“Dive into Lembeh” is nestled in Kasawari Bay, located on the main land of the Lembeh straitjust off the North-East coast of Sulawesi. The resort is located at the Northern end of the strait out of sight of Bitung harbour in the south, offering unspoiled views of Lembeh island.
“Dive into Lembeh” has nine sea view private bungalows, all in the same category.All of our rooms are equipped with TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan, mini bar, safe, a five-gallon water dispenser for hot and cold water, and a private Japanese style stone hot tub.
We also have an open-air restaurant and bar, sea view fire pit area, a swimming pool and a fully equipped divecenter with a spacious camera room.
Lembeh strait is a true macro photographer’s paradise and is famous for its „muck diving“ on black volcanic sand.Muck diving is all about spotting weird and wonderful underwater critters, species that you would normally not find during a regular dive.
Diving in the Lembeh strait means you are diving with a guide who is trained to show you species such as frog fish, hairy frog fish, mimic octopus, blue ringed octopus, banded sea snake, mandarin fish, orangutan crabs, mantis shrimps and many other critters that are hiding on the black volcanic sand, amongst patches of rubble and coral.
Thanks to its protected location, the water’s surface in the Lembeh strait is usually calm and diving is possible throughout the year. The water temperatures reach a comfortable 26-29°C. The dives are usually easy and without much current, and the best thing is, we have two of the most famous dive sites in Lembeh (called „Hairball“ and „Aw Shucks”) as a house reef!Module 4
