What happened when you show a ghost-pipefish to an open water student on his first or second dive? This week, we welcomed Lasse from Denmark who came over to start with us his Divemaster course and I asked him this question. Answer surprised him a bit. It’s a shame in a way but it will…

Anything!! Divesites like our house reef and Ghost Bay provide top-class muck diving, with mimic octopus, ghost pipefish and more. Amed Wall and Pyramids provide easy drift dives with turtles, reef sharks, blue-spotted stingrays and many reef fish. If you want wrecks then we are just 20 minutes from the famous USAT Liberty wreck, home to turtles, barracuda, lovely corals and great macro life, or visit Japanese Shipwreck for more macro and many gorgonians on a sloping reef.
For the big fish lovers we have sites like Bunutan and Gili Selang where you will find more current and more big fish – sharks, barracudas and occasionally even the ocean sunfish (Mola Mola). And that’s without even mentioning our day trips to other locations like Candidasa, Padang Bai or Nusa Lembongan / Nusa Penida!
