North Siladen And East Siladen Dive Site in

Bunaken and Siladen

Located in the east (Timur) and north (Utara) of the main island, these two dive sites have distinctive topographies. The east part is similar to other places in Bunaken and Siladen, with shallow reefs before descending gently into sloping walls. The deep walls many associates with Bunaken are absent in the northern area. Instead, it consists of a gentle slope that goes beyond 50 meters.

The difference in the marine life species between these two sites is inconsequential since both have stunning underwater life. Huge sea fans and soft corals blanket the slope walls, making these the ideal place to see nudibranchs, scorpionfish, lionfish, and sometimes turtles can be found resting. While on the sandy part, crocodile fish and mantis shrimp create the perfect hiding spot.

The northern area specifically attracts larger fish, like jacks, tuna, and bumphead parrotfish, which are commonly spotted. Although most of the landscape consists of rocky reefs, soft corals can still be found. Reef octopuses sometimes hide inside the holes on the reef floor, so keep an eye out for one.
