We just got back from a four night stay at the Two Fish Divers Resort, Bunaken and had a great time. In terms of diving, 95% of the dive sites were wall dives and we had some great pelagic action too. The number of turtles was mind boggling and is only rivaled by Sipadan. The health of the reefs was fantastic and we we logged about 12 dives while diving in Bunaken.

We had a two-year old in tow and the resort owners said that they could arrange for a babysitter while we were out diving. One of the staff members had a wife that we hired to watch our daughter while we were out diving and she did very well. We were a little apprehensive at first, but they took to just walking around the resort and playing on the grounds while we were out diving. The nanny also brought her child in the mornings and the two of them played together. The entire staff helped looking after our daughter and they all knew her name by the time we left.

The resort was great. The staff were work horses and were eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They swapped our tanks, changed our kits and cleaned our gear after every day. Talk about service. They also had some interesting tec diving opportunities and expeditions. Where else can you go in the world to dive with prehistoric coelacanths?

I would reccomend Two Fish divers if you're considering a dive holiday there. We've dived across four continents, logged hundreds of dives and stayed in many budgets, and found the value for the diving at Bunaken is well worth it. One footnote though, do not, for any reason, miss out on the wonderful differences of diving at Lembah Strait too. We went to the "Two Fish Divers" resort there for a few nights and made a week of diving between the two places. Happy diving!

Room Tip: There are some budget options and deluxe rooms too. Our friends stayed in the budget room and the "missus" said that they should have upgraded to a deluxe where we stayed. It will be a few euros more per night, but we were more comfortable and had a lot of room.

I had the opportunity to experience five glorious drift dives in Bunaken with Two Fish Divers in March of 2012. From the beginning of my inquiry in February, first Nigel and then Liz provided my with all the information needed to get the trip organized and they were quick to respond. The variety of accommodations and pricing provide alternatives for most if not all divers and avail you of a very comfortable and laid back atmosphere in which to relax. But the reason for going is the diving and it is second to none. We saw shark, turtles, lion and scorpion fish, just to name a few. They also provide packages that enable you to dive two very distinct sites, Bunaken and Lembeh for some muck diving. Check them out; you will not regret it. Bob

Room Tip: Given that I traveled solo and was there to dive, I chose an economy room. As a couple, I would go for one of the superior accommodations, which are more spacious and comfortable.

My wife and I recently took a two-week dive holiday in Indonesia. Our dive trip was arranged by Two Fish Divers. Check out www.twofishdivers.com. Our stay and dives were memorable.

The first week was spent on Bunaken Island. We were met at the airport on Manado by a driver who took us to the boat launch. We were quickly loaded on the boat briefed about the boat ride and were off to the resort.

Bunaken is a national park. There are cabins that are well spaced, have hot and cold water, comfortable beds, and mosquito coils that are effective in keeping the insects at a safe distance. There is a dining area where the tables are set up family style. There are no assigned seats. The office and dive shop are close by and well equipped to handle minor problems with equipment. There is a good supply of “things” that divers decide they need and have left behind that are available. Divers can bring their own gear or rent from the shop. It would be best to make a reservation for dive gear if you do not travel with your own equipment. The boats are set up for easy doff and don of dive gear. The easiest entry into the water is a back roll. Exit from the water is a short ladder climb. Dive guides are there to help divers up the ladder or remove dive gear while in the water before reboarding the boat.

The bar and restaurant are set up close to the cabins and dining area. Both are open air and efficiently staffed to meet the needs of the divers. The food is good. It is all Indonesian. After the fourth day it did seem to be a bit repetitive, but we were there to dive, not to eat. The resort has WIFI. While we were there is worked well, but the dive resorts are at the mercy of the Indonesians who control the satellite reception, and there are times that WIFI is not available for whatever reason.

The diving is mostly wall dives in potentially strong current situations. Our dive guide was well prepared to deal with the currents. My wife and I were never put is a dangerous situation, although more aggressive divers who tend to stray from the dive group could find themselves far from the boat if the tides change in the middle of the dive. The sea can get pretty angry when one current decides that another is in its way. Opportunities for photographers are endless. Be sure to take at least one Mandarin Fish dive while you are at one of the resorts if you have not seen the beautiful little fish. You will not be disappointed. Night dives are available and should not be avoided, because the night animals are numerous.

After a week’s worth of diving on walls, we moved to the Two Fish Divers resort at Lembeh. There is no difference in the resort amenities other than the layout of the cabins and facilities. The dives are referred to as Muck Dives. For us the dives were not very “mucky”. The visibility was 10 meters or more on every dive. The amazing difference between the two resorts is the differences in the animal life at the bottom of the sea. In the Lembeh Straits where most of the diving takes place, there are some amazing fish. There is no shortage of unusual animals on every dive. The nudibranch population is incredible in both number and color. Our guide was excellent at finding unusual or rare fish that were out during the day.

Two weeks with Two Fish Divers was not enough to be able to soak in all that lies a the bottom of the Lembeh Strait. The resorts and the dive sites are worthy of return visits. Divers will not be disappointed no matter what their level of experience. Both sites are a photographers’ paradise. In my neck of the wood, we say, “If the Lord is willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will make a return visit in the near future.”
