Comments Kungkungan Bay Resort sits on the Lembeh straights and is renowned for is muck diving and the rare and unusual creatures that are found there. Having dived for fifty years with thousands of dives in most of great dive sites in the waters listed above I thought I had seen just about everything. But the diving there is beyond description. I saw more exotic creatures on each dive than I have seen the rest of my entire dive career. In the sites where there is coral it is spectacular, but the real reason to go is for the muck diving. The resort is a beautiful facility with a very friendly staff that goes that extra mile to help all of the guests and make their stay memorable. The managers are very enthusiastic about their work and it shows in every detail of their operation. They are currently undergoing a major up date and remodeling of the facility and should be even more wonderful in the near future. I plan to make a return trip next year to enjoy their infectious spirit and joy of the diving and Indonesian life style in the Kungkungan Bay resort.
