Scuba Diving Trips in Indonesia
It’s said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. With over 13,000 islands and the richest biodiversity in the world, breathless beauty for all awaits in Indonesia.
Indonesia features a wider variety of aquatic organisms than any other diving destination in the world: over 600 types of coral and 3,000 species of fish call this earthly Garden of Eden home. Visitors have the opportunity to see these animals in all types of diving experiences, including unique liveaboard excursions. Indonesian liveaboards are world-renowned for their liners that immerse you in nature from the comfort of a live-in, all-inclusive boat.
Indonesia’s four islands – Salawati, Batanta, Waigeo, and Misool – contain the most coveted diving spectacles in the world. Raja Ampat Misool, in particular, is known for the famed “Magic Mountain,” where, in an extremely rare occurrence, both small and large reef mantas report for parasite cleanings. Virtually untouched by human hands, more world-class drop-off points are teeming with unusual creatures: manta rays, frogfish, blue-ringed octopuses, sea turtles, and ghost pipefish. Whether night, muck, reef or drift scuba diving, travelers can venture back to the same spot multiple times and uncover something extraordinary every time. These unique species can potentially be seen all at once, which only adds to the mysteries of the sea that true divers find peace in exploring. Indonesia is in the middle of the ‘Coral Triangle’ of diversity that extends from Australia to the Philippines and across to Borneo and into the South Pacific. This country is at the core of the ocean’s heart, where the marine variety suggests life in the sea began.
Perhaps the best part is, there are still sites waiting to be discovered. Will you be a part of the exploration? To learn more about our scuba diving trips in Indonesia, contact us online!
