Diving Sulawesi Indonesia
The shape of the Sulawesi land mass itself, with its unusual arm like projections, reminds many people of an octopus – already conjuring up images of the underwater world!
The giant island of Sulawesi lies in the heart of the “Coral Triangle” which includes the Philippines, the small island chain of Sunda, the North of Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. This area is world renowned for its incredible marine biodiversity both in terms of coral and fish species. Scientists theorize that the geographical position of this area – where the Pacific and Indian Oceans meet holds the key to its wealth of marine life. Over 75% of all of the worlds hard coral species can be found here, over 3,000 species of fish occupy the reefs and 6 out of 7 sea turtle species come here to breed – and the list of such statistics goes on.
Diving Sulawesi is unlike diving anywhere else in the world; unique creatures and critters are found here, dive sites range from slopes to walls and even caves, the reefs are bursting with life and are waiting for you to explore them. On land Sulawesi is equally as fascinating with towering volcanoes, fertile rainforests and pristine tropical islands and beaches. The people of Sulawesi are friendly and welcoming to visitors and one area of particular cultural interest is the Toraja area in the mountains of South Sulawesi where local traditions have remained unchanged for thousands of years. This magical land promises you a stunning holiday both on land and underwater.
