Sadly today was the last day of diving for our returning brethren Stefan. His lovely wife Bianca stayed ashore this trip as she is “with pirate” (congrats you guys). Stefan & his trusty camera had the local boat basically to himself most days, except when the retired resident photo wench was able to tag along. Hope you got some great shots this trip–be sure to email them for us to post on the website.
Jasmin lives in Germany now, but spent many years in Jakarta. She got certified in 1995, but like many of us, lacked the time and/or money to keep diving. Now that she has both, she came to Sea Rovers and did a refresher dive with Captain Paul, followed by some dives in Pemuteran Bay and Menjangan with Edy. She said on her last day at Menjangan that she finally felt relaxed and was able to totally enjoy the beautiful wall dives. Come back to us soon, Jasmin, so you can experience that amazing feeling for your entire holiday.
These UW photographer brethren are truly hardcore–they did everything Sea Rovers has to offer–Menjangan, Pemuteran–both day and night dives, and Secret Bay. They came to us fresh off a Komodo liveaboard and are leaving us to dive in Tulamben. Carol was sidelined with ear problems, but hopefully she will be able to get her fins back on in Tulamben. It was great to dive with you guys–next time, stay with us longer!
Nick & Alicia from Oregon hadn’t been diving in quite a while, so they did a relaxed refresher dive in Pemuteran Bay with Wayan–don’t they look relaxed and refreshed?! Remember, it’s always a good idea to do a refresher to brush up on important skills if you’ve been out of the water for a significant period of time, or any time you don’t feel completely confident. Welcome to the Brethren guys–hope to see you back here soon!
Rachel finished her Open Water training with the Captain yesterday. She wants to come back soon to gain more experience and explore underwater photography.
Our resident retired photo wench Kat snapped Rachel demonstrating her new-found ability to hover.
Lena is showing off her brand new Open Water C-card. She completed her training this week with Wayan and now officially joins the ranks of The Brethren. Felix joined her for a few of her training dives, but unfortunately came down with the flu and had to cut his diving short. We hope they will be back with us soon.
