From Manado to Bunaken Island
If you let us know when you are coming, we are happy to pick you up from the airport and arrange transportation all the way to Living Colours Dive Resort on Bunaken Island.
In case you wish to come to the island on your own you can get a public boat, which leaves from the harbour at around 2pm every day except Sundays, or you can charter a private boat at any time. The boat ride takes 45-60 minutes. The public boat will drop you off in Bunaken Village from where you can walk (about 30 minutes) or hire a boat to take you to our resort.
