What is Muck (Critter) Diving

0

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. We do it better, and have done it longer than anyone. Read more

Nights at The Zoo

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.

I take a final inventory of my gear, flash Ramón the OK sign, and roll backward into the azure Caribbean Sea. Rather than pop to the surface, as most divers do after entering the water, I stay under and spin backwards, trying to catch a glimpse of the monster below. Read more

0
It’s the first year that United Airlines will be offering “basic economy” fares — the lowest prices on a particular flight, but with notable restrictions such as: You don’t receive a seat assignment until check-in (and sitting next to your traveling companions is not guaranteed); you’re the last to board; and you’re not allowed to bring on a full-size carry-on bag (which means no use of the overhead bins).
