Muck. Yuck. Right? Wrong!
If you have never heard of muck diving before, it does sound completely unappealing and actually the reality of what you are doing is essentially as it sounds. Muck diving, critter diving, rubble diving – whatever you call it, is poorly named and gives a negative connotation for an environment where ones’ eyes widen again and again with each fascinating new critter.

Kungkungan Bay Resort (KBR to its friends and soon to be friends) is proud to be the resort that introduced the world to the now famous “Lembeh Strait”, acknowledged as the #1 destination in the world for Critter / Muck diving.
KBR was the original resort in the Lembeh Strait and as such pioneered the diving. We were the first International Dive Resort to open our doors in North Sulawesi and KBR was the first resort in the dive industry to use “Muck Diving” as our main diving attraction.

Wakatobi Dive Resort
It isn’t hard to understand how the dive site known as The Zoo got it’s name. Located just minutes from the dock at Wakatobi Resort, this sloping reef following a stair-stepped profile is home to a prolific and varied collection of marine life, all concentrated in a relatively small area. This is one of the region’s best macro dives, with residents that include frogfish, ghost pipefish, mantis shrimp, leaf fish, funky hairy squat lobster, different species of pygmy seahorses and more.

Jardines de la Reina is one of the world’s most beautiful natural ecosystems.
By Michale Shane – Bloomberg
We’ve just tied our skiff to the mooring line at Farallón, a dive site 50 miles off the southern coast of Cuba, when Ramón, our wiry boat captain, points behind me. “Shark,” he says, smirking.
It’s my first dive of the trip, and if the shark is there, I can’t see it. The water is too deep, and the captain’s eye is more experienced than mine.
