2 DIVERS, 1 GUIDE
Our experienced, English speaking dive guides will give you all the time you want, to discover and enjoy the famous “Critter Capitol of the World” at your own pace. They are happy to show you everything on your wish-list: mimic octopus, hairy frogfish, pigmy seahorses, specific nudibranches, harlequin shrimps, ghost pipefish, boxer crabs, flamboyant cuttlefish or others? They will find them if they are around. Every guide has made at least 1200 dives in Lembeh Strait.
If you want to get the most out of your diving holiday opt for a private boat with a private guide. You can plan your diving schedule as you wish, and discuss it with our on-site dive supervisor. Have a look at our very affordable rates here.
SAFE AND SOUND
Our boats are designed by divers and built for diving. They guarantee you comfortable and safe day-trips to all dive sites within the Strait of Lembeh and, season and weather depending, to the Oceanside of Lembeh Island and to Bangka Island. We never take more than 6 divers/snorkelers on our most spacious boats and less on our other boats. We do not have a maximum dive time limit. As long it is safe and there are no deco-stops needed.
Although we started diving in Lembeh Strait back in 2002, we still find new exciting sites. In the last 2 years we even discovered several top dive sites in the direct vicinity of the resort. Our “Mandarin House Reef” is also still one of the “must visit” places of the Strait. An unguided dive from our beach costs only IDR 100.000, -/EUR* 6/USD* 7,40 per dive.
LAND TRIPS IN PARADISE
We don’t just offer excellent diving at Divers Lodge Lembeh. If you stay with us, you will enjoy the most beautiful part of Lembeh Island. The resort is a true butterfly paradise and over the years more and more birds made it their home. Divers Lodge Lembeh is surrounded by 25 hectares of tropical nature reserve. Tarsier Spectrum (very small primates), Civets and Monitor lizards are permanent residents here. We are also experts in organizing day trips to the most beautiful parts of North Sulawesi, including Tangkoko National Park and the Minahassa Highlands.

The kitchen of Divers Lodge Lembeh is keeping up her reputation of freshly prepared, tasty and healthy meals. The Indonesian dishes really taste Indonesian, without being too spicy. Instead of the traditional frying of the vegetables we also serve them steamed. There is extra home-made sambal for the guests who like it “very hot”. Pastas, potatoes and home-made bread are served to offer an alternative for rice and noodles. We do not use MSG and palm oil in our kitchen and all food is Halal. Of course we also cater for vegetarians and guests with other special dietary requirements. Smoking is not allowed in the restaurant and the lounge but one can smoke at the attached open air terrace. Have a look at our cuisine page to get a taste of our dishes.
