I would recommend diving in Gorontalo with Miguel's Diving in a heartbeat! We went there as an impulse visit during end of year break and Rantje was super helpful from the get-go. He arranged the pick-up to our hotel and was there to greet us when we arrived. Complete with BCDs and fins to try on! He also gave us recommendation on dinner places and a map around the area. Very handy indeed :)
Rantje also did the morning pick-ups and when we arrived in the dive center the boat will be all loaded up ready for an exciting dive day! Yay! Rantje will bring his magic slate and write down fish and coral names during the dive. He even named corals after our names! (Mia's pink lace coral and Gita's Orange Coral). Their DMs (Yunis & Undeng) were superb and knows the area like the back of their hand. We felt at ease even in the darkest spot of Jin's Cave. We would eat lunch they have prepared for us and we were very happy not only because how good it was but they also uses reusable food storage instead of disposable ones.
In terms of the dive sites, there are at least 38 of them so its better to stay there for a long period. We only got 6 dives during our stay and ended up wanting to extend it. Gorontalo is like none others. You can literally see tropical forest underwater with giant salvador dalis and beautiful sea creatures. Cave diving in Jin Caves was also something we would never forget! Captivating!
All and all, it was perfection!
