NEH Lembeh is one of about 7 dive operators in the famous Lembeh Straits,
the muck diving capital of Indonesia [and perhaps the world].  The staff
was excellent, and the dive masters are superb at finding the tiny
creatures.  The manager Simon is very helpful, and his assistant Surge can
fix almost anything.  Our DM was Stanley, and he was a hard worker with
excellent eyes.  All the dives are pretty much the same.  Drop to about 70
ft, and slowely move up the sloap, finding fascinating creatures for the
next 75 minutes. Great fun seeing frogfish, seahorses, octopus, leaf fish,
harlinquen shrimp, guynard, blue ring octopus, hairy crab, sea dragon,
scorpionfish, shaggy frogfish, and a million nudibranc.  I love big water
and palagics, so was wondering if I would like this type of diving, but my
wife and I would return tomorrow, and probably will in 2013.  Most of the
other dive operators in the area are more expensive than NAD Lembeh, but
couldn't be any better.  Accomodations were fine, food was very good to
excellent, and staff was always smiling.  Great 5 days of diving.
