We had a great dive at Close Encounters in Pemuteran–negligible current, good visibility and lots of critters to see. The expert eyes of dive guide Abdul pointed out creatures great and small. We even saw a shark wedged under a ledge–in a space too small to get my camera into (wish I had a tiny GoPro for that shot). Everyone comes to the pirates of Sea Rovers in Pemuteran to dive Menjangan, but be sure to allow enough time in your holiday to check out our great local reefs as well.

This moray wasn’t too shy and kept poking his head out when I was shooting the sweetlips

This photogenic sweet lips was sharing space with the moray eel. Had to keep an eye on my fingers while shooting
