Few areas of the world have healthy coral reefs. Indionesia does not disappoint! We were able to snorkel daily off of our boat and what a treat to see such underwater beauty!

What a stunning reef, lots to see. Did the trip on Mermaide 2, and this dive location was on the agenda. We were lucky and didn't have the really strong currents. But don't let that put you off.

One of the most amazing diving spot. The snorkeling points we enjoyed the most were : Takar Makassar > Batu Bolong> Siaba > Sabayor > Kanawa- Pink beach (We didn't go West of Komodo, nor to Gili Lawa because of a restriction (Fire in progress))
