Sumatra West, Cubadak Island, Cubadak Paradiso Village


Situation : Cubadak island is located on the Indian ocean in the straight separating the western coast of Sumatra and the Mentawai islands. The constant 29˚ C sea temperature as far as down to 30 metres guarantees a water loaded in nutriments that enable the development of a very rich biodiversity and eco-system. The mild climate throughout the year allows us to go diving just any time in the year. Mild currents, and the great diversity of the dive sites fit in well into our relaxation policy, making diving enjoyable for advance divers and very easy for beginners. Fauna and flora : A large number of coral and sponge species may be observed during the dives. Sea fans, pipe coral, bubble coral, barrel sponges … The abundance of nutriments in the sea as well as the large variety of corals contribute to a significant biodiversity in terms of fish species, turtles, crustaceans or invertebrates. Most species of tropical reef fishes are to be seen here, from groupers to trigger fishes and clown fishes, oriental sweet lips, trevallies, barracudas to only name a few. Very colourful nudibranches are commonly seen as well as a variety of star fishes or sea cucumbers, and the more rare pleurobranches. With respect to our location within the Mentawai straight, our zone is protected from oceanic currents and for this reason large pelagic species are not prevalent here. The Dive Center : Our team is composed of Marco (PADI dive instructor), Nanni (SSI dive master) and 2 boat men and is at your disposal to arrange for all your dive trips. We also propose PADI dive courses, from the first level Open Water Diver to the first professional level Dive Master. Courses may be given in English, French or Italian. The dive trips are arranged with one of our two 10m boats, each equipped with 2 Yamaha 4 stroke 100 horse power engines. 10 full sets of equipments are available for rent, which are regularly maintained. The dive centre is equipped with three Coltri Sub compressors regularly maintained for an impeccable air quality. We can arrange for up to 4 dives a day, 2 dives in the morning, one in the afternoon and one at night before dinner. All our dive sites are located within a maximum one hour radius by boat from the island.
