Morotai is the last island before the Pacific Ocean in the north and therefore counted as an important strategic bastion in WW2. On September 15th, 1944, Morotai Island, which was held by 500 Japanese soldiers, was run over by an American force of 60.000 men. From then on Morotai played a defining role for the Allies to invade the Philippian Islands. For their forces the Americans built an airport with seven landing strips and when the Allies left, they also left behind numerous cars, trucks, tanks, airplanes and ships which mostly were just pushed into the ocean or were sunk. They created a mecca for divers…. Good for us today!

Nothing easier than diving with sharks. From Metita Beach & Dive Resort it is just a 2-minute boat ride to the outer edge of the reef where the sandy plateaus are slowly descending. There you take a break on 18m for a while and watch the sharks effortlessly gliding around you in the current. To end your dive, you will follow the reefs looking for makro and schools of sweetlips or mackerels.

Not many years ago, in 2013, a new species of shark was discovered in Halmahera: the Walking Shark. The shark, Hemiscyllium halmahera, uses its fins to wiggle along the seabed and forage for small fish and crustaceans. The shark, which has wide horizontal stripes, grows to a maximum length of just 75cm and is harmless to humans. It is easily found during the night in shallow sandy or broken coral areas. Aside from this unique creature the other beautiful animals to be found in the dark should not be missed.
