In this trip we will sail to dive sites in the Lembeh Strait, Biaro and Tagulandang islands, Mahengetang Island (underwater volcano), Siau and Makalehi islands, Bangka and Gangga Islands and the spectacular Bunaken national park.
The Lembeh strait is the muck diving capital of the world. Here you will encounter many species found nowhere else in the world. The region is a marco-photographers dream, and also has a variety of other dives from wrecks to walls. Speaking of walls, Bunaken was voted the best wall diving in Asia in 2004. Dramatic drop offs and an abundance of pelagic’s are characteristic of this area, as well as plenty of macro life. Bangka Island’s famous soft corals are a visual treat that will leave you surfacing with a grin ear to ear. The majestic underwater volcano Mahengetang rises from 500m to just below the surface. You also have a chance to see a lava flow into the ocean at the dive site Ruang lava flow. These volcano’s are a truly once in a lifetime experience to dive. Edges of the volcano are partially out of the water and inhabited by local villagers. You will see unique changes between the active and non active parts of the volcano and an extraordinary mix of marine life.
