Generally accepted as one of the world’s best countries for marine life, Indonesia has a tremendous diversity in marine life. It lies in the heart of the ‘Coral Triangle’ of Australia, the Philippines and Borne/South Pacific.
Covering around 20% of the world’s coral reefs, over 3,000 different species of fish and 600 coral species, deep water trenches, volcanic sea mounts, World War II wrecks, and an enormous variety of macro life, Indonesia scuba diving is both excellent and, not unimportant, not expensive.
Count on meeting with big pelagics around the cool waters of Komodo, cruise over unspoiled fields of coral in Raja Ampat, admiring the enormous number of fish in the Banda Islands, to photographing the outrageous critters of Sulawesi, Indonesia diving cruises are unsurpassable.
Diving is said to be best on liveaboards to Komodo and beyond to West Papua. Beyond Komodo lies some of the most exciting scuba diving around the Banda Islands and Raja Ampat. Here it is not so crowded and only serious pleasure-seeking divers make the effort to come here, which means unspoiled, untouched sceneries.
