Diving Details...
Unlimited diving - dive as much or as little as you like! The Wakatobi scuba menu includes a beach dive before breakfast, a 2-tank boat trip before lunch, afternoon taxi boat dives on the "world's best house reef" (or a third boat dive) and night time beach or boat dives before and after dinner.

The Wakatobi sites include vibrant coral reefs, rich sea-grasses, dramatic slopes and walls, lush sea mounts and caverns. There are excellent opportunities for drift diving and critter encounters.

Boat trips include coffee, tea and drinking water and a divemasters. Nitrox is also available.

Wakatobi lives the belief that protecting the reefs is an integral part of running a sustainable resort operation. Scuba divers coming to enjoy the reefs, propel our reef conservation efforts around the Wakatobi Archipelago.

The Wakatobi Collaborative Reef Conservation Programme aligns the interests of the locals and the diving community. Local fishing communities obtain a fair share of the income generated by dive tourism in exchange for adopting more sustainable practices, such as leaving large stretches of reef completely untouched, and the surrounding villages receive financial incentives to improve their infrastructure. Other contributions go towards education and strengthening local support for the Wakatobi marine park.

Here agreements are reached among peers without the need to preach or apply pressure. The local communities become defenders of these precious underwater properties, a valued source of cash flow for them. You, the holiday diver, can visit Wakatobi and enjoy many miles of the finest reefs on the planet with a good conscience.

Dive Safety, Resort Security...
The nearest re-compression chamber is in Denpasar in Bali, 2.5 hours flight south west from Wakatobi. Treatment in Bali is not covered so scuba divers should have their own dive holiday insurance policy - see our insurance programme for a competitive quotation.

Wakatobi Dive Resort has oxygen on site, and there is an established evacuation procedure with an air rescue company. This is covered by Wakatobi's own insurance policy.

1 divemaster is provided for every 6 divers. There is a local hospital on the neighbouring island for common injuries.

The property features on-site security and a wide range alert network. Wakatobi is one of the most remote outposts in the world so is not known for loitering hoodlums on the island!
