WAKATOBI – Close to Home


Discovering the underwater attractions that lie just off Wakatobi’s beach.

by Steve Miller, Pro Photographer and Wakatobi Guest Experience Consultant

It’s morning, and the dive boats of Wakatobi are just about to head out for the first trip of the day. I’m still on shore at the dive center, halfway through a leak check on my camera housing. But there’s no rush because today, I won’t be catching a boat. The housing passes the leak test, and as soon as I lift it from the freshwater tank, one of the dive center staff appears and immediately takes it from my arms. Smiling, he asks “will you be needing a taxi boat drop off today?” Looking out to where the turquoise waters of the shallows transition to a deep blue, I reply “no, I think we’ll just swim along the jetty to the wall.” Read more

Adding The Glow

Combining fluorescent and luminance light sources adds a new dimension to underwater imaging.

At Wakatobi Resort, diving doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. In fact, many underwater photographers find nighttime to be prime time for creating unique images. Among the primary attractions of night diving are the colors. At first, this statement may seem counter intuitive, as the reef is cloaked in darkness. Sunlight may reveal the broader vistas of the reef, but as any underwater photographer can tell you, it does not render the full spectrum of colors, as red, orange and yellow wavelengths are lost even at relatively shallow depths.
