Senggigi, Lombok. This week we had a few days of constant rain. Visibility dropped a bit but after one day of dryness it was crystal clear again and 29ºc. Senggigi offers us a variety of sea life ranging from small macro to schools of trevally, reef sharks, turtles and sea snakes.
One of the creatures that amaze me the most is how many different kinds of nudibranchs and flatworms that can be seen here. Dotted around the reef are these multi-coloured beauties. Again the sizes range from 1 inch to 5 inches depending on species. The nudie that usually stands out the most to our divers has been the Kubaryana’s Nembrotha (as pictured above), the colours are vibrant and bold, hard to miss this as you cross its path. There are many different colours of this nudie ranging from a green and orange stripped nudie to mainly green dots, or mainly orange dots. So far of this kind we have spotted two variations.
We here in Senggigi, Lombok are also lucky to have sighted the Spanish Dancer on one of our night dives. The Spanish Dancer can get as big as 24 inch, it bright red-orange and extremely good swimmers.
So far an estimated variety of around 15-20 different nudibranchs and flat worms around Senggigi. Truly colourful dives!!
