Join us on this extraordinary Wakatobi snorkeling safari. The Wakatobi National Park, a UNESCO Marine Biosphere Reserve, was named by combining the first letters of names of four main islands in the chain.
Situated at the geographical centre of the Coral Triangle, the most marine bio-diverse environment in the world, the waters in this archipelago are among the most lively in the world.
Wakatobi is recognized as having the highest number of coral and fish species found anywhere on the planet and has one of the most impressive house reefs for any resort located in the world.
