Gorango Mini, North Maluku, Maluku Utara, Indonesia
May 12, 2018 | 07:21
Gorango reef is a long underwater ridge running parallel to the northern coastline of Weda Bay. The reef is divided into three dive sites following the contours of the ridge and sloping pinnacles. The dive sites are Gorango Obesar, Mini, and Kecil, or Large, Mini, and Small. Gorango Mini is in the center of the two sites with the largest pinnacle, Gorango Obesar, on the eastern end of the ridge. The top of the Obesar ridge breaks the surface of the water and is the only point which does so on the ridge. https://reefdivers.io/gorango-reef-coral-spotting-weda-halmahera/6237... More

Elmoos Atoll Reef, Indonesia

As we arrived to the reef, low tide was approaching and out of the blue, we spotted the tell-tale signs of a shallow coral reef, turquoise hues appearing from the deep blue sea. Our boat reached the side of the reef and we could see down over 40 feet, the water was crystal clear. Read More:https://reefbuilders.com/2018/06/26/acropora-thrive-halmahera-indonesia/... More

Kobe Reef, North Maluku, Malutu Utara, Indonesia
May 12, 2018 | 14:12
Kobe Reef is a turbid sheltered reef slope located five minutes boat ride south of the Weda Reef & Rainforest dive resort. The reef is named after the local village ‘Kobe’ which is just in front of the reef. Kobe Reef starts with a shallow reef top jam-packed with leather corals, soft corals, and brightly colored Acropora. As you swim towards the edge soft corals start giving way to large clusters of branching corals. The reef slope beings to drop starting from 3m deep depending on the tides.
