The liveaboard, the Pelagian, run by the Waktaboi Resort made multiple stops in the Wakatobi Marine Preserve. Beautiful diving and pristine sites, warm water and good vizibility. Easy diving, with only low to moderate currents. Great and very experienced dive guides. Wakatobi Marine Preserve in the Banda Sea is a beautiful spot with hundreds of creatures and lots of muck diving.
