Lembeh is addictive. Our return guest Andrea clearly can confirm that – because she keeps coming back here every year. This trip she could even celebrate three round numbers: 555 dives in total, 150 dives in Lembeh Strait and this morning her 100th dive with Paulus as her Dive Guide. On all her trips to ...

Psychedelic Batwing Slug

Today, I was out diving with Paulus shooting super macro critters. It was a lovely dive, with lots of shrimps and crabs to shoot.

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 ...

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.
