The weather is purported to be rainey, etc. in March. However, we found
March to be an ideal time to go.  The rainey season was ending and the
hills were a spectacular green! The little rain we encountered did nothing
to spoil our dives.
Wakatobi has been rumored to be run by "enviro-nazis" so I was
pleasantly surprised by the more pragamatic attitude of the Pelagian staff.
 (Don't misunderstand . . . trashing the environment was not allowed, but
they weren't overbearing about it).
Cabins 4 and 6 are VERY SMALL.  Cabins 3 and 5 have room for 3 comfortably.
 Cabin 2 is VERY Spacious, as is cabin 1. The electric generator is up
front, so cabin 2 is quietest.
It's hard to find any fault with this well run operation.
Fresh cookies or bread and hot towels awaited us after every dive.
Bring ear drops. I missed two days of diving from an external ear
The great staff may be willing to launder your clothes.
