HOW TO GET TO WEDA RESORT?
Weda Resort is situated on the East coast of Central Halmahera in North Maluku, Indonesia. On the map below you will find us exactly between North Sulawesi and Raja Ampat, Papua.
There are two different airports you can use to come to Weda Eco Resort:
The nearest airport, Ternate (TTE) has daily flights from Manado, Ujung Pandang (Makassar), and even two direct, non-stop flights from Jakarta. Ternate also has connecting flights to Ambon and other places in East Indonesia.
Transfer from Ternate Airport to Weda Eco Resort takes in total about 4 hours, first a small drive over Ternate Island, then a speedboat journey of 45 minutes followed by a drive through primary forest, past traditional villages, and with breathtaking views of volcanoes, lakes and rivers.
You can also fly to Kao on Halmahera. The code for this airport is KAZ but often it is named Tobelo. Although the town of Tobelo lies 1,5 hours car ride North of Kao. There is a flight every morning from/to Manado by Wings Air. We will pick you up at Kao airport and bring you to Weda Resort by car. This very nice trip takes minimum 4 hours, but you can stop whenever and as often you want to watch the scenery, to spot Parrots and Hornbills or to have a picnic on the beach. Except from the last 10 kilometers near the Resort, the roads are in very good condition.
We would be happy to organize all your transfers by boat and car, as well as buying your domestic flights and booking hotels as necessary.
DIVING & FLYING
The DAN guidelines for flying after diving are:
For a single no-decompression dive, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 12-hours is suggested. For multiple dives per day or multiple days of diving, a minimum pre-flight surface interval of 18-hours is suggested. For dives requiring decompression stops, there is little evidence on which to base a recommendation. A pre-flight surface interval substantially longer than 18 hours appears prudent.
