Now you can experience the outer reaches . . .

Pelagian cruises through the islands of Tomia, Kaledupa, Binongko, Hoga, Wanci and Buton -- offering both reefs and muck diving in one cruise.

While some of the coral gardens may not be fully as pristine as those near Wakatobi Dive Resort they will offer you very varied topography and varied vistas. Add to that mesmerizing muck diving (not reefs but sandy - mucky if you wish - substrata covered with stunning critters in every conceivable color).

Whether you like towering pinnacles, steep walls, coral gardens, drift dives, caverns, or caves, the islands in the Wakatobi region offer them all. While Pelagian's cruising route is dependent on seasonal and dive conditions, our skilled staff develop itineraries based on guests' diving and marine-life preferences. Here it's all about helping you create the dive holiday of your dreams!

While Pelagian supports the comprehensive and very successful marine conservation program at Wakatobi Dive Resort the full cruising route that she covers is however not (yet) protected and so you'll see various levels of reef health. While some of the coral gardens may not be fully as pristine as those right near Wakatobi Dive Resort they still offer plenty of reef life and very varied topography. Add to that mesmerizing muck diving (not reefs but sandy - mucky if you wish - substrata covered with stunning critters in every conceivable color). If you wish to contribute so that we can extend the protected area, please contact us or let one of our team members now or during your visit. Thank you.
