THIS WEEK IN LEMBEH…Blue Ringed Octopus are out in force along with Wonderpus, Pontohi Pygmy Seahorse, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, Giant, Painted and Hairy Frogfish, and the ultimate of the Lembeh hairy creatures – the Hairy Octopus Plus, where are all of these humungous Stonefish coming from? We’re seeing them everywhere!
Find out more about diving Lembeh Straits with us.
Lots of scorpion leaf fish in all ranges of colours, eagle rays, giant trevellies, schools of tuna down in the deep plus crocodile fish galore!! We don’t see many normally but this week they have been out in abundance including 4 hanging out together at Barracuda point. Thanks to Jimmy our DMT for this great shot! Crocodile fish can live to be 14 years old and start off entirely black before developing their amazing camouflage skin as adults!

We are really please to announce that our new swimming pool in Bunaken is now complete and ready for use!
We started it in Jan with the digging and transport of materials, and it was finally finished on 27 July. We had an official opening by the local village head and community leaders such as the village priest, and we invited all the workers to come and have a swim! Soon after this it was open to guests.
