Comments This is the second time that we have had the pleasure of diving with NAD Lembeh, the last time was last year, 2012, me an my wife. This time we took three other dive buddies and we all agree on this report.
This is an outstanding diving operation. The DMs, Stenley and his Team, know all the dive sites--and the critters that they find for you. The once-a-week Mandarin fish dive was spectacular, with dozens of them, and the largest I have seen in my life--great pictures. There are other critters: leaf fish, frogfish, scorpion fish, ghost pipefish, electric clams, sea moths, wonderpus, esturine stonefish, shaggy and hairy frogfish, coconut and longarm octopi, snake eels, cuttlefish, ambon scorpion fish, halgerda nudis, Bobbit worm (only here), flying helmet ganard pigmy and regular seahorses--and on and on! It is relatively easy (although long) to get there since SilkAir now flys direct from Singapore to Manado, Indonesia. Great trip--Great Resort. We'll return!
