Getting to North Sulawesi

Manado airport, the international gateway to North Sulawesi is called Sam Ratulangi airport (code MDC) and is situated an approximate 90 minute drive from our resort at Dive into Lembeh.

MDC airport is reachable by direct flight from Singapore, Jakarta, Bali, Makassar and Sorong (the gateway to Raja Ampat).

Our recommended route is to use Singapore Airlines ( and it’s regional carrier Silk Air. Singapore Airlines offers an extra 10 kg for diving equipment and this courtesy is also extended on Silk Air. Silk Air flys 4 times a week to MDC (Monday, wednesday, friday and saturday).

Flights arriving from Europe and the USA arrive early enough in Singapore to allow you to connect direct with the Silk Air flight. Singapore Air offers great stopover deals in Singapore if you would like to break up your trip. Check out the link here:
