I have spent this week of my Dive Master Training in Lembeh, and it has been a wonderful experience! I haven’t worn shoes since I’d arrived and I had 4 dives every day, so full of amazing creatures and spotting a hairy octopus and seeing a blue ring has made it the even better!
Maddi’s first divemaster trainee blog WOOHOO! I’ve started my Divemaster in the centre of the Indo-Australian archipelago- Bunaken Island, North Sulawesi. Arriving on day 1 to a bunch of friendly faces was a comforting feeling as a solo backpacker, and with a few welcome drinks at night I couldn’t wait for the next day to see the dive sites.
This week on the Gilis, north Lombok we have been spotting a few more Ribbon Eels than usual. We see them a couple of times a week usually at various dive sites but this week it has been almost every dive. And this variation is the most common here.
We see the black and yellow sometimes as well as an albino one which has been spotted at Frogfish Point a couple of times.
