Comments It took us 30 years and over 700 dives to find the perfect dive resort. Wakatobi was obviously designed by a diver for divers. 70 minute dives, hot chocolate waiting for you back on the boat with a warmed towel for your face, 4 divers per dive master, great presentation, Great food, darling huts and near perfect diving.

Even the rain didn't stop us from three great dives a day. Few large critters, but enough small stuff you find no where else but Indonesia that one doesn't miss not seeing sharks.
