Dive Information & Destinations

Komodo Straits (Dragons: Bima – Labuhanbajo – Bima)

From Bima to Sabolan-Sebayor, thence to Rinca, Padar and Nusa Kode in the south of Komodo, Red Beach and the straits, Gili Lawa, Banta island and Sangiang. In the 6 nights onboard cruises we explore the warmer waters of the Northern part of the Komodo Straits and in the 5 nights onboard cruises we concentrate in the cooler waters of the Southern part of the Straits. The 11 nights onboard cruises cover the whole National Park with a very short stop over in Labuhanbajo. The last cruise of the Komodo season extends sail towards the east to Maumere to dive the amazing Maumere Bay (see the routes Maumere – Ambon and Maumere – Sorong )

SMY Ondina Liveaboard

Raja Ampat (Paradise Birds: Sorong – Sorong)

SMY Ondina Liveaboard

Leaving from the port of Sorong, in the “Bird’ s head peninsula”, we will travel through the archipelago from the island of Waigeo in the north to Misool in the south. The area where we will sail holds the record of the biggest number of different species counted in a single dive. National Geographic compares the species found here with the ones that can be seen in Palau. The reefs of Raja Empat enjoy a healthy marine biodiversity with more than 400 species of coral having been discovered here. Besides the abundance of fauna, this region contains numerous wrecks of Japanese ships and aeroplanes from the terrible battles held during the Second World War in this area. All the ingredients for a perfect adventure!

In brief: From Sorong to the Dampier Straits and from there to Aljui Bay, West Waigeo. Next to Kawe-Wayag, on the Northern end of the group, and down to Fam. Way South to Misool and back to Dampier and Sorong.

Cenderawasih Bay (Whale Sharks and Wrecks: Biak – Biak, Biak – Manokwari, Manokwari – Biak)

For this route we fly from Sorong to Manokwari or Biak where we will start sialing to explore the remote Cenderawasih Bay dive sites.

Because of its isolated location this bay is protected from the Pacific currents which promote the gathering of certain endemic species. In Cenderawasih Bay we can encounter in the shallows species that normally live in deeper waters. We will also find a wide variety of corals. The good muck diving will keep the lovers of the tiny and strange critters busy, they will enjoy searching for pigmy seahorses, tiger prawns and frog fish among other species.

Those who like wrecks, in Cenderawasih Bay will be able to dive in several famous ships and planes, sunk durink Word War II. A great opportunity for easy wreck diving.

But the bay popularity comes from being one of the very few areas in the world where there can be found a resident colony of whale sharks, the largest fish in the Oceans. Actually the whale shark is the star in this bay. Whale sharks come here in large numbers to feed on anchovies which congregate near the fishing platforms.
