Raya Goes Bunaken Exploration on September was great success according to all divers. Organizationg of the trip, hospitality of Living Colours Diving Resort and breath taking underwater views made the trip unforgettable experience.

In spring 2012 Living Colours Diving Resort and another Finnish dive operator Raya Divers put their wise heads together, and now was the time for the first dive adventure as a team. Thailand based Raya Divers introduced its regular guests to world known Bunaken National Marine Park and its huge variety of dive sites. Leader of the trip, marine biologist Markus Dernjatin, took divers even closer to the underwater world and its creatures with his expertise of the subject.

One of the divers was 39 years old Finnish woman Christa Winqvist, who attended the trip with her good friend.

- I read about the trip from Raya Divers' newsletter and told straight away to my friend that this trip is made for us! We have travelled together and been diving around the world but Bunaken was one place we never visited before, Winqvist tells.

When Winqvist and her friend found out that marine biologist Markus Dernjatin will be joining the trip, the decicion was easy to make.

- We thought that having a marine biologist on the same trip we will get the most out of the vacation. And we were right! It was amazing to have marine expert on the boat with us. After the dives there was always many guestions about the marine life and now we got the answers straight away, she raves.

Besides diving there was theory lessons about coral reefs every day. Dernjatin lectured about fish and other marine creatures and their behaviour as well.

- The marine lectures were excellent bonus of the trip! I learned new information about the precious coral reefs of this planet and the unique life on them. Now I can say that I understand underwater life more that I did in the past.

Living Colours Diving Center and its staff olso got credit from Winqvist and her friend.

- Our local dive guides were absolutely amazing! Steven and Iwan found us all the tiniest creatures and took good care of us. Underwater views were as great as I hoped but the variery of marine life really blew me away! I could't hope for more, she says.

- I will definitely return to Bunaken one day.
