Join the For Women Only dive team on a special expedition to luxurious Wakatobi Resort in Indonesia!
This is a very special week as our 2018 women-only dive trip has been timed to coincide with LGBT groups from Undersea Expeditions and Northern California Rainbow Divers visiting this same week. To dive a world-class destination where our LGBT friends and allies make up the majority of the resort's guests is a rare opportunity! Our For Women Only group will enjoy our own boat and divemasters, along with our own welcome party and mealtime seating together to bond as a group and talk about each day's amazing diving. Our fun and friendly group of women divers will love exploring some of the healthiest reefs in the world, including unlimited diving on the world's best house reef.
After a 2.5 hour charter flight from magical Bali direct to the resort's private airstrip, the authentic typical architecture of the bungalows surprises with Western comforts including air conditioning and limited bandwidth wi-fi. All meals are included and the Balinese-trained chefs are world-class. Enjoy unlimited outstanding shore diving on the house reef and three boat dives a day.
Indonesia is the center of marine biodiversity, and the protected reefs surrounding Wakatobi are incredibly healthy, with comfortable water around 80 F and excellent visibility. Summer is the peak season for diving here. This is your opportunity to see and photograph cuttlefish, many varieties of lionfish in their native habitat (including Fu Manchu lionfish right on the house reef), pygmy seahorses, ribbon eels and other marine life unique to the Indo-Pacific region.
