DETAILED DECRIPTION

Head off the beaten tourist trail in Indonesia and make for the northwestern end of Sulawesi island. Here you can dive in - literally - to discover the submarine delights that populate this richly biodiverse area. Start in Lembeh, where the black volcanic sands of the Lembeh Strait are packed with mini sea critters rarely found anywhere else. After a couple of days spent “muck diving”, you’ll cross over to Manado and Siladen where the Bunaken Marine Park awaits. Explore the reefs and their colorful inhabitants by night and by day, for a fascinating insight into the underwater world here in exotic Indonesia. Stay in comfortable and conveniently-located luxury resorts, staffed by friendly, well-versed experts who will show you the ropes and ensure your diving adventure is spectacular.

DAY 2: Lembeh

Enjoy a hearty breakfast before your first day of diving. This morning you will practice getting familiar with your equipment before you begin the adventure properly with a little muck diving in the afternoon.
