Besides being a world class dive resort, Wakatobi treats snorkelers with the same importance as divers, which in itself is exceptional. We snorkeled 3 times a day with an enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide (Thanks again Andrea!). From being warmly greeted by Crispin at DPS to saying...More

My husband and I went to Wakatobi last April. It was beautiful there. We selected Wakatobi based on the remote, accessable reef, and the degree of thoughtfulness the resort seemed to be radiating. They are ecologically mindful of the reef, they...More

Dear Madeline, your question is quite strange for me as I live in Europe and we have a different system about tips. When you book your trip to wakatobi you pay an all inclusive plan: all meals and dive packages. Just beverages are excluded. When you check out, they provide you an envelope for tips that are equally distributed. The percentage is up to you. I hope this answers your question. 😁

Thank you for reaching out.
Yes, Wakatobi is very snorkel friendly. In addition to our amazing House Reef, which is just steps from your bungalow or villa, the reefs surrounding the resort are ideal for snorkelers, as coral formations at a majority of our sites rise to within a meter or less of the surface. Our boats go out to these sites, snorkelers are included on the boat excursions and have a snorkel guide, who provides a comprehensive briefing of the site and accompanies you in the water to assist, show you marine life, whatever are your wishes.
If you would like our guest relations team to answer additional questions and provide information, please inquire on our website - click on the link at the bottom titled: Enquiry and Booking. Of course, there is no obligation, we are here to help.
There are also some great snorkeling articles on our blog, which can also be accessed from our website. Click on Blog at the top right.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask.
We hope to see you at Wakatobi in the future!
