Welcome to the Team and Indonesian Diving - GhiifariWelcome to the Team Ghifari

Not only did we have an amazing diving week in Lembongan to start September off with a bang, we also would like welcome to the Team – Ghifari, ready to explore Indonesian diving.

Ghifari (A.K.A Gif or Gify) joined our team on the 2nd of September. Originally from West Surabaya, Indonesia, Gif left his home village and moved to Jakarta in 2010 to study. While in Jakarta, Gif completed his university studies in finance and accounting before starting work with an electric company, in the finance department.

It wasn’t long at his new job, that Gify realized that the office life was not really for him. With this, he started to look elsewhere for another opportunity. It was at this time that a friend of his, (who also turned out to be a friend of instructor Bryce’s) pointed Gif in the direction of the Twin Island Dive ad on Facebook. With this, Gif had the chance to explore Indonesian diving.

Finding Nemo – Exposed

Finding Nemo in LembonganFinding Nemo in Lembongan

In 2003,  Pixar Animation Studios filled the silver screen with bright colours and introduced children and parents alike, to Nemo the Clown Fish. It was because of Finding Nemo, that Clown Fish would now consistently be refereed to as Nemo(s).

Nemo and his friends underwater adventures helped introduce a new generation to the underwater world. This in turn helped spike interest in scuba diving, fish and despite the horrifying scene of Nemo being snatched for a personal collection, an extreme boost in Clown Fish sales, for pets.

Even though more Clown Fish were being taken from the oceans, for aquariums, Finding Nemo did fill children with wonder about the underwater world, different fish and a new found love for Clown Fish.

We know that Finding Nemo is a kids movie about adventures, friendship and family, which needed to be delivered in a child-friendly way, but there are a few facts that are just not quiet correct.

Let’s break these facts down point by point: Read More

Stunning Week in Lembongan

Manta Ray in Manta Bay

Last week at Twin Island Dive…

What a week it has been here at Twin Island Dive, in Nusa Lembongan. We have had some very lucky divers with us, who have seen some of the best sea creatures that Lembongan has to offer! What a stunning week in Lembongan, it has been! Manta Bay was 100% the standout dive site of the week.

We have had everything from PADI Discover Scuba Divers, to PADI Open Water course to lots of fun divers. All these divers have brought an amazing amount of luck to their dives.

Started the week right!

The week started with Jesper and Michella doing their PADI Open Water course with us. After completing the theory and swimming pool skills, it was time to get out into the ocean for their open water dives.

On the 2nd day of their ocean dives, while diving at Manta Bay, everyone on the boat got the chance to see dolphins playing around at the surface. Instructor Bryce and Jesper, descended for the start of their dive and headed in the direction of where the dolphins were.

10 minutes into the dive, Bryce banged on his tank and pointed into the distance. Although they were a bit far away, both Bryce and Jesper, had the chance to watch the passing pod of dolphins. Read More
