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 16th tour to this remote diver's paradise. Come and experience the underwater beauty of Wakatobi for yourself...and be treated like visiting royalty when you travel with Island Dreams!" Ken Knezick - Island Dreams Travel.

Island Dreams' 2023 group will mark trip-leader Ken Knezick's 16th 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 - Should you wish to overcome your jetlag Balinese-style, 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.
