Ideal for: singles and couples of all diving and snorkelling experience


  • Situated at the meeting point of the Celebes and Molucca Seas, just off the west coast of northern Sulawesi, the Lembeh Straits are the muck diving capital of the world. At first glance the black sandy slopes littered with sea weed, algae and coconut husks appear lifeless, but there is much to be found for those who look hard enough. Nutrient rich currents driven through the straits have produced an astonishing variety of marine life and are one of the best places to tick some critters off your wishlist.
  • Regular sightings of Wonderpus, Mimic, Blur Ring and Coconut Octopus, Cuttlefish, Frogfish of all varieties including the photographer’s favourite the Hairy Frogfish.
  • Seahorses, including a variety of Pygmies and the newly discovered Lembeh Sea Dragon, Pipefish, Lionfish, Scorpionfish, Nudibranchs of all shapes and sizes, and much much more are to be found.
  • Lembeh is not just about muck diving as there are a number of wrecks and reefs to explore. It is always worth keeping one eye to the blue as you never know what may be gliding silently past!
  • Night dives in Lembeh can be unforgettable with a whole new eco-system coming to life.
