We stayed at both Lembeh and at Gangaa Island and it turned out to be a
good combination. The diving at Lembeh and Gangga complemented each other-I
am glad that we did both. We had a great time and would highly recommend
Lembeh Resort. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable and the setting
was very nice. Food at the resort was very good for the most part. We
really liked the local Minahasan cuisine. The diving was great. People who
had been here previously complained that there had been a turnover of dive
guides such that some of the knowledge about where to find certain things
like rhinopas had been lost. But we thought the diving was fantastic. There
were a couple of boring dives were we were hunting for things in the muck
and did not see very much, but most of the dives were great to amazing. One
of us caught a glimpse of a white tip passing through but aside from that
no big fish. But I was stunned by the numbers of frog fish, ribbon eels,
lionfish and other cool critters. This is really a great location if you
want to see unusual fish. Except for one or two occasions the currents were
basically nonexistent and this made the diving remarkably carefree. This is
also nudibranch heaven. Our last dive was particularly memorable; as our
computers started bordering into the decompresson zone we delighted in
crossing another critter off of our wish list:  wonderpus. The main
negative thing is the trash in the water which was pretty sad. I hope that
this does not negatively impact the astonishing sea life here but
eventually it probably will.
