Lumba Lumba Diving Centre

PADI logo PADI 5 Star Dive Resort


Lumba Lumba Diving Centre is a PADI 5* Dive Resort run by professional Dutch-Indonesian owners, located on the precious island Pulau Weh in the extreme west of Sumatra.

Open since 1998, Lumba Lumba is a friendly and welcoming place where you will feel at home.

Pulau Weh offers pristine and uncrowded dive sites, as well as the dedication of the entire team, who bring a lot of experience to make your dives unforgettable. From spectacular full adrenaline dives to long, slow, relaxed macro dives.

On one average dive you can easily log a dozen moray eels (of five or more different species), beautiful sea fans, hunting trevallies, neon rivers of fusiliers, a couple of stingrays and maybe an octopus or two.

Depending on the location, time and current, it’s quite likely to spot tuna, barracudas, eagle rays, sharks (white tip, black tip and occasionally a grey reef or hammerhead), groupers, turtles and giant reef rays. In season we quite frequently see mantas and schools of devil rays! The most vibrantly coloured nudibranchs, frogfishes, ghost-pipe fishes, seahorses and tiny squat lobsters can be spotted when going macro.

The daily diving is very flexibly organized, offering 2 to 3 boat dives a day; each dive is a separate trip, coming back to the beach for relaxed surface intervals.

The main dive sites are just a 5 to 20 min boat ride away; the center is equipped with 3 speedboats to offer the best range of choice.  Also further dive sites like the Canyon - known as 1 of the best dive sites of Indonesia- can easily be reached! 

Dives are always done in small groups with their own professional guides, to cater for the differences in the diver's experiences and interests!

Following the local fisherman tradition, there is no diving possible from Thursday night 18:00 till Friday afternoon 14:00. So the first dive on Friday is just around 14:30 and the  second dive will be afternoon-dusk dive at 16.45.
