Great communication through email before our trip, very professional, also flexible, and gave us a great day of diving of the beautiful coral walls in Bunaken and wonderful memories to take home with us. Would definitely dive with Thalassa again.

The slogan of Thalassa is correct: you arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. Thalassa is an old but cozy, friendly resort with lovely people. Simone knows how to rum this place with respect of the local people. She started a school where...More
