We spend a week at this resort diving after completing a week at the Eco Divers Lembeh Resort. They were two very different experiences both in accommodations and diving. The Minahasa Resort is lovely. The cottages are beautiful wood buildings. The bathrooms are a part of the cottage but have open air access so you can hear the waves of... More

I went diving for 3 days with Eco Divers while staying at Minahasa Lagoon resort in Manado, and I couldn't be happier. Sulawesi has beautiful dive sites, so you know beforehand it will be a good experience, but the quality of the dive company definitely makes all the difference. They are experient and knowleadgeable and really take care of their... More

We arrived at the Minahasa Lagoon after a week at Lembeh. The diving was run by the same company Eco divers. The diving was excellent. We liked Jerod by far the best, taking care to look after us in currents and showing us the creatures. The boat staff were all good but some much more attentive than others, Dolphi being... More

Everything about our time with Eco Divers Manado was great. It was quiet and uncrowded. The diving is excellent (easy, warm water, abundance of lovely things to see) and the dive team with both the guides and boat crew are spot on. We alternated between Bunaken island and the mainland, and saw a wide variety of life at both. They... More

The dive boats are spacious with lots of dry space and a head. At low tide, divers must wade out to boat otherwise boarding is dockside. When diving Bunaken Marine Park, trip out takes about 1 hour with 2 tanks at the park. After a lunch on board and a return trip to the resort, the PM dive is at... More

Dived with Eco Divers in Lembeh and Manado. The operation in Lembeh is managed by Tarkan and Kathrin. You spend the whole day on a boat anchored in the centre of Lembeh. A smaller boat takes you to the dive site. So like being on a liveaboard. Whilst the boat looked a little tired, the whole experience was excellent. The... More

Just spent an excellent day diving with Eco-divers. The staff were very professional, the boat well equipped for divers & we had some great dives in Bunaken National Park. Next time I will stay out there at Minahasa Lagoon Resort where they are based.
