Unlimited diving on pristine, protected coral reefs

BOAT DIVING OR SHORE DIVING, IT’S ALL AT YOUR DOORSTEP

Nowhere else do you have such ease of access to miles of pristine reefs with diverse topography and marine life. Forget about long and arduous boat journeys, at Wakatobi, it’s all here to enjoy stress free.

A PLETHORA OF SITES TO DIVE BY BOAT

We have more than 40 sites to dive, and all are accessible by our day boats. Boat rides range from 10 minutes up to just a maximum of an hour for only a few of the furthest sites. See our dive sites map here

SHORE DIVING ON OUR RENOWNED HOUSE REEF

Our house reef is world-famous and has been named the world’s best. Some guests even choose to forgo boat dives because the seagrass beds, reef, and wall right in front of the resort provide enough territory and diversity for days of exploration. And there is no need to swim long distances. We even offer a taxi-boat service to transport divers up current to extended parts of the House Reef for an easy and enjoyable drift back to the jetty.

FLUO DIVING

Experience a new dimension in diving so exclusive that more people have seen Earth from space than have seen corals in this new light! Fish suddenly speak and coral communicates through fluorescence. Read more

NIGHT DIVING

Night diving at Wakatobi is fantastic! One or two night dives (depending on the length of the trip and weather) will be offered from the day boats. And you can dive any night on the house reef (unguided buddy teams). Simply gear up at the dive center and walk in off the beach.

The house reef is monitored by our team until 10 pm.

YOUR STAY SUPPORTS OUR CONSERVATION PROGRAMS

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. A portion of our proceeds from your visit goes back to the community to sustain and support the protection of the reefs and living in harmony with and in respect of the coral reef ecosystem.
