Buddies,

Karena negara kita sangat luas, faktor musim jelas signifikan pengaruhnya terhadap dive destinations kita. Saya nggak tau apakah di forum ini pernah dibuat satu database mengenai diving season di wilayah2 negara kita?

Kalau memang belum ada, coba kita compile dalam 1 thread ini yuk, pastinya akan sangat membantu kita merencanakan best time to go for diving.

Thanks a lot untuk partisipasinya :)

Salam,
Rendra

Best season: November - April

Di luar November - April dive di Gorontalo akan sangat challenging karena ombak yang cukup besar.

Dive center Miguel hanya beroperasi antara November hingga April.

Untuk yang mau diving di luar November - April bisa bersama local divers disana.

Manado dan sekitarnya adalah year-round diving destination dengan catatan:

Bunaken:
Best/Optimum season: April - November

Pulau Bangka best viz pada bulan Maret - Juni

Lembeh:
You can dive in Lembeh all year but the conditions do vary. January to June sees variable (but still fine) conditions and less divers. August sees the poorest visibility but the richest numbers of critters. September to October are probably the best two months overall.

Liveaboard season in the Lembeh Strait diving area runs year round.

Sangihe
You can dive at the Sangihe Archipelago all the year round but the conditions do vary from season to season. March to June is the best time as it's the dry season and the visibility is at its best. July to October can be windy, and November to December is generally wet; both seasons having less visibility.
