Indonesia is an epicentre of biodiversity, hosting a greater variety of marine life than anywhere else on earth. With over 17,508 islands and situated in the heart of the coral triangle, Indonesia is a diver’s paradise. From tiny pygmy seahorses and macro critters to magnificent manta rays and the mighty Mola, there’s plenty to see. Enjoy exhilarating drift and reef diving, fantastic night diving, unique muck diving and breathtaking steep walls. Tec divers probe the deep trenches and wreck divers love the many World War II relics. Indonesia caters for all budgets and holiday tastes with possibilities as diverse and abundant as the marine life.
With thousands of unique dive spots across Indonesia, you can find many magnificent sea creatures during a vacation to this tropical paradise. Divers often see angelfish, surgeons, lionfish, and trumpetfish, as well as barracudas and sharks of many kinds – including black tip, white tip, and potentially even a tiger shark.
Sea turtles, snakes, octopus and manta rays are other frequently encountered inhabitants of these dive spots – and the luckiest visitors may even swim with dolphins, orcas, or the world’s largest mammal – the great blue whale. Whether you do one dive or 100, scuba diving the oceans of Indonesia will prove to be a memorable experience.
