EAST LEMBEH – LOTS OF REEFS AND WALLS
Around 60 minutes boat ride away from NAD, East Lembeh offers a completely different scenery to what most divers are used to in the Lembeh Strait. Beautiful coral reefs and walls with sea fans as well as white sand can be found here. The visibility is normally around 20-30 meters so perfect conditions for a wide-angle day!
A BREAK FROM THE MUCK
Diving in East Lembeh gives our guests a nice break from the daily muck dives. As much as everybody enjoys hunting for weird little critters and creatures, after 10 days of diving it’s nice to bring some colorful reefs back into the mix. The area around Pulau Dua is yet perfect for the “hardcore” macro fans. With white sandy slopes we still get to see tiny little Frogfishes, different species of Pipefishes including Braun’s Pughead Pipefish as well as Velvet and Halimeda Ghost Pipefish!

FUN SURFACE INTERVALS
Most surface intervals are spent relaxing in between dives and chilling on our sun deck. On our day trips there’s so much to see though! It’s fun to take the drone up to get a different perspective, fly it over to the island and admire the beautiful blue colors of the sea. When the kids from the close by villa see our boat, they immediately swim or row over on little canoes to show off their awesome freedive skills. After our day trip to East Lembeh, all 10 divers come back with memory cards full of great pictures and big smiles on their faces.

Our jetty allows our guests dignified and quick boat entries – all our dive boats can be moored simultaneously, so there is no wading through the shallows to get on the boat for the dive!
