Thalassa Dive Center with 37 years of Experience
The well-known PADI 5* Instructor Development Dive Center Thalassa, based in Manado, North Sulawesi was founded in 1996 and has been run since by Simone Gerritsen, a Dutch PADI Course Director and diver for 37 years.
Since April 2013, Thalassa has expanded its service offering accommodation as well, right on the border of Bunaken National Park.
The quality of our PADI dive courses is legendary. We don't take "short-cuts" and your safety and comfort is of major importance to us.
