Wakatobi is a luxury dive resort in southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia. In a tranquil island setting far from crowds and cities, with no other divers for at least 100 miles. This is where I finally bought the macro lens and strobe I’d been dreaming about for more than a year and to learn how to use it I concentrated on textures – coral stays in one place so is easy to photograph!
Wakatobi has always been about something more than just a great diving experience. Their mission from day one was to establish a dive resort that gave divers a sense of well-being that they are helping contribute to an environmentally and culturally sound conservation program. So it’s not an accident that they established the Wakatobi Collaborative Reef Conservation Program, which is now one of the world’s largest privately-funded marine protected areas.
