Miss the crowds

It’s also not overly crowded. You and your dive crew may be the only ones on a dive spot.

The island is remote. I’m talking very remote. As in no ATMs, spotty wifi, electricity that cuts off now and then and roads that are paths cut through the forest.

The town is little more than a strip with vendors selling T-shirts and cokes. Don’t expect to buy a sim card here.

Be warned, there is trash. It depends on what junk is drifting from Manado. The beaches are covered in trash. The resorts keep small areas in front of their hotels picked up.

Things to note

Water temperature is about 27°c or 80°f

Mostly wall and drift dives

The current can be swift.

Yes! Bucket list diving

Absolutely recommend diving here! This one is not to be missed.
