Tanjung Arakan is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Tanjung Arakan is where we enter the southern part of the park. On this sloping part of the reef, it is still visible that dynamite and cyanide fishing once was part of a routine fishing method in the past. Those days are for the most part over thanks to the entrance fee and the daily patrols. The corals are showing that they are recovering already.
Interesting sites with lots of soft coral and good macro stuff. It is also one of the places were most probably we can show you pygmy seahorses.
In general the current is strong when the tides change, but in between, it is nice and calm. Snorkeling is possible too.
The whole southern part of the park still needs a lot more exploration. Until now all was focussed on and around Bunaken. However, the first few dives at Arakan showed definitely potential for this area too. We also invite you to come explore with us.
