For staying & diving in Manado, we can offer two PADI dive resorts
In Lembeh Straits our resort is situated on Lembeh Island, a tropical island in the middle of Lembeh Straits. Lembeh is famous for being the muck diving capital of the world. Muck diving sites are sandy slopes, often with black sand making it perfect for photographers as this reduces back-glare. With visibility of 10-15m it’s one of the few places you will see the elusive hairy frog fish, pygmy sea horses and flamboyant cuttlefish. This is why many underwater photographers love coming to dive with us in Lembeh. Lembeh is also blessed with beautiful walls, amazing corals and some fantastic ship wrecks. We can also offer great day-trips to nearby Bangka Island or Gangga Island, about an hour away, where there are some stunning soft-coral dives. Lembeh therefore has something for everyone!

Bunaken is our tropical island home situated in Bunaken Marine Park. The dramatic volcanic landscape in this area of North Sulawesi has created some of the most amazing walls for diving on the planet. It offers the best diving in Indonesia with beautiful corals, lots of fish, amazing small critters, and some larger fish such as reef shark, turtles and barracuda. Nearby there is also the mainland sand slopes of Manado, these offer the great alternative of muck diving. It’s a little like Lembeh but closer!
