Nomad Divers, Bangka - Indonesia Dive Resorts - Dive Discovery Indonesia

We are a small friendly dive resort located on Bangka Island, North Sulawesi.

From Manado airport we provide an air conditioned transfer with cold mineral water for an hour north where we meet our boat for a forty minute boat ride to Nomad Divers. Clients will be met on the beach with welcome drinks and fresh fruit.

We have four wooden cottages built in the local Minahasan style which all have double beds, ensuite bathrooms with Western style toilet and balcony. Two cottages have two rooms which can fit one more single bed.

On the beach is our restaurant and bar, dive centre and you will also find hammocks and wooden benches for relaxing after a dive. The restaurant serves three meals per day prepared by our local chef, this ranges from pork satay to chicken curry to fish sambal or BBQ chicken with chips! Meals, drinking water, tea and coffee are all included in the nightly rate.

The diving on Bangka is incredible with a wide variety of dive sites; in our bay we spot dolphins most mornings and also have a resident dugong. You can spot frogfish, pygmy seahorses, ornate ghost pipefish, scorpionfish, eagle rays, many types of crab and shrimp and so much more. There are plenty of underwater pinnacles, caverns and also sandy bottoms ideal for training dives. We offer PADI courses up to Divemaster.
