  1. Some more mantas The huge gorgonias at Menjangan at northwest of Bali
  2. The place is amazing and perfect for diving. We have been diving the Seraya Secrets this January (rainy season), just diving not at the hotel and the visibility was not more than 1 meter...
  3. Well, this is the end. I wish u have liked them. I really enjoyed to did them and to show u too. Thanks a lot for your comments
  4. These are from Seraya Secrets, amazing place for macro close to Tulamben
  5. These are from one of the three dives we did there. Because of the rain and the river in Tulamben the visibility was very poor...a pity because the Tulamben wreck is amazing for wide angle...well these is what i got. Thanks for your comments.
  6. A few more mantas maybe too much of the same motive?
  7. I was this last Christmast at Bali and get to dive some. Its rainy season and visibility is less than desirable. Manta Point dive site at Nusa Penida is amazing. The worst is the very big swell that make the dives sometime risky. And must be taken care not to crash agaist the rocks...but in 2 dives we enjoy wth 20 big mantas (around 4 meters) than came in squadrons like huge planes...amazing There were also several black mantas, beautifull i have some more developing will put here as soon as i have some free time
  8. Hi. I heading to Bali for this Christmast from 27th till 10th . I have been diving Bali 3 times before (always in august) in Tulamben and Nusa Penida, so i was planing to move to other areas like Menjangan and Padang Bai. Could someone please help me with any advice about these areas, like best dive resorts, dive centers, dive sites...etc. Thanks

  19. Could someone please tell me where can i get some bateries for de DS200 in London?. Doing a scale there in a next journey to Red sea and i cant find any Ikelite dealers in London. Thank u
  20. I don'tthink so. Coming from Manado (Indonesia) to Sipadan (Malasya) you need to pass through an international airport, The nearest one is Kota kinabalu. Then from there do a domestic fly to Tawau. That's the way we did and we spent 2 days 'cause you need to stay one night in Tawau and in the morning do the bus tryp to Semporna and the boat tryp to Mabul arriving after midday
  21. Hi Dominic. I have done both in a 3 weeks journy and i think it's the best dive travel i have ever done. We stayed for 3 day in Singapoure ( 1 arriving and 2 in the way back). Then 10 days at Manado at NDC Resort ( they have refurnished complete and it's a greit, greit place with very nice dive guides) and there were a flight straight to Kota Kinabalu, flight to Tawau and from there bus and speedboat to Sipadan. It was the last year you could stayed at Sipadan before they closed. For Banggai i think you need to go to Lembe, so keep at least one day for that dive. Easy to do from Manado. Land based it's perfect for both destinations.
  22. I did not dive with Macana Maldives , but have some italian friends (I think Macana it's from Italy) and they said me Princess Haleema it's an amazing boat, luxury with an italian flavor.
