Diving in Alor

Alor is an hidden paradise for marine biodiversity, with exceptional coral reefs, unique anemones gardens and remarkable muck-diving spots.

The variety of underwater geography is wide: some outstanding walls, rock slides, valleys, seamounts, pinnacles, bay… Surrounded by clear water, the visibility can reach more than 40 meters, with an average temperature of 28°C (with peaks down to 25°… 20° in specific spots and conditions).

If a few dive sites are renown for big fish (big eyes jack, dog tooth tunas, giant groupers, Napoleon wrasse, eagle rays or occasional hammerheads and mola-mola …), the real richness of Alor is the amazing biodiversity, including fish, invertebrates, anemonas, hard/soft corals, and the variety of critters, which make it famous for « macro » lovers.

The dive sites are chosen according to our fifteen years experience of the current conditions to offer you the best conditions to see objects in a safe way. Drift and static dives are possible. Cedric’s team, 1 to 3 dive guides (3/5 divers per group) will show you the most exciting jewels of Alor!
