    Overview

    This wonderful addition to WT's unique snorkeling program is an exploration of the reefs of Wakatobi National Park, just a short hop from Bali and set in the heart of Indonesia's celebrated Asia-Pacific Coral Triangle, which boasts the highest coral reef biodiversity in the world. Legendary explorer and conservationist Jacques Cousteau is said to have called the Wakatobi Archipelago an “underwater nirvana,” and our yacht-based adventure is designed to get you to the best sites in Wakatobi, each one offering a wide variety of distinct habitats—from shallow coral gardens to sheer wall faces encrusted with sea fans and deep overhangs sheltering daisy corals, tube sponges, and even sea turtles. If you're a serious snorkeler, this is a “must-do”—you're in for an incredible adventure! An eight-guest motor yacht carries us in comfort through this spectacular hidden paradise.

      From Bali, take a scenic private charter directly to Wakatobi National Park and board our accommodation, a 35-meter motor yacht that hosts eight guests. Enjoy a snorkeling refresher at the House Reef, with its stunning drop-off and overhangs, then cruise to Binongko Island. The next day, we're introduced to Wakatobi's underwater realm as we snorkel at Fish Wall, the reef at Kampung Populia, and Cavern Wall, all loaded with a plethora of fish, sea fans, and even turtles. Wakatobi National Park is nicely protected by the surrounding reefs and islands and there is no coral bleaching. Underwater visibility averages about 100 feet.
      Snorkel the hard and soft leather-coral at the shallow reef of Pintu Barat, and at Likuan, explore a steep wall with plenty of overhangs and soft coral. At Orange Wall, we find many black corals, some halimeda patches, and a variety of thriving reef fish. Fish Market Pinnacle brings us an array of topography, and at Hoga Island, we explore a coral slope on the east side, a wall on the west side, and in between, a sandy slope with rock outcrops that host massive numbers of crinoids and coral. The steep wall and sandy slopes of Neptune Garden are full of blue-spotted ribbon-tail rays, sponges, and sea fans. After final snorkeling adventures at Kaledupa Wall and Waitii Corner, depart by private charter for Bali on Day 8, or join our Wakatobi Resort Extension.

      This trip is rated Level 3, Moderate, according to our trip grading system. You need to be comfortable snorkeling in a variety of conditions, including drift snorkels and occasionally against strong currents.

      Average Day
      • 4-6 hours snorkeling
      • 2-3 hours sailing
      Review Trip Level Details
      In Wakatobi, the climate is tropical but drier than in other parts of Indonesia, and the location is nicely protected by the surrounding reefs and islands. Generally speaking, there are two seasons: easterly winds from June to October, and westerly winds between December and April. The air temperature is warm to hot, ranging between 79°F and 86°F. Humidity is about 75% to 85%. Water temperature in September is between 78°F and 81°F, and from November to March ranges between 82°F to 85°F. That water temperature range is ideal for coral growth and there is currently no coral bleaching. Underwater visibility averages about 100 feet. There are no rivers or lakes bringing sediments, therefore visibility is not affected by rain.
      The boat has an experienced on-board chef and team. Breakfast and lunch are usually served on the aft deck, and in between snorkeling sessions, hot drinks and snacks are available. Dinner is served in the salon. There are a la carte menus for lunch and dinner, a combination of Indonesian specialties and Western favorites. A selection of wines and spirits are available as well as soft drinks and juices.
      During the snorkel excursions, we will take a small dinghy or skiff to each site. It will always stay with the group so that you can return to the boat at any time.

      The Wakatobi journey takes place in an extremely remote and uninhabited archipelago in the Pacific. In the case of serious illness or injury, medical attention and swift evacuation are not available. Once we sail from the Wakatobi Resort, we are far away from towns and medical facilities. In the case of serious illness or injury, we will make every effort to reach medical facilities as soon as possible, but be aware that it may take the boat days to return to the Wakatobi Resort. If you have health or medical issues of concern, please discuss them with your physician before considering this trip.

      We strongly recommend you bring your own good quality, well-fitted equipment with you, including mask, snorkel, and fins. Try out your gear in a swimming pool before you go to make sure that it works for you and is comfortable.

      Trip Levels

      With more than 200 different adventures to choose from, we want to help you find the trip that’s right for you. Our Trip Level system ranks each trip in two ways: a number rating from 1 to 6 according to the activity, and general travel rigors. 1 is the easiest and 6+ the most difficult—see descriptions below for explanations of each number. A plus (+) sign means the trip is a bit more strenuous than other trips of that level. The detailed explanation of each trip—below the bar with the number rating—is perhaps more important, specifying activities, altitudes, hiking, and travel conditions. The Detailed Itinerary, available by download or mail, gives further information. Our Area Managers can also answer questions and guide you to the trip that best suits your interests.

      Level 1 – Easiest

      Non-camping journeys, optional walks, little elevation gain or loss.

      Level 2 – Easy to Moderate

      Hotel nights and/or safari-style camping, hikes of two to four hours on some days. Other physical activities are sometimes included, such as optional sea kayaking.

       

      Level 3 – Moderate

      Half- to full-day hikes (3-6 hours) over rolling countryside on most days, occasional steep trails. Many of our hotel-based walking tours are in this category, as are our snorkeling adventures.

      Level 4 – Moderate to Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-6 hours), mountainous terrain, significant elevation gains and losses (hiking up or down as much as 3,000 feet) on many days. Altitudes no greater than about 10,000 feet.

       

      Level 5 – Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (4-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Trips with hiking at average altitudes of 10,000 to 12,000 feet are in this category.

      Level 6 – Very Strenuous

      Full-day hikes (5-8 hours), mountainous, steep terrain (hiking up or down as much as 3,500 feet) on many days. Most hikes take place at altitudes above 10,000 feet, with some days ascending as high as 18,000 feet.

The snorkeling site is accessible directly off the beach in front of the resort and around the Jetty Bar. It features a healthy reef top, a seagrass bed, and a stunning drop-off, which is just 20 meters from shoreline. Highlights include a great variety of fish, invertebrates, beautiful soft corals, gorgonians, tunicates, whips, sponges, and overhangs&mdash;all totaling a spectacular rainbow of color.

expatriate family operated. As a young child, holidays were to the coast to go snorkeling (she says she learned to swim before she could walk!). A move with her family to Fiji helped her realize her dream of learning to dive and she fell in love with the ocean and all its frontiers. She worked as a volunteer on a marine project in Roatan, and qualified to be a scuba diving instructor. After teaching and guiding for four years, she moved to Indonesia to become a guide at the Wakatobi Dive Resort, which only increased her desire to head to all the amazing and remote locations Indonesia has to offer. In 2008 she helped start up a new liveaboard operation as the Cruise Director and held that job for 12 years, living a nomadic boat lifestyle and enjoying wonderful travels throughout the remote Indonesian Archipelago. Wendy has worked with a number of marine biologists, been involved in looking for new dive areas and fish species, and has now completed more than 13,000 dives. &ldquo;Indonesia is an incredible place,&rdquo; she says, &ldquo;with both its people and nature, you can never really get enough of it.&rdquo; Wendy is fully conversant in Indonesian and is passionate about conservation of the world&apos;s resources."},{"GuideID":851160,"First_Name":"Andrea","Last_Name":"Duggan","BioShort":"","BioLong":"Born and raised in&nbsp;Southampton in the UK, Andrea Duggan has been a passionate world traveler and scuba diving instructor since 1998, when she left the UK for Southeast Asia and fell in love with the Asia Pacific marine life. It was&nbsp;during her first trip to Indonesia&apos;s Komodo National Park that she knew she wanted to work underwater in this beautiful country. This is also where she found her passion for freediving. Since 2009, Indonesia has been her home, residing on liveaboard boats, working, planning, and leading trips throughout the entire Indonesian archipelago. Andrea has traveled to every continent and lived in a handful of different countries including Spain, India, Australia, and Thailand. She speaks several different languages and is fluent in both Spanish and Indonesian. She is passionate about the ocean and loves to share her knowledge and enthusiasm about Indonesia&apos;s biodiversity. When not guiding, Andrea enjoys practicing and teaching yoga and sharing her knowledge of Ayurvedic and healing diets as a nutrition coach. \"Indonesia is a country that never ceases to amaze me. There is always something new to discover whether it is above or below the water.\""}],"guestreviews":[{"GuestNames":"Brian M.","GuestLocation":"Sacramento, CA","GuestReview":"I had a fantastic time.

Be sure to check the expiration date. Your passport must be valid for six months after your date of entry into Indonesia. In addition, we recommend your passport have at least two completely blank visa pages for every country you will be visiting. It is very important that the blank pages say &#8220;Visas&#8221; at the top. The last few pages of your passport, which say &#8220;Amendments and Endorsements,&#8221; and the final page of your passport, which may not have a page number, are not considered to be legitimate visa pages. The service of adding pages for visas was discontinued as of January 1, 2016. You can request a new passport through <a href=\"http:\/\/travel.state.gov\/passport\">US Passport Services Office<\/a> or use a visa service agency, which can take care of your passport renewal and expedite the process, if needed. We recommend <a href=\"http:\/\/www.passportvisasexpress.com\/?affId=2120\">Passport Visas Express<\/a>. Be sure to allow sufficient time to acquire this before your trip. <br><br>It is very important to carry photocopies of your passport's photo page and any acquired visa pages for your trip (if applicable) in case your passport is lost or as an additional piece of identification, as well as two extra passport photos.","Custom_Visas_and_Entry_Notes":"US citizens can obtain a Visa on Arrival (VOA) in Indonesia for $35 USD before reaching immigration for stays of less than 30 days. If you are a citizen of any country other than the US or plan to stay for longer than 30 days, check with a local consulate for entry requirements.","Custom_Money":"Indonesia's currency is the rupiah (IDR), abbreviated Rp. It is very important that you bring your spending money in US cash, not travelers checks. Travelers checks can be difficult and time-consuming to cash. US dollars are the second currency of Indonesia and are accepted in a pinch. Note that pre-2006 US bills or ripped, wrinkled, or stained US bills will often be rejected. ATMs are common in the larger cities in Indonesia and are generally reliable. <br><br>You will need to budget spending money for gratuities, for any meals not included in the trip itinerary, airport taxes, and for personal items such as snacks, phone calls, etc. <br><br>Taxes are collected when you pass through any Indonesian airport. Current airport taxes are IDR 200,000 (approx. US$16) for international flights and IDR 75,000 (approx. US$6) for most domestic flights. Prices are subject to change. <br><br>To use an ATM internationally, you must have a four-digit PIN. If you plan to use your credit cards, inform your credit card company before your departure that you will be using the card abroad.","Custom_Tipping":"Tipping is completely discretionary, but over the years, clients have asked us for tipping guidelines to reward guides for outstanding service. A range of reference would be $120-$160 USD per trip member for the WT Trip Leader; $80-$120 for the local dive guides; and a pooled tip of $40-$80 for the boat crew. The tips for the local dive guides and boat crew can be paid to the Wakatobi staff directly, as they pool all tips and divide it equally among all staff. The tip for the WT Trip Leader should be paid directly to the leader.","Custom_Food":"Please reach out to us directly to discuss any dietary restrictions or concerns you may have. We can easily make arrangements for most diets, but please keep in mind that certain cultural differences or logistical limitations can make it difficult or at times impossible to accommodate all requests. With this in mind, please inform us at least eight weeks before your trip if you have a special diet, and any food allergies in particular, so we can do our best to meet your needs.","Custom_Communications":"<strong>Telephone<\/strong><br>The international dialing code for Indonesia is 62.

All shots should be entered on your International Health Card (yellow card), which is provided by the facility giving the shots. Keep it with your passport while traveling. This provides an important personal record for you to refer to when making future travel plans. We recommend you discuss the following with your physician:<br><strong><br>Polio<\/strong><br>People who have received the primary series of at least three doses of polio vaccine are considered fully immunized.

All travelers are urged to take antimalarial medications, available only by prescription. Please discuss antimalarial medication with your doctor, who will explain various antimalarials and their side effects and recommend a regimen for you. In addition to medication, a further precaution against malaria is to wear long sleeves and long pants at dusk. Thin clothing should be sprayed with insect repellent, especially around the elbows and ankles. Use repellent containing DEET. <br><br>If, after returning from your trip, you have a persistent fever with chills, muscle aches, and headache, report to your doctor the possibility of exposure to malaria. <br><br>For further malaria information, consult your doctor or the CDC Malaria Hotline (<a href=\"https:\/\/www.cdc.gov\/malaria\/travelers\/\">cdc.gov\/malaria\/travelers<\/a>) or by phone at 888-232-3228.","Custom_Staying_Healthy":"You can reduce your risk of getting sick on the trip by washing your hands often and not touching your face with unwashed hands. If you arrive on the trip with a cold or feel the symptoms of a cold, avoid close contact with others and move away from people before coughing or sneezing. The CDC recommends coughing or sneezing into a tissue or into the crook of your elbow or upper sleeve, not your hands.","Custom_Getting_In_Shape":"For maximum enjoyment of the trip, you must be in good health and able to snorkel for multiple hours at a time. We highly recommend that you have previous snorkeling experience.","Custom_Medical_Care":"The Wakatobi journey takes place in an extremely remote and uninhabited archipelago in the Pacific.

For higher quality images and the ability to use long lenses for closer wildlife pictures, a DSLR camera is well worthwhile, though heavier. Most digital cameras and phones have good video options, but you may want to consider a GoPro for a lightweight, waterproof option. Always practice ahead of time with new equipment and bring your manual with you. You may want to consider renting camera equipment for your trip from places such as <a href=\"https:\/\/www.borrowlenses.com\/\">borrowlenses.com<\/a>. This is an especially good idea for renting large zoom lenses that you may need for just one trip. Adding their extra insurance fee to cover expensive equipment is recommended. <br><strong><br>Camera Accessories<\/strong><br>We recommend bringing at least two large capacity memory cards or a small digital storage unit (or tablet) to back up your photos, freeing space on your memory cards. Don't forget to bring a battery charger and a backup battery so one is always charged and ready to use. For trips where you may be away from power sources for multiple days, consider looking into a solar-powered battery charger or buying additional backup batteries, and check that you have the appropriate adapter for the electrical outlets in your destination.<br><strong><br>Sharing Your Images<\/strong><br>We would love for you to share photos from your trip, and with your permission, may even use your photos in our marketing materials or on our photo blog. We request that you send us a small sample of your best images. Please email your photos to wtphotoblog@gmail.com or tag us @WildernessTravel on social media.<br><strong><br>Photography Etiquette<\/strong><br>When taking pictures of local people, be aware of cultural considerations. Approaching people with a warm smile and using polite gestures or simple phrases to ask permission to photograph them usually works well. It is always recommended to engage people in conversation before asking to photograph them, but if people do not wish to have their photo taken, please honor their requests. We urge travelers to avoid giving money in exchange for photo opportunities, which makes it harder for future travelers to have a meaningful personal interaction with local people. Please always heed your Trip Leader's guidelines for what is appropriate.
