Deep Reef at BunakenThe deep reef at Bunaken is what makes this area an ideal location for technical diving. A question that really puzzles me, but I get asked over and over, why do you tech dive here, there is so much to see? Does that not really answer itself? Perhaps people’s perception of tech diving is groping about in zero visibility on the end of a reel, and yes sometimes it is like that. However other than training dives where the object is just to accomplish the dive and put skills learnt into practise, and location and environment will dictate whether there is anything to see or not; a technical recreational dive, (we are paying for the privilege of these dives after all) should have an objective worth the time and expense of the gear and training that it took to get you there.

Hammer time (1 of 1)Its hammer time at Bunaken! I have been very lucky with sightings this past year at Bunaken. A huge Mola Mola in the shallows at Fukui, thresher sharks both deep at Muka and during an open water course at Lekuan Tiga, dolphins at Tanjung Parigi, and surface and snorkel sightings of Manta, Pilot Whales, Black Marlin and Sailfish: but it was still a thrill to be checked out by a stocky Scalloped Hammerhead shark. The shark did a slow cautious swim by at 50m then edged off into the gloom. That was great! Myself and Danny were very chuffed, but felt a little bit bad for Rachel who had chosen that morning to take off, ouch! Then I hear an excited shout from Danny, the shark had circled around us and was waiting for us on the reef, between the two of us making sure each other had seen it and both of us grabbing for cameras it is no wonder the poor shark got a fright. Boom, off like a rocket into the gloom again!
