Lembeh Strait Diving Holidays: An Overview

It's no secret that the Lembeh Strait, between Pulau Lembeh and North Sulawesi, is one of the best places for diving in Indonesia. Touted as the 'muck diving capital of the world', beautiful reefs are few and far between, however, there's no shortage of weird and wacky marine creatures to look out for.

Typically, divers head to the Lembeh Strait looking to photograph the area's bizarre-looking marine life. On a typical critter dive, it's not unusual to come across hairy frogfish, ornate ghost pipefish or flamboyant cuttlefish, which provide a stark contrast with the area's black sandy bottom.

However, with roughly 90 dive sites in and around the area, there's a huge choice when it comes to diving in Lembeh Strait, from haunting wreck dives like the Mawali Wreck to infamous critter dives such as Hairball. There are also a handful of wonderful coral dive sites to choose from, with California Dreaming and Angel's Window being a couple of our favourites.

If you're thinking of diving in Lembeh Strait on your next holiday to Indonesia, our Original Diving team can help you put together a custom itinerary for a seamless trip from start to finish.
