NORTH SULAWESIFROM MUCK TO MARINE PARKSHaveyou heard about the world-famous muck diving in the Lembeh Strait? The phenomenal wall dives and turtles of the Bunaken Marine Park or the kaleidoscopic coral reefs of Bangka Island? These three locations offer some of the best and most diverse diving in North Sulawesi, Indonesia and it’s possible to see them all in one trip.
Bunaken Marine Park was one of the first Marine Protected Areas in Indonesia – and it shows. The dive sites around this small island are characterised by vertical coral walls which are teeming with life. The resident population of green sea turtles has grown from strength to strength and at some dive sites you’ll lose count of the number of turtles you see in a single dive.
Bangka Island is as beautiful underwater as it is on land. This lush green island is surrounded by white sandy beaches and a fringing reef of soft corals bursting with colour. Schooling snappers, passing reef sharks, occasional dugongs and an array of reef fish and critters have all made Bangka Island their home. Bangka offers phenomenal diving and a chance to get completely off the grid on this remote tropical island. Just a few years back this island was threatened by an exploratory mining license, but thankfully, the local diving community rallied and fought off this ecological threat.
The Lembeh Strait is home to highest concentration of rare and unusual marine life on Earth. Exploring Lembeh’s world famous muck diving sites is akin to opening a treasure trove of critters. Even the most seasoned of divers can’t help but be impressed by the species found here: eight different species of frogfish, flamboyant cuttlefish, wunderpus, mimic octopus, blue ring octopus, bobtail squids, harlequin shrimps, tiger shrimps, three species of pygmy seahorse, countless species of nudibranch, bobbit worms, Ambon scorpionfish and rhinopias – to name but a few.
