Comments [None]Sulawasi and Lembeh Straits is a destination for experienced divers who have seen it all.
It is a super location for photographers to find the are and the weird critters of the marine world. Our resorts Lembeh and Murex were excellent resorts - super dive staffs and excellent food. Water temp was 78 degrees ,so a 3mm worked fine for our Minn group.Expect visibility to be about 30ft but the critter sighting were marvelous.Should bring a critter stick for poking around the muckand to hold yourself if a current exists. If you want to find nudibranches
these two locations have them. One day the owner had the boat leave early so we could be
with a large group of dolphins that traveled between the islands. On Bunaken we found a lot
steep coral walls loaded with soft corals and many turtles. Often on these dives we were treated with strong currents, so we did fun easy drift dives. Lembeh Straits diving and the muck diving off of Murex Resort are must locations for the diver who enjoys the unusual
critters of the south Pacific.

UW Photo Comments [
Most excellent shore set-up at both resorts . On board the boat the staff were very accommodating and would carry everything to the boat gladly] Our group had a very good
time and the staff was most fun on board the boat. Also the dive guides were excellent at finding every marine critter you can ask for. You request it and they find it and a whole lot more, some you needed good eyes to even see the tiny critter.
