See my 2006 review.  The diving was just as spectacular.  Last year (Oct)
we had strong winds, some chop, and very cool water:  75 - 79F.  What a
difference a month makes!  This year (Nov), the seas were calm, light
winds, brief, afternoon rains -- otherwise sunny; and, most significantly
MUCH warmer water -- up to 85F.

The critters were more-or-less the same; this year we saw blue-ring, mimic
and wonderpus octopi and the flamboyant cuttlefish -- which we missed last
year.  There were fewer nudibranchs and hairy frogfish.

Again, I highly recommend the destination and specifically Lembeh Resort
for some of the best critter diving we've found.
