/// What type of diving will I experience and what will I see?


On this fanastic safari you’ll get to see the best of Bunaken and Lembeh!


In Bunaken

The dramatic drop-offs offer a huge variety of soft and hard corals that offer a home to an abundance of reef fish such as fusiliers, butterflyfish, sweetlips, cardinal fish and damsel fish.

Turtles, barracudas and reef sharks call the reefs their home as well, and you can also find wall-critters such as scorpion fish, nudibranch, lionfish, and seahorses hidden on the walls.

In Lembeh

It is one of the few places in the world where you will see the elusive hairy frog fish, pygmy sea horses, larger sea horses like the thorny seahorse, mimic octopus, wunderpus and flamboyant cuttlefish to name a few.

This is why its known as the muck diving capital of the world. Lembeh also has some fascinating ship wrecks. They are covered in both corals and creatures making them fantastic to explore.

The above is a selection of images taken from each location. To find out more about the diving in each location, click the links below.
