Hello dive friends!
The yellow fan gorgonian coral by ‘Boulders’ is full of small pygmy seahorses. You better bring your magnifying glass to be able to see them. The mandarin fishes on our house reef are happy breeding, so love is in the air these days.
The mandarin dive is a perfect way to start your night diving experience and gain credits toward the Advanced Open Water Certificate. We make theory in the afternoon; get ready for the briefing and jump in the water just by dusk. You still have enough light to orientate and slowly get used to the darkness. Then the show goes on! You have many different nocturnal species crawling and swimming around by the reef. Of course the Mandarin fishes are one of the highlights, but other critters like flamboyant cuttlefish, crayfish in all sorts and juvenile batfish are to be seen as well.
More happy divers in the sea! We would like to congratulate our newly certified Open Water and Advanced Open Water divers:
Cogratulations to Gabriela Gregorius (Brazilian) and Anna Coverdale (Australian) for finishing Open Water Course the 9th of Nobember. Both of them are living in China and made a quick visit here, but they are definately not done diving!
Congratulation to Ralf Ullrich, Denise Heyde, Birgit Gebhardt and Michel Lesik finishing Advanced Open Water on the 6th of November. All four from a group of Germans who were here for two weeks. Now they can proudly join the club of their friends who were already Advanced divers.
Best regards from the ABWonderdive team by
