Time Anambas:

Diving in Anambas

Home - Sitemap



If you're a diver with a interest in exploring dive sites that have hardly, or not at all been dived until today, then you may want to take a look at diving in Anambas.

The Anambas islands have been recognized by the yachtie community, amongst others, as the world last untouched paradise island chain.

Situated mid-point between Peninsula Malaysia to the west and Borneo to the east, the Anambas archipelago falls - somewhat paradoxically - under the sovereignty of Indonesia. But by the time you've left this almost "Lost World" region, you'll be aware of a lot more such curiosities. For one thing, in many ways, it really feels like you've gone back into time here.

One of our islands' appeals is the blissful isolation from the rest of the world. It's one of the reasons this neck of the woods has retained its authenticity, albeit that discerning curious tourists, both from Southeast Asia and further afield, have begun trickling in. But by and large, this breathtaking territory remains practically unknown to the tourism industry at large.

The same applies to the diving community; most have yet to hear of Anambas, although some LOb operators have realized the huge potential of the area and have ventured in from Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. However, these tend to dive the outskirts of the Anambas area.

Meanwhile, the really exciting and undiscovered dive spots remain elusive until today. That said, Anambas now has several dive outfits operating locally. Equipment is grade-A quality and personnel is fully certified.
