Imogen Divemaster InternI arrived in Lembeh after a very easy transfer and was shown around by the other DMT here, Sylvia. A few guests who had been in Bunaken with me had come to Lembeh and everyone is lovely so I felt very welcome and almost like I had not moved location at all.

Sylvia Divemaster TraineeTo summarize my second week in Lembeh: it was very busy, tons of fun, in some times very disgusting (but rewarding) and I learned a lot.

The week started off with a beach clean up. When we came up from a dive on the house reef that morning, a truckload of rubbish had washed up on the beach. So during our service interval we organised a spontaneous beach clean up. In the afternoon we sorted everything (this was obviously the disgusting part) and collected data to send to Project Aware. We collected 53 kilo’s of trash, mainly consisting of plastic drinking cups (approx. 1000) and food wrappers. We did also find a yellow plastic rooster, a toy truck, 3 diapers and other weird stuff.

Karoline Divemaster InternMy DM internship is slowly coming to an end. I had a great last week.

We had an Open Water Course with three participants going on and I was able to assist in it. So great to see the big steps the students took during their course. I’m now done with all the exams, swimming tests and so on. Just some little bits and pieces missing, those we will do today or tomorrow and then my DM internship will be over.

Imogen Divemaster InternMy second week in Bunaken went far too quickly for my liking. I enjoyed a range of things from fun dives where I saw lots of beautiful marine life including many turtles, a bamboo shark and a pontohi pygmy seahorse to doing equipment repairs with the head dive guide, John.

Sylvia Divemaster TraineeAfter I arrived, I had a day of fun diving. It was a really nice day with 3 spectacular dives: 2 Bargibanti Pygmee’s on the first, 5 (yes five) frogfish on the second and a pygmee squid, which I had never seen before. And than the night dive at Jahir: in the first ten minutes we were so lucky to see: a stargazer, a reptilian snake eel and a bobbit worm (also a first for me J). And even though that was amazing it didn’t stop. We also saw 4 coconut octopuses, 2 ambon scorpionfish, 2 frogfish, another stargazer and many more critters. What a great welcome back!
