NAD-Lembeh Resort Lionfish Corals

Wide Angle Wednesday

Since the conditions at the dive sites in the North of Lembeh are perfect at the moment, I have been focusing mainly on wide angle photography. Sites like Yiko Yansi, Dante’s Wall, California Dreaming, Angel’s Windows and Pulau Putus offer some fantastic wall, coral reef and cavern dives! Although diving in Lembeh is dominated by finding small critters and creatures, they can also be found on sites where both wide angle and macro subjects are present.

NAD-Lembeh Resort Article Garuda Magazine Colours

NAD in Garuda Inflight Magazine

We’ve had the honor to welcome Tommy Schultz, editor for the Garuda inflight magazine “Colours” at NAD. As a result, he has put together a great article about diving in Lembeh and with one of the most experienced dive guides. Paulus started his dive career almost 30 years ago with muck diving pioneer Larry Smith and we’re proud to call him the Supervisor of our dive team.

Gäste Portrait – Werner Malle

Immer mal wieder haben wir „Wiederholungstäter“ hier im NAD-Lembeh Resort. So auch in den vergangenen Wochen: „Opa Werner“ aus Deutschland macht bereits zum fünften Mal bei uns Urlaub!

Wobei Urlaub für den mittlerweile 84-jährigen nicht im Vordergrund steht, viel lieber filmt Werner mit seiner Videokamera samt Gehäuse und Keldan Lampen interessante Kreaturen oder aber auch mal nur Korallen auf seinen mindestens drei Tauchgängen pro Tag. Da bleibt nur wenig Zeit für Anderes, aber für einen interessante Tauchgeschichte aus seinem Leben ist Werner immer zu haben.

Installing a New Mooring

Yesterday afternoon, we went diving and the strong South wind we are experiencing at the moment had caused the mooring on the divesite we were on  to slip, and sadly there was another boat there using an anchor. We just used a bunch of fuel waiting in deeper water for the divers to come up.  Neither option is good for the environment.

Mating Mandarin Fish

It’s just before the sun disappears and most of us divers feel like having a beer, when the actual magic on the reef happens. Mating Mandarin Fish are something all divers should experience at least once during their stay in Lembeh. It’s when one of the most beautiful and stunning fish appears briefly to mate around sunset time in order to avoid any bright light.
