The trip will be geared toward best photography experiences.
If you've been on one of our trips before, you know that our guests are the best!
There is room for only 11 guests total (including Tony and I) at this tiny resort. The resort has 6 cottages, 5 boats and 6 dive guides.. lots of personal attention.
I chose this resort for 4 reasons.. the size (we can have the whole place)... the ratio of boats/divers.. the ratio of guides/divers.. plus the unlimited diving (and free Nitrox). It didn't hurt that people I've sent there came back with rave reviews and extended their stay as long as possible.
The Divers Lodge boats are comfortable. All are similar to the photo, but different sizes.
All are shaded and with a toilet and shower, rinse tanks for cameras and a work space. I understand you can even charge batteries aboard some of them.
Lunch is served on board, between dives. Soft drinks, tea, coffee, biscuits and fruit are available at any time.
This Lembeh Strait trip should be a lot of fun. I see us splitting up different ways every day depending on what people what to do. The resort is at the end of Lembeh Island, right across from Bitung. So, you can choose to go muck diving in the Strait, or go the other way (weather permitting) and do some reef diving. Also understand they have some Mandarianfish right outside the resort (and no surcharge!! for the Mandarianfish dive).
All the comfortable and very private, but not luxurious, bungalows face seaward and have great views over the southeast end of the island.. which they own, so it is pretty hills and a nice bay.
1 or 2 bungalows have views in both directions (toward N. Sulawesi and the volcanos). The staff will carry your cameras to and from the boat for you.
Tarsiers live on the property. We saw them when we were there in May! They claim to have more birds there than in Tangkoko.. but I'll never be able to verify that!
The food is good. Not fancy but very tasty and served at one long table in the dining/lounge building.
Downside? The "pool" is only the inflatable one used for the kids.
Prices for this trip are:
- 856 euro (about US$1155) per person double occupancy
- 1076 euro (US$1455) per person for a single cottage (only 1 available).
These rates are based in euros. The price in your home currency (if not euros) will vary until paid in full. 25% deposit required to confirm a booking on this trip.
Priority for this trip goes to divers scheduled on the April 30-May 12 Raja Ampat Charter, however I have some space available for others. Please email if you are interested.
