Strategically located off the northern tip of Sulawesi between Pulau Bunaken and the Lembeh Strait, the Bangka Islands are part of what makes this region a dive haven. This is where to go for pinnacle diving, and it’s also a prime spot for big fauna: dolphins, manta rays and at least nine species of whale all migrate through these waters around March and April and again in August and September. At all times you’re likely to see tuna, batfish, jacks and barracuda. There are often fairly strong currents but these make the plentiful soft corals bloom. Away from the pinnacles, you’ll find pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs and leaf fish in the coral gardens.
