Yesterday we organize a trip to Nain island, the northern most island in the Bunaken National Park. Nain is about one hour an a half from Two Fish, and when looking for hammerheads you need to be in the water early morning, so we depart really early!!

Diving in NAIN has similar topography to the rest with impressive steep walls. Jalan Masuk offers the only way in for boat traffic due to the huge fringing reef that surrounds the island. There is often great viz of 35 meters and above and myriad smaller reef fish living in the coral plateaus here. Also place for strong currents.

A large very deep pinnacle starts at 40 meters with caves at 60 but this is beyond recreational limits, possible with tec diving offer by Two fish…

Due to its remoteness from the other islands there is always the prospect of an encounter with big visitors , maybe even hammerheads or pilot whales. And that is what we were looking for……no luck this time for hammerheads but they still have a good dive and did found a impressive school of jack fish. We will keep trying!!!
