With its underwater Volcano Banua Wuhu

Banua Wuhu Volcano, Mahangetang is located in the Sangihe Islands, Indonesia. Four evenly spaced volcanoes (~ 50 km) make up the Sangihe Islands. Banua Wuhu is located 45 km south of Awu volcano, on Sangihe Island to the North.
It is a submarine volcano which rises 400 m above the ocean floor. The volcano forms a temporary island during eruptions, and subsequently erodes below sea level. The adjacent island of Mahengetang is part of the same volcanic edifice. Dissected volcanic centers lie to the northeast (Kahakitang) and north (Kalama) of Banua Wuhu.

Guestbook for Mahangetang

Hey guys, wonderful photos you have here, it seems like quite the trip! Sorry to be a bother, but I was wondering if you had any idea whether it's possible to visit the Banua Wuhu volcano in just one day from Sangir or if it's simply not possible without dedicating a lot of time to getting there and back? It looks like you guys took two separate boats just to get there!
