Thresher Sharks in Lembongan

By | Conservation, Underwater Life, Updates | No Comments

The high season (July to October) is normally highlighted by the chance to see the Mola (Sunfish). Though this has been true for this high season, we have also had increased sightings of thresher sharks; another amazing and rare creature!

Thresher sharks have been seen around Lembongan before, but it was a rare occasion and often deep (30 – 40 meters). Through the months of September and October, the chance of seeing a thresher has jumped up dramatically.

These thresher sharks have been spotted shallower than normal, around 20 – 30 meters, cursing by our divers on the north coast of Nusa Penida. Not all the thresher sharks have been spotted that deep. One was spotted during a PADI Discover Scuba Dive and another was spotted during dive 4 of the PADI Open Water course.

The Lazy Wobbegong Shark

Among the many creatures that can be spotted around Lembongan and Penida, one interesting one is the Wobbegong Shark. As of late, we have been seeing more and more of these strange creatures.

This got Kipp thinking;

  • Are these sharks seasonal?
  • Do they migrate?
  • Where does their name came from?
  • How do they move around and hunt?

Let’s dive in and help Kipp answer these questions!

Drift Diving in Lembongan

By | PADI, Underwater Life | No Comments

Drift Diving

Lembongan is known for its drift diving. There are some ‘horror’ stories on the internet, from people that had an unfortunate dive in current. With the correct information, a knowledgeable dive centre and correct procedures, drift diving can be a lot of fun!

Some of the best coral reefs around the islands of Lembongan, Penida and Ceningan is on the north coast or in the channel between Ceningan and Penida. It is common off these parts of the islands, to find current. This current can range from close to no current at all, to a brisk push along the dive site.

The current is one of the main reasons that the coral reef is so healthy. This current bringsĀ nutrient rich waters to the area, which allows the coral reef to feed. Having a healthy coral reef provides homes for reef fish andĀ juvenile fish. Having a coral reef that is full of fish, provides food for bigger predator fish. And all this together, creates our underwater ecosystem.
