PADI 5 STAR DIVE RESORT Living Colours on Bunaken Island, Manado, North Sulawesi, is a small idyllic resort with a professional dive centre. We are based on Bunaken Island, in the heart of the world famous Bunaken National Marine Park. Our beach front dive centre with high quality dive equipment is run by European PADI Instructors and experienced local diveguides. The ten wooden bungalows are situated on a small hill, only 60 steps from the beach, and have great sea views.
Our full service dive centre and professional, friendly crew offer boat diving in the magnificent walls of Bunaken National Marine Park and critter filled slopes in Manado Bay. Our environmentally conscious dive team will show you the best of Bunaken on long relaxed dives. All dives are boat dives in small groups guided by experienced local diveguides.
The coral reefs and the open ocean are bursting with life. Bunaken lies in the epicentre of the world’s marine biodiversity, and thus supports an amazing variety of marine animals. Here you can find over 2000 reef fish species and 500 genera of corals in more than 40 world famous dive sites.
At the ocean surface dolphins and pilot whales are frequently seen, and you might occasionally be surprised with sights of migrating humpbacked, killer, sperm or minke whales. Dugongs, or sea cows, are regularly spotted grazing in the reef shallows just in front of Living Colours Diving Resort.
