High Quality Dedicated Dive Resort Serving Lembeh Strait




North Sulawesi Scuba Diving

North Sulawesi offers unparalleled marine biodiversity, with a wide range of dive experience options. But for divers interested in searching out encounters with bizarre and beautiful critters, Lembeh Strait, located near the port town of Bitung, hosts the best muck diving on the planet. Diving here can bring one face to face with creatures only seen in dive magazines. Divers can also take the plunge on pinnacles, walls and slopes of extravagant hard and soft coral gardens as well as a number of wrecks, some dating from WWII. Diversity is the operative word here.


Lembeh Resort

Experienced divers are always looking for something new and unusual that makes their next trip special. Lembeh Resort offers special detailed attention that only a small, top quality boutique can provide. Lembeh Resort offers comfortable and spacious accommodations for visitors in an idyllic location overlooking Lembeh Strait. For a truly exceptional experience in a relaxed and professional atmosphere, Lembeh Resort is a superb choice. This will be ISAM’s second trip to Lembeh Resort and you will want to return again and again for the personalized service and unique diving that is their specialty.


 Amazing Marine Life

Lembeh Strait has already been established as the mecca of what is known as muck or critter diving. Professional photographers and film crews are regular visitors to the strait, shooting award-winning images of the extraordinary inhabitants that mesmerize divers dive after dive. Pygmy seahorses, mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, mandarin fish, hairy frogfish, ghost pipefish, rhinopias, pegasus seamoths, banggai cardinal fish, stargazers, bobbit worms, harlequin shrimp, candy crabs, bobtail squid, devilfish, snake eels, etc. The list seems endless, with every dive an opportunity to discover a species new to science. The array of nudibranchs and crustaceans is astounding. The number of cephalopod species on display amazing. The assortment of eels and venomous fish species limitless. “Going macro” will open an entire new world to divers who follow the maxim “go slow and look down”. However, ISAM will also explore the reefs and walls outside of the straight with dives planned to Bangka and the walls outside Lembeh.
