Muck Diving

(activity)
diving sites with sand or silty bottom in search of strange looking tiny creatures, or muck critters, found there.


Muck diving is at its best in Lembeh, Indonesia where the sheer abundance of biodiversity and unique critters is greater than it is anywhere else; every dive reveals countless “special finds!” The particular excitement in muck diving lies in finding rare, camouflaged, and breathtakingly beautiful critters in the strangest of places.
