© Critters at Lembeh Resort
The Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi is world famous for its wonderful, photogenic underwater critters. In fact, the Strait is only a long and narrow strip that separates the mainland from the Lembeh Island. But look closer and dive into its blue waters and discover a completely different world filled with fascinating and most colourful tropical underwater life that is loved for its wide range of small critters.
WHY WE LOVE DIVING LEMBEH
The World's absolute best muck diving
Rare and unusual marine life you se anywhere else
Frogfish fan? Eight different species can be found here
Dive sites in Lembeh range in depth from 15 to 25m. Divers experience very little current and the waters remain a warm 24 to 30° C throughout the year. Visibility can range from 5m to 20m dependent on the season. But when you're in the muck looking for macro, that isn't a concern. And yet strangely enough this area is home to some massive marine life that are found almost nowhere else on earth.
The unique ecosystem of Lembeh has made this the home of nudibranch, flamboyant squid, mimic octopus and the furry frogfish. Their exceptional beauty have made these creatures the subject of many an underwater photographers.
