You will find sheer drops to hundreds of meters at the amazing walls of Bunaken National Park and Bangka islands. Furthermore, there are many undiscovered sites for those looking for more challenging technical and exploratory diving. The resort also offers technical dive equipment and training, with dive crew and boats experienced with technical divers and their equipment.
The walls at the Bunaken National Park drop to over 800 meters, and are largely unexplored, with only rumours of big fish living beyond the recreational diving limits. The Bangka island walls drop to over 70 meters, and have deep reefs that go all the way down to the sandy bottom. The wrecks in the Lembeh Straits are also accessible a few hours’ drive away. With Manado’s traditionally calm waters and amazing visibility, this is the perfect location to experience technical diving at its best.

  • Wori Bay

    5-minute boat ride.
    There are not a lot of hard and soft corals at this site, but its black sandy slope and relatively shallow depth of 10 to 15 meters makes this a great muck location, with ghost pipefish, ribbon eels, batfish, juvenile sweetlips, and many different species of gobies.

  • Odyssea Point 1 & 2

    10-minute boat ride.
    A shallow site with a maximum depth of 15 meters, this is a sandy slope with some coral outcroppings. Frequented by frogfish, seahorses, crocodile fish, nudibranchs, a variety of crabs and shrimp, it has become a guest favourite. It’s also a popular as a night dive site.

  • Odyssea Point 1 & 2

    10-minute boat ride.
    A shallow site with a maximum depth of 15 meters, this is a sandy slope with some coral outcroppings. Frequented by frogfish, seahorses, crocodile fish, nudibranchs, a variety of crabs and shrimp, it has become a guest favourite. It’s also a popular as a night dive site.

  • Tiwoho

    10-minute boat ride. 
    This is a sandy slope, dotted with coral heads where a wealth of small critters live. Ghost pipefish, frogfish, squat lobsters, anemone fish, ribbon eels, and several species of nudibranchs are the regular fare. With visibility ranging from 10 to 30 meters, this is a very nice site, suitable for all levels of divers, as well as snorkelers.

  • Gabet

    10-minute boat ride.
    A shallow site with a maximum depth of 15 meters, this is a sandy slope with some very nice coral heads. A great muck site with cuttlefish, pink leaf scorpionfish, giant mantis shrimp, Spanish dancers, harlequin shrimp, boxer crabs, and even Pontohi pygmy seahorses! A favourite location for night dives.

  • Molas Shipwreck

    30-minute boat ride.
    As no one is exactly sure of the name and origin of the ship, the site is named after the local village. Sunk in 1942, it is presumed to be a Dutch cargo ship. This site is for advanced divers due its depth. Lying on its side, the bow starts at 24 meters, and the propellers are at 42 meters. Although not safe for penetration, the marine life around the wreck makes this an entertaining dive, with nice soft corals, nudibranchs, pufferfish, white-tip reef sharks and Napoleon wrasses in attendance.

  • Popoh

    90-minute boat ride.
    (Minimum of 4 people required, IDR190,000 surcharge per person.)
    Originally discovered by Cocotinos Director Martinus Wawanda, this site has a black sandy slope with a maximum depth of 30 meters. Hailed as being “better than Lembeh”, you can see the same critters here within the first 5 minutes of your bottom time! Thorny seahorses, Rhinopias, frogfish, mimic octopus, wonderpus, cuttlefish, sea moths, pygmy seahorses, and even a dugong in the sea grass on a full moon! These are just a few of the treats one can expect to see.

  • Lekuan 1, 2 & 3

    20-minute boat ride. 
    On the southeast side of Bunaken Island, the walls at Lekuan are definite favourites amongst the Cocotinos dive staff. With visibility often extending up to 40 meters, sightings of the larger species such at sharks, turtles, and schools of trevally and Napoleon wrasses are very common. Smaller fish such as butterflyfish, triggerfish, scorpionfish and lionfish are also abundant. And the small stuff isn’t lacking either, with many species of nudibranchs making their home here.

  • Sachiko’s Point

    20-minute boat ride.
    Named after a Japanese tour operator, this is a deep, vertical wall on the northeast side of Bunaken, with visibility frequently in the 30 to 40-meter range. The slight current here means larger pelagics such as sharks, turtles, barracuda and Napoleon wrasses frequent the area. Other critters typically found here include moray eels, sea snakes, leaf scorpionfish, nudibranchs, crabs and shrimp.

  • Bunaken Timur 1 & 2

    25-minute boat ride.
    On the east (timur) side of Bunaken. After an initial sandy slope for 5 to 10 meters, this site becomes a vertical wall with beautiful hard and soft corals. A great variety of sea life, both large and small, gather here, including eagle rays, turtles, Napoleon wrasses, harlequin shrimp and nudibranchs. This is also a nice site for snorkeling.

  • Fukui Point

    40-minute boat ride.
    On the southwest side of Bunaken. Named after a Japanses dive instructor who first described the site in the 1980’s, this site has many of the same critters found on other sites around Bunaken such as barracuda, batfish and trevally, yet it has no wall. It’s a slope with a white sandy bottom, with many hard corals and large sponges. One of its most noticeable and distinguishing features are the 5 giant clams, a nice treat for snorkelers. The site is also home to Pontohi pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, crabs, and shrimp. It’s a good place for dive training due to its shallow maximum depth (18 meters) and little to no current.

  • Ron’s Point

    40-minute boat ride. 
    At the southwest corner of Bunaken, this is an advanced dive location due to its depth and strong currents, which of course means larger pelagics are sighted here. Schools of black-tip reef sharks, barracuda, tuna and jacks frequent the area. The coral rubble is home to eels, ghost pipefish, and anemones. As a special treat, there’s a family of Pontohi pygmy seahorses living in a rock towards the end of the dive – a really nice way of doing your safety stop!

  • Raymond’s Point

    40-minute boat ride. 
    On the western corner of Bunaken Island, this is a deep wall with lots of soft and hard corals and an amazing array of critters – white and black-tip reef sharks, turtles, clown triggerfish, eagle rays, stingrays, ribbon eels, and lobster. There’s also a small cave. The top of the reef is at 5 meters, so the show continues all the way through  to your surface stop.

  • Siladen Island

    20-minute boat ride. 
    A small island surrounded by a beautiful white sandy beach, Siladen has 2 amazing sites. Siladen 1, on the south side of the island, is a wall dive with a maximum depth of 30 meters. The top of the reef is a beautiful hard coral garden, with stunning soft corals all along the wall. Boxer crabs and pygmy seahorses are among the many different critters making their home here. This is also a very nice site for snorkeling. Siladen 2, on the northeast side, is a white sandy slope with big boulders, soft corals, and table corals. Larger pelagics frequent the area, including sharks, Napoleon wrasses and bumphead parrotfish. Due to its strong current, this is a site for advanced divers only.

  • Bualo

    50-minute boat ride. 
    Located on the south side of Manado Tua, this is a vertical wall with a 30-meter maximum depth. Visibility ranges from 20 to 30 meters. The gentle current here makes this a nice dive for beginners. Large sponges and soft corals decorate the wall, with banded sea snakes, scorpionfish, lionfish, and anemonefish all part of the scenery. There are also occasional sightings of eagle rays.

  • Tanjung Kopi

    50-minute boat ride. 
    On the north side of Manado Tua, this site gets its name from the coffee (kopi) tree on the corner (tanjung) of the island. This site combines both a slope and wall, with a maximum depth of 35 meters, and visibility ranging up to 35 meters as well! Due to its very strong currents, this is an ‘experts only’ site. With tuna, barracuda, large schools of trevally, batfish and fusiliers, Napoleon wrasses, triggerfish, bumphead parrotfish, octopuses, and sea snakes all part of the regular backdrop. Even an occasional hammerhead has been spotted here!

  • Batu Kapa

    90-minute boat ride.
    Strong currents and the maximum depth of 75 meters makes this another ‘experts only’ dive. Its main attraction is a swim-through cave-like structure that you enter at 40 meters, often to find a sleeping white-tip reef shark, and then exit at 72 meters. Outside, divers are occasionally rewarded with a few potato cod, and perhaps even a hammerhead.
