Based at Dive into Lembeh Resort in North Sulawesi for six nights, the focus here is on muck diving and for the photographers, macro photography, with subjects including seahorse, nudibranch, frogfish, mandarinfish, octopus to name but a few.

We then move from Lembeh Strait to the lesser-known but equally impressive Bangka Archipelago. Our transfer here is by boat, where we enjoy visits to off-the-beaten-track dive sites along the way for two dives. We enjoy the alluring underwater world of Bangka for seven nights, staying at the Coral Eye Resort with its strong ethos for marine research. Diving in Bangka offers a totally different perspective to Lembeh, with a mixture of hard and soft corals, walls and pinnacles hiding all manner of critters from seahorse to frogfish. Pelagic species are commonplace, with both white and black-tip reef sharks along with dugongs possible.
