La P’ite Kepa is not operating scuba-diving anymore. 25 years after having built the first diving resort in Alor, Cedric’s has hung up his wetsuit! But some neighbouring dive operators will be happy to pick-up you in Kepa for diving trips, sometimes with our boat and local guides.
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 reachable in 2 to 40 minutes from Kepa. We organize minimum 2 dives per day but a 3d dive (afternoon or night) can be arranged as well depending on current conditions and participants. In addition, shore dives are also possible for qualified divers at tank cost only (5€ ). The dive sites are chosen according to our … 19 years experience (already?!) of the area, to offer you the best conditions to see objects in a safe way. Drift and static dives are possible. Our capacity is from 10 to 12 divers (depending on the month), so Cedric and his team, 2 to 4 dive instructors/guides, will accompany you in small groups (3-4 divers/guide) to show you the jewels of Alor marine life!
The new boat is a light wooden speed boat, spacious enough to put your gear on, walk around, make your tea/coffee or sun-bath on the roof-deck during your surface interval. There are toilets for your convenience, and some shelves to arrange your photography equipments.
