Lembeh Strait, Bitung

4.7
Experience the mysterious and abstract underwater world of Lembeh Strait. The strait is best explored by "muck diving": exploring the ocean floor and the strange marine life that gathers there. Grab an underwater camera and enjoy the fantastic photography opportunities that these dives offer. You'll be seeing lionfish, nudibranchs, octopuses, and many other exotic species. If this is your first time, hire a guide who can help you find some of the little creatures that hide from plain sight.

    Best in the world for macro and muck diving. Strange critters unseen anywhere else. Tiny but colorful. See it to believe.  more »

    For almost 20 years, I regularly dive in Lembeh. It's always amazing what there's a unique underwater fauna. It remains only to hope the permanent new once bounded by resorts. 30 photographing divers are too much even for a Frogfish or a snail. Here should be worked on a solution / restriction, so there's this little gem in a few years.

    For the small hobby divers. We need to find a club to a maximum of 2 divers per guide, or you lose a lot.
