Pelagian Liveaboard Diving

The itineraries include 7-10 day trips and scuba diving up to 4 dives a day. The ship can dive all forty dive sites near the resort, but it also goes out to another 4o dive sites that day trips just can't reach. You'll dive caves, reefs, walls, lagoons, seamounts, piers, and pinnacles. More over, you can do lots of isolated, undisturbed, and seldom visited muck dive sites. More importantly, this is where you will find blue ring octopus, bobtail squid, or flamboyant cuttlefish.  Pelagian Liveaboard visits sites such as Pasar Wajo Bay, Cheeky Beach, Magic Pier, Fish Market, and Blade. You'll' see porcelain crabs, pipefish, peacock mantis shrimp, pygmy seahorses, parrot fish, and a plethora of creatures that start with other letters. There are perhaps over 1500 fish species and another 600 corals species nearby. It's paradise for macro photographers.
