MUCK DIVING HEAVEN
“DIVE INTO LEMBEH” is nestled in Kasawari bay and has its own resort, located on the main land of the Lembeh strait, Indonesia - a true macro photographers paradise- just off the north east coast of Sulawesi and is famous for its “muck diving” on black volcanic sand critter infested coral reefs. The resort is located at the northern end of the strait out of sight of Bitung harbor in the south, offering unspoiled views of Lembeh island.
Muck diving is all about spotting weird and wonderful underwater critters, species that you would normally not find during a regular dive.
Diving in the Lembeh strait means you are diving with a guide who is trained to show you species such as frog fish, hairy frog fish, mimic octopus, blue ringed octopus, banded sea snake, mandarin fish, orangutan crabs, mantis shrimps and many other critters that are hiding on the black volcanic sand, amongst patches of rubble and coral.
“Dive into Lembeh” has nine sea view private bungalows -all in the same category.
All of our rooms are equipped with tv, air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini bar, safe and a five gallon water dispenser for hot and cold water. We are also the only resort in Sulawesi where every cottage comes with ac private Japanese style stone hot tub and the best thing is, we have two of the most famous dive sites in Lembeh (called “Hairball and Aw Shucks”) as a house reef!
We also have an open air restaurant and fully stocked bar offer great views of Lembeh Strait. We also have a beach side fire pit area where our guests can hang out and swap diving stories in the evenings. Our swimming pool is fresh water. Our fully equipped Dive Center has Lembeh's largest camera room.
