Why Diving in Indonesia Is More Fun?

blog Comments Off on Why Diving in Indonesia Is More Fun?

When you are diving, you want to experience fantastic sights and marine life on your dive; that is part of the joy of diving. After all, besides getting in some quality physical exercise and testing your skills, you want to explore the underwater world of the place you’re diving in. Certainly, you want a place that is interesting and exciting to see and explore, not a place that is just the same old, boring, expected sights and marine life. You also want a site that has good weather regularly. It is because of these reasons that diving in Indonesia is much more fun than other locations.

Indonesia has long been considered as one of the best locations on Earth for diving. There are several reasons why this is the case. Indonesia has one of the longest coastlines in the entire world, as it stretches from the Indian Ocean in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the West. Indonesia is part of the Coral Triangle of the world, containing about 20% of the world’s coral reefs, about 600 different coral species. It also has a great deal of fish biodiversity, as there are over 3000 fish species here. There are many others species of marine life here as well, including Manta rays, blacktip and whitetip sharks, seahorses, tuna, and more. In addition, Indonesia’s weather is ideal for diving between April to December, and it’s certainly possible to even dive during the months of January to March as well, thus giving the diving enthusiast many opportunities to dive throughout the year.

In addition, Indonesia offers many different diving sites throughout, giving the diver much less chance of becoming bored or thinking he/she is falling into a predictable routine. Each of these sites has its own unique attractions and sights as well. For instance, Raja Ampat is known by many scientists to be the “richest place for marine life on Earth.” There have been many new species discovered here over the past few years. This makes it ideal for divers who like to explore underwater, and especially those who like to do underwater photography, as they get many great shots here for their photo albums and for posting on their social media sites.

The Togian Islands provides another largely unexplored area in Indonesia. This group of 56 islands is located just north of Sulawesi. All three major reef formations can be found here: Atoll, barrier reef, and fringing reef. In addition, over 300 species of coral can be found near these islands, with many of them still being classified.

The Komodo Islands also add a lot of intrigue to Indonesia. Not only do you have a great deal of marine species ranging from sharks to reef fish, but you also have the famous Komodo Dragon, the largest living lizard on Earth. The 17,508 islands located here also has a great deal of pinnacles and deep walls, making this an ideal location for a great diving adventure.

Another great scuba diving experience can be had at the Bunaken Islands on Sulawesi’s northern tip. It has one of the finest sea parks on Earth, containing many of Indonesia’s reef fish species. In addition, plenty of steep walls of coral are located here, along with many small caves that are largely unexplored. Add in the presence of sharks, Manta rays, and Napoleon Wrasse, and you have the great makings of a diving adventure.


As you can see, Indonesia offers plenty of variety in terms of marine life, coral species, and sights; this is why many consider Indonesia to be the best diving location on Earth. With all of the variety located here, it’s virtually impossible to get bored diving here. With many diving locations in easy reach, you are sure to have a great deal of fun exploring the underwater world in Indonesia.
