Thalassa Dive Center Manado

5* PADI IDC Dive Center Thalassa was founded in 1996 and since that time is managed by Simone Gerritsen, originally from Holland.

Simone being a PADI Course Director, made it possible for the company to get the official PADI IDC center status, where the instructors on site teach most PADI programs from snorkeler to Instructor. The Dive Center is located on the premises of 4* Seaside Resort Santika, 15 kilometers north of Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi. The resort and dive center can be found on the mainland, amongst waving palm trees and lush mangrove forests, in the middle of the famous National Park of Bunaken which is one of the most diverse areas in the world in terms of underwater life.


Digital Camera & Dive Equipment Rental

As any well run dive center, Thalassa offers a well maintained and complete inventory of 40 rental sets. We have chosen comfortable and reliable equipment from the brands Aqualung and SeaQuest. Fins, masks, snorkels and wetsuits are chosen from different brands to ensure the best possible fit for all guests. For those guests who would like to bring home a life long memory of the great walls of Bunaken National Park and beyond, we sell our Thalassa sea life DVD or you can rent out digital camera’s and burn your results on a CD to bring home.


Dive Boats

Thalassa is run by divers for divers and therefore are all our boats designed to carry divers comfortably and safely without loosing the local touch. You still will feel that you are in another country and culture. You won’t hit your head, won’t break your neck over someone else’s equipment, nobody will step on yours and most importantly, you will not dive in a crowd.

Our 7 operational boats carry between 6 (Thalassa 8)-16 divers (Thalassa 12)  as a maximum. Most boats have a toilet on board and of course are all boats equipped with all necessary safety equipment, including well equipped first aid box and oxygen kit.
