If you’re into scuba diving, why not bring your experience to a whole new level at Indonesia’s underwater volcano. Located between Siau and Sangihe Islands, Banua Wuhu, also known as Mahengetang volcano, is the only active underwater volcano you can actually dive at without the threat of lava and toxic fumes.

The underwater volcano rises more than 400 metres from the sea floor, forming a shoal less than 5 metres below the water surface. The shoal becomes a habitat of gigantic sponges and other gorgeous marine life forms. An exorbitantly rich and diverse underwater world awaits every brave diver. While there’s no immediate volcanic danger, one must wear the right kind of dive suit as the waters exposed to sulphur may give some amount of discomfort.

This video should inspire you to scuba dive at Indonesia’s one-of-a-kind underwater volcano.
