The Gulf of Tomini is a gulf near the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is bounded on its north and west sides by the Minahassa Peninsula and on the south side by the East Peninsula, Sulawesi.

The central part of Sulawesi is ruggedly mountainous, such that the island’s peninsulas have traditionally been remote from each other, with better connections by sea than by road. Here, clouds hang to the peaks of the mountain ranges.
