Dive Indonesia – Explore Indonesia Through Us
Dear AMD-B friends and followers
Greetings from AquaMarine Diving – Bali.
The #1 question received by AMD-B’s ‘Beyond Bali’ section: “What is the best dive destination in Indonesia?”.
A more accurate question would be “What is the most suitable Indonesian dive destination for me?” because, of course, the answer depends on what you want to see and do. Maybe you also want topside activities; how much time you have available; your budget; your willingness to spend time travelling; fixed dates, and so forth.
Perhaps a two-destination trip would better meet your goals…
Take Wakatobi for example – one of the world’s largest privately protected marine reserves. You could choose Wakatobi Dive Resort or Pelagian liveaboard so, which do you prefer: Land-based or the convenience of a liveaboard? Or both! Either way, you’ll have 5 star amenities, and see amazing diversity of marinelife.
To reach Wakatobi, you fly return from/to Bali. So, as Bali has so much to offer, why not add-on some diving in Bali for before or after your Wakatobi visit? If you are travelling July-November, Mola-Mola (Ocean sunfish) season is on its peak. Bali has year-round resident Manta rays as well as world-class muck diving, the 120m USAT Liberty Shipwreck, and more.
All over Indonesia – not only Raja Ampat and Lembeh – new, undocumented species are often discovered. The Forgotten Island in eastern Indonesia are phenomenal, but can only be dived during two short periods each year. Komodo National park with Komodo dragons. Ambon with the chance to see Psychedelic frogfish. The list goes on!
Contact our Indonesian travel specialists directly and start shaping up your next year dive travel plans.
They look forward to hearing from you soon.
