Please help in the effort to prevent mining on this beautiful little Indonesian island where I have stayed and gone SCUBA diving. Currently there are white sand beaches, green lush jungle and healthy coral reefs. If they mine this island there will be nothing but raped bare dirt. Please watch the video and sign up using the link below to help prevent mining on Bangka Island.
Sign up to protest the proposed Bangka Island mine at Rainforest-rescue.org.
A few images from my stay on Bangka Island.
I have more images from North Sulawesi, Indonesia (and other dive destinations) in my Underwater Galleries!Read More
While I was diving in Komodo Marine Park I was fascinated with the small reef fish. They were all different colors and they would swoop in and out of the coral in a choreographed fish ballet. Here are a few images of the reef fish dancing along the reef.

At Seraya we were greeting by the staff who hauled all our bags to our room; and us to the reception/dining area for a cold drink. We did the necessary paperwork and were shown to our room. After settling in and eating lunch we headed to the dive area where we tried on rental gear and helped our assigned dive guide, Wit, to set up our gear to our liking. For the rest of our stay we didn’t have to touch anything except our wetsuits, masks and snorkels, and cameras. The dive staff takes care of everything!Read More

Now I have to admit that we have been doing the tourist thing so probably not the real Bali culture but the “tourist facing” culture.Read More
