Comments Let me start by saying that my previous muck diving experience in PNG was very boring after about 3 dives.Lembeh is totally different! I wish I had done more days in Lembeh because not only is there the muck, but there is soft coral in the shallows filled with colorful fish. a welcome addition!
The editor of Undercurrent wrote a very informative report on Two fish [both Lembeh and Bunaken]in 2018.Read it!!!.He's absolutely correct about bringing microfiber clothing.The rooms had a standing fan [no a.c.] that was fine in the dry season[I'm sure a.c. would be really nice in the rainy season.The internet worked fine in Lembeh [unlike in Bunaken].There were some complaints about the food, specifically the fish being very dry.No problem for me because I brought tartar sauce from the U.S.
Would I go back? In a heartbeat!Next time,I would spend 3/4 of my days in Lembeh and the rest in Bunaken [and I'm a wall diving fanatic!].
