The Passport to Paradise package allows you to explore 3 distinctive dive destinations in one holiday, without missing dive days transferring by car.

Murex 3You’ll be transferred between these 3 resorts on Murex’s spacious, purpose made dive boats; you just worry about having a good time relaxing, diving or snorkeling along the way. No hassles with luggage either; since you’ll be using your camera and dive gear it will be loaded right onto the boat by Murex’s professional dive crew, and at the end of the day you’ll have the comfort of a land based operation who intimately knows the area.

This itinerary allows you to visit and see all of North Sulawesi’s amazing underwater diversity – from pristine walls in Bunaken National Park and viewing a kaleidoscope of reef colours in Bangka to the world’s highest concentration of unusual marine life in the Lembeh Strait.

When:  Available year round (weather & seas permitting)

Where: North Sulawesi, Indonesia – Bunaken Marine Park, Bangka Island, Lembeh Resort

Cost: Varies – depending on number of hotel nights (full board meal plan included), amount of dives, number of divers, etc.
