NOVEMBER 2016

The end of the season always brings some great things on the muck dives. We have been having particularly good luck at our dive site Lothars’s Place with striated, freckled and Randal’s frogfishes, wonderpuss, and some really special nudibranch such as 3 different types of melibe and a beautiful blue bubble shell micromello!

OCTOBER 2016

This month has seen an explosion of ghost pipefish on the muck sites inside the Kalabahi Bay and also down at Beang Bay. We have spotted many ornate, robust and halimeda ghost pipefish, often in pairs and/or with eggs. The striped tozeuma shrips are also back at Beang Bay and will hopefully stick around for the rest of the season!

Mola-molas are back!  After a couple months of warm water in Asia, the cold currents have returned from the south and brought in the mola-molas that are normally resident to Alor. We had quite a few sightings after the full and new moons this month! Check out our Facebook page for some guest photos and video.

A bit of muck exploration at the beginning of this month worked out well as we found a great new diving spot – Barry’s Bay. We have been going back every week to see the great critters found in the shallows there including the paddle flap and weedy rhinopias. Barry’s is also a great spot for seahorses,

MAY 2016

It has been a great month for the muck again with multiple rhinopias spottings and also many octopus spottings including wonderpus, bluering and mototi. We even found a striated frogfish in kalabahi bay – something we usually only see at end season in south Pantar!

The big stuff did not fail to impress with our usual hammerhead sightings and snorkeling with mola-molas plus 2 marlin sightings and a school of 30+ eagle rays.
