we had the best dive in our life..if u want to dive or even snorkel so close to mantas or dolphins and much more that's the way. ..we spent very nice time with all the amazing staff. next time we'll find the new airport of maratua and the trip will be much easier. let's go to the ecofriendly paradise !

I and my girlfriend have never dived in Indonesia before so so we cannot compare it to other places in the country; but we have dived in Cozumel, Costa Rican Pacific, La Réunion Island and other places in the world and, to date, here we had the best dives ever. Maybe our lack of extensive experience in diving (some 40...

We spent a week there and cried when leaving. The place is exceptional for its nature beauty, snorkel and diving opportunities, charming and perfectly clean accommodation and excellent abundant food. The Island manager takes flawless care of her guests and helps you feel as if in Paradise. The journey there is bit complicated and long but definitely worth it. For...

We have enjoyed a full week of relaxation and fun diving. It is definitely the perfect place to disconnect from your daily routine and obligations. The island is beautiful, the restaurant prepares very good and balanced food and the staff is extremely friendly and reliable. If we could give a little piece of advice, it would be great to have...

After a horrible experience at Maratua Paradise Resort, we received a warm welcome at Nabucco Island. The management and staff are extremely kind and helpful and made our stay an unforgetable experience. The small private island consists of only a few bungalows which are very comfortable, clean and allow you to walk straight into the sea from your room. The...

Did some diving with Nabucco Island Resort (stayed at Maratua Guest House). Great diving (big and small fishes, sharks, turtles, mostly healthy corals), excellent dive master (Alfonso if I remember correct), professional management and good equipment. Do not miss Big Fish Country! / Adam

I thought it would take a lot to beat Sipadan, but Big Fish Country really does equal the best of Barracuda Point there! We dived with Extra Divers on Nabucco but stayed in Maratua Guest House. We were able to get a motorbike transfer to the jetty where we picked up Nabucco's free staff boat transfer each morning at 7am...
