Our Living Seas

Lembeh Straits

NORTH SULAWESI, INDONESIA

The Muck Capital of the World! Muck Diving involves diving in a muddy, silty, or “mucky” environment, whose muddy sediment, dead coral skeletons, detritus-strewn seabed, and discarded man-made garbage, harbor the most unusual and exotic underwater creatures on the planet. It amazes me that life always finds a way. Lembeh is a heaven for the macro underwater photographer and videographer. The term is “Muckro”: Diving muck environments in search of strange macro-life.
