Bunaken National Park

It is almost as big as the german island RĂ¼gen, but is 97 percent ocean – the Bunaken National Park. There are over 30 diving spots here, surrounded by the islands of Bunaken, Siladen, Manado Tua, Montehage and Nain.

Visibilities of 20 to 30 meters or even more and a huge varity of corals and fish species make the Bunaken National Park a unique diving area. Here are seven times more coral species than Hawaii – and the fascinating dive experience are the famous drop off walls from Bunaken

70 percent of all fish species in the West Indies Pacific are found here: spiny mackerel (Seriola rivoliana), blue-banded snapper, anthias (Pseudanthias hypselosoma), soporelon snapper.
