Wakatobi Hoga Diving
A little slice of heaven
Hoga Island, Wakatobi National Park is located in the heart of the Coral Triangle, one of the most bio-diverse regions of the Indo-Pacific region and even of the world. This makes for a unique diving experience where you will see incredibly colourful corals teeming with marine life from large trevallies and schools of barracuda to small but stunning nudibranchs and cleaner shrimps.

In those 22 years she has done a lot for the local population and she is taken up by a very special group of people, the sea nomads.
