NAD house reef has some interesting critters. Black sand in located at one of the more famous dive sites at lembeh so you get that as your house reef.

 

But i found that the option to do longer dives in lembeh usually means a house reef dive is quite unnecessary. I can do 3 boat dives of 70-90 min each and be quite happy with that without doing extra house reef dives cos it's that good. Also if you want to do extra dives, a night dive in lembeh is a must do. Or you could do the dusk mandarinfish dive and extend the time a bit to a short night dive.

Having been to lembeh more than anilao i would say i prefer lembeh especially since i travel out of singapore. silkair flies to manado and gives 30kg check in for divers so that's a big boost.

 

i also prefer the general topography of lembeh compared to anilao in terms of photography. I find photography easier there compared to anilao. also i feel lembeh is ahead in terms of guides as they started out in the macro game first. you generally have very good guides in lembeh while anilao can be hit and miss. any new and exciting critter also tends to be found by lembeh/indo guides first as well before those in philippines.

 

that being said, anilao is great as well as the comments above have shown with many plus points. just my personal preference.

Cool. Great vid looks like she hung around for a while. conditions looked decent too. not an easy dive this, especially for beginners.

I noticed in one part of the video the fish went almost vertical near Diverace. Do you think it was expecting to be fed ala oslob/cenderwasih style?

Just wondering if this announcement has any effect on the ML hack? Or is it a totally new format?
