Dive Team: New Guides

To be able to offer our 2:1 Ratio (2 Guests with one Diveguide) at the quality level our guests are used to we not only had to find some new guides – we had to find some really good ones. So let us introduce the latest three additions to our Dive Team (from left to right): Jony, Tamrin ...

A crab up your butt!

All divers interested in critters sooner or later will get interested in crustaceans. Some of the crustaceans are considered “must see” items, such as harlequin shrimp, tiger shrimp, several of the extremely small shrimp recently found here in Lembeh, emperor shrimp and a host of other shrimp. The keyword here is shrimp.  Crabs on the ...

Cymothoa exigua, Bent’s favourite Critter

So, after the English Football team got there ass (arse) whooped by Sweden last night I thought to myself ‘what would Bent do?’ The answer was not hard to find, as our favourite Swede/Dane hybrid loves parasites and all things small and disgusting. I headed out on a dive with Stenly, Joni, Johan, Indra, Abner ...

Beautiful Tiger Cowrie found

On a recent dive our Dive Guide Paulus found this beautiful Tiger Cowrie (Crenavolva tigris) on a red seafan, which it feeds on. This Yellow-Black patterned Cowrie is a real beauty and well deserves the name tiger cowrie, which is also commonly used for the much bigger but also much less attractive and less rare Cypraea ...

Whaleshark found in Lembeh!

Every day of diving in Lembeh Strait is special – but some days are just more outstanding than others. Today was one of those days. It all started with very heavy tankbanging, when our Dive Guides Stenly (left) and Marnes (right) spotted a Whaleshark in between Aer Bajo 2 and Aer Bajo 3. The Whaleskark ...

Nice Shrimp out of a plastic tarp

On a recent dive trip to Teluk Kembahu (TK) our Guide Indra showed me this weird shrimp. He was actually trying to find a Bumblebee Shrimp by looking under a pile of old ropes, that were encrusted with a big plastic tarp. But instead he found a big colony of various shrimps including Brittle Star ...

Tiny Baby Octopus

On yesterday’s second morning dive our guide Stenly found (amongst other things) this little baby Octopus for his three Japanese guests. The little fellow had the size of a fingernail or a small coin and was still transparent … you could even see his internal organs working. Its colouration was a little bit like a ...

Bubble Shell out at daytime

Some Critters can be seen at daytime but others only at night – like for example the Bubble Shells: They are burried in the Sand during the day and come out at night. But this Wavy Lined Bubble Shell (Micromelo undata) must have been doing overtimes … our guide Paulus found it on yesterdays’s morning ...
