This week in Lembongan… The mola season may officially be over and it was not what we were all expecting but we have had a surprise turn of events this week, with our divers spotting 2 molas on 2 different dives through and another dive centre spotting 4 molas together on 1 dive. This is not to say that the mola season is coming late, but great to see that some are still around.
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.
Walls reaching depths of 600m and a location at the heart of the Coral Triangle are only two reasons why technical divers should visit Bunaken island. Yet, despite being perfect tech territory on paper, the island remains something of a well-kept secret. For those who haven’t been, we’ve put together a few reasons to book your trip now.
North Lombok, the Gili islands this week the water has been calm, clear and perfect for diving!! It has also dropped a bit in temperature, we have averaged at 29 but with all the thermoclines we have been getting 28 and with this we have been spotting a lot more ornate ghost pipefish hiding around the feather stars on various dive sites.
