Miguel’s Diving Gorontalo
Miguel’s Diving revolves around ecological sustainability and community development. To sail and dive Gorontalo waters requires experience of the area’s micro environments. Therefore, they trained Gorontalo fishermen as dive staff so the guests could benefit from their local knowledge. Their extensive knowledge of Gorontalo waters is now at your service. This dive center offers a variety of marine environments for scuba diving including pristine coral walls, caverns, muck, multiple pinnacles, shallow coral gardens and wrecks.
Divers will find the star-rated Grand Q Hotel the best among Gorontalo hotels. Formerly, Quality Hotel was its name prior to its recent sale. The new owners are building new rooms, a swimming pool, fitness center and spa. The new rooms and facilities expectedly to be available in March 2017.
As with most Gorontalo hotels, various types of rooms are available. Most scuba divers request Superior rooms. These have double or twin beds, a/c, hot water shower, international cable TV and minibar. In the basement is the hotel’s pub, which features live music. None of the other Gorontalo hotels have a pub. Also, this hotel has a wine bar. Grand Q offers an excellent breakfast buffet in the hotel’s dining area. Free WIFI is available.
Visitors can easily navigate Gorontalo city and its numerous local restaurants. Fresh seafood is inexpensive and delicious. For those longing for something western, Magic Pan Pizzeria opened several years ago in a beautifully renovated Dutch-area house. Hypermart Supermarket offers some imported groceries. Guests of Miguel’s Diving are given a tourist map of Gorontalo City which includes locations of Gorontalo hotels and restaurants that are recommended by the dive center. Lunch is provided (on board or on the beach) when your package includes 3 dives per day.
