Dive in the most bio-diverse reef in the world

Located at the centre of the coral triangle, Atauro Island offers a spot for incredible diving. 

From dramatic drop offs, gentle slopes to pinnacles, Atauro Island provides the best topography for diving.

The reefs are covered with healthy coral garden, variety of fish species and a combination of both small and big stuff. It is also located at the highway where the migration of whales occur.

The reef on Atauro Island is known as the most bio-diverse reef in the world!

Every year between September and November, hundreds of Blue Whales, sperm whales and other whales are migrating from the Banda sea to the Indian ocean along the North coast of Timor-Leste.

During this time, encounters with the Whales are regular and swimming and snorkeling with them is possible. We organize daily trips where we get to swim with the whales

The rest of the year, encounters with Pilot whales, melon headed whales and other dolphins are possible.
