Welcome to Snorkeling in Bunaken

If you want to experience snorkeling in Bunaken then you have come to the right place to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and amazing underwater life on your doorstep. We are based on Bunaken Island where the snorkeling is only 5-minutes away.

We have a few different options for snorkelers:

  • Snorkel from the beach directly in front of our resort, good for snorkelers who are comfortable in the water already. We can rent you snorkel equipment if you do not have any, and if you want you can take one of our snorkel guides with you for a small fee
  • Snorkel from our dive boat, allows our boat staff to keep a watch out for you and allows you to reach sites that are further away.
  • Rent your own boat for half-day, allows you to visit 4 or 5 different snorkeling sites around Bunaken and Siladen Island.
  • Take an early morning Dolphin Tour, a special experience around Bunaken Marine Park where you can see groups of up to 200 dolphins!  You can’t snorkel with them but you can stop off for a snorkel on the way.

Our Dolphin Tours are 6am-10.30am. The early start is because Dolphins are more active in the area early in the morning.

Please note that the Dolphins are not guaranteed but our captain and crew will do their best to find them for you. After searching for Dolphins you can enjoy snorkeling a few sites around Bunaken and Siladen Island.

I had a great time with Two Fish. I got my AOW with Colin and I have nothing but good things to say. They’re health and safety protocols above water were just as good as they are below water. Would recommend going for fun dives and it’s a great place to get a certification. We also loved the resident dogs! Hope to return again soon!
