Black Sand Dive Retreat 

We are now booking this amazing resort in North Sulawesi, Lembeh Strait, Indonesia. Packages include cottage accommodations, meals, boat dives, unlimited shore dives on the house reef, free wi-fi, morning and afternoon snacks. A 7 night package with 17 dives (air fills) is $1400 USD per person double occupancy, or $1554 with nitrox fills. Contact us for availability.

Black Sand Dive Retreat is a small six-bungalow quality dive resort located on a sheltered bay in a natural setting on Lembeh Strait, Indonesia’s Exotic Critter Capital. We specialize in personalized service both above and below the water, offering an exceptional dive holiday experience for our discerning guests.

The Resort: Each of our six coconut-wood bungalows offers excellent views over Kambahu Bay and Lembeh Strait and is equipped with both a/c and a ceiling fan for your comfort, with complimentary drinking water, coffee and tea close at hand. Each unit also has a walk-in closet to keep your bags and belongings organized and out of the way as well as a walled open-air “Bali-style” garden bathroom with a hot water shower to help reheat you after long repetitive dives. The accommodation includes three meals per day in our well-appointed restaurant with excellent chefs serving a mix of International, Asian and Indonesian cuisine.

The Diving: Our strategic location means that most of Lembeh’s 40+ dive sites are within 5 minutes of the resort by speedboat. Our boats hold a maximum of 4 guests only. Our guides and GM have thousands of dives logged in the strait, which means that we know about and can find those special critters you desire. Nitrox is available and our spacious Dive Center has a dedicated camera room with individual charging stations. Right off our fine black sand beach is our spectacular House Reef, offering shallow, calm and current-free conditions on one of Lembeh’s very best sites. Open day and night, our guests commonly find marquee critters such as wonderpus, veined octopus, a number of frogfish species including the famed hairy frogfish, sea horses, devilfish, bobtail squid, bubble shells, monkeyfish, stargazers, stonefish, and numerous varieties of ghost pipefish, stingfish and waspfish, along with much more.

Turneffe Flats Resort Travel Report - Turneffe Atoll, Belize

posted by Liquid Diving Adventures    |   January 23, 2015 11:58

Turneffe Flats Resort - Belize

DIVE REPORT – 4 to 9 JANUARY 2015


Air Temperatures – Low to Upper 70s to Low 80s

Water Temperature – 78F

 


Overall Weather – At the start of the week winds came from the NNE at over 15 knots, and by mid-week they had reduced to 5 knots, only to increase again to 15 knots and swivel around to the NNW.  Skies offered alternating sun and clouds with some rain showers here and there.

 


Crew - Dive Instructor Anne-Marie was the dive guide, with Carlton (AKA Capt) as boat captain for the week.

 


Sightings – A positively monstrous size Spotted Eagle Ray came cruising by divers at close range along the Chasbow’s Corner wall on Monday.  Lighthouse Reef Atoll diving on Tuesday was spectacular, with lots of Nassau Groupers along the Half Moon Caye wall area with fat tummies for spawning.  Reef Sharks showed up as usual and showed keen interest in divers whom were taking photos of a Hawksbill Turtle munching on a sponge whom was completely unconcerned with the divers and cameras, or the Reef Sharks whizzing by.  Aquarium to Silver Cave on the western side of Long Caye was a lengthy drift dive covering both action-packed sites.  Reef Sharks, Spotted Eagle Rays, schools of Horse Eye Jack, numerous large Black Groups, and three Tarpon all made appearances.  The southeastern dives on Friday offered up a White Spotted Toadfish sighting.  Upon close inspection, there was a small Banded Coral Shrimp sitting just above the toadfish’s eye like a red and white eyebrow.  A lone large and muscular Crevalle Jack swam purposefully along the Jojos’s Split wall toward divers coming in close for inspection as it went by.  Each week brings expected sightings and surprises every time.
