Wakatobi Resort is a world class remote diving location with virtually all
of the amenities you'll want for a first class diving vacation.  The corals
are in excellent condition and there are scads of small critters which the
dive guides will readily point out to you, some so small that they require
a magnifying glass to see.  Cuttlefish and beautiful anemones are abundant.
 However, if you want to see pelagics, you'll need to book an accompanying
trip on the Pelagian dive yacht that will take you out to deeper water away
from the island reefs which have only small fish and critters.  The ocean
side accommodations are worth the price difference.  I was continually
impressed with the helpfulness, warmth, and concern for a positive diving
and vacationing experience from the staff.
