Siladen diving

Siladen’s surrounding waters are an ideal location for video imagery. They offer varied environments, each with their specific challenges. Bunaken National Marine Park is a wide-angle heaven with its spectacular walls and diverse marine life which includes countless turtles.

Nearby shallow areas allow for macro and muck opportunities, not to

mention a host of night denizens that include weird and sought-after creatures. The dark is also a wonderful time to capture hunting behaviors.

The area’s warm and clear waters optimize learning, not to mention fun and action-packed diving.
