Lembeh Diving


Lembeh Strait, situated near Lembeh Island in North Sulawesi, stands among the world’s renowned diving destinations and is an absolute must for those exploring Indonesia. It has evolved into a prime spot for underwater photographers due to the wealth of unique critters dwelling here. Divers flock to Lembeh in search of rare creatures like the elusive hairy octopus, pygmy seahorses, and the mimic octopus, rarely seen elsewhere.

This diving haven caters to divers of all skill levels, offering mild currents, low surge, and shallow dive sites. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned photographer, the dive conditions in the Lembeh Strait are mostly pleasant, offering numerous opportunities to spot nudibranchs and crabs in their natural habitat. Water temperatures vary throughout the year, reaching around 28-29 degrees Celsius (82-84 Fahrenheit) from October to March and dropping to 25-26 degrees Celsius (79-81 Fahrenheit) in July and August. We suggest a 5mm wetsuit, especially for multiple dives per day, although we provide rentals for added layers if needed.

Regarding visibility in the Lembeh Strait, it averages around 10 meters. However, for muck diving, visibility is less crucial compared to reef diving.



Thanks to our strategic location near Lembeh Strait and efficient boats, the majority of dive sites are just a stone’s throw away. This convenience allows you to enjoy your surface intervals, unwinding by the pool back at Lembeh Resort.



Ample space equipped with spacious workstations, universal sockets, air conditioning and other necessary provisions guarantee the meticulous care and maintenance of your equipment.
