Bunaken Marine Park, which is nearby Manado and Siladen island in North Sulawesi, is the place where the green turtles like to chill in the caverns and nest on beautiful beaches like the one at Siladen island where SSDA Diving Destination is.
We support ocean conservation with every our scuba diving activity and so “protect the green turtle” is our mission on Siladen island.
SSDA Diving Destination facilitates the bookings for two resorts located at Siladen island beach. The choice to stay there opens the doors to green turtle sanctuary.
We see the green turtles on almost every dive or snorkelling getaway. In the evenings we walk the beach to find them nesting. When we find them nesting we protect the eggs and then patiently wait for the release of the baby turtles into the sea. Did you know that the green sea turtle can lay between 85 and 100 eggs? And that the green turtle can nest several times in a season?
We make sure that SSDA subscribers know all about the developments in the resorts so that you don’t miss the event.
The “bare foot” resort consists Sea View Cottages, with stunning views of Manado and Bunaken, and Garden View Cottages, which are all built in traditional Minahasa style of North Sulawesi. The rooms are equipped with a double bed, minibar, air conditioning and ceiling fan.
The “sea horse” resort consists Cottages, Superior Rooms and small Villas. The Superior Rooms are on the upper floor of the main building, they are air-conditioned and each has its own large bathroom. The spacious Cottages, which were built with attention to detail and style, are distributed across the large beautiful garden: 2 Garden Family Cottages with 2 separate rooms, and 4 Beach View Cottages and 2 Beach Villas directly at the beach.
The price includes full board or half board, therefore you just indulge the time with the green turtles and we take care about everything else.
We typically plan up to four boat dives and snorkelling getaways per day, always depending on the site and weather conditions. The snorkelling from the beach is unlimited, as long as your eyes don’t get tired of watching the beautiful marine life at our house reef.
