This week in Bunaken… Divers have started to see the result of all the eggs that were seen over the last couple of months. Now there are babies everywhere! The tiniest little Nemos hiding away in anemones, golden damsel fish blending in with fan corals and the most gorgeous little cuttlefish babies stood their ground against the divers during a PADI specialty night dive. Thank you Phil Clarke for the beautiful photo of a mama Nemo protecting her eggs!
The crazy currents of lately seem to have calmed down a fair bit, but the sightings are still great. Coming back from a dive at Mike’s Point, Two Fish veteran David from Holland said he didn’t know which way to look as large tunas, barracudas, reef sharks, eagle ray and a big marbled ray were all buzzing around the divers at the same time. It’s times like that you just let the camera be and hang back and enjoy the show.
Other sightings these weeks has been, among plenty of other things; ornate ghost pipe fish, ribbon eel, tiger shrimp, blue ringed octopus, wahoo, giant trevallies and yes of course – the turtles.
Last, but as always, not least, we are very proud to congratulate yet another brand new PADI Divemaster in to the family of PADI professionals. Thano from the US came to us as an Advanced diver 6 weeks ago and on the same day he completed his divemaster course he also did his 100th dive! What a day! Congratulations!!
