Bintan is the largest island in the Riau province of Indonesia located just south of Singapore. Bintan is lined by a coast of 105 km, and is popular with visitors for its beach resorts and recreational activities like snorkeling, jet-skiing, wind surfing, canoeing, sailing and diving.
Diving in Indonesia can be the fulfilment of a dream or fantasy when a diver imagines tropical diving. Synonymous with diving in Indonesia are – warm waters, stunning corals, colourful reef fish in swarms along dramatic walls, crystal clear visibility and endless Pelagics. Even at the worst of times, diving in Indonesia is an infinitely preferable choice elsewhere. Indonesia’s spectacular underwater world includes some of the best diving on Earth. The diversity of Indonesia is startling, in its geography, in its culture, its biodiversity and the bounty of its seas.
The spectacular variety of Indonesia’s marine life is what keeps divers coming back. From the smaller ones to the bigger ones like Napoleon Wrasses, Giant Groupers, with sharks and rays, tunas, barracudas, and mackerels. Exotic species such as the Leafy Scorpionfish, the mythical Mola Mola, Whales, Dolphins and even the endangered Dugongs. Even the primeval Komodo Dragons can be seen in the waters of Komodo National Park.
