It is known for being one of the most popular diving spots in the world. Dense coral reefs, and a huge range of sea creatures, coupled with a good level of conservation awareness from the locals living close to this island, lead to it offering some fantastic diving and there are over 40 Tomia Dive Sites to explore. Its vast reef area supported with complex underwater topography (slopes, flat, drop-off, atoll and underwater cave) combined with white-sandy bottom crafts a new spectrum of oceanic life.

Hoga Island is a beautiful small island surrounded by beautiful coral reefs in the heart of the Wakatobi, and is situated close to the second main island in the chain; Kaledupa. The home reef on Hoga Island is a stones throw away from the long white sandy beach and makes for great diving and snorkeling alike.

There is a total of 22 dive sites around Hoga, all of which can be reached by boat within half an hour.

Here the coral is outstanding, healthy, very colourful, and in many places pristine. You will see breathtaking displays of hard corals, black corals, colourful soft corals, sea whips, gorgonian sea fans, and giant sponges.

We regularly see a variety of nudibranches, barracudas, pygmy sea horses, ghost pipe fish, crocodile fish, batfish, scorpion fish, and much much more.

Most dive sites are walls and overhangs, but there are also pinnacles, ridges, a blue bowl, a channel, coral gardens, sandy slopes and a sea grass bed to explore.
