World class diving in an incredible, undeveloped location that is relatively easy to get to, fantastic service, great food and kid friendly to boot. What’s not to love? Especially for parents who dive.
We just got home from an amazing trip to Bunaken Island where we stayed and dove with Two Fish Divers. We met one of the owners at a dive show in Singapore and after hearing how kid friendly they were, we were convinced that we needed to give it a shot. We have an 18 month old and our goal for the dive show was to find kid friendly dive destinations.
Let me say that we were not disappointed. The staff was fantastic with our son and completely put us at ease. My wife was able to go diving every morning without worrying. Every day when we returned our son was busy having fun playing with the nanny and usually several other staff members along with the owners’ small children. I know how challenging it is to find a place that caters to parents with small children. I would strongly recommend Two Fish to diving families with small children.
The resort was clean and well ran. Abraham, the operations manager was friendly, personable and eager to insure that everything was perfect for our stay. The food was great and the rest of the staff was always helpful.
The dive operation was also well run with friendly, competent dive masters and staff. The boats have an abundance of shade and the diving is some of the best on the planet.
I’m rating the rooms four, not because they are on par with a high end hotel, but because they are great for what they are indented to be. The resort is a budget resort that caters to divers of all levels. It’s not a Sandals or Club Med and is not intended to be, but is excellent for what it is intended to be, and the value cannot be beat.
If you are a diver (with or without small children) and like being around unpretentious down to earth people, then I would highly recommend this place. We had a fantastic time with friendly and interesting people from all over the world. We will be returning soon.
