Sea Slugs in South Lombok
I had the pleasure of seeing the stunning butterfly sap-sucking sea slug (Cyerce elegans) for the first time on a night dive here this week. Cyerce elegans is like the fairy tale Princess of the sea slugs… Pink cerata extruding from the body like luminous leaves on a tree, each one “pops” out at you under the torchlight as they have a spot in the middle that glints with iridescence. It topped off another excellent night dive on our unspoilt reefs.
In other news, whilst our Belongas hammerhead shark season is coming to an end we still have busy boats of fun divers wanting to experience the incredible “Secret Gilis” as well as Nick (UK) and Hirman (Indonesia) completing their PADI Advanced Open Water with Kate. Nick is well on his way to perfecting his skills as a buoyancy master and we’re very much looking forward to helping Hirman progress as a dive guide and PADI Divemaster. Next stop Rescue Diver – and hopefully more beautiful sea slugs along the way!!
