Red Sea Aggressor Trip Winner Announced!

Over the course of the last several weeks, Bluewater Travel clients offered their valuable insight by writing reviews for destinations, resorts, liveaboards, and dive operators on our website. Every review served as an entry into our raffle for a big prize--a free liveaboard dive excursion on the new Red Sea Aggressor! 



Have you ever wished you could give something back to the underwater world that has provided you with beautiful and fun experiences since the moment you learned to dive? Are you ready to dive for a worthy cause?

Buddy Dive is offering a new PADI Coral Restoration Specialty Course, which will give you that opportunity! There are several different levels requiring different time and dive commitments, including:

Kungkungan Bay Resort has made some big upgrades to their resort, which include a new and improved reception area, referbishing 9 rooms (including adding some wood floors) and more.

Also new is a weekly "One Hour Culture Show", which showcases local traditions for visiting divers. KBR staff members perform Tari Piring Dance from the island of Minangkabau and The Tumatenden dance, a fairy tale about an ancient couple in North Sulawesi. Kolintang music and a guitar trio provide music for the show.
