OVERSEAS TRIP – Manado & Lembeh (N. Sulawesi, Indonesia) November 2019 CLOSED

LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE!! BOOK YOUR SPOT NOW!!

Diversion Dive Travel has put together exclusively for our club a fabulous combination trip of 5 nights in Manado + 5 nights in Lembeh in North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Manado is among the highlights of diving in Indonesia.  When you’re scuba diving in Bunaken National Marine Park, you’ll witness some of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world, with outstanding fish variety and world-class steep walls that descend down to as deep as 1600m.  The clear, warm waters contain astonishingly high numbers of species, whether corals, sponges or fish.   There is also an opportunity to dive further north in Bangka Archiapelago (beautiful coral meadows, variety of marine life) and south in Popooh (muck diving).

Thalassa 5 Star Padi Resort Manado

Lembeh probably requires no introduction at all, being regarded as the top muck dive site in the world with a huge variety of weird and wonderful marine creatures such as the flamboyant cuttlefish, wonderpus and mimic octopus, to name a few.   It is a must for keen photographers, but also for anyone simply interested in seeing rare critters.

The trip dates are  Thurs 14 – Tues 26 November 2019:  10 nights/18 boat dives + unlimited shore dive package, flying with Virgin/Singapore Airlines/Silk Air.  As this will require overnights on both legs of the journey, the whole trip will be 12 nights/13 days departing Cairns.
