Blade, Wakatobi

This is a unique dive site and usually the furthest site regularly accessed by the resort's day boats. Blade is a series of small sea mounts in clear open water, resembling the blade of a serrated knife, hence its name. Diving from the top of one sea mount to another is an amazing experience: less so when there is a current as it rather denies you the opportunity to 'take it all in'. At times though, the experience can be quite overwhelming.
Blade is about as picturesque as it gets, complete with giant sponges, sea fans and corals, and of course colourful crinoids sitting on top of everything. The red whip corals seem to be growing everywhere, and provide fantastic photo opportunities, as do the sea fans that can at times grow to upwards of 6 - 10 feet (2 - 3 m) across.
