Wakatobi Dive Resort
The Wakatobi dive resort in southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is settled far from crowds and cities. Additionally, there are no other divers for at least 100 miles. Wakatobi has a pristine natural environment that seamlessly blends five-star amenities and civilized comforts. It is home to some of the world’s most pristine reefs and offers a high level of service, tranquillity and remoteness rarely found anywhere else.
The house reef and wall right in front of the resort provide lots to explore for days. Wakatobi is located in an area with the highest coral reef biodiversity in the world. The resort is located on Tomia Island in Wakatobi Marine National Park and has its own private Airstrip.
Aside from world-class diving, other activities include kitesurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, tours and yoga. The resort has 33 rooms, a dive center, WiFi, Airport and Airport shuttle. There is also a jetty bar, spa services, boutique, VIP services, diving “taxi-boat” service and Nitrox (fee).
While there at Wakatobi, we saw a multitude of marine life. There are Titan Scorpionfish, Orangutan Crabs, Raggy Scorpionfish, Groupers of several varieties and Yellowmargin Moray Eels. Additionally, we saw several types of Anenome and Clown Anemonefish. Nudibranchs are everywhere. Along with the wall dives, the sea fans are amazing and so healthy!
Wakatobi’s Live-Aboard “Pelagian”
Wakatobi provides several boats for boat diving. In addition to these, there is the live-aboard “Pelagian.” Pelagian ventures into remote and seldom-visited corners of the Tukang Besi archipelago. Guests enjoy cruises of discovery and adventure to distant reefs. It also goes to verdant island lagoons and muck diving sites.
Divers can find exotic and rare marine life on most dives. If you love muck diving, there are sites such as Cheeky Beach and Asphalt Pier. Underwater explorers can find sheer cliffs and caves at Tanjung Batutoro that offers something for both wide-angle and macro photographers. Schooling fish are not uncommon to see as well.
