Lembeh is the Mecca for Muck Diving, so you know can what you can wait at it's best! Different species of seahorses, octopuses, nudibranch and many other weird critters can be found. A heaven for macro lovers. Good buoyancy skills are a must!


Rising between Halmahera and Sulawesi, in the very deep open Sea of the Maluku, the dive sites around Tifore are mostly plateau’s with sheer walls and steep slopes. Here we can find a school of thousands barracudas and trevallys hanging in the current. This is a great dive site where your adrenaline gets going.



The Goraichi Islands have many great dive sites with one of the most amazing fish life zones in Halmahera. Stunning reefs overgrown with colorful hard and soft corals. Also pelagic coming by. Oceanic white tip sharks have been spotted.


Mantas can be seen around PULAU LELEI AND TOLIMAO. On Pulau Lelei we have a chance to visit the local village and walk around a bit taking selfies with the local inhabitants.



We can offer a great land tour organised by the Tourism Department of South Halmahera. This normally includes visiting the old Portuguese fort, traditional dancing, local market, and a few more.


Black sand diving, similar to Lembeh and Panambuang. A descent macro site where good critter life can be found.


In front of the Mosque there are a few wrecks on diveable depth. A perfect spot to do the last dive day with. Crocodile flatheads, nudibranchs, ghost pipefishes, etc. can be seen.
