Two Fish in Nusa Lembongan, BaliWe are very pleased to announce that we have opened a new resort in Bali! We are open for resort guests right now and our dive operations will start in early-June 2012.

This means that from June 2012, you can enjoy an Indonesian dive safari with one operator offering some of the best diving in the world in Indonesia – Bali, Bunaken AND Lembeh.

Two Fish Divers Resort on Lembongan Island, Bali

The resort is based on an island called Nusa Lembongan, a small island 15 kilometres East of Sanur, south east of Bali. The distance from Sanur to Lembongan is the same as Manado to Bunaken, thats 30-40 minutes by boat so its not far!

Close to Nusa Lembongan are the islands of Nusa Penida and Nusa Ceningan, and around all three islands are great sites for diving.

Manta’s, Mola’s and Great Reefs!

Manta ray in BaliNusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida are home to Manta’s and Mola-mola, this is what initially made Bali famous for diving! There are more than 15 dive sites around these islands, offering a mixture of fantastic hard-corals, colourful soft corals and a range of critters from macro to pelagics, and large schools of fish.

The mainland is about 30-60mins away by boat (same distance as Manado-Bunaken!) and offers 15+ more dive sites for those who are staying longer, including the world-famous Liberty Wreck at Tulamben.

Existing Resort

Swimming pool for relaxingWe are renting an existing resort and converting it to our needs, and adding a dive center, compressor room and restaurant. The resort contains 10 rooms so can accommodate 20 guests, and all the rooms will have a/c and hot water. It also has a swimming pool and pool cafe for relaxing after diving!

Prices for staying with us will be similar to our cottages in Bunaken and Lembeh, but we will only be offering breakfast at the resort as there are many restaurants nearby for lunch and dinner.

There is a selection of budget accommodation on the island as well, so we can cater for all tastes!

Professional and local staff

PADI Five star IDC centerWhat makes us special in Bunaken & Lembeh is our 5 star service and mixture of experienced western instructors/managers and local staff, and Two Fish Divers in Bali will be no different.

A few of our staff from Bunaken and Lembeh will help set up the operation in the beginning (eg dive guide Frans from Bunaken, and Ivon who is reception/admin in Lembeh) but we will be hiring mostly new staff supported by regular visits by Two Fish management (Nigel & Febryo):

  • we will start with 4 local dive guides, all having done 1,000′s of dives in the area so have some great experience to share
  • an english instructor/dive manager called Jason will be joining us, he is new to the area but has done 100′s of courses and 1,000″s of dives so he will learn the area pretty quickly
  • a french instructor/dive manager called Laurent will also be joining us. He is a newer instructor with slightly less courses under his belt, but already has more than 1 year experience of running a dive center in Lembongan so knows the area and the island, and will therefore be a great asset to us

With this team we will be able to offer fun diving with experienced dive guides according to our normal high standards, as well as PADI courses with experienced instructors. One exciting thing that we also want to offer are 2-month DM internships over all three locations, more about this later!

Lembongan Island – paradise lost!

Beach on LembonganMany people comment that Nusa Lembongan must be similar to how Bali used to be before major tourism took off – no hawkers, no traffic, relaxed atmosphere and magnificent scenery! It is fast becoming one of Bali’s most popular attractions, a paradise that is a world away from the pollution, hassles and hectic pace of Bali, and the perfect place to put your feet up and relax. Popular with families weary of travel warnings, this island is a safe little spot to enjoy a perfect Bali diving holiday.

Yesterday Brendon and Nigel went diving with their brand new Megadolon Rebreather!!

What is a Rebreather?
A rebreather is a type of breathing set that provides a breathing gas containing oxygen and recycled exhaled gas. This recycling reduces the volume of breathing gas used, making a rebreather lighter and more compact than an open-circuit breathing set for the same duration.

There are different types and brands of rebreathers, the one that Brendon and Nigel choose is MEGALODON REBREATHER.

The Megalodon CCR Rebreather is a fine piece of diving machine sporting double heavy-duty o-ring seals on all connections, a heavy-duty aluminum stack where the electronics and Co2 absorbent canister is living in. Individualism is the motto of the day when it comes how to carry the unit ranging from Transpack soft packs to slim or full size stainless steel, aluminum or ABS backplates or even Armadillo sidemount systems. The Automatic Diluent Valve ( ADV ) is a nice safety feature addition during busy events or runaway descents. The Heads Up Display ( HUD ) is a sweet dream to dive with enabling the diver to watch the Po2 at all times, even the busiest ones.

There is a variety of configuations possible with the Megalodon CCR Rebreather depending on personal preferences. The unit is standard back mounted with front mounted cordura counterlungs. The Megalodon CCR Rebreather does not have a standard way of configuration, but can be configured to the divers needs and preferences and to suit the diving environment such as recreational diving, cave diving, technical diving or wreck diving.
SOON SOME PICTURES!!

In Lembeh our guests enjoyed a roasted pig dinner – BABI PUTAR. Our staff prepared and cooked the pig. It was slowly spit-roasted over a fire made from coconut husks and wood for around 4 hours until cooked to perfection (cheers Enggi)! It was enjoyed by all – Delicious!

Our Course Director Brendon Sing is presenting a weekly Shark Guardian Presentation at Two Fish Bunaken. As divers we do care about sharks and this is a great way to learn more about them and have chat about this subject at Blue Parrot Cafe.

SHARK GUARDIAN PRESENTATION
The Shark Guardian multimedia based slide show has been in development for over 10 years. The presentation is unique and incorporates a combination of brilliant images and films, leaving the audience amazed and with a new found insight and appreciation for sharks. The presentation is designed to show people the true and natural beauty of sharks, their role in the eco-system and why sharks are vital for all life on Earth. The Shark Guardian presentation is suitable for all ages and when necessary it is altered to suit the audience.

As part of the presentation Brendon wants to show the audience how they can help and get involved with shark conservation efforts anywhere in the world. Through education and action, with the belief that we can make a difference and with the right motivation, we can achieve stronger protection for sharks worldwidePLEASE VISIT THE SHARK GUARDIAN WEBSITE
