We are very flexible on how dive resorts run their operation. You can read about Two-Fish from others here. Specifically in regards to the mangrove-hike at low tide, too many on some dive outings, the food etc. We can easily accept all that. And we concur with all; Two Fish staff was great. Pool is awesome also.
But we came to dive.
Their wall diving was nowhere near the best we have experienced. Frankly, disappointing. And further, there was trash floating at every single dive site. Maybe due to a recent storm or just proximity of Bunaken Island to Manado. Don't know but we failed to understand the grandeur of it all. Especially with rest stops spent picking up hand-fulls of trash. We have been diving for a couple of decades and we put this area near the bottom third of dive locations. We will not recommend the diving here. Too many other nice places on the planet.
One final thought and this is not specific to Two Fish alone, but why are so many afternoon dives conducted so close to the resort? We know it is about money, but afternoon dives should be done on walls facing west so you get sun. Two fish is on the east side so we repeatedly got dark, close to resort dives in the afternoon. It is a shame when that extra effort is not made.
