Great dive spots, around Bunaken and Siladen, You will see many turtles, some sharks and many many colourfull smaller stuff, Sometimes they have dolphins and orca's passing by but I did not see them. Coral is very healthy and full of live.

Our family of four loved diving here. We need more marine reserves like this. Lovely colourful soft corals, heaps of reef fish and wee critters. The visibility was amazing and the water was warm (28 degrees) Diving here is like meditation !

Enjoyed 9 days of diving late June 2018 with a variety of dives. The park has plenty of variety, we did walls, slopes and muck diving. Like all ocean access water, the bay suffers from trash but not overwhelming.

Bangka is a lovely island and October is a good time to visit. The only month that is not good for diving and Snorkeling is August, because of large waves and a choppy sea.
