Bunaken National Marine Park
This is a protected park of 75,265 hectares. In this area you find most of the species of coral fishes known to exist in Indonesia. There are more than 30 dive sites around five islands, including Montehage and Manado Tua. Because of its amazing visibility (20-30 meters), it is considered one of the best places in the world for diving. In 1997, a giant, prehistoric fish, the Coelacanth, which was thought to be extinct for more than 400 million years, was discovered here. Gangga Island is at a distance of 75 minutes from this diving paradise where you can dive with eagle rays, jackfish, tuna, sharks, turtles, napoleons, barracudas and so on.
