Some of the best scuba diving in the world is found in the Asia-Pacific region. I was fortunate to dive in the Wakatobi achipelago of Indonesia, located in South Eastern Indonesia, south of Sulawesi and between the Sulawesi and Banda seas. The name Wakatobi is formed from the first two letters of the islands that form the archipelago: Wangiwangi, Kaledupa, Tomea and Binongko. The reefs there are the most healthy I have seen with an outstanding diversity of coral and fish species. Obviously the ingredients to support a rich marine fauna are present, such as nutrients, currents, depths, temperature. My diving and taking pictures there was most rewarding and I can't wait to get back!
