Coral reef diving in Alor is nothing short of delightful since reefs of Pantar Strait are some of the most conserved marine systems in Indonesia. Apart from the prolific coral growth and staggering color palette of corals, sponges and anemones, diving in Alor is also well known for great variety of reef fishes and rich macro fauna. Frogfish, leaf scorpionfish, pigmy sea horses, eels, see snakes and great assortment of nudibranches are just a few to mention.
Visibility ranges from 15m/50ft close to a wet season and up to incredible 40m/130ft during dry season from June-October. In addition Alor is a place for remarkable surprises by passing pelagic – even whales! We offer no guaranties but hammerhead shark, reef sharks, thresher shark and Mola Mola (Sunfish) are spotted frequently. The dives are planned daily and decided upon the tide table in order to ensure the best possible experience.
Muck diving in Alor is building a worldwide reputation as a top muck diving destination. The name comes from the muddy or “mucky” sediment on the seabed often mixed with volcanic black sand and coral rubble. It offers perfect camouflage environment for unusual critters like Rhinopias, frogfish, leaf scorpionfish, devil fish, hairy frog fish, sea moth, snake eel, zebra crab, coleman shrimp, solar powered nudibranch, harlequin pipefish, velvet and robust pipefish, different seahorses and many more.
Several muck dive sites are located in Kalabahi Bay and few more on Pura and Pantar Island.
