How to get to Bunaken?

Living Colours together with Raya Divers are arranging two liveaboard trips to two of the world's richest coral reefs in January-March 2014. Trip begins from Living Colours Diving Resort, which is located in the heart of Bunaken National Marine Park and continues to tropical underwater paradise of Raja Ampat National Marine Park with liveaboard MSV Amira.

Almost three week trip will start from Living Colours Diving Resort situated on Bunaken island, North Sulawesi. With Living Colours we will have six diving days around the marine park. Bunaken is famous for its breath taking drop offs, but the area has also world class muck diving sites for critter lovers. All the divers are accommodated in traditional wooden bungalowes with great sea views and the restaurant serves both local and western delicacies.

Raja Ampat, the wet dream of divers around the world, will be the second destination of the trip. We will flight from Manado to Sorong, where liveaboard MSV Amira will pick us up and take us to Raja Ampat's amazing dive sites.

MSV Amira is equipped with a state of the art navigation system, security and rescue equipment and technology. With a length of 52 meters Amira offers 8 comfortable double cabins and two single cabins, all equipped with personal showers and toilets and natural lighting. There is a cozy restaurant, a romantic lounge area and a huge sun deck on board.

In eight days of diving we will explore Raja Ampat's excellent diving spots with over 1300 reef fish species including manta days. In the marine park there is also found more than 500 different species of corals, and the region has been proven to have the greatest coral reef biodiversity for its size in the world.
