Being an MSD, I have dived in many locations around the world with many different dive operators. I can honestly say the boat crew are the best i have experienced in 15 years of diving. Superb diving around Bunaken National Park, and to top it off we saw a Whale Shark at circa 15m. Lots and lots of large turtles... More

I completed my Advanced Open Water Certification with Eco Divers. From the starting email to the end of my diving with them, they were fantastic. Very prompt in their communication, excellent service, good quality gear and fantastic team! The boat even had a shower; which was a nice touch. Everyone speaks English, the crew are friendly and capable, and my... More

Eco divers were very professional. It was very easy to book through them for everything including the resort, which was much nicer than I had expected. The day dive trip to Lembeh was worth it to see so many fabulous critters! All dive guides were good, helpful and safe. The walls in Bunaken were spectacular, so many turtles!!!

We didn't have much time on this trip. It was my second visit to Lembeh. We stayed in cheap, but comfortable homestay in Bitung and went on day trips with Eco divers. They'd pick us up and take us to the liveaboard. From there we'd go by small boat to the dive sites. I've appreciated the service and am thankful... More

ECO Divers leaves us terrible experience. We stayed in Mercure Tateli Resort for a few days and we found Mercure was a pretty good resort. But we have no idea why there is a poor dive centre like ECO Divers! We went snorkeling with them that day. They used a tiny boat bring us to the wavy open seas. After... More

I used ECO Divers at both Minahasa (its home before the Mecure) and Lembeh. Enjoyed the diving at both locations - Bunaken and Lembeh Strait.

I didn't stay at the resort (which seemed to be very nice), but just came there for 1 day diving (3 dives). Because there was some misunderstanding, we were late to leave diving 1.5 hour. But then the manager Andrea came, apologized me a few times for waiting this long and said that I would be diving for free! That... More

Easy booking, great infrastructure & facilities as part of hotel's vicinity. Skillful & friendly staff help my solo travel as if diving with my best buddies. One of the best dive site with pristine water and bio diversity. For sure will be back with my family.

Super happy and satisfied with everything. Andrea (Eco Divers manager) & Vincent (Mercure manager) greeted my family and I upon arrival and took great care of us during our stay. The hotel was clean and the renovated rooms were pretty to stay in with its "beachy" vibes. The lobby and lounge is nice to sit around, and the hotel employees... More

Eco divers have a couple of locations. We visited the Lembeh resort. This is a weird combination of a lovely town based resort with trips to Lembeh strait via minivan and boat with dives based off a daily liveaboard. It works! The diving is unbelievable and the guides very knowledgable
