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.

Kate giving it a go. Try Scuba that is.
Simon and Kate are regular returning brethren to the NW Bali coast, but this is the first time we have persuaded Kate to put away her snorkel and Try Scuba diving here in Pemuteran. She did it, whether she does it again is up for debate. But she can proudly say the she Tried Scuba, and though she still prefers snorkeling at least she tried. And for that we applaud you young lady, well done.
The simple fact is diving isn’t for everyone. But if you don’t try you’ll never know. And what better place to try than Pemuteran Bay in NW Bali. Calm seas, mild currents plus an abundance of fish and coral to look at.
So come on up to the North, where the Pirates live and give it a go. You know you want to.

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

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

During a recent dive in Mucky Pirates Bay, I came across an upside-down jellyfish lying in the sand. I wasn’t sure whether it was alive or dead, so I gently prodded it with my muck stick. Imagine my surprise when it started running across the sand! What I didn’t realize was that there was a decorator crab underneath who had adorned this jellyfish like a hat to protect itself from predators. I found another one on a subsequent dive, so this must be fairly common. It’s clear what benefit the crab gets from this relationship…not sure if the jellyfish is too happy about the arrangement.Save
