Explore diving around the Two Fish Divers Bunaken

What to see

If it’s weird, you are likely to find it in the Lembeh Straits. Top critters on every diver and photographers wish list include the mimic octopus, Wonderpus, Rhinopias, flamboyant cuttlefish, Ambon scorpionfish, harlequin shrimp, and the very entertaining hairy frogfish. If lucky, you might also come across the delicate Lembeh Sea Dragon. Also, be boggled by the wide array of nudibranch and during night dives, look out for stargazers in the sand and Spanish dancers passing by in the darkness.

At areas like Bunaken and the nearby Bangka, dolphins or pilot whales can sometimes be seen from the surface. Underwater, expect green sea turtles, schools of trevally and colorful reef fish along the many walls. Bangka and Manado Tua also feature a myriad of critters.

If you dive around the Sangihe Archipelago and Talaud Islands, the healthy reefs and volcanic activity yield many colorful reef fish and schools of fusilier, snapper and predators like trevally, barracuda and Dogtooth tuna. Macro life is also abundant and there are pygmy seahorses, crabs and shrimp as well as nudibranch to find at muck dive sites. Look out for pelagic animals which come to feed and clean like manta rays, sharks and even hammerhead sharks.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Two Fish Bunaken Dive Center has offered local diving for over 15 years
  • Small groups organised according to air consumption and experience
  • Long dives: you’ll only be asked to surface after 75 minutes or 40bar
  • Some divers have reported seeing up to six turtles on dives
  • Local Manado Wreck is a 60m WWII wreck

Description

The Two Fish Bunaken Dive Center is a purpose-built building located directly in the resort and steps away from the beach.

All must-see dive sites are about 10 minutes from the center, which is well-situated to explore the beautiful tropical ecosystems of the Bunaken Marine National Park.

The center is ideal for wreck divers or those seeking to do their wreck diving speciality: the Manado Wreck sunk in WWII and is now home to a host of marine life. For less-advanced divers, the area offers stunning sloping reefs to explore.

Dive groups are limited to four people per guide, organised to reflect air consumption and experience, giving divers more control over what they want to see and do. Divers are only asked to surface after 75 minutes or 40 bar. A well-stocked dive shops is on hand for your needs.
