Insider's View

Manado in North Sulawesi is a province of Sulawesi and lies south of the Philippines. It has long been, for very good reason, a scuba divers paradise! Even though it is a bit of a trek across the continent it is more than worth it! On the north-eastern coast of this tropical island of Sulawesi lies Manado, this is where you will fly into whether you stay around this area or venture off to discover more of North Sulawesi. In this part of Indonesia, you will experience an array of fantastic diving areas that will keep you asking for more after every dive!

Manado is most famously the gateway to Bunaken Nation Park where the clear waters of the Bunaken National Marine Park offer incredible steep walls teeming with thousands of different fish species, huge sponges, world-class coral gardens, and countless number of fascinating critters all of which make it an award-winning dive area.

In the northern tip of the mainland between Bunaken and Lembeh you can find a group of tropical islands with white sandy beaches and beautiful coral reefs. Bangka Island has amazing soft corals and more critters that you can imagine. Visit Bangka Strait for an encounter with whales, manta rays and other pelagic! Sail to the north of Bangka Island where the Sangihe archipelago is located and dive in search of a sunken city, through walls of fishes or an underwater volcano.
