Diving doesn’t come any better than at Misool Eco Resort on Batbitim Island near Misool, an amazing location in Indonesia.
The resort opened in October 2008 after 2 years in the building using reclaimed materials and local building techniques. Prior to the Eco resort being built the island had previously been home to a shark finning operation and along with setting up an amazing resort for divers the investors of the project also negotiated a 400km square No Take zone around the island which has recently been increased to 1220 km square.
The first indication of how rich a diving location this was going to be was counting 19 juvenile sharks in the lagoon in one spot in the house lagoon, what a treat we were going to be in for!
On the first day with camera at the ready, we headed out to Whale rock and Kalick sites and sure enough I was amazed at the quality of the reefs, so many pristine hard and soft corals, definitely worth every minute of the long journey out there! The House reef was absolutely amazing too, so many different corals and fish in such a small area.
With over 3500 images to go through and edit I’ll get some others up as soon as possible
