/// Lembeh – muck diving capital of the world



diving lembeh straits


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.

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.

To take advantage of the abundance of reef-life at shallow depths, we generally encourage our guests to:

Dive no deeper than 25m
Spend longer at shallow depths, meaning that dives are frequently more than 60 minutes
