Known for destinations like Lembeh and Wakatobi, Sulawesi is home to fantastic muck diving as well as colorful coral reef systems. Dive this island by liveaboard to see all the best sites.
Sulawesi has a lot to offer. From Lembeh to Wakatobi, you’ll find great muck dives, healthy coral reefs, walls, pinnacles and even sites in the shadows of active volcanoes. Much of the marine life that makes Sulawesi famous is on the smaller side. You might spot rare nudibranchs, octopus, frogfish and pipefish, but you’ll also have the opportunity to see reef sharks, eagle rays and dugong if you’re lucky. Some areas in Sulawesi have good scuba diving infrastructure, but much of the island is difficult to travel around. For that reason, it’s best to dive Sulawesi from a liveaboard. Typically itineraries last 5 to 10 nights, and the best time to dive in Sulawesi is from March to October.
