What to expect
Tasik Divers, a PADI dive centre, is located on the resort’s premises. The dive team is headed by an experienced PADI dive instructor assisted by a local, knowledgeable team of divers. Their highly trained, experienced and friendly dive team lives for the diving so each one is the ideal buddy for your Tasik diving experience. At Tasik Divers you can discover the best of North Sulawesi’s diving: Bunaken National Park, Lembeh Strait and the Bangka Archipelago.
In addition to the daily boat dive trips, PADI dive courses are offered in several languages.
Rental equipment and 12L (80 cuft) aluminium tanks are available at the Dive Shop, with Nitrox available at an extra charge. A well-equipped camera room is also available.
Daily 2-tank dive trips to the famous Bunaken National Park are offered. They use two 20m long diving boats with sundeck, lounge, toilet, storage space for cameras, emergency & first aid kits, DAN Oxygen System, radio, GPS and separate dive deck. The journey takes about 50-90 minutes depending on the dive sites chosen. The dive shop also offers 3-tank boat trips to the further afield dive sites of Lembeh Strait and Bangka and Gangga Island for groups (at extra cost).
The resort has a great house reef. Starting from the jetty stairs, you can discover lion fish, anemone fish, sea horses, pygmy seahorses, octopus, nudibranchs and colourful corals. There are also options to include mandarin fish spotting night dives. Tasik Divers offer small groups of 4 divers to 1 guide.
Bunaken National Park offers some 25 dive sites spread around 5 different islands. The health of the reefs, the incredible biodiversity, and the variety of terrain (the east and west sides are very different) suited to wall and drift diving means you will run out of time before you run out of dive spots.
We think …
A good little dive resort with friendly and attentive staff. Ideal for divers and non-divers alike.
