Comments 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.
