When you dive Lembeh you will have to fly into the Manado International Airport, then it a 2hour car ride to the city of Bitung followed by a 15min boat ride to our resort.

INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS TO MANADO VIA SINGAPORE

The easiest flight option is to fly direct to Singapore – there are many direct flights from most major cities like London, Paris, Frankfurt, etc. You can then catch a Silk Air flight to Manado.

CHEAPER SILK AIR

Flying with Singapore Airlines?
Check with your travel agent, if you fly with Singapore Airlines to Singapore, sometimes they will add on the Silk Air flight to Manado for very little extra. This can be the most expensive option but is also the easiest.

BOOK DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

If you want to buy domestic flights then we can help! For booking flights online you will need a local credit card, we can buy for you and email the etickets to you. Find out more about buying tickets with us.

EARLY OR LATE TRANSFERS

Unfortunately we are unable to do late night or early morning transfers to/from our resorts. This means that you may need to stay in Manado if you have flights that arrive after 8pm or depart before 7am. In these cases, we can book a hotel and arrange all of the transport on your behalf, so that you don’t need to worry about a thing.

OWN WAY TO BITUNG/LEMBEH

You will need to head to the harbour in a village called Tandu Rusa, about 2-3 km further on from Bitung.

If you are going by public bus from Manado then you need to change at Terminal Tangkoko to get a mikrolet (blue Suzuki van) for Bitung, and once in Bitung take a ojek (motorbike) the last 2-3 km to Tandu Rusa. There are other harbours in Bitung so you will need to tell the ojek driver to take you to Tandu Rusa – they will try and take you to the Ruko harbour but we cannot pick up from this.

Once in Tandu Rusa harbour, please call us so that we can send the transport boat to collect you. If you have not already contacted us in advance, it could take up to 30 mins for the boat to reach you –  it depends on tides, whether the transport boat is being used for something else, etc.
