Guest Gallery: Johan van Schaik

May 7, 2017 by Sonja Geier No Comment

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. Safe travels to the both of you and sampai jumpa lagi!

Trapania Mini World

On a recent Muck Dive in the north of the Lembeh Strait we had a blast: Hairy Frogfishes (3 of them), Mimic Octopus, Wonderpus, Coconut Octopus, Seahorses and many more. Plus i had to find out, that all these subjects where way too big for my 100mm lens on APS-C sensor. So i left all these critters ...

Who eats sponges, and why is that important?

February 15, 2015 by Bent Christensen No Comment

Sponges are common and important inhabitants on reefs, as well as elsewhere in oceans. They play an important role in maintaining water quality, as they filter large amounts of water, from several to many times their own body volume, every day, cleaning the water from small particles and bacteria. Sponges are primitive animals, and, as ...

Pikacu Sex!

February 11, 2015 by Serge Abourjeily No Comment

After returning back from the BOOT Show in Germany, Lembeh feels not only very tropical and warm – it also offers suprisingly cool diving. On my first days back in the water i saw all the usual suspects like Rhinopias, different Frogfish, seahorses and Octopus and many more. But also a unusually high number of Pikacu Nudibranchs (tecacera) – ...

November 24, 2014 by Serge Abourjeily No Comment

We found it. In Lembeh. Yeeeha! No joke: Last week NAD-Lembeh found the Melibe colemani in Lembeh Strait. Even though some of our guides previously said, that he had already seen it … well we did not really believe as we have not seen photos. Sorry guys, we were wrong. But now we have photos and videos to prove 😉 This ...

Even though these weeks are all about the Hairy Octopus (we are seeing them on a daily basis – even several per day – since almost two weeks), there are also many other cool critters found right now. We still go for Hairy Frogfish, all other types of Frogfishes, Blue Ringed Octopus, Wonderpus, Mimic octopus, ...

Lembeh Dive Sites: Critter Hunt

Critter Hunt is situated in the middle of the Lembeh Strait on the southern side of the Sarena Island Group. A sandy slope goes down from a reeftop shallow at around 1-2 meters to about 20 meters from where it then slowly flattens out into a spongy rubble patch. The right and left side of the slope ...

Lembeh Dive Sites: Nudi Falls

Nudi Falls is one of the most known and most popular divesites in Lembeh Strait. Maybe also because it is one of the most versatile divespots. Nudi Falls lays about in the middle of the Straits on the mainland side – just north of the village Tandu Rusa. It offers a combination of a Wall ...

Old School Wide Angle

Today I did my first dives with a new camera system.  The Sony A7r is a 36MP full frame mirrorless camera, and with the Nauticam housing and an adapter ring you can use the Nikonos series of lenses.  I started with a very old and well used 15mm lens that I would guess hasn’t been ...
