Sulawesi Utara is an Indonesian province on the north-eastern tip of the island of Sulawesi. It the west of the province of Gorontalo, the Celebes Sea to the north, the Gulf of Tomini to the south and the Moluccan Sea to the east. The province also includes the Sangihe and Talaud Islands, which are a link to the Philippine island of Mindanao.

 

Manado (also Menado) is the capital of the North Indonesian province Sulawesi Utara (North Sulawesi) on the island of Sulawesi.

 

Around North Sulawesi are our main destinations. Bangka, Lembeh and Bunaken.

 

Bangka Island is a small island off the north-eastern tip of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Bangka is known for its unspoiled beaches and diving tourism. It is administratively part of the East Likupang district in the North Minahasa regency in North Sulawesi province.

 

Lembeh Strait: The Strait of Lembeh (Lembeh Strait) is considered to be the world's best diving area for macro lovers and fascinates with an incredible variety of species. It lies between the island of the same name and the northernmost spur of Sulawesi.

 

It is about 16 kilometres long and two kilometres wide. Its banks are partly formed by white limestone formations with offshore islands. The contrast is provided by Batu Angus, a mighty lava field. The black sand in its vicinity is also evidence of volcanic activity.

 

About 25 dive sites are waiting to be explored in the Lembeh Strait. Visibility is 10 to 20 meters, the water is relatively cool for tropical conditions with 24 to 27 degrees. As the road is quite well protected, you can dive here all year round.

 

Underwater you will experience a landscape of black volcanic sand, slopes and corals, which is home to many, sometimes bizarre and rare species.

 

Some of the inhabitants of Lembeh Strait are small and very cleverly camouflaged - macro photographers will have their bright joy.

 

Bunaken Island The diving area around Bunaken is an underwater national park of more than 75,000 hectares. 

 

Most of the dive sites are steep walls with a species-rich vegetation. A paradise for both macro and wide angle photography.

 

An underwater visibility of 20 to 30 meters and an exuberant abundance of species make the national park a unique diving region. Among the special features of the area are the 25 to 50 meter high coral walls.

 

70 percent of all fish species of the West Indian Pacific are found here: Sting mackerels, blue striped snapper, flag perch.
