Another Hammerhead!

Hammerhead in Banda... in March??

The Banda Sea keeps surprising us. This time we saw a Hammerhead a couple of days ago near Banda Besar when we thought it was not the season. Just another addition to the many unexpected creatures -like Thresher sharks, schooling Devil rays, etc-  that visit Banda coming from the deep sea that surrounds it.

 

The picture was taken by one of our customers (thank you, Samy!) during the safety stop just on 2 meters.

Oct 9th, 2016: Old laptops needed for children's computer lab on Banda

We have supported the re-opening of a computer lab on Banda. The lab was setup more than a year ago supported by a social fund but had to close a few months ago as the operational costs couldn't be covered. It was now revived thanks to our volunteer teacher Masha. Children come there every afternoon to learn about computers, Mathematics and English. The interest and feedback has been very positive but, unfortunately, only 3 computers are functioning and available for more than 30 children. If you are going to visit us for diving and have an old laptop you don't need anymore, we would be very thankful if you could donate it to the lab.
