Please note that this itinerary is only a guideline, one among the multiple options we have. It may change according to the prevailing conditions such as weather, visibility, or other diving conditions during the cruise.

Day 1:

Arrival at Manado International airport where you are welcomed by the Wallacea staff. Transfer to the boat in air-conditioned vehicles (transfer takes around 1hour 20 minutes) which is moored in Bitung. Welcome drink, lunch, briefing. Departure during the night for Ratotok.

Day 2:

Diving along the East coast of North and Central Sulawesi: Ratatotok will be our check dive, on a gentle slope with nice corals and a lot of critters. Dive will follow at Tanjung Flesko with more action around this rock packed with fishes. Napoleon wrasses, schools of surgeons fishes and barracudas, enormous murenas. The 3rd dive is a beautiful slope with many critters in the bay of Flesko, where we will do a night dive and spend the night.

Day 3:

Going West, we will dive along the coast in Bolsel area, a  recently discovered zone that looks very promising. 4 dives and a night dive

Day 4: 

Gorontalo area. Fantastic walls with overhangs, crevasses, beautiful soft corals, and the famous “Dali” sponge (named after its intricate, swirling surface pattern). Possibility to see whale sharks. We’ll do three dives + a night dive there before to navigate to Togian islands during the night

Day 5:

Togian, Una-Una island. We will stay 2 days around this volcanic island (the last eruption was in 1984 and the traces are clearly visible) where the dive sites look like boosted by volcanic ashes. The dive site of Apollo is home to probably what is the biggest school of barracudas in Indonesia, tunas, napoleon wrasse, and a lot of other fishes. Other dive sites have also very rich fish life; sponges of all shapes around Una-Una are enormous. 3 dives + night dive

Day 6:

3 day dives + 1 night dive around the island of Una-Una

Day 7:

Togian islands, Kadidiri area. 2 dives in Kadidiri including the seamount of “Batu Gila” (crazy stone), where fish life is impressive, including generally grey reef sharks and eventually hammerhead sharks. We will then pass a narrow strait between the islands to reach the site of B24 plane wreck.

Day 8:

During the night we reach the Eastern part of the Togian islands, and we will spend the day diving in Waleabahi area. Walls dropping in the blue, abundant fish and critter life, and manta rays. During the night we will steam to the end of the Peninsula that closes the South of Tomini Bay, the area of Pulau Dua. Wallacea loved so much the diving in this area that we did build a resort there.

Day 9:

ulau Dua area. The diving takes place on rocky ridges and pinnacles or big boulders on the sandy bottom. Colorful soft corals, black corals, sea fans cover the rocky substrate; the fish life is extremely wealthy; While some reef dive sites are very fishy, some others are more for critters and macro photography.

Dives in Pulau Dua area, night dive.

Day 10:

3 Dives and night dive in Pulau Dua area.

Day 11:

One or two dives in Pulau-Dua area, then we will go to visit a beach where we can observe Maleo birds, a rare bird that digs holes on beaches to borrow their egg. Here is protected one of the biggest remaining populations of these birds. In the evening we steam to Luwuk, our disembarkation port.

Day 12:

Breakfast, farewell, and transport to the Luwuk airport.

Departing From Bitung, close to Manado International Airportthe “central Sulawesi” visits the East coast of Sulawesi and the Togian islands. It ends in Luwuk. Beautiful dive sites of the East coast in the areas of Ratatotok, Tanjung Flesko, and Gorontalo (fabulous walls and whale sharks !). We then dive the best spots of the Togian islands, especially around the islands of Una2. the two last days are spent in the Tompotika area where Wallacea recently did set up a dive resort, Tompotika Dive Lodge, just because we found dive spots that are among of the best dive sites of Indonesia!

The cruise starts in the evening. You can arrive at 13:15 by the Silkair flight of the cruise departure day. The cruise ends in Luwuk, where daily flights can bring you back to Manado. Alternatively you can fly to any other major city of Indonesia via Makasar.
