Add, I'v got E-mail from them dated 28/Nov 2001 as following "We set out to build our own airstrip, and eventually, in July 2001, started bringing guests in by privte aircharter. To fly direct from 'Island of the Gods' - Bali to the remote Wakatobi Dive Resort."

Diving there I did dives around P.Torandono (The resort is located here), P.Tomia and P.Binongko, also, some small islands. There are reef slopes and walls, atolls and wrecks.
One of my favorite dive site was "Fish wall" at northeast side of P.Binongko.
Literally a great number of fish! Impossible to see the wall! Considerably it might be my best one.
