Lembeh Strait in northern Sulawesi, Indonesia is the home of 'muck diving'. The Strait has the most incredible bio-diversity and is home to many very rare underwater critters.

Most critters are small and hidden. This channel feature the high def macro video I am shooting here, while I am working as the Dive Manager at Kungkungan Bay Resort

    I like/enjoy your videos immensly! Can you discuss the technical side a little. What camera + housing do you use and how do you get the close ups: external lens or inside? I have a sony FX1 and alluminium housing LED or halogen lighting. From South Africa
