Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Bali Diving Academy is wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
We have been kept busy and hosted some interesting events last year. It was a pleasure to welcome National Geographic student’s expedition for a second time in 2016 with 2 groups and also ISKL had the 5th year anniversary of coming to Pemuteran this year. Instead of building a new Biorock, we changed the program slightly and all the students learned a lot about maintaining the current structures and attach more corals and clean where it was necessary. We also added some interesting elements in the program and could involve the local community even more this time.
In Nusa Lembongan we did help to film parts of an episode of the Amazing race Asia and also in June we welcomed Chinese pro Surfer Darci Liu to film the Ishimore energy drink commercial with our long time friends from Scubazoo. You can watch the final commercial online on Bali Diving Academy’s Face book page.
The Underwater Marco Photographers were hosted for the first time with Bali Diving Academy and hopefully we will see them again in the future for another exiting photo week. Some incredible images were taken in Tulamben and also Pemuteran and Menjangan.
This year in Lembongan we had less Mola sightings than in the absolutely stunning year 2015, but there were still plenty of Manta Rays around and all the other marine life is as good as always. We do still participate in ongoing research and helping various individuals and organizations to hopefully shed some more light in the mystery of the Mola and its whereabouts when they are not swimming and getting cleaned around the waters of Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida.
We are looking forward to the year 2017 and the entire team of Bali Diving Academy is ready to give you a warm welcome and we will keep providing the best possible services for all of our guests.
