Exploration trip – Ulu Bay Siau Island – North Sulawesi

Siau Island, North Sulawesi

We already plan to do an exploration trip to this location. At the moment will be myself and one of our staff. The plan is to survey the prospect location of operating dive center(possible resort) around the area. And the dive sites there.

Base from our study. The area can offer different kind of diving. From muck, coral, drift and deep dive. Also have underwater volcano here.

As usual. When come to diving. Planning is most important. We always think worst cast scenario. At the moment i already did the trip plan and emergency and evacuation plan(in case of emergency).

Budget will depend on the no of people joining the trip. Hopefully i can make this trip after few of my trip have to cancel hehehehee

    Masak lomak ayam tu kalau bubuh daun limau purut boleh mengamcam selera tuan haji kita kat Makkah tu.
