With steep underwater drop-offs and both oceanic and local currents converging, this is a location where interactions with big stuff such as mantas and larger sharks are a distinct possibility. On every dive expect to see reef sharks, turtles and rays cruising the dramatic moray eel-infested underwater topography. In addition, the beach dive in front of the dive shop is gaining a deserved reputation for critter diving, with ghost pipefish, waspfish and even mimic octopus being regularly found. Boat dives are single dives and the house reef can be dived anytime...
If you are bored with rigid schedules, busy dive boats and crowded resorts... Pulau Weh is the place for you. Located an hour north of Banda Aceh on the Northern tip of Sumatra, this special location has an end-of-the-world feel to it. Indeed, 20 minutes drive past your resort you'll find Kilometre Zero, the westernmost point of Indonesia from which the government measures distances.
On the day of arrival you will be shown your bungalow and given an orientation of the dive shop and of the diving or courses you will be doing.
