Morotai Dive Site in


Located in the north part of Halmahera, Morotai is also one of the northernmost islands of Indonesia, facing the Pacific Ocean. Over the years, Morotai has emerged as one of Indonesia’s hot spot tourist destinations, and it is no surprise that diving in this area will also become popular.

Over 40 dive sites have been mapped out in Morotai, with most of them frequently visited by reef sharks such as blacktip, whitetip, and greytip. Not only that, schools of fusiliers, surgeonfish, barracudas, groupers, snappers, Napolean wrasse, and tuna can be seen darting across the water.

The most impressive thing about this little island is that during World War II, Morotai became a military base for the Allied Forces, especially during The Battle of Morotai, which lasted almost a year. Some of the war artifacts during this period lie peacefully on the ocean floor, covered by corals and the home to different species of critters, making Morotai the perfect spot for wreck diving.

Be careful when diving in this area, as the wrecks have become brittle after being underwater for decades. It is important always to follow the instructions of your dive masters.
