No where else do you have such an ease of access to miles and miles of pristine reefs with diverse topography, life and highlights - in other locations you collect the good dive sites together over large areas with long and arduous boat journeys in between and might not even get close to what Wakatobi offers out there right at the doorstep.

Our house reef is world-famous. Some guests never go on a boat dive because the reef and wall right in front of our resort provides enough territory and diversity to keep them exploring for several days. There is no need to swim long distances. We even offer "taxi-boat" services to transport you to extended parts of the house reef.

Abundant and Diverse Marine Life

Biodiversity is a measure of the variety of species that can be found in an ecosystem. Wakatobi is located in an area that encompasses the highest coral reef biodiversity in the world.

What does that mean for the average diver?

It simply means that at Wakatobi will have the greatest opportunity to see the greatest variety and diversity of marine life. While diving at Wakatobi, you'll not only see beautiful vistas or pristine coral reefs, but also abundant colorful reef fish and rare and unusual cryptic "critters". New undocumented species are being discovered at Wakatobi.

There are other areas of the world where you can see larger schools of fish, bigger animals and experience more adrenaline-filled underwater "rides", but for shear reef scenery and marine life variety, you won't be disappointed with a diving holiday at Wakatobi.

Pristine and Protected

The entire Wakatobi region has been turned into a sustainable protected marine park. The local village and surrounding communities have "bought in" to the conservation plan and as a result, illegal fishing, reef walking and other activities detrimental to the coral reef have been halted. Part of your payment for staying and diving at Wakatobi goes back to the community to sustain and support this new way of living. Living in harmony and in respect of the coral reef ecosystem.
