Diving & Snorkeling in Lembeh, Lembeh, North Sulawesi Indonesia, Sulawesi
The Lembeh Strait, located between the mainland of North Sulawesi and Lembeh Island, is well-known worldwide for its incredible ‘muck diving’ and offers year-round diving and snorkeling opportunities. Smaller critters can be found in the depths and shallows of the muddy waters that usually wouldn’t be found on regular dives, making Lembeh a honeypot for diving coinesseurs. You may spot some pretty peculiar species, such as the lionfish, blue ringed and mimic octopuses, orangutan crabs, pygmy seahorses, banded eels and sea snakes to name a few.
Around Lembeh Island, many more relatively untouched dive and snorkeling spots are filled with fascinating habitats and unique creatures. Expert guides will ensure you are taken to a variety of locations, spotting out marine life along the way.
Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
