In the Tukang Besi - Wakatobi Archipelago, the Wakatobi Dive Resort on Onemobaa Island has an excellent house reef for snorkeling. The house reef is actually made up of six different sites, one accessible directly off the beach in front of the resort that includes a seagrass bed and healthy reef top right of the beach. It's only 80 yards from the shoreline to the drop-off. With well protected schooling fishes and the jetty full of resident fish, the snorkelers find here plenty of attractions without the need for taking a boat. Highlights include a great variety of fishes, invertebrates, macro subjects, beautiful soft corals, gorgonians, tunicates, whips, sponges, overhangs-all totalling a spectacular rainbow of colour. Frequently, there are strong and changing currents.

The resort also provides access to dive boats that head out to dozens of other snorkeling sites.

Tip - While snorkeling off Wakatobi, make sure to use a diver down flag since the boaters tend to drive fast and be unaware of snorkelers in the water.

Overall, Wakatobi is the 5th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 8 snorkeling dives in Indonesia.
