Happy New Year from Bali Diving Academy
The Year 2015 comes to an end and we are looking forward to 2016. It has been an interesting year for Bali Diving Academy, we met loads of old friends and divers and welcomed many new ones.
In Lembongan we experienced an awesome year in terms of diving. This has been one of the best Mola years in a long time and water temperatures dropped down to as cold as 13 degrees and from temperature loggers installed at certain sites, we do know that it even got down to 10 degrees. Brrr but despite that, we were also blessed with Hammerhead and Thresher shark sightings and various other not that regular visitors to Bali.
Tulamben is as popular as always with the Liberty Shipwreck, but also wreck of the Kubu a bit further north was a regular dived place this year. From Rhinopias, blue ring octopus, various Pygmy seahorses and many other critters, the area around Tulamben and Amed still competes with the famous Lembeh strait in North Sulawesi.
In Pemuteran our new dive center building and pool is a huge new asset and also our partner resort Taman Sari has build some new studio rooms and is working constantly, to maintain and increase the high standard they already have since many years. We worked again with several school and student groups this year and welcomed international groups from National Geographic, that build their own Biorocks and we are looking forward to welcome many again in 2016. The diving around Menjangan National park is as good as always and even a few more whale sharks were sighted this year which is always a big bonus.
For Bali Diving Academy we are now entering our 25th year of operation in Bali and while many things have changed over the time we still enjoy to do what we do best, that is to deliver a safe and enjoyable diving experience to all our guests.
We wish everyone a Happy New Year 2016 and looking forward to see again in the future
