North Sulawesi, Indonesia
The best diving is between April and October, but the weather is warm and nice year round. You can expect more rain during our winter months. The diving is world-class, with more species then the Great Barrier Reef. See everything from sea turtles and stingrays to pigmy seahorses.
Indonesia is a fantastic area that has a lot to offer our travelers. We have chosen to work with North Sulawesi because of its incredible natural beauty and unbeatable diving.
Manado makes up one of the 32 provinces of Indonesia and lies at the heart of this stretched out island nation. Manado is a tropical paradise, filled with verdant jungle, rapid rivers and of course the mind blowing marine life and lush corals that makes the region so unmissable for divers.
The city of Bitung is bedded alongside the Lembeh Straits. Surrounded by jungle and overlooked by a volcano, the city is a bustling port town.
North Sulawesi is renowned as being the number one destination for marine bio diversity on the planet. Here you’ll find a higher concentration of marine life than on the Great Barrier Reef, the Hawaiian Islands or the Caribbean. The variation of fish and marine life is enormous and you have a great chance of seeing sea turtles, large Napolean wrasse, stingrays and sharks.
Most of the reefs of the Bunaken National Marine Park are rich and unspoilt, with pristine and abundant soft coral and fish life in huge concentration. The night diving in the park is spectacular, rare creatures are round every corner and there´s even a WWII wreck in day range.
Lembeh Straits offers divers the chance to see the most odd looking creatures on the planet. The saying is: "when the creator got done creating the earth, all of the mistakes got dumped into Lembeh Straits." Electric clams, hairy frog fish and flamboyant cuttlefish are among the few odd critters that you can see here.
