“Best Muck Diving”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

The best muck diving on the planet. Get your macro camera out and go to town. Amazingly bizarre critters down there.

“underwater paradise..awesome creatures, lovely place”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I love it, I love it, I love it...

So many things to seeee...so weird, so magical, yet colorful...

We managed to get 3 dives with my group of 9 divers....great muck dive indeed..only in a short time I have seen cutey pygmy seahorses, mimic octopus, flamboyant jellyfish, tons of nudi branches, frog fish, puffer fish, stone fish, lion fish, murray,and soooo many only-God-knows-what marine creatures down there...

With my amateur experience in underwater photography, I was so happy with what I saw and photographed..

My dive masters, - Sinek, Meta, Yogi, Sammy, Andrew, Amang, are the best!
Do come and have a lovely dive here in Lembeh, underwater macro paradise...

Would definitely love to come back...

“Spectacular diving”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Great muck dives, some areas have beautiful coral, little to no current, dive sites never crowded, great dive guides, friendly people. All the oddities you see in the magazines and books are out there and a good guide knows how to find 'em. Couple of fun wrecks to dive to break up the muck. Nudi Falls is a great dive and it's close.
