary. The answers were so diverse that it surprised us! We thought it would be interesting to share some of these thoughts. Of course, manta rays and mola-mola or sunfish are some of the main reasons why divers come to Lembongan.
It has been a busy week with life-changing adventures for the 8 candidates doing our PADI Instructor Development Course in Lembongan. Over the last week and a bit, these 8 candidates have been working hard to get themselves prepared for becoming PADI instructors. Today is the first day of the PADI Instructor Exam, Mikko, Tristan, Flora, Nicole, Prashanti, Rhome , Sherrine and Matteo are all prepared for the two days of exams.
This week in Lembongan… We been seeing lots of manta rays at Manta Point and the water is getting a wee bit cooler. This week has also been really busy with lots of people coming asking about diving at the manta ray dive sites and we have been very lucky with seeing a lot of them at Manta Point.
This week in Lembongan… Our instructors have been busy teaching new students about the wonderful world of diving. We have had Rowan jumping between teaching an Open Water course with the help of Yayan, to teaching discover scuba divers. Bryce and Fred have been out panicking and screaming for help while teaching a rescue course. Yayan has popped over to Bali to teach another person Open Water course and Fred has just started a deep specialty course.
THIS WEEK IN LEMBONGAN…Mola mola. Our lucky divers were fortunate to see a mola mola yesterday. Great news as the sightings have been getting more regular. Mola season is almost upon us it seems. We have also been to see the mantas and caught sight of a shark or 2. Had some wonderful vis and drift diving along the north coast of Pendia where we saw some mantis shrimp, squat lobsters, baby seasnakes, big morays, nudis galore, orang utan crabs and just hundreds of fish!
Great week! how was yours?
