A very warm welcome to Nomad Divers Bangka, as featured on UK television on Jimmy Doherty’s Escape To The Wild!

Set in a beautiful bay on the peaceful island of Bangka, we offer the world class scuba diving of North Sulawesi, Indonesia right on our doorstep. Ideally located east of Bunaken National Park and offering special trips to Lembeh Strait as well as Bunaken, Nomad Divers promises a wide variety of diving to satisfy divers of any experience.

Our beach resort is owned by Sophie and Simon from the UK who are delighted to welcome you to our little island home! The resort was built with the help of the local community using local materials and techniques. Our peaceful bay is home to many species of birds, cus-cus and rare tarsiers and feels like a real castaway resort!

Sophie and Simon, your hosts

With a resident pod of spinner dolphins in the bay, seahorses on our house reef and a friendly dugong grazing on the abundant sea grass, the aquatic environment is healthy and blissfully free of crowds. The diving is fantastic all year round with 30 dives sites within 20 minutes of the resort and offers you the chance to spot unusual species – look out for eagle rays, dugongs, frogfish, scorpionfish, mandarin fish, pygmy seahorses and much more – we have the highest marine diversity in the world!

We are proud to be part of the North Sulawesi Watersports Association who try to protect the local ecosystems, and we are one of the founding members of the Bangka Conservation Fund, made up of resorts on and around Bangka, which fundraises to take care of our marine eco-systems and communities around Bangka.
