Comments We did a week on the Pelagian and a week at the Resort. Both weeks exceeded our expectations! The staff was attentive and anxious to please. The Diving was amazing and the Dive Guide was very experienced and could spot the smallest of creatures. The food was 5 star both on the live aboard and at the resort and the accommodations we surprisingly luxurious at both the resort and the live aboard.

We are already planning our next trip back to Wakatobi!
