Diving and Snorkeling in Bunaken

World-class diving close by: Bunaken National Marine Park and Manado Bay has more than 40 world-class dive sites to choose from. We are located on the east side of Bunaken island, in front of one of the best dive sites in the area. Even the further dive sites in the marine park are only about 30 minutes boat-ride away.

Relaxed wall and drift diving: Diving in Bunaken is mostly wall diving and drift diving, we can just follow the current and the boat will pick us up after the dive. Your dives will be led by experienced dive guides who are familiar with the local conditions and marine life, and more importantly, who respect them.

Long dives: We always dive well within the recreational dive limits, but still put no time limits on your dives. You can do a long safety stop looking around in the shallows, which offer an amazingly rich marine life – a perfect way to end your dive!

Full service: Let our always smiling divemasters, boat captains and crew take care of you and your dive gear. Your equipment is set up, rinsed and stored for you, so that you can fully enjoy your holiday.

High quality dive equipment: We choose to dive with Suunto Equilite 1000 BCDs, Apeks AT-20 regulators equipped with Suunto pressure and depth gauges, Aqua Lung wetsuits and Technisub and Mares masks and fins. Certified Apeks regulator and Bauer compressor technician assures well maintained dive equipment and safe, clean air fills on every dive. We follow BS5430 standard in scuba tank maintenance.

Our spacious, traditional, wooden dive boats are equipped with two engines, DAN oxygen unit, first aid kit, mobile phone and radio. The nearest operational recompression chamber is in Manado.
