Best Time

Categorized as a fringing reef, the site also has a drop off and moderate currents suitable for drift diving. However, depending on the time of day, the current is not as strong as other similar sites in Wakatobi.

Marine Bio Diversity

The diversity and abundance of fish will surely amaze; from schools of pelagic fish, to fusilier, grouper, snapper, butterfly fish, angelfish and damselfish, to the diverse number of macro sea creatures such as nudibranchs, goby fish, mantis shrimp, cuttlefish, stonefish, Christmas tree worms and other species. Giant clams can also be spotted among the variety of corals and sea fans.


Situated on the western side of Tomia Island, Kolosuha is a somewhat challenging dive spot.
