Do I need to be a specialist or advanced diver to dive in Lembeh?

No, You can be an Open Water diver but special emphasis must be placed on your buoyancy skills as keeping off the sand and corals are particularly important when diving in Lembeh straits.

What is the best time of year to dive at Nad Resort?

You can dive all year round in the Lembeh Straits.  March to October is the dry season with average average temperature of 30 deg C. November to February is rainy season albeit only for around 2 hours per day and temperatures 25-28 deg C.

What is Blackwater diving?

Nocturnal animals are attracted to lights which you may have noticed on night dives, so a Blackwater dive involves the dive boat dropping a line into the water with a number of light sources spaced out along its length creating attraction at various depths.  You as the diver can then select which depth to wait for the arrival of the critters.  Have your camera ready!

I sometimes struggle getting out of the water in dive gear, can I remove it in the water?

Yes, the Nad dive boats are specifically designed with the scuba diver in mind.  Combined with minimal current you can take your time to exit the water with no rush at all.

I may like to stay longer in Sulawesi but also travel, could you advise me on other dive locations?

We certainly can, get in touch to have a chat, Whats App, email or Messenger works great for us. Let us know what you would like to see and we will provide you with our experience of locations such as Bunaken which is a great combination with Lembeh.

Overview continued

“I descended on my first div in Lembeh and wondered why on earth I was here, then the dive guide pointed at a small spec, not much larger than the tip of a biro. My eyes adjusted from the usual scanning as far as I could see and a whole new world opened up; Holy cow, the floor just came alive SO MANY CRITTERS!”

Matt WatersNomadic Scuba founder

All dive guides are highly experienced at assisting guests with setting up the perfect opportunity for taking photographs of the enormous range of macro life within the dive sites.  Nad is also one of the go-to resorts for many camera workshops led by professional underwater photographers.   

Featuring 10 Beachfront Rooms and 5 Seaview Bungalows, both options not only have a bedroom but a day room too.  Beachfront rooms are perfect for those guests wishing to be closer to the restaurant and camera room whilst the Seaview Bungalows offer a more secluded location with stunning views over the Lembeh Straits.  Accommodation is based on two guests sharing either double or twin and the day room can also be used for child occupancy when requested. 

Nad resort also features a lovely restaurant that serves various Asian and western dishes.  Fish can be served when requested but you will not find it on the main buffet style menu because we love to be in the water!  The resort also has a great bar set-up with plenty of power sockets and a presentation system providing an ideal setting for post dive editing and displaying your shots whilst enjoying a beverage, and for those wishing to relax after diving, why not take a plunge in the pool or jacuzzi whilst watching the sun set over the Straits.

The diving day comprises of embarking from the floating dock which makes embarkation and disembarkation safe and easy.  With the boats leaving for two dives during the morning and more during the afternoon, Nad also accommodate night and black water dives.  With possibly the best dive guide to guest ratio you could wish for you are guaranteed to be able to take your time in photographing the multitude of macro available in the Straits.  Muck diving is an eye-opener and if you are considering it for the first time we can assure you that it is simply amazing! Critters to look for include Pigmy Seahorse, Shaun the Sheep Nudibranch, Ornate Ghost Pipefish, a multitude of Frogfish including the Hairy Frogfish, Skeleton Shrimp, Hairy Crabs and  Mimic, Wonderpus and Coconut Octopus are always a nice find. 


The Red Sea and when to dive

The beauty of the Red Sea is that it provides year-round diving and it is super cheap when compared to other destinations. Known for its beautiful reefs and clear water, the Red Sea also has other attractions such as globally recognized wrecks and numerous species of Pelagics and sharks. Water temperatures range from 25-30ºC (77-86ºF) with visibility in excess of 20m (65 Ft) it’s not hard to work out why this destination drawers such attention from recreational divers.
