The Lembeh strait is a really special place, none can say the oposite. Usually, the biologist and the professional underwater photographers say that is the best place in the world for muck dive. May be is true, or may be not. We normally listened the best professionals, the best teachers, the best scientists…we are waiting for a new information, waiting for the best advise…and all of them say that Lembeh strait is the best.
But the critters are not waiting us. We must to find them. And usually is difficult…for us, the KBR dive team, it is our big challenge. We take care every day about all dive operational aspects. The most important when we dive is the safety, after this we focus to learn every day, only to find the critters, only to show our guests.
We were really busy last week, visited us divers from USA, UK, Japan, Italy and Rusia. All of them with differents targets: there are guests want to see all critters, others only the tiny ones. Every guest are a challenge for us. Becuase we want that remember the days with us with a big smile.
One exemple is that we try to show the blue ring octopus to one guest, but was not possible for a few days: maybe the small cephalopod hided when we arrived, maybe we had not good luck…but we take this challenge as a personal matter, because we focus to show critters, to do the best. And finally, we find it the last day our guest dived with us, actually the last dive. Like a final in the olimpic games, one of our staff find the wonderful octopus, was possible because the guides are like a underwater Sherlock Holmes! because check and check all time the ground, the coral, the gorgonias, the holes…only to find where is our target.
So for our guests was a happy ending holiday with us. Because He can finally take “the blue ring octopus picture” (you can see here the pic form Mr. David).
Other interesting thing was that a black giant frogfish visited us. We saw two days under our jetty, only at 2 meters deep. You can see short video from Ms. Hope here.
Yes, Sherlock holmes never been here. And all our dive guides have the most important to be one: they love the job and have a huge patience….so, who need Sherlock Holmes? None, because the success is guaranteed!
