Comments We dove with Siren in Apr of 2018 see report here ([undercurrent.org link])

They survived COVID! We returned to Lembongan and they helped arrange everything including ferry over from Bali. Their service didn't change pre/post COVID.

We dove with the Frogfish king Danang, saw Mola Mola, Manta and so many little critters too!

The boat dives are from smaller boats you back roll into the water and climb a ladder out. If you need help, you can pass 100% of your gear up before climbing the ladder. These guys do a fantastic job setting up and handling your gear. Once you show up at the shop with your gear, they take it from there. Taking it to the boat, setting it up (they have you inspect everything before you gear up, and even called my wife's attention to a split in her inflator hose), cleaning and returning it to you at the end of your trip included.

I got to do 4 dives with them this trip. Day 1 was turtle day. Everywhere you looked on dive 2 there was a turtle munching on coral & sponges. Day 2 we got to dive 2 of the spots I remembered from 2018 Crystal Bay & Manta Point. Both sites are amazing! Crystal Bay we saw seahorse, mantis shrimp, schools of fish and the Mola Mola :) Manta Point didn't disappoint with life either! Mantas everywhere you looked.

We stayed at Seaweed Guesthouse this trip as it is a short walk to the dive shop. We really loved the place. My wife had told them I liked radlers so they went out and bought a case of Bintang Lemon Radlers for me to enjoy! Nice small pool, water temp was 25C. Breakfast was included and was nothing special but excellent no less. They serviced the rooms daily, rooms have AC and ceiling fans.
