Generally they wanted you to stay above 80 feet (not a problem in Lembeh)
and the dive time should be 60 minutes, but usually it was OK to go 10
minutes longer.

Diving is done off one of two fast boats that can handle about 8-10 divers
comfortably. They have a "mothership" that is the base for
starting all dives from and for surface intervals between dives. The small
boats aren't well equipped for cameras as they are just placed on surfaces
in the stern of the boat, but as the dive sites are generally less than 10
minutes from the mothership this isn't much of a problem.

The mothership is well equipped with two large, deep freshwater tanks for
rinsing cameras, and also a camera bench for working on cameras.

There is also an area for charging batteries in the dry section of the

We were initially disappointed to learn that the cottages were about a 15
minute drive from the water.

However, transportation to and from the water is in newer clean and well
cared from vans with air conditioning so it turned out to be no issue at

Service at both at the boat and Cottages was simply outstanding! I can't
say enough about how well they took care of our group during our 3 day
stay. I've never had this level of service from any other place I've dived
in my 7 years of diving.

The manager at the resort quickly resolved a number of issues our group had
and always solved them in our favor.

I highly recommend this resort and dive operation if you are planning to
dive Lembeh Strait.
