Was in Gorontalo last weekend for two days of diving with Miguels Diving and I can't say enough good things about the experience. Even before arrival, Rantje and his team were going above and beyond.

Just kidding about the leash but we went two days and saw him both days!! It was amazing!

Actually, when someone asks for confirmation on a future date to see whale sharks, we kindly explain that they are not tied on a rope or to a work contract! We do often see them, but they are naturally migrating through the area. Our Facebook page gives current information on their availability for scuba divers. We are so glad that... More

I would love to share mine and my travel partners Ben and Shir, deepest warmth and appreciation to Rantje, and our alternative dive guide Nune. Not to mention all the dive boat team that made Gorontalo dive so special. With warmth and smiles we hit the water, and was amazed not only but their expert knowledge but professionalism and general... More

If you plan to visit Gorontalo dive when Miguel's! We did 11 dives with Rantje and team they run a really neat operation. From the start of my trip to the end everything was well planned.

Had 7 dives with Miguel's. Professional, not only in dive skills but also photography. The team offered beyond expectation service. This is my first time dealing with DC taking care of our own equipment, clean them up after dive series, even bring them to our hotel in the next day. Furthermore, om Rantje distributed Gorontalo city-guide to his guests, something... More

We were diving with Miguel's Diving Gorontalo (9-12 Dec 2016), the sites chosen were excellent, the dive guides, especially Yunis and Odeng were great. Not only they guided us to the great sites, but also gave us some very valuable tips on taking the pictures underwater... Simply loved it. We didn't have a lucky chance to see the Whale sharks.....and... More

My daughter and I more-than-enjoyed our mother/daughter dive trip with Miguel’s Dive Center. I’ve been diving for over 50 years but never in Indonesia. We had the worst of luck.

Thanks so much for taking time to post your impressions. You are correct to note that Gorontalo is not a tourist destination with development catering to foreign visitors. Land along the coastline is not available, so all accommodation is in friendly Gorontalo City. More
