In the past the Pelagian Liveaboard was a exploration yacht, used for cruising remote waters and designed to be self sufficient in any circumstance. When the good people at Wakatobi Dive Resort took her over they gave her a sleek refit, added some luxurious touches and make her an ideal platform for diving the extensive reef system of Wakatobi.
Playing host to just 10 guests as maximum you’re invited to enjoy the spacious outdoor decks, various lounges and dining areas with your own level of privacy in mind. The cabins feature luxurious bathrooms and stylish decor, large comfy beds and of course air conditioning with private controls. The pre dive area provides ample space for donning equipment and those who use cameras or bring plenty of kit will be well looked after throughout. Wakatobi is a vast region, made up of 4 major island groups and many atolls and reef systems, the Pelagian offers the complete experience of diving in this spectacular part of the world.
The Pelagian Liveaboard offers the chance to explore further territories of the Wakatobi island group, of which there are 4 distinctive regions – Wangi Wangi, Kadelupa, Tomia and Binongko (the name is derived from the first 2 letters of each territory comprising Wa Ka To Bi). Whilst the reefs close to Wakatobi Dive Resort are largely wall dives you’ll get to experience pinnacles, plateaus and sea mounts from Pelagian not to mention a number of black sand muck dives. The variety of dive sites on offer makes Pelagian an attractive offer, especially when the prospect of combining your stay at the sister resort is possible. There’s also better chances of encounters with pelagics from the liveaboard and it’s surely the best opportunity of seeing the best of what Wakatobi has to offer.
