    This Lumba Lumba is at Manado in Sulawesi. Going to Banda Aceh is not the right direction. Flying in to Singapore, or Jakarta or Denpasar, are the best routes to Manado at the moment. Manado is the airport for Lembeh and works pretty well for flying on to Ternate for Halmahera.

    I am beginning to understand some strange comments here over the years that didn't match up. There are two Lumba Lumbas. By the way, lumba lumba means dolphin in Indonesian - so it is quite understandable why the name has been used.

    My bad, just wanted to help...

    I knew the meaning of Lumba Lumba in Indonesian, but I didn't know there was another dive center in Manado named like the OP in Pulau Weh.

    If you have an inkling for India, I dove in Pondicherry with Temple Adventures. They had a host of European divemasters there on projects, had groups of both Indian and foreign tourists, and were very attentive of anything I needed. Feel free to PM me if you have questions.

    No ownership claim of mine. I was talking with someone on Reddit on a scuba post about sharks and we saw a terrible company that didn't care about safety or the right equipment, so we nicknamed them Dipshit Diving. I had to make a shirt of it.
