Our guests Johan and Bets from the Netherlands have visited Lembeh in 2010 already. Compared to a few years ago, they enjoyed diving in the Strait now even more: less trash, more critters, better corals. A big thank you to Johan for some beautiful underwater pictures which he was happy to share with us in our guest gallery.Details
Every six months, all our dive guides and boat crew get a quick refresher course of the most important EFR skills. Regular training ensures that everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency – but hopefully we will never need those skills in real life.
CPR, Oxygen Administration, First Aid for hazardous marine life injuries or serious bleeding management, it all sounds totally boring. Why not make the EFR staff training fun instead?Details
Divers usually get to the point where, after hunting all kinds of different critters, they pick their personal “obsession”. Whether these are Cephalopods, Crustaceans, Gobies, Nudibranchs or Frogfishes – so my weak spot have always been Seahorses. Here in Lembeh, we can find up to six different species on one dive!Details
Get ready for another great DisneyNature movie called “Dolphins” which will be coming to the cinemas in 2018. DisneyNature has just released the trailer for their new movie, in which we follow “Echo”, a young dolphin, on his adventures when he explores the coral reef.Details
Happy Easter 2017 to all of you! Instead of the Easter Rabbit with white, fluffy ears, we’ve had a little tarsier visiting us. Not sure if he was hiding eggs though?
Tarsiers are small primates, about 10 to 15 cm in size which only live on some islands in Southeast Asia. The enormous eyeballs give the Tarsier a quite unique look: they can be up to 16 mm in diameter and help them hunt for prey and watch out for predators. During the day, Tarsiers rest clinging onto tree branches whereas at night time, they use their powerful hind legs and tail to leap to another branch and catch insects or smaller vertebrates.Details
It’s time to introduce myself properly, so far most of you only know me as “the new Serge”. My name is Sonja, I’m from Germany and decided to move to South East Asia in 2010 to become a dive instructor. Back then, you would always find me diving with a simple point and shoot camera – therefore, it wasn’t very surprising that I finally completed my underwater videography course in 2012.Details
We have had a quiet few months at NAD, and have been busy making some improvements!
We now have a new pool and jacuzzi near the main rooms. Custom designed by Simon, and then build by Simon, Serge and help from all of our team we now have a nice capacity pool to enjoy a drink or the relaxing massage of the spa jets in the jacuzzi.Details
On a recent Blackwater Nightdive i took this photo of a Juvenile Sole. Even though juvenile Soles are not uncommon in Lembeh Strait this is the first one i’ve ever seen free swimming in the the water column. This is particularly interesting as these juvenile Soles are often stated to be imitating Flatworms. Kind of obvious as they…Details
On a recent Blackwater Nightdive I was lucky enough to witness a Shrimp Larvae shedding its skin. During our Blackwater Nightdives we attract weird planktonic creatures with strong lights and get to see various juvenile fishes, squids, octopi, worms and a lot of strange crustaceans. This shrimp caught my eye and at first I thought it…Details
