At Black Marlin we are striving to always improve the environmental impact that the resort has on the island. To date we have introduced the following programs to ensure that your stay in Sulawesi has the minimum impact on the area, thus preserving it for future generations. With the use of solar energy from 2014, we are going even greener! Click the link for pictures of our latest ECO Efforts.

  • Recycling of all bottles, plastic etc
  • Refills for mineral water at the Ocean Cafe
  • Low energy light fittings throughout the resort
  • Rainwater collection and recycling
  • Use of 4stroke engines (more efficient, quieter and cleaner)
  • Coral rehabilitation programmes (EcoReef, BioRock etc)
  • Reef Clean ups; Rubbish / Crown of Thorns starfish etc.
  • Divesite Mooring Lines Initiative to save our reefs

Please let us know of any other programmes that we could add that will help us improve our efforts further.

Crispin Gibbs

Crispin Gibbs first came to the Togean Islands in 1996 and discovered why it had been kept such a secret; pristine coral reefs, crystal clear tropical water, inviting for scuba diving and countless breath takingly beautiful, untouched desert islands, with palm fringed white sandy beaches; who could resist?

Returning each year finally at the start of 1999 his dream was realised with the opening of the Black Marlin Dive Center, a professional western run dive center offering quality service for diving in a relaxed and fun environment. Crispin runs the dive center with his wife Lala.


We are actively involved in the conservation of the Togian Islands and establishing the Marine National Park. Also campaigning for World Heritage Site status (at present a nominee). Please help us campaign for this and preserve forever a very unique corner of the world.

Please send your emails etc to: asking for the Marine Park and Togians to be protected from any future logging or harmful practices. Help add your voice to our petition to protect this unique corner of Sulawesi in Indonesia.

Many thanks,

Crispin Gibbs, Black Marlin
