Totally different diving that most ocean diving. Predominantly black sand with slow paced hunting for a variety of creatures. Good dive masters are essential. Highly recommend Black Sand Dive Retreat. Saw numerous sea horses, multiple frogfish, wonderpus octopus, mimic octopus, coconut octopus, algae octopus, many...More

My niece and I stayed at Frogger for only 3 nights and so had only time to do 8 dive. We really should have stayed another 2 mores days there is so much to explore under the straits.

It was my first experience in muck diving, at first I was a little bit surprised, but at the end I didn´t want to stop. It´s the macro paradise. Dives are so funny and not so deep.

Hi, Ella try contact Critters at lembeh they open for day dive, but what you mean by free dive? If you mean diving with no oxygen tank its prohibit in that area.
