Look at the antlers on Bambi
One of the lesser know facts about Menjangan Island is that it is also Deer Island. And though we don’t always see them the deer swim from the mainland to graze on Menjangan Island.
So there you have it. Bambi is quiet a swimmer.

Smugglers run aground
A few days or more correctly nights ago smugglers ran afoul of Tankad Jaran, one of our local reefs. Story goes that once the crew realised they were well and truly stuck and taking on water, they basically scarpered. The vessel, a local wooden phinisi style cargo ship, common to the water of Indonesia was apparently carrying barrels of Solar (Diesel) to be sold offshore presumably to international vessels.
The Ship has no license or paperwork so apparently no owner. Pol Air (or marine police), have already removed the cargo but could not remove the ship from the reef. Discussions are in process to make this a permanent and hopefully slightly deeper wreck
Funnily enough Tankad Jaran is also home to the Canyon Wreck, another vessel that ran aground on the same feef many years ago and was later reclaimed and permanently sunk only a couple hundred meters away to the East. Tankad Jaran is also home to the BioWreck and Kuberan Kapal (Ships graveyard) all part of the 2005 local ‘Reef Gardeners‘ environmental project here in Pemuteran. Which also included the now famous ‘Underwater Temple‘.
With luck this unfortunate vessel will become a thriving little ecosystem in the days to come.
Pos 3, Coral Garden
At the back of Menjangan Island is Pos 3 a popular spot for snorkeling and the nearest access point to the main Temple at Menjangan Island. Next to the jetty at Pos 3 heading to the West is the Coral Gardens. Shallow water, beautiful corals, loads of fish. What more do you need.

These are not the pirates you’re looking for
Now the infamous Flag
So here is the sample for a Piratical Sea Rovers Hoodie. Anyone interested?
I can also vouch for how warm you get wearing a fleece lined jacket at midday 8 degrees south of the equator. Who said models don’t work hard
Me, My Camera and I
The Captains going Solo. Who’s not with me?
Seriously though we’ll be offering the chance to break free from the shackles of buddydom. How many times have you been on a dive trip and been given a buddy who is more of a liability than a buddy? How many times have you taken your camera out and wished you didn’t have a buddy with you? Or been with a Photographer and had to hang around waiting for them to take the shot.
The SDI Solo Diving course is about learning to be independent as much as its about diving on your own. There are many situations where having a buddy along just doesn’t always work. What happens if you loose your buddy, are you prepared to take care of yourself? This is where the SDI Solo Diving course comes into its own (forgive the pun).
Lets face it at one point or another, you will be diving alone, whether you want to or not.
Those interested in learning more can Start Here where you can find more information and links to e-learning SDI Solo Diver theory.
