25 km West of Gorontalo, accessible by a winding road, best by motorbike or car as public transport seems irregular and would drop you a couple of kms from the village- but don't let that put you off.
I had my own snorkelling gear but you can probably find, and I rented a life jacket- which I find useful. Direct access to the reef and not at all far to the drop off.
Good visibility even in the rainy season. Lots of fish who swam much closer to me than at Bunaken. Though it was a little rough this was not a problem and there was no strong current.
On the way you will pass the village frequented by whale sharks ( you can't miss it as there are lots of signs). Unfortunately they were not in residence at the time of my visit, but hopefully they have not left permanently- locals will know.
