“Beautiful but in Danger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Considering that this is supposed to be a protected area, it's a shame that there isn't more being done to prevent the huge quantities of garbage from landing in this magnificent sea. Twice I left the water due to floating garbage. It really takes away from the experience. There are places though, that are more protected from the Manado trash...

It´s amazing to visit Bunaken. It´s paradise for diving and snorkling. I reaally enjoyed the trips. It´s just 1 hours off from Manado north of Sulawesi.
