Last dive...Success for the shot I wanted

Lost internet on the last days and got hit with bali belly 2 hours after my last dive (thankfully). The pressure was on. I still didnt have the shots I was looking for but thanks to Emo and a super early start at Crystal Bay it all fell into place ...

The Great Ceninngan Wall

We finally got to a superb wall dive, Cenningan Wall on the South East Corner of the island. Emo has been trying to get us on here for the past few days but currents have been too strong. Lembongan has major current changes here and it is hard to plan ...

3 from a distance...And an awesome special spot

Well finally, we saw 3 Molas, but alas from a distance and they were at about 45-50 metres! We took the boat early to Crystal bay to avoid the masses. And we literally only just missed them. As we wer ascending from 30 metres, there were literally about 5 groups ...

No big stuff but an exhilirating drift dive!

Well today was not a day for photos. We did 3 dives, the first 2 hunting for big stuff but to no avail. I didnt realise how cold the water temp actually gets here...a very brisk 17 degrees. Lucky for the extra 3mm wetsuit and gloves.

The first 2 ...

Mola Mola..WTfstop?

Lembongan Island. Amazing. Blue Corner Dive Resort has only been opened since July but what a place! First dive today was Mola Mola. I was in awe, in shock, mesmerized by this massive, gentle, graceful and weird looking creature. I slowly descended beneath him (33 metres and about 21 degrees ...

An unexpected and rare treat..

While some people are daunted by a 6am start to diving, it paid off today with a rare and unexpected visit by a Mola Mola. It was a quick 'hi, how you doing? I'm off again' visit but made a great start to the day.

I also continued my ...

The good, the bad and the ugly

The Good-Three, yes three ghost pipefish at one location! Woo Hoo. The Bad-Camera strobe dying just as I found them, Doh! The Ugly-Bumphead parrotfish at this mornings dive. Oh well, will just have to go diving again tomorrow.

Liberty Wreck and Schooling Jacks

An early start at 6.30am, considering this is also supposed to be a holiday. Liberty Wreck before the masses didn't disappoint with schooling jacks and great visibility. It's great to be back in the water. Hoping everyone else is having a great and safe festival so far!

Packed and ready to go.. Bali here we come!

We are packed and ready to go. Bali here we come. Miss Under H2O (and Mr Under H2O) have maxed out the check in and carry on luggage allowance for the 9.30am flight tomorrow morning. By mid afternoon it will be a warm 29-30 degrees out of the water ...
