Join acclaimed marine biologist and photographer Dr. Richard Smith in August of 2018 at Wakatobi Resort when he returns to explore and share his extensive knowledge of the exceptional marine life found on area reefs and walls, and on more distant sites reached from the Pelagian liveaboard. Having spent years completing his PhD research at Wakatobi, Richard is considered an expert in the diving and marine life found in this region.

As the world’s ecosystems change before our eyes, thankfully Wakatobi Dive Resort is remote enough, and protected with enough forethought, that its bounty remains. The bustling reefs with their fantastical tropical fishes, kaleidoscopic corals and  many special resident characters keep bringing myself and other divers back year after year.
