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.
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. The black sands of the Lembeh strait are renowned for their high concentration of exotic macro sea life, and muck diving reveals an underwater world populated with little critters including rare seahorses, spiny tiger shrimp and much more.
This morning, say goodbye to beautiful Lembeh as you are transferred by car across northern Sulawesi to Manado. Take a boat across to Siladen island and check in at Siladen Resort and Spa. Make yourself at home before heading out in the evening for a night dive around the coral reef at Bunaken Marine Park, world-renowned for its marine biodiversity.
