This was an exciting week with lots of work. I finally know my way around and know what I’m supposed to do (at least most of the time). I was able to join Heskiel one of our staff on his first open water dive, what a treat, he showed me about 3 nudibranches. I went on two or three more dives with him and he does have good eyes, always showing me all kinds of stuff.
I arrived in Bunaken after 24 hours of travelling. So very tired but at the same time very excited to be here…
When arriving it was just getting to know all the surroundings and how things work. On the first “real” day here it was just two fun dives and getting to know the procedures.
Being a Divemaster-in-training has been more challenging than I anticipated, but I’m also learning a lot more about different types of diving, dive operations, and teaching divers than I thought I would.
On September 28th, for the first time ever, all three of our resorts combined to do a simultaneous Dive Against Debris in support of Project Aware’s Debris Month of Action. This is what we are calling our Dive Against Debris – Triple whammy clean-up!
All of our joint efforts managed to bring in an amazing 677 kilos of marine debris, collected from sites in Bunaken, Lembeh and Nusa Lembongan.
As part of Project Aware’s Debris Month of Action, our team in Bunaken took to the seas armed with trash bags and hauled in over 197kg of trash! Well done guys!!
