Alor Divers is a new dive resort situated on Pantar Island which was just
in the process of 'soft opening' when we arrived there in September 2006.
You can stay comfortably in one of the six new and spacious bungalows on
the beach. All bungalows have hot & cold showers, western style toilets
and big verandas. The dive shop is well organized and professionally
maintained. A big restaurant with lounge and small library invites guests
to relax in the shade. Very good French-Slowenian-Indonesian-Cuisine.
The 140 HP-powered dive boat reaches all dive sites in Pantar Strait in 5
to 30 minutes. All other land based dive operations in Alor have to pass
the 15 km long Kalabahi Bay before they reach the dive spots. Alor Divers
are much closer to the main dive spots and the accomodation is better than
in town where we usually had to stay when we dived Alor.
The house reef is a steep slope with wall sections in between. Good
coverage of soft and hard coral, eagle rays and critters. In August there
may be surge caused by the east wind. Very good visibility, great macro
opportunities but not as much big fish we had seen during our 4 previous
My opinion: Best land based dive operation in Alor.
