Bunaken and North Sulawesi - Diving & Snorkeling with Eco Divers
Manado is an exotic year-round dive holiday destination and an area of outstanding natural beauty. The lush coconut palms, sandy beaches and pristine reefs of the Bunaken National Park are set against a magnificent backdrop of volcanoes and teeming rainforests. North Sulawesi offers so many diving delights, including the famous and intriguing Lembeh Strait, home to scores of rare camouflaged critters. Said to be the epicentre for marine life, there are more species to be found here than anywhere else on the planet, with new discoveries being made every day.
Eco Divers, based at Kima Bajo Resort & Spa, is a PADI 5 Star Center. Managers Luca Vaime (Italian) & Miho Takeda (Japanese) have already managed an upscale dive operation in North Sulawesi since 2005, so they know every bit of the Bunaken National Park. The purpose built boats are built in a traditional design, powered by energy efficient double outboard engines and have comfort features including sundeck, camera rinse tanks, WC and shaded salon. They take divers to over 30 dive sites with speed and comfort, each carrying a maximum of just 8 guest divers. Snorkellers and non-divers are also welcome to join the trips. Dive groups are kept very small - just 4 guests to each guide. At the jetty a camera storage facility with individual lockers is available for guests’ use.
Our daily dive program to Bunaken National Park offers a two-tank morning trip and one-tank afternoon trip. The morning trip departs at 8.15am and the boats return at around 1pm, so guests can enjoy lunch at Kima Bajo Resort. The afternoon trip departs at 3pm and returns by around 4.30-5.00pm. Night dives, special trips to Lembeh Strait and PADI dive courses can be arranged on request.
