Dive Rote Indonesia

Experience one of the new untouched frontiers when you dive Rote Indonesia . Rote is home to a diverse array of dive sites all around its expansive coastline, combined with a handful of offshore islands, all bursting with new spots to explore. Despite the prevailing south-west swell in dry season, there is always somewhere to go within an hour’s boat ride from Nemberala, and clients can add diving to the fantastic selection of activities that already exist on this tropical island jewel.

As well as being the ideal way for surfers to occupy those small swell or flat days, it is also an excellent spot to develop your diving credentials. Anugerah Surf and Dive Resort offers the only dive school on the island, with a full range of PADI dive courses, equipment and facilities, including dive boats, a training pool and PADI certified instructors. Whether you are a complete beginner or a certified diver wishing to build on your existing skill set, dive Rote Indonesia to enjoy a complete ocean experience.

Dive Sites

Since early 2013 we have been exploring Rote’s surrounding waters like true pioneers in search of areas with interesting marine life. After careful exploration we’ve come up with these 16 dive sites. This enables us to provide our customers with a versatile dive experience. Our goal is to keep adding to this already elaborate list in the coming years.

Obviously diving is dependent on visibility, which is a result of wind and swell. We generally dive around the south and west coast of Rote island Indonesia, however other locations exist on all coasts, and we can and do offer options to dive in all conditions.
