Manado / Bunaken

Situated in North Sulawesi, just off the coast of Manado, Bunaken Island is world-renowned for wall diving, vibrant, healthy coral life, turtles, and vast numbers of fish with the occasional chance of a Whale Shark. There is an international airport in Manado, accessed from Singapore, but it can also be flown to from Davao, Philippines, once flights are back in operation.

Best Locally Operated Dive Resort

Tasik Ria has been locally owned and operated since its inception. For the level of service, relaxing environment, local responsibility, dive operation, and the fantastic scenery from the jetty bar, yes, they have their own pier. Task Ria gets our vote as Manado’s best locally operated dive resort.
