Diving in Lembeh Strait is commonly referred to as “Muck Diving” or “Critter Hunting”. This unique type of diving generally revolves around the search for small unique “critters” that inhabit the black sand slopes of the area. The majority of the diving is done in the calm bays or along the lush coastline of both mainland Sulawesi and Lembeh Island.
Lembeh Resort is ideally situated at the midpoint of Lembeh Island, allowing for easy access to the majority of Dive Sites in less than 15 minutes by purpose built Dive Boats. Divers are divided into small groups with guest to guide ratio of maximum 4:1 therefor everyone is ensured a personal service.
Critters@Lembeh divers are brought to the dive sites in comfort with one of their numerous twin-engine dive boats. Each boat is fully covered with plenty of padded camera & accessory storage. Each guest is provided with a “locker” to store their equipment in a spacious covered gear area.
Critters@Lembeh Resort provides guests with a spacious “Camera Room”, with individual workstations with 100/220V voltage-stabilized power sources. Towels are provided, as is a compressed air blower. The camera room, located just steps from the dive area, is locked each evening. In addition to the camera room, there are also three large freshwater camera rinse tanks, reserved specifically for cameras.
