Travel to Sulawesi

Celebes, the 'Spice Island' is an oddly shaped island in the north of Indonesia, home to world-famous dive destinations such as Wakatobi, Lembeh Strait, Bunaken and Bangka near Manado, places high on the wishlist of divers everywhere.

In North Sulawesi lies in the very epicentre of the world's marine biodiversity in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. It offers more than 100 different dive sites, all rich with tropical marine life, with diving all year round.

There are three dive areas to choose from. The first area is the clear waters of the Bunaken National Marine Park which was voted the global winner of British Airways Tourism for Tomorrow Award in 2003. The amazing walls of the park teams with thousands of different fish species, with huge sponges and beautiful hard corals, and countless number of fascinating critters.

The second area on the other side of the mainland is Lembeh Strait, and it is known as the world's best ‘muck-diving'. These waters are full of extraordinary marine critters, many of which are the masters of camouflage.

In the northern tip of the mainland between Bunaken and Lembeh you can find a group of tropical islands with white sandy beaches and beautiful coral reefs. This is the third diving area of Bangka Island with amazing soft corals and even more critters.

The Sulawesi north of the island reaches an approximate depth of 6,200 m. This is why the surrounding waters of the island offer the chance to dive with big pelagics as well as some of the finest and most colourful coral scenes on earth.

In the south we find the popular Wakatobi, a collection of small islands in the Banda Sea. With very little in the way of infrastructure in this remote part of the world, you'll enjoy the peace and solitude that this paradise archipelago provides. Jacques Cousteau was sufficiently moved to claim this area as possibly the finest dive site in the world.

An hour’s flight from Manado or Makassar is Gorontalo, a new Sulawesi dive destination. Scuba divers have access to a variety of dive types in a single destination. Wall, multiple pinnacle, cavern, submerged point, muck and wreck diving are available. Only in Gorontalo can divers Salvador Dali sponges.
