Coral Reef Diving

Located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, the Alor Archipelago has one of the most well preserved coral reef systems in Indonesia. Dynamite and cyanide fishermen from other islands were long ago warded off by the local people who saw the value in preserving their home reefs. In addition, cold water upwellings from the southern seas push through the Strait after each new and full moon keeping our water temperature regulated and fresh. This has left us with some of the most colorful, beautiful, diverse and densely covered coral reef sites that we see today.

Due to seasonal weather conditions, the best time to visit us to view Alor’s coral reefs is between mid-March and mid-December for both ideal surface and underwater conditions. In season, underwater visibility can be absolutely outstanding ranging from 15 meters / 50 feet in our shoulder season to 40 meters / 132 feet in the height of our dry season. When the sun is shining (and that is often) the colors and clarity of the water can look dramatically beautiful to you as an observer and some great opportunities for wide angle if you are a photographer or videographer.

Coral Reef Snorkeling- No scuba tanks required -

In addition to scuba diving most of our coral reef sites are suitable – and actually highly recommended – for snorkelers. We even have sites dedicated to snorkelers only. For snorkelers visiting the resort we offer a basic service to join our coral reef morning dive boats to explore independently or hire a private snorkeling guide when available, or a full service when booking in to the resort as a half or full charter either directly or as a custom itinerary trip through one of our partners.
