Clearly, a well preserved Secret, Bunaken has had a steady stream of loyalists return over the years and keep as mum about it as they could. As they say, you can’t keep a good thing down and Absolute SCUBA shared this little secret with Absoluters on its first few trips here.
LUSH & INCREDIBLY beautiful are two words that will come straight to most minds. Bunaken Island and its reefs have a history of being fiercely guarded by its local dive professionals and operating centres. This is the place for serious divers – those who wake up and sleep to the diving rhythms of the island. Early morning to late night dives; you can notch up to 5 dives a day here if you’re up for it. And still crave to dive more the next day.
Sheer walls and drop offs, incredibly diverse soft & hard coral everywhere, 40 meter visibility, 75 minute dives guided on a 1 buddy pair per dive leader ratio – unbelievable ? It is all true. And when you finally spot your first MANDARIN FISH, it is truly a Bunaken moment!
Absolute SCUBA has steady departures to this fabled and highly protected Marine National Park; touted as a must dive for every avid diver, Dive this Jewel of the Celebes Sea.
What #Absoluter’s Say
Diving was great. Thanks to Jayesh. he was awesome as an instructor for my first dive. He is passionate about helping people learn to dive, makes the experience absolutely awesome!
Excellent. Must try. Ideal for first time experience and insight. Courteous and helpful crew. one of a kind I pine. Helps one to know what it is all about and to fight the fear and anxiety of going deep underwater
