Scuba diving in Boo Windows
The Boo Windows dive site, located off the tiny island of Boo, southeast of Misool Island, features interesting underwater topography with a number of large swim-throughs, or ’windows’ that start to appear just below the sea surface. The reef around the islet gently slopes to 5-10m/16-33ft before it turns into a steep wall that drops sharply to a sandy bottom at a depth of around 35m/115ft. On the southern side of the reef divers will find a rocky plateau with an extended soft coral growth. The Boo islet itself is so small that it is possible to swim around it just in one dive.
When to go
The Boo Windows dive site is open for diving all year round. The annual water temperature averages around 28C/82F.
What to see
Divers will enjoy exploring the large underwater 'windows' at this site. They will see diverse marine life throughout their dives, including colorful soft corals, some interesting nudibranchs, pygmy seahorses, lionfish, schooling batfish, and wobbegong sharks.
