BEST DIVING IN INDONESIA
Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world and their coral reefs house the biggest marine biodiversity of the planet!
Indonesia's marine biodiversity
Indonesia is the diver's dream, its territory includes the largest part of the "Triangle of Biodiversity". The variety of landscapes both above and below the sea surface is unmatched in any other country on the planet. Diving in the 3 million km2 of the Indonesian sea, you can find practically everything. Many divers, even the experienced ones, have identified the species that were still missing from their photographic collections. Add to this that something new and sensational comes out every year from the still unexplored borders of this immense archipelago.
We can say without fear of being shown otherwise that Indonesia is the most complete country that a diver can visit: ocean walls, underwater volcanoes, canyons, pinnacles and submerged caves are the usual scenes of diving in Indonesia. Wide angle, macro photography, wall diving, drift diving, shipwrecks, bugs, mantas... here you will find everything and more to spend a vacation among different and exuberant tropical islands, on idyllic resorts or yachts, besides an incredible cultural and natural diversity that characterizes this archipelago nation.
Where and when to dive in Indonesia
The immense extension of the archipelago allows you to have different climates and microclimates in various periods of the year, with the possibility of always enjoying, in one or more regions of the country, a pleasant climate, clear seas and ideal conditions for diving.
Diving seasons in Indonesia can be divided as follows:
From October to May it is high season for Raja Ampat, Triton Bay and Halmahera for which the period between June and September is also fine, when the only problem is the wind blowing in the most exposed parts of the region. In this period there are clearer waters and less rain. Raja Ampat is extraordinary throughout the year!
Two short seasons April-May and October-November to visit The Banda Sea, The Ring of Fire and Forgotten Islands. These destinations can only be visited through dive boat, in the transition periods between the monsoons, when the sea is calm and excellent visibility. October/November is the season for hammerhead sharks, which can sometimes be spotted in numerous schools and at shallow depths.
Due to excellent protection Cenderawasih Bay offers, it is an optimal destination for divers eager of whale sharks all year round.
Indonesia offers multiple opportunities for diving trips, on a cruise or in a resort, our agency can even develop a safari diving for you that includes several destinations in Indonesia or several dive sites in one region. Such as Bali, an island famous for culture and fun, but highly underestimated for what can be found underneath the surface.
