Message from Annabel

Dear AquaMarine Diving – Bali Associate,

As with just about everywhere else on the planet, Bali’s weather patterns have been quite mixed up. Our December to February “Wet” Season was very dry,  but in May we started to have some heavy nighttime rainfalls. My garden’s looking lovely!

You will have heard/read worldwide this year’s coral-bleaching from El Niño is the worst on record. And now La Niña has come to bring rain to this region. La Niña intensifies “normal” weather: Expect dry, it’ll be arid; expect wet, there’ll be floods.

In Bali we’ve seen some bleached corals in the shallows on the east and north east coasts, with patches in north west Bali. Sadly, we’ve had a number of divers coming here from Thailand who report it’s been catastrophic there.

The 2015/16 El Niño contributed to this being the planet’s warmest year since the 1880s (or maybe earlier), that’s 130 years! As the ocean’s surface cooled, La Niña started. I’m told El Niño extremes are greater, but La Niña lasts longer.

There was a noticeable increase in guests from Europe in the first half of this year – whether the (45%) increase from the UK continues following the vote to leave the EU, remains to be seen.

AMD-B had a great time at ADEX (Asia Dive Expo) in April. As always, it was a well-attended show. Also, for the first time, we exhibited at TDEX in Bangkok in May.

Bali Mother and Baby House
Bali Mother and Baby House

Regular followers of AMD-B’s Bali eNewsletter know we donate USD50/month to different charities plus we give our guests the opportunity to donate. For July-Sept 2016, we have chosen a new charity: ‘Bali Mother and Baby House’, they also have a Go Fund me page for anyone interested: www.gofundme.com/balibabyhouse.

PS: I’d be delighted if you forward this e-Newsletter (to a friend/dive club) however please contact me if you’d like something for publication.

2016 Interns

Sari and Roy are very close to becoming PADI Divemasters! They’ve passed the majority of the requirements with flying colours. They now have only a few items to finish. Eg: 800 metre Swim, and Mapping a Dive Site. They remain cheerful despite being tired, and bring big smiles to the office when they aren’t out diving! I am confident they will become conscientious and reliable PADI Dive Professionals.

Drybags

AMD-B Drybag
AMD-B Drybag

We have re-re-re-ordered some more of our fabulous, bright yellow AMD-B Drybags. We are keeping the price of only USD20! If you book 4+ days of diving with AMD-B, we’ll give you one for free.

Donations to the Smile Foundation

AMD-B makes USD50 monthly donations to different charities throughout the year. We pass details/info to our clients, inviting them to also donate. In April-June 2016, our chosen charity was the Smile Foundation who received USD150 from AMD-B and Rp300,000 (approx USD25) from our divers.
