Within the Togean diving and trekking routes (you can also visit:
https://es.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=19115899)
we can make this other suggestion. For this you can hire in the same islands (it is not necessary to have made any reservation from the internet or agency) a boat to bring us to the nearby islands of Uma-Uma. Like all the dive track or snorkel waypoint approach and the points where we do dives, it is clear that we can not use water GPS, it is more, I put more waypoint to include more photos on the route. The waypoints, therefore, do not have any positioning utility. You can see perfectly the immersion areas because the track of the route turns. That's because the GPS stays on the boat while we're diving. Almost all of the 46 kilometers of the route are by boat.
We were able to verify what the advertising of the Togean Islands itself says: "Difficult to arrive and difficult to leave". The route, although marked as diving, is actually Snorkel. What I have indicated is a road near where we stayed because obviously in the water it is not possible to mark any track. The photos are taken close to the piers, but anywhere on this small coast we can see a great amount and diversity of fauna and corals even without using bottles. Even being a bad camera we can appreciate the beauty of this environment.
The coastal city of Ampana is usually the starting point for touring the Togean Islands in Sulawesi. We decided to take the trip to these paradisiacal Togean islands of difficult access. We took a ferry here that took us to Wakai, and from there to the island of Kadidiri. Once in Kadidiri there is no problem of hiring daily departures to dive with a bottle, with snorkeling ... You can also practice snorkeling without hiring from the same jetty.
To decide whether or not to go to the Togean, we must take into account that they are far from everything and it takes at least 2 days to arrive, another 2 to leave and must be scheduled according to the days of the ship. So it's a destination that requires at least a week.

TIPS: Schedule the days of arrival and departure of the islands. There are no boats every day (see schedules at the transport entrance) and you can lose time in Ampana and Gorontalo waiting.
Better if you have reservations in high season (July and August), but as it is complicated by communication with the Togean, they can always temporarily accommodate you while you are releasing a bungalow.
Although you can pay by card is preferable to take money, communications via wifi are not always good or nonexistent.
There are no pharmacies either.
If you have to spend a few hours in Wakai waiting for the boat, go to the waterfall ("air terjun"), about 4 km north, passing the market and following the street. Just ask the friendly population. Good pool to bathe.

The route described here, as well as the GPS tracks are indicative. It is the responsibility of whoever carries it out, to take the appropriate security measures for the itinerary, which will depend on the weather conditions, as well as the technical and physical preparation of the person who carries it out. It is very clear that everything indicated (track and comments) is purely informative and without any other kind of spirit, exempting the author from any responsibility, before any mishap that could suffer who by will or induced induced the route.
