And it will look after you
As the guys from Lautan Berkat come up to look over our little Coltrisub MCH 13. Which is coming up to 10yrs old and still running strong and pure.
Good air is at the heart of a SCUBA system. Air should taste of nothing, make your mouth a little dry and that’s about it’. It is after all exactly the same air as you’re breathing when you drink your coffee at the back of our office. Just with some moisture filtered out to reduce the risk of corrosion inside the tank. The air is compressed through a filter that contains molecular sieve and activated carbon to remove impurities and any potential contaminants. So yes, as you learn in your diver training
Always use, pure, dry, filtered air from a reputable dive station.
Basically if the air tastes of something bad, especially if it has an oily taste, funny odour, gives you a headache while diving. Then something is wrong, stop diving.
Just one of many things to consider when looking for a dive centre to go diving with.

The lovely Ms Illeanna Simancas paid a visit with us earlier this year and put together this little travel blog post and YouTube video about her time in Pemuteran with the Pirates who dived.
Watch the video and look out for a couple of familiar faces.

Mount Agung continues to rumble
And Bali continues to be on high alert, we continue to look at fish. Not much else you can do, everybody is just waiting to see what happens.
For those planning to come, keep planning just be flexible. Remember the Icelandic eruption, it effected flight across Europe. You may have to land outside of Bali if the airport gets closed due to ash. But there is an Airport just across the straights from us in Banyuwangi East Java. Its actually closer than Denpasar. Same goes for those in Bali, There are plans in place for get you home if the airport closes.
For me, I’m here, waiting to see what happens. Be assured though that the Pirates of Pemuteran are all safe and well. We’ll keep you up to date if anything new happens.
Meanwhile this has been a good source of info, bit sensationalised on occasion but not the worse I have seen http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/859280/Bali-volcano-update-Mount-Agung-eruption-latest-seismic-graphs-news-maps-warnings-live

You may have heard in the news that Bali is under highest alert for a volcano eruption. Mount Agung is 60 miles/96.5 km away from us here in Pemuteran with a range of mountains in-between, so we are safe here.
They have evacuated over 10,000 people from the area close to the volcano. These are some of the poorest villages in Bali, and many in our diving industry are affected too because Tulamben is shut down and reports from Amed state that many of the tourists have left (even though Amed is outside the evacuation zone).
Here at Sea Rovers, it’s business as usual. If you are traveling to Bali in the next few weeks, keep a close eye on the news and stay in touch with your airline or travel agent.

Lonely Mangrove stands vigil at the entrance to Pemuteran Bay
But now it doesn’t need to be so lonely, a mangrove can have friends visit and at the same time enjoy one of the newly installed ‘Selfie Swings’ of Pemuteran. Because, why not?
Easy to find at the entrance to Pemuteran Bay, just by Pura Dalam and the Glass Houses. Its also a great location to romantically swing and watch the sunset. Course there are only two so you might have to wait your turn.
The second swing is further down the coast above, and on land, next to the ‘Underwater Temple Garden’ a leisurely stroll along the beach to the small hills West of the Bay. You’ll find it at the point of the peninsula.
So lets see those twitter/instagram/facebook/G+ posts #selfieswingpemuteran
