Wakatobi Kid's Club
We consider Wakatobi to be a family friendly dive resort. Though dive holidays can be tricky with non-diving
children, your child of any age will be cared for and entertained here at Wakatobi so you can fully enjoy
the dive vacation of a lifetime.
For children ages 0 to 4 years we have caring, intuitive, well trained local ladies who will work to your
schedule to maintain a healthy routine for your child. Before you arrive at the resort you will be consulted
about you and your child's specific needs by our onsite childcare facilitator. Whether you are wanting to do
at least 3 dives daily and enjoy your meals while baby is cared for elsewhere or planning to take it easy,
dive occasionally and spend as much time as possible with your child, or somewhere in between, we (you,
the onsite childcare facilitator and your allocated Indonesian nanny) can create a specific childcare plan
tailored to your ideal vision of this dive vacation of a lifetime.
*Though our Nannies are very good at what they do, we do have to mention that there are some limitations in
their English language abilities. However, the childcare facilitator will always be available to clarify any
communication issues that may arise between you and your child's nanny.
Of course child care for the age range of 5 to 12 years can also be arranged outside of Kids Club hours.
Say if you wish to have a romantic dinner for two or do a night dive, a personalized childcare plan will
be established after discussing your needs with the onsite childcare facilitator. Special children's meals
and mealtimes can also be organized.

"We tried to send our kids to Kids Clubs in several resorts and hotels before. In Wakatobi for the first
time my kids actually asked to go back to the kids club of a resort after the first day ..."
Christian Wipf, July 2009
The great thing about the Kids Club in Wakatobi is that the schedule is seamlessly integrated with the dive
schedule and the parents can really go about the diving relaxed and undisturbed. They kids (Joshua, 7 and
Natalie, 4) could hardly wait to get back to the activities after the meals. "
Roni Matin, Aug 2009
Believe it or not, I found it easier to be in Wakatobi with my kids than at home ( Max 3 and Karl 1). The 3 year
old had so much fun going about his own business in the Kids Club and the 1 year old was so well look after
by the babysitters, I sometimes forgot about them for a half a day at a time."
Hwee Keng Teng, August 2009
Kids Club begins at 7.30am until 12.30pm (time for parents to enjoy the two scheduled morning dives) and
recommences after lunch at 2pm until 5pm (time for parents to enjoy the third scheduled dive or maybe an
afternoon house reef dive). Snacks are provided in the middle of each session and as the ratio of Kids Club
Conductor to child is a maximum of 1:3, conductors are able to keep your child hydrated and recognize when
the group is in need of rest time and indoor activities. Depending on the number of children at the resort
during your stay Kids Club Activities can also be personalized, say if you wanted your child to join the
dive boat for a snorkel or wanted your child to go on a Land Tour this can be arranged.

||Diving Wakatobi for Kids
Diving for uncertified children in Wakatobi is limited to Discover Scuba and Bubblemaker introductory dives, by prior arrangement. We do not have a pool large enough to complete full Junior Open Water Dive training. Previously certified junior open water divers, diving with their caregiver(s) and guided by a pre-booked private dive guide are more than welcome to join the three daily scheduled dives from our well appointed dive boats. So for those not-yet junior divers, supervised snorkeling on the magnificent house reef is the next best thing!
Kids Club Fun!
