I can’t believe it has been 10 days since I arrived in Northern Sulawesi! Echo, one of the drivers from Two fish, welcomed me with a big smile on his face at the airport. He brought me to the harbor, where I jumped on a speedboat to Bunaken.
It’s been a fantastic past few weeks here in Bunaken. I did eventually conquer my ear infection, and since then we’ve been diving just about every day on my Divemaster course – heaps of diving!
Every year on April 22, over a billion people in 190 countries take action for Earth Day, and here at Two Fish Divers we decided to do have TRIPLE WHAMMY EARTH-DAY ACTIVITES! This meant collecting rubbish from the beaches and the sea around all three of our resorts across Indonesia at the same time, our small contribution to inspiring awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment.
BUNAKENOn Earth-Day we planned a clean up of the Crown of Thorns-Starfish at one dive site in Bunaken. The COTs feed on hard coral and their polyps and an adult sea star can destroy about 6 square meters of living reef per year.
Yeahhh! It’s done, I’m officially a PADI Divemaster. This last week just flew by and the time was over so very fast.
This week we gained a lot speed, I finished my theory and passed both the exams, yeah!
