A 7.7 scale earthquake that hit Gorontalo last night. Gorontalo City was not affect and Miguel’s Diving, Gorontalo Oasis Hotel and the homes of our staff sustained no damage whatsoever. The affect area is along the remote northwest coast along the Sulawesi Sea. An earthquake is this area cannot generate a tsunami in the southern bay where we dive. Thanks to the many friends and guests who have enquired after our well being.
Diving in Gorontalo is featured in the current edition of Asian Diver. We haven’t seen the article yet but here that the picture of the coconut shell octopus looks really good. Thanks, Sol Foo and William Tan.
Miguel’s Diving just finished opening week of the new dive season with guests from USA, UK and Germany. Because of ocean conditions, dive season officially runs November to April. Each year we add improvements. This year we have our own dock built behind the new dive shop. This week we are laying sod and planting other greenery. Seas are calm, blue, warm and waiting for you.
