Pristine reefs, friendly people, personal service, rare species, quality dive boats
North Sulawesi is home to countless colourful and rare marine creatures. Visit over 140 uncrowded sites teeming with more than 1000 marine species, dive in warm waters on steep walls, explore the best critter diving in the world and discover a huge variety of mesmerising marine life.
Andrea Bensi, Jim Yanny and Cary Yanny operate the successful Eco Divers Resort Lembeh and the Eco Divers Manado dive centre at Minahasa Lagoon Resort, along with their team of dedicated, multilingual professionals.
With more than 30 years of diving experience between them, Jim and Cary are also co-owners of award-winning Emperor Divers in the Red Sea. Cary was the Executive Director of Hurghada Environmental Protection & Conservation (HEPCA), which still operates to ensure Red Sea environmental awareness.
Andrea was previously a Manager of Celebes Divers and Sales & Marketing Manager for Liveaboard Ocean Rover and knows what to offer the discerning diver and guest. He speaks several languages and is an avid diver and underwater photographer.
"We aim to provide the best quality service possible so that people can enjoy this very special underwater world, whilst always making sure that divers are happy, safe and environmentally aware," says Jim.
Both centers are PADI 5 Star Gold Palm IDC Resorts focusing on a top-quality service, personal attention, safety, comfort and environmental responsibility. We understand that diving is your holiday as well as your hobby, so we aim to take care of ALL arrangements from the moment you land to the moment you leave - so you can just relax! But, even more than that, we also enjoy life and sharing some special moments with our guests. We love what we do and we hope you will come and share in our special ambience.
We have been diving Bunaken National Park since 2001, operating out of Manado as well as the Lembeh Strait. This is a marvellous opportunity to dive two completely different and equally wonderful, environments; the dramatic and beautiful drop-offs of Bunaken and the fascinating, critter-rich volcanic sands of Lembeh.
As a member of the North Sulawesi Watersports Association (NSWA), Eco Divers is fully committed to the protection of its local reefs. We are actively involved in a number of conservation projects aimed at helping local fishing communities to sustain their reefs - the same reefs that we dive. We hope that you, our guests, will join us in our efforts to protect that which we all love so much!
Come and experience this fantastic diving combination - it is unbeatable.
