The long-awaited Wakatobi airstrip in Indonesia successfully opened July 10. Since plenty of divers found the day and a half to get there from Bali worth the hassle, imagine how worthwhile it must be now! The resort claims to have improved the quality of water for showering and equipment rinsing with a new supply and filtration. And, they’re considering a small-capacity, high-quality live-aboard around our islands beginning later this year.
