Gäste Portrait – Werner Malle

Immer mal wieder haben wir „Wiederholungstäter“ hier im NAD-Lembeh Resort. So auch in den vergangenen Wochen: „Opa Werner“ aus Deutschland macht bereits zum fünften Mal bei uns Urlaub!

Wobei Urlaub für den mittlerweile 84-jährigen nicht im Vordergrund steht, viel lieber filmt Werner mit seiner Videokamera samt Gehäuse und Keldan Lampen interessante Kreaturen oder aber auch mal nur Korallen auf seinen mindestens drei Tauchgängen pro Tag. Da bleibt nur wenig Zeit für Anderes, aber für einen interessante Tauchgeschichte aus seinem Leben ist Werner immer zu haben.

NAD Lembeh Photo Fun Week Underwater Tribe Group Photo

Photo Fun Week with the Underwater Tribe

For the fifth time already we’ve been hosting the Underwater Tribe from Bali with photo instructors Mike Veitch, Luca Vaime and Doug Sloss. The number of workshop participants was limited to 16 spaces to ensure everyone gets enough personal time with the instructors. All levels of underwater photographers were welcome and it was incredible to see how each and every one of them improved within only 7 days!

Dive Guide Photo Competition

Dive Guide Photo Competition

The majority of our guests are not only divers but also photographers. Therefore, it is a big plus if you can provide dive guides with a photography background. We have several camera setups for rental, available for our guides whenever they want to go fun diving. In order to give them an incentive to improve their photo skills, we organized a little dive guide photo competition with some great prices!

EFR staff training CPR

EFR staff training can be fun!

Every six months, all our dive guides and boat crew get a quick refresher course of the most important EFR skills. Regular training ensures that everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency – but hopefully we will never need those skills in real life.

CPR, Oxygen Administration, First Aid for hazardous marine life injuries or serious bleeding management, it all sounds totally boring. Why not make the EFR staff training fun instead?

NAD Lembeh Resort Tarsius

Happy Easter from NAD Lembeh

Happy Easter 2017 to all of you! Instead of the Easter Rabbit with white, fluffy ears, we’ve had a little tarsier visiting us. Not sure if he was hiding eggs though?

Tarsiers are small primates, about 10 to 15 cm in size which only live on some islands in Southeast Asia. The enormous eyeballs give the Tarsier a quite unique look: they can be up to 16 mm in diameter and help them hunt for prey and watch out for predators. During the day, Tarsiers rest clinging onto tree branches whereas at night time, they use their powerful hind legs and tail to leap to another branch and catch insects or smaller vertebrates.

Introducing Sonja (or the new Serge)

It’s time to introduce myself properly, so far most of you only know me as “the new Serge”. My name is Sonja, I’m from Germany and decided to move to South East Asia in 2010 to become a dive instructor. Back then, you would always find me diving with a simple point and shoot camera – therefore, it wasn’t very surprising that I finally completed my underwater videography course in 2012.
