Weekly round-up: hairy octopus in Lembeh, a great photo of a Giant Flathead from Bunaken, and Molas still being seen in Lembongan. Plus we have just announced our Special Offers for next year Jan-Mar, and we found a great deal to get PADI to pay for some conservation!
Diving in Lembeh
THIS WEEK IN LEMBEH… Hairy Octopus again!! We have been seeing them on a few sites recently and are certainly seeing more at the moment that an any other time! Thanks to Ashleigh Wiley for the great pic of this cheeky one on a pack of cigarettes! Other fun stuff this week includes Stargazers (day and night), Mimic, Wunderpus, Coconut and Starry Night Octopus, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Ambon scorpionfish, Robust Ghost Pipefish, Coleman’s Shrimp and many more!
We have also done a bit of exploring and found an interesting new dive site that revealed lots of frogfish (hairy and shaggy), coconut octopus, wunderpus, hairy ghost pipefish and pygmy pipehorse so we’ll be paying it another visit soon!
Diving in Bunaken
THIS WEEK IN BUNAKEN…….We have had some old friends back to visit and they say that they still find the diving amazing! The highlight again was a Dugong, even through the dolphins were also a big hit.
