  • A combination of unspoiled, colorful reefs and abundant marine life makes Alor an absolutely world class diving destination. Whether you are into muck, macro, big fish or beautiful coral, Alor caters for every need. As a result of volcanic activities the topography varies from outstanding walls, rock slides, valleys, seamounts and pinnacles. Some dive sites are renowned for big fish (schools of big eye jackfish, dog tooth tuna, sharks, giant groupers, Napoleon wrasse, eagle rays and occasionally mola-mola …).
  • The diversity of invertebrates, anemones, hard and soft corals is truly impressive. There are some muck sites famous for critters. The colorful slopes around Pura Island are home to the cute mandarin fish, frogfish, blue ribbon eel, scorpion leaf fish, harlequin ghost pipefish, pygmy sea horses, etc… It is common to encounter pilot-whales, hundreds of dolphins and seasonally (from Oct to Dec) even whales, passing to the Pacific Ocean.

Nowadays more than a thousand inhabit the island and about half that number that live on nearby Rinca Island.

The north side offers clear warm waters flowing from the Flores and Banda seas. Underwater is stunning with vibrant colors, diverse exotic fish life, exceptionally healthy corals, reefs crammed with invertebrates and packed with reef fish. Current-swept deep cool water sea mounts, walls and pinnacles are patrolled by sharks, tuna and other big fish. The south plankton rich waters (making visibility ‘slightly reduced) host eagle rays, manta rays, sunfish and abundant fish life as well as macro life and critters such as leaf fish, frogfish, sea apples, pygmy seahorses, a variety of ghost pipefish, many different nudibranches, and much more.
