underwater world

Diving & Snorkeling from Mapia Resort

From the Mapia Resort most dives take place along the coast of the mainland. Most dive sites here are a “mix” of the Lembeh Strait and the Bunaken Marine Park. Some of the strangest and rarest creatures live on and in the black volcanic sand, including frogfishes in all colors, harlequin ghost pipefish and flamboyant cuttlefish, to name just a few. You may start your dive on black sand, spotting rare and bizarre critters and nudibranchs, before continuing your dive over a coral reef or along a small colorful wall.

The House Reef, which is only a few meters from the shore, is home to a wide variety of fishes and critters and is a must for a relaxing afternoon dive and, especially, for a night dive.

On request, we organize day trips to Bunaken Marine Park for its amazing wall dives.

We also offer Blue-Light night dives that will show you the underwater world in a (literally) totally new light.
