Pastel Reef

Wakatobi, Indonesia

Similar to Inka’s in the array of life, the colours are diverse yet subdued to pastel hues. At depth, gardens of neon yellow wire corals spiral out into surrealistic shapes. When the current is running and the corals open, it’s a vastly beautiful dive.

Roma

Wakatobi, Indonesia

Roma is as fine as any dive site in the world. Large schools of fusiliers, Pyramid Butterfly fish, Sergeant Majors, hound fish and Red tooth Triggerfish swirl around you in an endless dance. A compact pinnacle in the centre of the reef, crammed with colour and life, this is a complete dive in itself.
