 Megan Lennon Two Fish Divers Lembeh has been having a busy week with courses but is so happy to announce that the First PADI Muck Diver Course also took place this week!

Megan was first to sign up and then her friend Julianne decided to come along for the fun as well! Both currently living and working in Indonesia – Megan and Julianne are really making the most of the world-class diving that this area has to offer and after diving round Bali and Bunaken, they fancied trying out Muck Diving in Lembeh (where else? It is the best place in the world!)

Not knowing what to really expect from Muck Diving, when they read about the course that we (Helen & Gizmo) had written and they decided this would be the ideal course for them to take. We spent time perfecting buoyancy skills and then Julianne Reynoldson the second dive we were busy identifying symbiosis and different types of Muck Diving critters!

The critters were also out in force for the first Muck Diver course – we saw loads of Ambon Scorpion, Stargrazer, Wonderpus, Devil Ray, Juvenile Batfish, Frogfish…the list goes on and on…….

Two Fish Divers Lembeh wants to congratulate again Keno on completing his Junior Open Water Course with us this week. keno Keno and his Dad Ben are regular visitors to our Bunaken Resort but decided to start this trip a little differently be coming to Lembeh to do some Muck Diving and also to have Keno do his Open Water Dives.

Keno completed the skills and classroom sections of the course back home in Switzerland so only had to complete the 4 Open Water Dives. Having been around diving for so long, it wasn’t a surprise that he took to it like ‘ a duck to water’ as us English people would say.  He flew through all the skills like a little pro and got to see some pretty cool critters – Leaf Scorpionfish, Pegasus Sea Moths, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Waspfish and lots more.

We would like to wish Keno and Ben many happy dives together!

nick c They are probably going to kill me for putting their PIC pictures onto the Internet but Two Fish Divers Lembeh wanting to pass their congratulations to Nick and Zina for completing not just one or two PADI Specialties but 4 with us in the space of 5 days! Zina

It was pretty intense few days which started with an afternoon of Enriched Air Theory which ended with them both passing the exam with over 85%! The next day we started on the Search and Recovery course – which I really enjoy teaching! It is amazing how excited you can get that you have found a lost weight belt.

Over their stay we also did the Night Diver Specialty – one dive we did even incorporated some search and recovery skills they had learnt as another guest had lost their camera on the house reef. Sadly we weren’t able to find it but on this dive and the other night dives we saw Giant Spanish Dancers, Sponge Crabs, Cuttlefish, Octopus, Seahorses, Flatheads – the list goes on!

The final Specialty was the Wreck  Specialty where we had some awesome dives on both the Mawali and Kapal Indah wrecks. They both really enjoyed the dive on the Kapal Indah wreck with its beautiful Pygmy Seahorses (they come in Pink, Purple and Yellow) and nudibranches. Safety stopping over some corals in the shallows we spent some time with a gorgeous Pinnate Batfish. They also completed three dives on the Mawali wreck culminating in a penetration dive on Enriched Air – cool!

Again we would like to congratulate them on working so hard and getting everything completed in such a short space of time. It was a pleasure to have you guys to stay!

If anyone else in interested any course from Open Water to Instructor or Enriched Air to Muck Diver then please just drop us an email on either diving@twofishdivers.com or helen@twofishdivers.com .

Come to Two Fish Divers Lembeh and complete a course that you can not do anywhere else in the world (well at the moment!) – Yes you heard me right! Here at Two Fish Lembeh we have written and will be teaching our very own Muck Diver Specialty course! 

If you have never been Muck Diving then this is the course for you, we’ll give you an introduction to Muck Diving and what it entails and then over a couple of dives teach about good diving techniques that would be favourable for you to use in Muck Diving areas and also an introduction to Critter Identification which is all important when diving here in Lembeh – knowing where and how to find the critters is extremely important!!

Also along the way we can give you tips and pointers on how to make the most of your dive experience.

If you would like to know more about this course (or any other courses or just about staying with us!) then please email either Helen (helen@twofishdivers.com) or Gizmo (gimzo@twofishdivers.com) .

All at Two Fish Divers Lembeh would like to congratulate Lucy who has just IMG_5730completed both her Open Water Course and Advanced Open Water course with us!!

Lucy got the diving bug within the first couple of hours and really  loved completing the Open Water Course – however she wasn’t too fond of the compass skills! She took to like a ‘duck to water’ and managed to perfect her buoyancy pretty quickly! 

After completing the Open Water and celebrating with a couple of Bintangs, Lucy decided to also complete her Advanced Open Water Course with Helen ( her own personal instructor!).

Wanting to fine-tune her buoyancy more we completed the Peak Performance Dive and then also got to use some of these skills on the Underwater Photography dive! Lucy was so lucky to be able to get photos of 2 Hairy Frogfish and a Shaggy Frogfish on this dive! She took the Deep and Navigation Dives within her stride and finish all the skills with ease! To complete her Advanced Course we went on a IMG_5727awesome Night Dive to Jahir – we were joined by squid, sponge crabs and a huge Common Reef Octopus just to name a few!

She set sail to enjoy some more fun dives at our resort in Bunaken and we wish her all the best in her travels and would love to see her back here soon!
