First Look at the Lembeh Strait

 Diving from dawn to dusk, trading underwater stories from around the world, some of the best muck diving in the world, capped off with sunsets behind a huge volcano...this is how Heidi and I spent our week on Lembeh Island. This was our second time staying at NAD Lembeh Dive Resort. The guides here are pretty incredible at what they do. They are not dive masters, they are not there to check your air, or count off your safety stop, they are there to find critters.

  The black sand and rubble fields in the Lembeh Strait contain some of wildest marine creatures. If you are an avid scuba diver and things like wonderpus, hairy frogfish, and flamboyant cuttlefish are on your life list of creatures to see then head to the Lembeh Strait. Relatively mild currents, the abundance of spectacular wildlife, and the characteristic black sand of this area make the Lembeh Strait a favorite destination for underwater photographers. Heidi and I did 40 dives between the two of us over our week at Lembeh.
  Stay tuned for some crazy critters.
