Diving Mecca for Critters

Considered as the diving Mecca for critters and macro marine life this area has rapidly gained popularity amongst macro photographers. The extremely diverse marine habitat in this stretch of water offers a plethora of macro species, many of which can found nowhere else on the planet.

Diving here is the ultimate experience for photographers in search of the unusual and unseen. It is often referred to as muck divers paradise as most of the sites are either sandy areas or small reefs inhabited by many exotic underwater.

With over 30 dive sites to choose from and even a WWII wreck all within a short boat ride over calm waters from the resort it is no surprise that the Lembeh Strait is a world class dive destination.

Dive Sites in Lembeh

Lembeh Straits offer more than 30 dive sites that are within 5 to 20min boat ride from the resort. We don’t have a regular dive sites as critters constantly move around the dive sites. All the dive sites have an average depth of 3m to 25m, with little or no current. The dive sites in Lembeh Straits are mostly black sand, muck or rubble, but there are a couple sites with nice corals as well.
