Diving Holidays to Lembeh, Indonesia: An Introduction

A 12 km long canal divides the coast from the Island of Lembeh , and due to particular current movements and sediment rich in nutrients, it is home to strange and numerous marine creatures.

North Sulawesi offers unparalleled marine biodiversity, with a wide range of dive experience options. But for divers interested in searching out encounters with bizarre and beautiful critters, Lembeh Strait, located near the port town of Bitung, hosts the best muck diving on the planet. And besides the sand, divers can take the plunge on pinnacles, walls and slopes of extravagant hard and soft coral gardens as well as a number of wrecks, some dating from WWII. Diversity is the operative word here.

Lembeh is considered a paradise for macro-photography, plankton rich water creates nutrients for some small and rare creatures. Often the plankton means that visibility is reduced, and the sea-bed is formed from volcanic sand, alternating with coral formations in mainly soft coral, which create perfect hiding places for the marine life. These unusual dives, which are often considered muck dives, offer the photographer the best chance to meet some mysterious creatures like Pigmy seahorse, frog fish, hairy frogfish, Cockatoo wasp-fish, blue ribbon eel, mandarin fish, leaf scorpion fish, nudibranchs and some rarity like the mimic octopus.

Discovered only few years ago, it is also known as one of the best dive sites in the world amongst world photographers and marine biologist.
