Wow. It’s been a week already!! We are in full swing here in Bunaken. There are a variety of courses going on! I have been assisting with Ina, who is great. She explains everything really well and is also fun and a great role model for me. She’s calm. Lol.
This week in Bunaken … We have had some great dives here in Bunaken over the last week but the most amazing sighting was the capture of ten sargassum frogfish in a large ball of tangled rope, plastic, fishing net, fishing line and seaweed!
In Lembeh Pegasus is alive and well, although not in the form the Greeks imagined. Instead of the beautiful winged horse, which flies through the sky’s, it instead is an odd looking winged fish that waddles the sea floor.
Welcome to our Weekly Roundup! Last week we had schooling barracuda, emperor shrimps, ninja manta’s and an amazing story of a young girls journey on becoming a cave videographer.
This week in Lembongan… nautical charts were spread open, compasses at the ready and global positioning systems on, as Commander Laurent and the team set sail for exploring Lembongan’s waters.

So here we are, at the end of a 5-week long training. I have completed my PADI divemaster internship, and it has been a wonderful experience through which I have been able to acquire a wide range of skills. It certainly has allowed me to expand my knowledge base of the diving industry.
Week 2 of my divemaster training- being a panic diver is quite an exercise The past week I have been assisting on a rescue course. When I heard that Georgia, a fellow DMT, was starting her rescue course, I told Bryce that I would really like to assist on the course. I had no idea…
