Do you spend most of your dive time looking or seeing? What's the difference?
There's a big difference between the act of "looking around" and the act of "seeing." Looking
around is a quick process involving a visual sweep of an environment -- taking in the big picture.
Seeing, on the other hand, takes time and concentrated focus. It involves studying details and applying
some problem-solving skills. And for divers of all experience levels, a sure-fire way of
injecting more excitement into every dive is learning to see more --
becoming more knowledgeable about marine life.
That's why we offer this marine life identification section.
Use this identification guide to learn the names and distinguishing characteristics of
some of the most common species you will see while spending a diving holiday at Wakatobi Dive Resort or on
the Pelagian Dive Yacht.

We are adding new species to the database on a regular basis. Our goal is to have descriptions and photos of
over 365 species of fish, sharks and rays that you are likely to encounter while diving at Wakatobi.
We offer a convenient "pocket sized" waterproof guide
in our boutique that you can purchase and carry with you in your BC pocket.
