Dive the Best of Both Worlds with Eco Divers. We are the most experienced dive operator in North Sulawesi offering services in both Manado and Lembeh.

Since 2004 we’ve been combining these two exceptional dive destinations seamlessly into one extraordinary holiday itinerary. You can enjoy Manado and Lembeh with a minimum of effort – just leave everything to us!

We operate from Eco Divers Resort Lembeh and Minahasa Lagoon Resort, Manado. Road transfers are provided between the two resorts and we can even organize transfers on diving days, so you don’t miss a beat. We understand just how important your diving is to you.

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!
