Lembeh Island -- NE Sulawesi, Indonesia
Dedicated Dive Resort Serving Lembeh Strait
North Sulawesi Scuba Diving -- 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.
NAD Lembeh Resort -- NAD Lembeh Resort features ten air-conditioned lodging rooms and five air-conditioned bungalows. The standard beachfront rooms are at ground level with just two steps. The bungalows, added in 2015, are up approximately a dozen steps. The resort has a comfortable open-air restaurant with adjacent camera room and rebreather facilities. There is a grassy area with sunbeds for people to do a little tanning between dives, and a floating jetty to make access to the boats as easy and comfortable as possible. With a ratio of just two divers to one dive guide, NAD Lembeh may be your diving dream.
Dive Center - NAD Lembeh Resort's dive center features, three well-maintained compressors, a Nitrox membrane system, and a huge filter system to keep your fills clean and dry. There are four comfortable diveboats with fast eco-friendly engines, and a large dive team offering you 2:1 divers to dive guide ratio, the best ratio of any Lembeh Resort. Catering to underwater photographers, the dedicated camera room has well-equipped individual workstations.
Amazing Marine Life -- Lembeh Strait has already been established as the mecca of what is known as muck or critter diving. Professional photographers and film crews are regular visitors to the strait, shooting award-winning images of the extraordinary inhabitants that mesmerize divers dive after dive. Pygmy seahorses, mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, mandarinfish, hairy frogfish, ghost pipefish, rhinopias, pegasus seamoths, banggai cardinalfish, stargazers, bobbit worms, harlequin shrimp, candy crabs, bobtail squid, devilfish, snake eels, etc. The list seems endless, with every dive an opportunity to discover a species new to science. The array of nudibranchs and crustaceans is astounding. The number of cephalopod species on display amazing. The assortment of eels and venomous fish species limitless. "Going macro" will open an entire new world to divers who follow the maxim "go slow and look down". Different months offer a variety of highlights, so repeat guests can always look forward to something new and exciting on subsequent visits.
