Join Island Dreams' Ken Knezick on an ultimate scuba diving adventure


Wakatobi Resort is on the Tukang Besi archipelago, in southeastern Sulawesi, Indonesia, at the fringe of "civilization." But this remoteness is what makes for pristine diving. None other than Jacques Cousteau declared the Tukang Besi Islands to be "probably the finest diving site in the world." Even less prone to hyperbole, the well-traveled editor of Undercurrent Magazine, John Q. Trigger, named Wakatobi "the epicenter of marine biodiversity."

Island Dreams' lucky group participants agree, "At last a place that lives up to its claim! A diving location to suit the most ardent diver. Wakatobi is unlimited diving at its best. If you look hard enough you can find just about everything you desire. Awe inspiring reef life so pristine that it is hard to envision. I felt honored to be one of the first to dive this wonderland." David Hosley, Tampa, FL.

"Please join me as I conduct my 15th tour to this remote diver's paradise. Come and experience the underwater beauty of Wakatobi for yourself...and be treated like visiting royalty!" Ken Knezick - Island Dreams Travel.

** Passport Requirements: There are two critical issues regarding your passport for travel to Indonesia. First is that your passport must remain valid for at least six months following your planned departure from Indonesia. Second is that your passport must have a minimum of one blank Visa page remaining. If your passport is reaching full, please have additional pages added now. Failure to do so may result in your being denied access to the country!



Island Dreams' 2018 group will mark trip-leader Ken Knezick's 15th expedition to Wakatobi Resort - The Wakatobi folks assure us that Ken has made more visits to Wakatobi than any other guest, so you will be traveling with the bonafide expert! Over the years, Ken has gained a deep knowledge of this destination, and forged professional relationships and friendships with the staff and local community, that benefit you greatly when you travel with Island Dreams.

WHY WAKATOBI? - The highlights of diving Wakatobi are the incredibly diverse and colorful reefs with their vast range of marine life, and the opportunity for one to experience truly pristine dive spots. Wakatobi Resort's house reef and unlimited shore diving are nothing short of superb. We expect it to stay that way, for the owners of Wakatobi Resort take a strong environmental preservation stance, and the entire Tukang Besi regions is now officially a National Marine Reserve. There are three boat dives per day, plus unlimited shore diving.

BALI ADD-ON - To overcome your jetlag Balinese-style, you are invited to join Ken and Eva at Alam Shanti for three nights prior to our Wakatobi stay. Alam Shanti provides an unparalled lodging experience, and Bali and Ubud are simply awesome places to visit, explore, and enjoy. Island Dreams has years of Indonesia knowledge and experience to assist you with the best quality and value lodging, touring, spa services, and more. Simply phone or email us for assistance, or view details here: Alam Shanti Balinese Boutique Hotel
