Totally different diving that most ocean diving. Predominantly black sand with slow paced hunting for a variety of creatures. Good dive masters are essential. Highly recommend Black Sand Dive Retreat. Saw numerous sea horses, multiple frogfish, wonderpus octopus, mimic octopus, coconut octopus, algae octopus, many...More

Had a wonderful opportunity to dive in Lembeh Strait, with Bastianos Lembeh Dive Operators. A great view underwater with unique marine seascape, The trip would be a memorable underwater experience of North Sulawesi Trip.
