It’s one of the best places to dive with whale sharks!
You will also spot four different species of sea turtles, frolic with dolphins and dugongs, and discover the wrecks of World War II warplanes. Definitely a spot worth checking out.
The Kwatisore Bay region has become somewhat of a local phenomenon for its ubiquitous whale sharks and the many spectacular opportunities there are to get up close to these gentle giants. No other region in Indonesia offers a chance to see such a vast number of whale sharks in one place, and in such crystal-clear waters.
For history buffs, the dive sites in Shinwa Maru offer intriguing discoveries of several World War II plane wrecks that met a watery fate during their hey-day, and superbly clear waters to dive and explore these historical relics. Some of the wrecks are within recreational diving limits, while others are located much deeper, and are better suited to experienced divers.
Though it does not feature the colossal sightings of whale sharks and plane wrecks, the dive site at Sungei Omiand offers much to be seen and explored in the beautifully intricate coral reef formations, and within the pure black volcanic sand of the seabed. There are plenty of interesting creatures to see like pygmy seahorses, sea snakes, frogfish, tiger prawns, cuttle fish and even the blue-ringed octopus.
