The Best of Both Worlds: Bunaken to Lembeh, May 20 - June 1st, 2013
Coral and Fish-Rich Reefs to the Best Macro Diving in the World!


Travel with Optical Ocean Sales on an all-inclusive photo expedition to dive the heart of the “Coral Triangle” of North Sulawesi, which contains more marine species than any other area on the planet!

Begin with 4 days of 3-4* tank dives photographing the incredible reefs and vistas of Bunaken National Park. This region is home to over 390 species of coral and a myriad of tropical fish. Its beautiful walls are teaming with life! Bunaken is simply one of the best places to hone your wide-angle photography skills.

Then on to what is considered by many the “greatest macro diving in the world!” Lembeh Straits. Enjoy at least 3 dives a day with the small and bizarre creatures that make Lembeh’s black sands their home. Residents include; pygmy seahorses, flamboyant cuttlefish, psychedelic mandarin fish, walking sharks, plus just about every type of frogfish, octopus, squid and nudibranch imaginable! The number of incredible creatures to photograph can be overwhelming.

There will be daily seminars ranging from “Buoyancy for Photogs” to “Shooting Super Macro.” Even a little friendly competition thrown in. Experiment with backlighting, snoots and “close focus, wide angle.” In the evenings there will be a chance to review the day’s photos with the goal of everyone taking their skills to the next level. Take part in the daily activities as much or little as you like.
