This remote island offers incredible wall diving and coral reefs which are home to a resident turtle population. Other diving highlights include muck diving, wreck diving, sharks, eagle rays and awesome macro life. Our resorts in Bunaken and Lembeh are just a few hours apart by land and sea.
Lembeh Island, North Sulawesi:
Lush green and bursting with nature from rare birds through to the world’s smallest primate – the tarsier monkey. Our Lembeh resort is a popular choice for underwater photographers due to the highly unusual and rare marine life which is found here. Lembeh and Bunaken combinations offer a great contrast of reef and muck.

Set on the sea front, our beautiful resort offers comfortable accommodation and incredible views of Mount Agung.

3month summer internship
If you start your internship in May/June then we are happy to extend your internships by another 1-2mths (max total 3mths) so you will get some great experience working in a busy dive shop over the high season July-Sep. We do NOT charge for this extension – it’s completely free and you just pay for your room and board. You’ll also be making months of incredible diving – for free!
We can only offer this extension when you are here and we see you over the duration of the 4/6weeks Divemaster Internship. The reason is because we can only only offer extensions beyond 4/6weeks to people who fit in with our team – team work in the dive centre is the most important thing, and we are happy to extend for up to 3 months for the right people but this is a decision we make when we have got to know you – and you us!
