TWO DIVERS – ONE GUIDE

Our experienced, English speaking dive guides will give you all the time you want to discover and enjoy the famous “Critter Capital of the World” at your own pace. And they are happy to show you the things that you might otherwise have missed. Tell them your wish-list: mimic octopus, hairy frogfish, pigmy seahorses, specific nudibranchs, harlequin shrimps, ghost pipefish, boxer crabs, flamboyant cuttlefish or others? They will find them, if they are around. Every guide has made at least 1200 dives in Lembeh Strait. Very few places on the sea bottom are unfamiliar to them, and even fewer creatures can hide from their experienced eyes. 

Our dive guides and boat crew are all very experienced and are used to work with professional photographers and filmers. They will be happy to help you carry your video and camera gear to and from the boat every day. They will discuss the dive plan with you and what critters you wish to see, assist you underwater, review your dives and identify the fish and critter you might not know. Our dive team takes pride in showing you the best of Lembeh Strait in the best way.

NO DIVE-TIME LIMIT

We do not have any dive time limit as long as you stay within your computer non-deco-limits and you have enough air. We expect that all divers adhere to our house rules: not deeper than 30 meters and no deco-dive profiles. Please do not disturb or touch anything that is alive. Please also read our rules for diving.

DIVE SCHEDULE

Daily dive schedule for the shared boat packages: Leave the resort at 08:00 to make two dives. After the two dives we go back to the lodge to have a freshly prepared lunch. After lunch there is the possibility to do a third day dive. Night dives are scheduled on request and can be done every day – even if you would be the only diver that night.

PRIVATE BOAT/PRIVATE GUIDE

If you think that you might want to visit the same dive site more than once on the same day, or if would like more flexibility in the dive schedule (such as going to sites that are further away and having lunch on the boat), or if you need as much space as you can get or you just do not want to bother with other divers you do not know yet, our private boat service is what you need. Surcharge on your normal dive package IDR 750.000/EUR* 50, -/USD* 55, – per boat per day. This offer is valid for 2 or more dives per day. Minimum 2 divers. For example, if you are with 4 friends, including you, you can get a private boat for the four of you for the price of IDR 187.000 (EUR 12,50*) per person per day.
