Our second visit to this water wonderland. Wakatobi offers a unique dive experience for those interested in small marine life inhabiting a remarkably healthy reef. Thank you Wakatobi staff for creating the perfect dive holiday yet again, and for a wonderful New Year's Eve.
I would not go back....
The food was incredible and the attention to food allergies was the best.

Wanted a luxury dive vacation and got it! Had a few issues with a dive partner, but it was resolved and the remainder of the trip was excellent! Comfortable drift diving with lots of small creatures to see. Great night diving with ample lights on...More

Thank you for reaching out.
Yes, Wakatobi is very snorkel friendly. In addition to our amazing House Reef, which is just steps from your bungalow or villa, the reefs surrounding the resort are ideal for snorkelers, as coral formations at a majority of our sites rise to within a meter or less of the surface. Our boats go out to these sites, snorkelers are included on the boat excursions and have a snorkel guide, who provides a comprehensive briefing of the site and accompanies you in the water to assist, show you marine life, whatever are your wishes.
If you would like our guest relations team to answer additional questions and provide information, please inquire on our website - click on the link at the bottom titled: Enquiry and Booking. Of course, there is no obligation, we are here to help.
There are also some great snorkeling articles on our blog, which can also be accessed from our website. Click on Blog at the top right.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask.
We hope to see you at Wakatobi in the future!
