House reef

The alamBatu house reef, situated directly off the resort, is a wonderful and mostly untouched reef of over 800 meters. The coral diversity varies from soft corals, black corals, table corals and gorgonians up to 2 meters in diameter. The corals shelter a fantastic underwater world with many schools of fish (including juvenile barracudas, snappers), reef sharks, sea horses, harlequin shrimps and other critters.

With a bit of luck you can also see dolphins, pilot whales and ocean sunfish passing by.

Snorkeling is also possible and is a good alternative to scuba diving. The top of the reef offers you to see many different sea creatures.

Night dives and fluo-diving are also offered. Equipped with a blue light and a special filter for your mask, the fluorescent animals glow in different colors; providing a glowing underwater experience that you will love.

boat diving

Aside from the beautiful house reef, there are numerous nearby dive sites that offer a variety of diving options including coral diving, muck diving and wreck diving. By Boat it only takes 15 minutes to get to the "Liberty" wreck or to the famous dive spots "Drop off", "Ulami" and "Coral Garden" in Tulamben. 

alamBatu is also an outstanding place for macro photographers. Our dive guides are great at spotting micro critters such as pygmy sea horses and other small species.
