This boat is a stunning 57 meter long Indonesian liveaboard which proposes diving and leisure expeditions anywhere in the Indonesian archipelago. After 14 years of operations, its experience in the dazzling Indonesian waters is unparalleled. It has been designed to offer quality, safety, caring service and the most elegant schooner available. The dive team is composed by 4 of the most experienced dive instructors and masters.
The boat can comfortably accommodate up to 18 passengers in 8 spacious staterooms and 1 huge 40 sqm master cabin in the panoramic stern quarters. On board the 9 staterooms are larger than traditional staterooms with around 20 sqm each. All cabins are air-conditioned and have private en-suite shower / toilet. The very comfortable master cabin is at the stern of the main deck and features a king size bed, a separate sitting area with sofa and a table with chairs. This amazing Indonesian boat is equipped with a nice salon and restaurant area, all air-conditioned. There is also a big sun and dive deck, which is ideal for relaxing after the dives.
All diving are done from the two tenders, these twin tenders are specially designed to take local conditions into consideration. Each tender has its own VHF radio, oxygen unit, electric bilge pumps, shot & stern lines etc… There are 2 or 3 dive masters per tender, a driver and an assistant. On dive days, up to 4 dives will be offered, usually accompanied by a dive instructor after a detailed briefing.
Raja Ampat is our home for the majority of the operating year. Our luxurious motor sailer will be playing the waters of this stunning National Park to bring you the very best of this unique and truly beautiful paradise to make your dive vacation dreams come true. Starting and finishing in Sorong, our 11-night cruises offer nine and a half days of spectacular and varied diving with between two and four dives per day with many fascinating land excursions along the way.
This ‘Land that Time Forgot” is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores. Established in 1980, initially the main purpose of the Park was to conserve the unique Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis) and its habitat. However, over the years, the goals for the Park have expanded to protecting its entire biodiversity, both terrestrial and marine. In 1986, the Park was declared aWorld Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, both indications of the Park’s biological importance.
Most of the diving, other than on Manokwari’s excellent WWII wrecks, is within Cenderawasih Bay National Park, Indonesia’s largest. This park is huge, half again larger than Raja Ampat; even a 14 day dive trip barely scratches the “surface” of this underwater wilderness.
Cenderawasih, along with Raja Ampat and Triton Bay, makes up the Bird’s Head Seascape. Its reefs look nothing like Raja’s colorful, fish-filled reefs, nor are they similar to Triton Bay’s soft coral wonderland. Pristine and vast, the bay’s reef tops comprise some of healthiest hard coral gardens to be seen. Dramatic vertical walls with prolific sponge life abound on the outlying atolls, schooling fish along the reef points and ridges.
Set in the heart of Indonesia in splendid isolation are the Banda Islands. This group of volcanic islands played an important role in the history of colonial Indonesia. This is where hundreds of years a go exotic spices were harvested, spices that made Holland a rich and in its time very powerful nation.
The isolated location of the islands in the wide open Banda Sea, and the low level of human population meant lower fishing pressure and the islands have maintained a vibrant, natural and healthy reef system. As a result you can expect reefs bursting with life, huge seafans and sponges, monumental hard corals, and more fish than your wide angle lens can catch!
Wakatobi is a little archipelago within the Indonesia Archipelago. The name Wakatobi derives from the acronym of 4 biggest islands in the cluster, named Wangi Wangi, Kaledupa, Tomia, and Binongko. The islands cluster is located in the heart of coral triangle, right on the imaginary Wallace line, and lies in the sea bordering Flores and Banda seas. Those bring the advantage for the little archipelago, which are abundant nutrients for the marine life. The uniqueness of this geographical causes fascination for scientists to conduct research activities in this area. In the early 1990s, a group of scientists from the UK came to establish a research center and marine expeditions with the name ‘Operation Wallacea’ at Hoga Island not far from the island Kaledupa.
