Is there a "best" time for diving?

The best time is from April to November. Best months are from June to October. That does not mean that it never rains at this time, but according to statistics (and experience), this is the best time because the showers do not affect the diving operation. In December, the rainy season begins. Mostly the bad weather does not last long and there are often enough opportunities to dive. In strong wind, we can not go out on our side because of rough seas, unfortunately. In such weather conditions, we take the car to the other side of North Sulawesi, rent a boat and dive in the Strait of Lembeh.
