LEMBEH STRAIT,
CAPITAL OF MUCK DIVING

Somewhere between mud, dirt and silt is “muck” and for most people it means something needs to be cleaned.

For us, “muck” means something else. It is the chance to show you some of nature's most incredibly adapted creatures.

Hidden in this muck are fish and animals so unusual, beautiful and diverse that divers travel from all over the world to see and photograph them. 

The Lembeh Strait is considered by many as the “Mecca of Muck Diving” and is high, if not at the top, of the bucket list of every macro photographer. It became famous more than 15 years ago when pictures of unseen and crazy critters began to appear on the front pages of diving magazines. The “Muck Diving” fever was born and since then thousands of tourists each year make the trip to dive some of the dirtiest and muckiest sites on the planet. 
The possibility to dive all year round makes Lembeh a pretty unique destination! The unique geography of the straight means that our favourite dive sites are protected by both the mainland and Lembeh Island. We have both the equipment and the expertise to provide guests with safe and enjoyable dive experiences any time of the year.

A PHOTOGRAPHER’S HEAVEN – The fact that the dives are long, shallow, on gently sloping bottoms make for fantastic conditions to take pictures underwater. Should a subject be in a poor position for a shot, just know that a better one is just waiting around the corner.

PADI OPEN WATER DIVER

Requirements:
Minimum age: 10 years old.
The course usually takes 3 1/2 days.
Divers aged 10 to 14 will be certified as PADI Junior Open Water.
10 and 11 year old children are limited to 12 meters maximum.
This is the most common certification in the PADI system and after completing the course you will be certified to dive to a depth of 18 meters.

The course on land consists of theory, knowledge reviews, videos, quizzes and final exam.All materials including the book and all rental equipment are included in the price.

Training in the water starts in the shallow water of our lagoon. We practice all the skills in this quiet water. Students get a chance to get used to the equipment and practice skills in this sheltered, shallow area, already with the chance to meet some interesting underwater creatures! Then there are 4 open water dives over two days. On each dive we practice different skills we learned in the lagoon. For a fair portion of the dive, we are looking at fish and enjoying the reef. Students don’t need to be strong swimmers, but must be able to swim 200 meters and float for 10 minutes. Students must be able to answer “no” to all the questions on the PADI medical questionnaire or get signed off by a doctor.

Example schedule:
Day 1 Morning: Theory, Knowledge Reviews and Quizzes for Chapters 1 to 3
Day 1 Afternoon: Videos and Swim test
Day 2 Morning: Lagoon
Day 2 Afternoon: Theory, Videos, Knowledge Reviews and Quizzes for Chapters 4 and 5
Day 3 Morning: Dives 1 and 2
Day 3 Afternoon:  Any remaining theory or videos and Exam
Day 4 Morning:  Divers 3 and 4

ADVANCED OPEN WATER DIVER

Requirements:
Students must already be certified as PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver or an equivalent certification from another training agency. If you have done your first course with another organization like SSI, CMAS, etc. you can still do the Advanced Course. Please send us a copy of your license and make sure you bring it with you when you come to Froggies.

The course normally takes two days with 3 dives on one day and 2 on another.

Minimum age 10 years old. If you have not been diving for more than 6 months and have less than 10 dives we may ask you to do a Scuba Review prior to starting the Advanced Open Water course. If you have not been diving for more than 1 year and have less than 20 dives we will very likely ask to do a Scuba Review first. The cost of the scuba review is not included in the price of the Advanced Open Water.

The course consists of 5 “Adventure Dives”. Basically each “Adventure Dive” is an introduction to a different type of diving.
Students can do the Adventure Dives individually if they want.

The Deep Adventure dive and the Navigation dive are required and we usually suggest do a Night dive as Bunaken is probably one of the best place on Earth to try it. The other two are up the student and the conditions on Bunaken.

On the Deep Adventure dive we go down to 30 meters and test for narcosis, learn about dive planning, and basic decompression theory. After this dive, students are certified to go as deep as 30 meters. Many of the dive sites on Bunaken have interesting animals and life beneath 18 meters and this will allow students go to the deeper areas of dive sites.

The Navigation dive is where students learn the basics of using a compass and navigating a dive site underwater.

The Night Dive is a chance to see the different fish and other animals that come out after dark. All students are provided with an underwater light for this dive.
