For me Lembeh Strait is without doubt the benchmark for macro diving. Anywhere I dive looking for small stuff I inevitably end up drawing comparisons to that amazing black sand muck diving in North Sulawesi.
More often than not there is no comparison and the biggest reason for me is simply the density of marine life in Lembeh. For a cameraman it’s a dream come true as it’s relatively easy to film interactions between creatures.
Follow an animal around for long enough and something is going to happen! This video is a classic example of that theory in action. On a trip to Eco Divers in Lembeh I followed this pretty seahorse around in the shallows for a good half an hour and then WHAM! Enjoy
