The best dive job candidates went on a journey! We had the opportunity to travel to the north-west of Bali, where the Menjangan National Park is situated.
Our first two days (and nights), we spent on the “Markisa”, a lovely wooden vessel operated by Abyss World Indonesia. Our hosts Dan Stilwell and Claudine Daigneault did not hesitate to fulfil all our wishes and teach us a lot at the same time! They run an amazing innovative boat operation, combining diving with Balinese culture. No matter if on land or underwater, there is always something to explore with Abyss World.
The Markisa took us from Permuteran to The Menjangan, an eco-resort situated in the heart of the Menjangan National Park. This four star resort is absolutely worth a stay! The definite highlight so far. I felt at home and comfortable instantly. Retreating from our busy everyday life and relaxing in a purely natural environment: heaven! Diving, horse riding, massages and celebrating Denny’s 20th birthday were our only obligations.
These four days went by too fast and we all wished we could have stayed longer. Nevertheless, back to reality!
