Bob Island (also known as Pulau Sinyaru), is an island about and hour and a half boat ride off Padang, is a relatively undiscovered and unspoilt by humans. Marine life thrives here due to the topography and amazing visibility. The coral, which is very much alive and thriving, are a refuge to both pelagic and macro marine life. There is plenty to explore and you are guaranteed to see a different species every dive you take. It is a heaven for underwater photographers, both macro and wide angled.
AWARE Week is back! Ocean lovers around the world are invited to join in the AWARE Week celebrations and act for change. With a focus on encouraging more scuba divers to remove, record and report marine debris found on the seafloor, including reporting debris-free sites (which is just as important), this year’s AWARE Week provides a new opportunity to build bridges between community action and policy change.
