In my experience the dive operation at the heart of the resort was extremely well organised and professionally run. As others have mentioned, all the gear/equipment is taken care of by the boat crew or your dive guide - leaving you to enjoy the spectacular and relaxed diving on offer at the many and varied dive sites. Small comforts like... More

We had a wonderful diving experience here with the family. The location is fantastic with many diving sites around. The wall diving is superb. We saw a lot of sea-life, including quite a few close turtle encounters. Thanks especially to Nat and Sandra who were excellent and friendly dive instructors!

We spent 6 days at Froggies had a great time with up to 4 dives a day all within 30 mins of the resort. They have 4 divers or less assigned to the local Indonesian divemaster/guide for great wall and drift dives with beautiful hard and soft corals. You will have the same dive guide during your stay and they... More

Our room was nice and our dive guide was good, but some of the dives were really short (even though we still had a lot of air left).

This was the best place ever. I really enjoyed doing my PADI Advanced here. The dive sites were all incredible. If anything there is probably too much to see underwater.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Froggies Divers is a small dive resorts and eco-friendly PADI operation on Bunaken and Lembeh Island.We try to make it a home away from home and many of our guests also become friends. Our main concern is to offer a very personal service and exceptional diving. The groups are small, no more than 4 guests per guide . We take good care not only of our divers but also of preserving marine life. All our boats are equipped with Oxygen, First Aid and safety standard procedure.With the help of our experienced crew and our Indonesian English speaking dive guides we try to make the operation run as smoothly as possible.In order to show you all the riches of our underwater world we choose long, slow and relaxed dives; no need to go very deep, most of the beauties are well above the 30m, and we like to take long long safety stops, while admiring the upper part of the reef. Your dive time is limited by your air consumption, you will be underwater for at least from 60 - 75 minutes on most of your dives. ... more   less
