This week in Bunaken… Five different species of sea turtle are among the marine life Bunaken Marine Park is famous for and recently we’ve seen particularly big ones, true ‘battleship turtles in Bunaken’. They’re one of our guests’ favourite photography subjects. These past few days, they were in for a treat.
Goodbye mola! Today I finished my divemasters with a really good last day! While mapping crystal bay a mola came by to wave goodbye to my instructor Gwen and me. The first half of my Divemaster was in Sanur, Bali mainland, where I started with 4 days of theory and skills practice in the pool…
In Belongas, South Lombok this week for the second time this year we have encountered Manta Rays..yes Manta Rays. These particular fish were not just any mantas, but rather majestic Oceanic Mantas! It is not often that we come across them, but an extra special treat, like the Mola Mola ( Sunfish), Dolphins, Whale Shark…
This week in Bali: we have had great weather and blue skys and the water has been blue as well. Leaf fish in a few variations have been spotted all around Bali.
My twelve-day stay in Lembeh, the final station of my Divemaster internship, is unfortunately coming to an end soon. I took here the specialty course on “Underwater Navigation”
This week in Lembongan… Mola Mola Mola!!!! After an amazing mola season we believed that these creatures had made their way back to depths, as the water has begin to be warmer but, no! They decide this week, to come say hi to our divers and show them that they are still here!
This week we said a big hello to welcome Yvonne to Bunaken – and we’ve also had an impromptu Koh Tao reunion. It’s been a busy week for technical diving in Bunaken with Chris visiting from Koh Tao to do as many fun tech dives as possible.
We have discovered the biggest nudibranch in the world at Bunaken! We have christened him Godzilla and he lives at 45m on Mandolin. Giving us cause for concern that there may be nuclear waste or something down there creating monstrous molluscs!
