Unlimited diving on pristine, protected coral reefs

It’s all at your doorstep

Nowhere else do you have such ease of access to miles of pristine reefs with diverse topography, life and highlights. In other locations you collect the good dive sites together over large areas with perhaps long and arduous boat journeys in between and might not even get close to what Wakatobi offers out there right at the doorstep.

Our ‘signature dish’: shore diving the House Reef

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 up current to extended parts of the House Reef to explore or enjoy a beautiful drift back to the jetty.

Night diving – any night

Night diving at Wakatobi is fantastic!. One or two night dives (depending on length of the trip and weather) will be offered from the boats. You can dive any night on the house reef in front of the resort (unguided buddy teams). Simply gear up in the diver preparation area and walk-in off the beach.

Night dives should be finished at the latest by 10.00 p.m. but special arrangements can be made to dive at other hours.

A plethora of sites to dive by boat

We have more than 40 sites that we regularly dive, all accessible by our day boats. Boat rides range from 10 minutes up to a maximum of an hour for a few of the furthest sites. (find out more)

Your stay supports our protected conservation zone

The entire Wakatobi region has been turned into a sustainable protected marine park. The local village and surrounding communities have enthusiastically adopted 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 with and in respect of the coral reef ecosystem.

“Even though we are ‘just’ snorkelers, we were treated the same as divers, which made us feel appreciated, wanted and welcome. Our guide was great with a special eye for unusual critters. The restaurant staffs were all excellent. We like the phrase about themselves on their nametags – helped us to get to know the people. Thank you to the front desk attendant. She was a delight to deal with… “Even though we are ‘just’ snorkelers, we were treated the same as divers, which made us feel appreciated, wanted and welcome.”
