The 'Muck' Diving in Lembeh Strait

Lembeh Straits is known as the muck diving capital of the world. Muck dives consist of sandy black slopes with good visibility, approximately 10-15m. It is a macro-photographers dream, as the slopes are teaming of all sorts of fascinating critters and the black sand reduces back-glare. Muck dives are the main reason many divers return to us, in Lembeh, time and time again.

Lembeh also has some fascinating ship wrecks. They are covered in both corals and creatures making them fantastic to explore

Lembeh Strait is the Mecca of UW photographers

World famous for its macro life, this is most probably simply the best place in the world for macro photography! Lembeh Strait plays host to a cornucopia of weird and wonderful creatures to be found here and here alone and dive in Lembeh Strait is a unique experience with no equals in the world.

We moor over shallow black sandy slopes where seahorses and nudibranchs are in abundance. Then there are the inimicus devilfish, pegasus sea moths, frogfish, flying gurnards, wonderpus, mimic, blue ring and coconut octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, hairy frogfish, Ambon scorpion fish, ornate ghost pipefish, ribbon eels and many other species.

Truly a one-off opportunity for all photographers and anyone looking for the unusual and unseen. You are sure to see something that you have never seen before, no matter how experienced you are.

Last but not least, Lembeh is also surrounded by sites with small walls and slopes full of soft corals. Lembeh diving truly does have something for everyone.
