Two Papuan Boys of to a big Bali adventure

Working at the Ahe Dive resort and dealing with foreign dive tourists already changed their lives a lot, but now more adventure is coming up for Nomini and Lupi.  For the first time they will leave Papua to learn more about being a diveguide in Bali. In advance we would like to thank Aquamarine in Bali for making this possible. It will be an enormous experience for these boys. Also their families and all other staff at Ahe are excited and looking forward to the experience that they will bring back to ahe after their three months traineeship. During the next three months we will keep everyone up to date on the adventures of Lupi and Nomini, two great Papuan boys determined to become professional dive guides.

Lupi master in command

The crew of the yacht Meduse heard about our beautiful island with our resident whale sharks and decided to travel half the ocean to pay us a visit. The captain called in the help of our team to guide the yacht to a save anchor place. For thirty minutes our dive guide Lupi was master in command of the 60 meter yacht. Exactly on ‘Lupi’s’ spot he commanded the captain to drop anchor. The following two days we dived with the Medusa crew between schooling whale sharks. The crew already had the opportunity to M/Y meduse at Ahe Dive Resortdive in hotspots like Palau, Galapagos and Antartica but they said they never encounter anything like this in the world. Some crew members even deleted all their pictures to save room for the whale sharks. Lupi stayed that night on the yacht as guest of honour. When he returned to Ahe next day he was speechless and still a bit freezing due to the air condition.
