Dive Manado, Bunaken and Lembeh, Dive Best of the Worlds!
Bunaken and Lembeh combine to offer world-class diving, with a fantastic variety of dive sites and an incredible marine biodiversity.
Most of the reefs of the Bunaken National Marine Park are rich and unspoilt, with pristine and abundant soft coral and fish life in huge concentration.
Diving in and around Bunaken is mostly wall diving and drift diving, but also includes several beautiful coral slopes. Dive Bunaken National Park and Manado with Eco Divers, a PADI 5 Star Dive Center: offering more than 50 different dive sites, most of them within the park. The variety of both fish and soft coral is outstanding, making this area one of the top places in the world with regards to biodiversity.
World famous for its macro life, Lembeh is most probably simply the best place in the world for macro photography! Lembeh Strait plays host to a cornucopia of weird and wonderful creatures to be found here and here alone and dive in Lembeh Strait is a unique experience with no equals in the world.
