The Sunda Straits, the historic water way between Sumatra and Java, is also home tosome of the most remote and pristine areas left in Western Indonesia Through these straits the Indian Ocean meets the Pacific and as a result this region is enormously rich in marine life. Combined with a diverse range of bottom topography this area presents the diver with wide range of diving options from deep walls and towering pinnacles formed by past violent volcanic eruptions, to soft and hard coral coastal reefs and isolated coral cays.
Krakatoa( Indonesian name: Krakatau ) is a volcano near the island of Rakata in the Sunda Strait. It has erupted repeatedly, massively and with disastrous consequences throughout recorded history. The best known of these events occurred in August 27, 1883. Today the diving at Krakatoa is mostly for divers who revel in the odd blacks shapes, caverns, and swimthroughs created by the lava rocks. The cracked and sharp edged rocks make a west facing submarine cliff look like ancient ruins of a temple. The dive sites are very much alive in terms of fish life.
The visibility is fair to good, 10 to 20 meters. Schools of Moorish idols and other reef fish inhabit the area, and one occasionally sees reef white tip sharks. The bright colors emperor angelfish stand out starkly against the background of dark rock. On the south end of the site, the slab scenery is interrupted growths of stag horn and table Acropora, some with blue-tinted fins. Around the rocks to the east grow an astonishing number of orange fan coral gorgonians. The smallest covered three square meters, and the largest, five square meters. The visibility drops here, because of the sandy bottom. Reef black tip sharks patrol this area
