Kungkungan Bay Resort (KBR)is a very well organized dedicated dive
resort.package included room,3 boat dives/day,meals,bottled water,airport
transfers,taxes,service charge.house reef diving is included from 8AM to
5PM.the house reef is a very nice coral reef.Diving is best done with the
experienced dive guides that will point out all the odd,strange creatures
you came to Lembeh Strait to see.4 divers/guide.All of our dives were over
1 hour & unhurried.Boats were small with easy back roll entry,could
remove gear in the water & sturdy ladder for exit.Our guides Liberty
& Jony were excellent.Night dives & a mandarin fish dive were also
available for 50.00.& were great.Tanks were always 3000 psi &
nitrox was 32.It's all about the muck (sand) diving in Lembeh but we did
dive Angel's Window which was a pretty coral reef pinnacle with swim thru
& reef fish.We saw many odd creatures,fish,& nudis in the
muck...many of them hairy.We were upgraded from a cottage suite to a
traditional house which was very nice,clean with 2 queen beds & a large
stone shower.All rooms had a water view.Restaurant had a large menu &
all meals were ordered.All the staff were very nice & helpful.KBR is
easy to reach using Singapore Air from JFK in NYC to Manado,Indonesia.Tina
with Island Dreams Travel booked our trip& did a great job as always.
