Giant Frogfish, these

black color ones are

difficult to photograph,

they just suck up light

Four years since our last trip to the always fantastic Lembeh Strait in North Sulawesi,

Indonesia. This trip was in January, the rainy season, but had few weather related

problems. Stayed again at Kungkungan Bay Resort, our fourth time back since 1999.

Food, staff, accommodations and dive guides exemplary as always. We have

recommended KBR to other friends who are also now on return visits. The Lembeh

Strait is a must for any diver who wants to see the unusual.
