This week in Bunaken… Happy New Year everybody! Here in Bunaken we welcomed the new year with great fireworks on the beach in front of the cafe and the rain that had been on and off all day finally stopped to allow us a great celebration. Plenty of sparkles were passed around and in the photo you can see our tec instructor Dom trying to spell out Two Fish with a sparkle. Unfortunately it was only enough sparkle for “TWO” before it burned out! You get an A for effort though! Thank you Phil Clarke for the photo.
The last days of 2014 were quite rainy and windy, but on the morning of New Year’s Day the sun peeked through the clouds and it turned in to a great sunny day with flat seas.
What better way to start the new year than to do it under water? PADI Open Water student Evonne got to start 2015 with getting certified and PADI Advanced Open Water student Tina completed her course the same day with a night dive. She saw so much cool stuff during that dive that upon surfacing she wondered why people even bother to dive during the day!
There has been plenty of courses going on; everything from PADI Discover Scuba Diving and PADI Open Water to TDI Sidemount with some PADI Night, Nitrox and Equipment specialties in between. The fun divers have been treated to the ever present and ever loved turtles as well as eagle rays, napoleon wrasses, mating cuttle fish, amazing crusteceans during the night dives and even a super tiny little frog fish.
2015 is off to a great start!
