Alien looking creature from the Deep

 In the mid 90’s I spent a lot of time in Manado North Sulawesi Indonesia diving with Murex Dive Resort. I had the pleasure of  diving the Bunakan Island Group, Banka Island, and from the Serenade Live-aboard the Sangir Islands.  I have seen hairy crabs like this in these areas but always in a barrel sponge.   This particular crab was out in the open on some coral.

If considering Indonesia for a vacation check out Murex dive resort.  The diving is great,  The food is incredible, the resort is very comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful.

While in North Sulawesi, spend a few days to a week diving in the lembeh Strait.  This area is know for incredible macro, while the Bunaken group is great for wide angle.

If interested in guided dive trips or photography workshops check this out.
