Vadly 'Opo.S' Makasighe
Opo Sedang (it means middle Opo, since we have 3 Opo’s in our extended work-family) was born in 1982 in Bitung, North Sulawesi. Opo is married with 2 children. (Sorry, ladies!)
He began work at Critters@Lembeh many years ago as a boat captain. He then started snorkeling and diving, earning his Open Water certification in 2004. Opo is now a certified Divemaster with many thousands of dives to his credit.
Opo’s favourite critter is the blue-ring octopus because of its spectacular colors and deadly nature. His favourite dive site is Hairball because of its many awesome critters.
He’s a man of many talents and when not guiding our guests, is a keen and accomplished underwater photographer as well as an artist – you can see one of his drawings on the back of our T-shirts in the gift shop and some of his polymer clay models are in our Camera Center for practicing your shots on!
On his days off, Opo likes to eat, sleep, and hang out with friends.
