Great disappointment in diving Bunaken. While there are plentiful of fish and coral (average vis), there is so much trash. When coming on the boat from Manado to the island you can already see the accumulation of trash. When diving there is trash, plastic sinking down and the fish and turtles nibble on it.
The park entrance fee you pay is used by the officers for their own consumption of alcohol, women and drugs. The dive guide said when he was diving leisurely on the other side of the island he had to stop mid way bc of the trash swamping in his face. Its very sad that Indonesia would devastate their national trove of underworld oasis like this.
