Sylvia Divemaster TraineeIn the last week of my course I found time to relax a bit and mix “business with pleasure”.  I made a creation to put into the artificial house reef and sunk it.

I particularly liked the scuba review: all of a sudden you’re the one that’s  teaching skills to others. Realising this put a smile on my face and I had a great time doing it.

Imogen Divemaster InternMy last week and a half (yes, I extended my stay by six days because I couldn’t bear to leave) in Lembeh has been absolutely fantastic. I got the rest of my course requirements completed – guiding certified divers, scuba review, assisting on continued education and my skills and rescue assessment.

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.

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!
