Critter Capital Lembeh
Lembeh is famous for some world class muck diving, also called the critter capital! I admit it, it’s not necessarily something you get into after your first open water dive. However, when it comes to easy diving conditions, Lembeh is a great place. And therefore, also perfectly suitable for diving with kids.
Three Little Fish
We get a few families each year visiting Lembeh, most of the kids however don’t dive (yet). Different to the family which stayed with us for the past 3 weeks with their 3 kids: all of them are scuba divers (or should I say little fish) already! With the kids being very comfortable in the water, we’ve had a lot of fun together. Diving almost every day, we were looking for different species of fishes, critters, creatures – and of course, blowing bubble rings.
Easy Dives, Lots To See!
Conditions are perfect in Lembeh if you’re diving with kids. Protected bays without any current, good visibility, warm water and shallow reef tops or coral patches with lots to see! Most of the time we were scanning the sand for Octopuses, Sting Rays and Nudibranchs. Some of the dive sites in Lembeh have beautiful patches with soft and hard corals, where we found Broadclub Cuttlefish laying eggs and Reef Squids hunting.
Underwater Family Portrait
Of course, the family’s diving adventure could not end before taking a group picture. All 5 divers in an underwater family portrait, how awesome is that!
