Film Shooting

Miguel’s Diving just finished an intensive two-week underwater film shoot. The filmmaker managed to gather some excellent footage that included many of Gorontalo’s unique marine life. There was also some very funny footage of a Blackray goby getting his burrow cleaned out by his shrimp that literally kicked dust all over him. Then there was the coconut shell octopus that like many people want more spacious lodgings but find it a bit of a burden to carry. In the octopus’ case his overly expensive deluxe home came in the form of a beautiful but too large Nautilus shell. We are hoping that the film can be screened during Asian Dive Expo 2008 in Singapore in April. Best wishes to Gabor and Berenike in making sense out of all the footage!

Count Them!

Count on diving in Gorontalo to have some wonderful surprises. Not only are guests enjoying typically flat seas and sunny mornings, but also visibility has been an incredible 25 meters. Even one surreal Salvador Dali Sponge in a corner of a wall was visible from the surface. But today after busily photographing six Bumblebee shrimps, we sighted a pair of marlin also swimming along the surface on the way to the dive boat.
