Lembeh Macro Madness II, April 16-27 2012

Backscatter once again will return to the Lembeh Resort in Indonesia for spectacular encounters with some of the strangest critters on the planet. Please be sure to check out Backscatter’s trip report from this year’s expedition for a detailed look at what you can expect from this awesome destination.

Lembeh Strait is a name synonymous with “critter” or “muck” diving. Consistently rated among the top dive locations in the world, Lembeh is home to many unique and rare animals. It’s not only a macro paradise; there are some equally good wide angle sites nearby. We are thrilled to be reuniting with our good friends and dive guides Hergen and Kerri who will be sure to show us the best that Lembeh has to offer. For a taste of the crazy critters that inhabit the area, take a look at the slide show from the 2011 Lembeh expedition below.

Lembeh Resort, a spectacular boutique style resort, is situated on Lembeh Island and perched above the beautiful Strait. The property is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and blends perfectly into the landscape. All guest cottages boast spacious verandahs for perfect views of glorious North Sulawesi sunsets and an intimate connection with nature. Modern amenities including air-conditioning, mini bar, wifi internet and massage ensure your comfort and relaxation.
