PADI 5* Dive Resort

Pulau Weh, Sumatra

We are a professional Dutch-Indonesian dive operation and a PADI 5* Dive Resort at the northwestern tip of Indonesia, Sumatra.

Open since 1998, Lumba Lumba Diving Centre has become a meeting point on Gapang Beach, a hub of activity from where the diving starts and a friendly ‘n welcoming place where you can feel at home.

Still being an insiders secret and an off the beaten track location, Pulau Weh offers unspoiled and uncrowded divesites. Add our team’s dedication, experience and love for the ocean and you’ll get unforgettable dives. From spectacular full-adrenaline dives to long, slow relaxed macro dives.

We dive all year round. The landscapes on all sites are magnificent and diverse. The average visibility is 20+ meters, and often more than 30 meters, especially when diving deep. The water temperature is usually 28-29 degrees Celsius, with sometimes colder upwellings which bring extremely clear visibility of over 40 meters from the dephts of the open ocean around Weh.

Lumba Lumba Diving Centre offers the full range of PADI 5* courses, from your very first dive up to your Divemaster Training. We are the premier and only PADI 5 Star Dive Resort on Sumatra. Our instructors are experienced and know the waters around Pulau Weh very well. Lumba Lumba’s international team offers courses in English and multiple other languages. We dive in small groups based on experience and ability level so that everyone gets the attention they deserve.

Life on Gapang Beach

Pulau Weh is a beautiful island on the most North-Western tip of Indonesia. It is an off the beaten track location and not overrun from tourists. We are located at Gapang Beach, which is a picturesque beach, surrounded by white sand and large overhanging trees; the ‘Gapang’ trees.

The small community of Gapang consists of a few Indonesian families with their restaurants and a souvenir shop right on the beach path. To get an idea how to get here, check flight and ferry schedules and have a look at our travel recommendation.

Our accommodation is purposely built for our divers (and non-diving roommates of course). The rooms are quite popular, so reservations are recommended.

With a great house reef in front of the diveshop and a couple of resident turtles living in the bay, it’s certainly a perfect place for snorkeling and long relaxed shore dives.
