Dive Information & Itineraries

Book Now Button   


Komodo National Park (7 - 11-night trips | July to October)

  • The Komodo National Park is world renowned for the excellent quality and variety of diving. Water temperatures change between the north and south of the park and provide the diver with varied encounters. 
  • In the north we have the black sands of the Sangeang Volcano with its critters and bubble flows, and the reefs around Gili Banta.
  • The south provides cooler temperatures with manta action and nutrient-rich reefs with ocean flow from the Indian Ocean.
  • The central section provides reefs and small islands teeming with life fed by the currents running between the islands of Komodo and Rinca. Add to this the chance to see the famous Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat, beautiful beaches, look-outs to climb and you have a paradise both below and above the water.
  • Please note: Divers going to South Komodo need to realize the temperatures can drop from 28°C down to around 20°C. A 5mm wetsuit and hood are highly recommended for this region. Water temperature in the central and northern section of the park average 27-28°C.
  • A 7 or 8-night cruise takes in sites in the Central and Southern Sections of the Komodo Region. A 9 to 11 night extended cruise includes the North section of the Komodo Region.

 

 

Raja Ampat (7 - 12-night trips | December to May)

  • Raja Ampat, which in Indonesian means the Four Kings, is a Marine Park world renowned for being the epicenter of marine biodiversity. 
  • The park covers a large area with approximately 170 nautical miles separating the northern and southern extremities. It would be possible to dive for weeks and weeks without seeing the same sites twice.
  • Raja Ampat can be divided into three sections covering the North, Central and Southern Sections. 
  • Spectacular scenery both above and below the water make this heritage area unique and a bucket list item for both divers and lovers of nature.
  • The 7 and 8-night cruises take in sites in the Central and Southern Sections of Raja Ampat. The 9 to 12-night cruises take in sites in the North, Central and Southern Sections of Raja Ampat.

 

Raja Ampat & Banda Islands (12-night trips | May & October)

  • The Ambon to Sorong cruise is special because it takes in two magnificent regions in the one cruise. Beginning in Ambon we head first to the Banda Islands (original Spice Islands) before rounding the east coast of Seram and rejoining the south and central sections of Raja Ampat.
  • The Banda Islands will offer the opportunity for some pelagic action, hopefully hammerheads too, before diving arguably one of the best dive locations worldwide, South Raja Ampat.
  • This cruise will take in the Banda Islands plus the Southern and Central sections of Raja Ampat.

 

Banda Sea (11-night trips | October)

  • The Banda Sea cruise is for those with the spirit of adventure as we set sail to rarely dived sites, islands and atolls. There are several ways to cross the Banda Sea and this depends mostly on the weather and the depths of the thermoclines for the hammerhead sharks. Crossing is generally done in March and October when the prevailing winds are changing between the seasons. Seldom-dived sites, active volcanoes, hammerheads and pelagic action, plus a visit to the mythic Banda Islands (original Spice Islands) make this a once in a lifetime cruise.
  • Please note: There are 600-700 nautical miles to cover during this 12-night cruise. We are mostly diving three dives a day and then traveling at night. This cruise is not advised for people who get very seasick or who are unable to sleep whilst the boat is underway.
  • Land Visits: On this cruise, we visit Banda Neira to see the nutmeg plantation, historic forts and small Maritime Museum. An excursion of half a day, plus two good nights' sleep on anchor before and after.
