Pelagian: Wakatobi & Beyond

Published October 21, 2013 in DIVE YACHT, Diving, Publications

“The perfect dive vacation. We did five days on Pelagian and five days at the resort. Pelagian is the best liveaboard we have experienced in our 20 years of diving. Our cabin was equal if not better than a five star hotel room.”  – Ann Donahue, October 2013

Many guests complement their Wakatobi experience with a cruise aboard Pelagian to dive some of the most remote and raved-about sites in Indonesia.

Having spent time at Wakatobi dive resort to conduct his research on the pygmy seahorse, Dr. Richard Smith finally realized a long time dream of a cruise aboard Pelagian in order to experience a wider span of Wakatobi’s ecosystems. The diving from Pelagian can range from exciting drifts, pinnacles and seamounts to muck diving excursions in the shallows. Richard shares his experience in the article Pelagian: Wakatobi and beyond.

Joining Pelagian has never been easier: with more frequent flights from Bali and itineraries of five, six or seven days, it is perfect if time is limited, or you want to extend your trip to the resort for a little longer. My trip kicked off with a relaxing start in Bali, where it is always nice to spend a day or two getting over jetlag. The Wakatobi concierge team arranged everything for me, from accommodation to activities, having already personally ushered me through passport control and customs on arrival in Indonesia.
