Diving Indonesia Part One – Alami Alor Dive Resort (Watch Video)

Published

on

Black Manta Photography’s twin centre trip to Indonesia’s Alor and Komodo is one of the highlights of the Spring issue of Dive Travel Adventures. In the first in a series of three accompanying videos, Richard and Hayley give us a sneak peek into underwater life at the Alami Alor Dive Resort…

Beautiful and upcoming Alor offers untouched reefs with a biodiversity that surpasses most other dive spots. Located on the south islands of Indonesia, just a stones throw from Australia, we found ourselves at the Alami Alor Dive Resort in what can only be described as heaven on earth!

A small boutique resort that offers home comforts gives you the feeling that you’re visiting a friend in paradise, but it’s the diving that sets itself apart from other parts of Indonesia that we have experienced.

If macro critters, reefs aplenty with hard and soft corals, sharks and sightings of sunfish are your thing, then you need be heading here as a priority! The marine life is in abundance, and no two dives are the same – reefs, caverns, jetties and muck diving make Alor possibly our new favourite place to visit!

However, one word of advice… Take plenty of memory cards for your camera as you’re going to need them!!!
