This week on the North Gilis, Lombok we have been christening our new pool! We started with a dip and swim, and then we had our first scuba try out with a couple from Belgium which lead onto a Discover scuba out at Turtle Heaven dive site north of Gili Meno. Yesterday we had our boat crew Zul and Harry, and our admin staff Mita in there for a skill session and swim about, what a bunch of fun we had with millions of pictures taken. It is a lovely feeling having a whole team together enjoying being underwater which is really what we are all about.
Out on the dive sites this week we have visited Turtle Heaven, Manta point, Frogfish point and Coral fan garden. We have been bumping into plenty of turtles, cuttlefish, orang-utan crabs, shrimps, Blue spotted stingrays, blue fin trevally and schools of squid have appeared at Turtle heaven circling the top of the underwater mountain (as we like to call it) the past 2 times we visited.
The visibility has been exceptional this week, clear crystal blue water. You feel it never ends. The temperature has also been warm at 29 degrees.
Our building is all done with our classroom complete and decorated, now we are just on the finishing touches around the land such as the very important Bar and chill out area. It really is coming together nicely now.
