The beautiful steep coral reefs of Bunaken National Marine Park in North Sulawesi house an aquatic ecosystem which attracts divers of all levels.
The area offers incredibly high levels of marine biodiversity, warm waters, clear visibility and its pristine walls covered in soft corals and sponges. These in turn are home to barracuda, napoleon wrasse, moray eels and turtles.
Established in 1991, there are five islands that make up the park, Siladen, Montehage, Nain and Bunaken each with their own characteristics and enchanting dive sites. The water here is deep, visibility averages 35 metres and water temperature is 27-29C year round.
Most of the diving is drifting along the colurful walls with their fans, sponges, overhangs and caves. You will no doubt explore Lekuan 1, 2 and 3 dive sites. Keep an eye out for cleaner shrimp, sharks, schooling fusiliers and barracuda, bumphead parrot fish and plenty more, especially at Mike's Point, famous amongst underwater photographers.
A combination of Bunaken and Lembeh Strait makes for a unique diving holiday.
