The life cycle of fishes and other marine organisms is extremely complex and one blog entry is surely not enough to elaborate this topic. But regardless of the season and dive sites, we can usually see several marine species and their eggs whilst diving in Lembeh. Normally, marine organisms produce large amounts of small eggs that hatch quickly. This produces large populations and therefore a greater chance for species survival.
In most of the cases you would probably hit the delete button straight away, when you check your pictures and see a blurry image. The main objective of photography is usually to have a clear and crisp subject in focus. However, when used right, a bit of a blur can be quite interesting and give your image a sense of motion.

Especially right now that the visibility is suitable for it and perfect subjects like Wonderpus, Mimic Octopus or big Hairy Frogfish keep turning up on a regular basis.
Our guests Johan and Bets from the Netherlands have visited Lembeh in 2010 already.

Get ready for another great Disney 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.
There are many dive destinations in the world. And all have their typical or unique characteristics … drifts, sharks, whales, blue water, pristine reefs, ice, green water, wrecks. But no matter where you dive; most divers agree that one of the main things they like in diving is that it is quiet under water. And we ...
We have a new diveboat! Mototi joins out fleet of ‘new’ Octopus Boats, Mimic and Wonderpus. This gives us without question, the nicest and newest boats in the region… and we are pretty excited about that. Mototi is our largest diveboat with some pretty cool features that we added after we received her. She had ...
I’ve been digging through my footage from just before I went on my mini holiday to South Australia for White Sharks, and I came across this nice sequence. This was one of my favourite dives of the year so far, it was a real pleasure to be in the water with so much movement. If ...
