Rate Revisions for Next Diving Season - May 21, 2013
We have just completed updating the web site to reflect the upcoming diving season, which will begin in mid October. We have been able to negotiate special discounts for divers, so our rates are actually lower than last season! That is great news for divers who want to get the most value. Gorontalo has entered wave season. But if you are traveling here anyway, please contact us about diving possibilities during off season.

Brilliant Dive on the Pinnacle - May 02, 2013
Although Sulawesi is not known for its pinnacle dives, Gorontalo has multiple pinnacles available. Today, divers' choices included wreck, wall, muck and pinnacle diving. Those who opted for the large pinnacle that we call Sunken Island enjoyed a brilliant dive. Visibility reached 20 meters, revealing the dense coral growth and clouds of anthias and chromis hovering over the pinnacle. Also sighted were Gold-spec jawfish, Black nemos, a barracuda getting its teeth cleaned, a blue ribbon eel, schools of unicornfish, at least ten very large Tiger grouper, three Bumphead parrotfish, a large snapper, a Hawksbill turtle and a school of tuna.

Whale shark alert - April 16, 2013
Divers with Miguel's Diving staff today enjoyed seeing a 6 to 7 meter long whale shark. We are currently assisting with a coral research project. This is actually the third whale shark sighting this month in Gorontalo. Last week a small one, measuring only three meters, got lost in shallow waters and local fishermen towed it out to sea. The first one sighted by Miguel's Diving staff earlier in the month was not quite as large as the one today. Although Sulawesi diving is not known for its whale shark encounters, divers in Gorontalo can see them.
