Fukui Point is another fantastic dive in the Bunaken National Park that owes its diversity to the Indonesian Throughflow. It gets its name from the Japanese diver, a leading dive instructor in the area, who first mapped out the dive site nearly two decades ago. It is quite different to the other Bunaken dive sites, as it does not have a wall as such. It is shaped more as a slope that is intercepted by drops that are short but fairly steep.
Due to the slope, it is a great dive for beginner divers but divers of all levels will definitely have fun here. The seabed creates a natural station for fish cleaning and so the site is well known for moray eels, sailfin tangs, batfish, and when there is a current, huge groups of red-tooth triggerfish. The site also draws Napoleon wrasse, trevally, and snappers. Dogtooth tuna are irregular visitors but can sometimes be spotted. Reef sharks, bamboo sharks, and eagle rays can be seen as well.
Amongst the reef, you will find many hard coral and red barrel sponges. There are also a number of giant clams and a group of garden eels looking after the site.
