Itineraries

Komodo & Beyond | 11D/10N (30 dives)

Day 1 - Bali : After boarding Adelaar in Serangan in the South of Bali, you will enjoy your first day on board whilst cruising along the Bali coast in the afternoon before crossing the Wallace line in the evening.

Day 2 - Moyo : Clear, warm water with lots of fish awaits you on the first day of diving on the seamounts off the island of Moyo. An optional village visit with a stroll to a nearby waterfall is also possible. (2 to 3 day dives)

Day 3 - Sangeang : After a second night’s crossing, the critters inhabiting the colourful reefs of Sangeangs rich black sandy slopes are waiting to be discovered. (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 4 - Banta : A completely different underwater landscape provides the setting for today’s underwater adventure. The hard coral formations on Bantas white sandy substrate are the home of a multitude of fish, turtles, sea snakes, reef sharks and the occasional eagle and manta rays. (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 5 - South Komodo: This whole day is dedicated to rays: during the day we check out ‘Manta Alley’, arguably one of the world’s best sites to observe the gentle giants – and in the evening we look for their smaller cousins, the elusive torpedo rays. (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 6 - South Rinca : Extraordinarily healthy and unique reefs that shelter an abundance of weird and wonderful critters make this part of the Komodo national park a photographer’s dream. (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 7 - Central Komodo : In the morning we visit the island of Rinca to spot some of the terrestrial wildlife found in the park – with the Komodo dragons as highlights. After the walk we’ll dive some of the action packed sites of the central section of the park – stunning coral reefs bathed in a dazzling explosion of colourful fish life, that will make any diver beg for more of the same. (2 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 8 - Gili Lawa : The seamounts and drift dives around the Gili Lawa islands in the northernmost part of the park are deservedly amongst the signature dive sites of the Komodo archipelago – a real diver’s dream. In the evening, the effort of climbing up to the viewpoint will be rewarded with a glorious sunset over the whole national park. (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 9 - Tatawa : The constant current feeding the corals around the Tatawa islands make sure that the surrounding reefs are as colorful as tropical reefs can get – an adequate setting for our last dives in the park. (3 day dives)

Day 10 - Palue : The steep walls of the volcanic Island Palue to the North of Central Flores are covered in soft corals and gorgonians – with a bit of luck we might even spot a pygmy seahorse or some of the rare nudibranchs found on these reefs. After the morning’s diving, we’ll pull up the sails and start the final stretch of our voyage. (2 day dives)

Day 11 - Maumere : After a last delicious breakfast it is time to say goodbye and disembark – until the next time.


Banda Sea | 11D/10N (30 dives)

Day 1 - Ambon : After boarding Adelaar in Ambon, you will enjoy your first day on board whilst cruising straight into the heart of the blue Banda Sea.

Day 2 - Ai & Gunung Api : Our first day of diving is along the steep walls surrounding the whole island of Ai. From a plateau with pretty hard coral gardens, these walls, beautifully decorated in yellow soft corals, plunge deep into the dark blue clear Banda Sea. With a bit of luck we might already meet the first hammerhead shark of the trip. In the late afternoon everybody will be on deck to witness the goose bump moment of the arrival into one of the most spectacular and beautiful natural harbours in the world between the islands of Banda Neira, Gunung Api and Lonthor (Banda Besar). (3 day dives, 1 night dive)

Day 3 - Banda Neira : After a guided visit to the historic town of Banda Neira, the fort, museum and spice plantations, we have traditional Bandanes breakfast before strolling back to port through the bustling market of this lovely town. One of today’s dives is on a new reef that has been growing naturally on the spur of the lava from Gunung Apis 1988 eruption – it is a fantastic example of nature’s ability to recover from natural disaster. In the evening we will dive at dusk to try and spot some romantic mandarin fish. (2 day dives, 1 dusk dive)

Day 4 - Banda Besar & Sjahrir : The unique location of the Banda archipelago enhances chances of close encounters with pelagics such as big tunas, Spanish mackerels, giant jacks or even thresher sharks. In the evening we have a farewell dinner from Banda Neira in the tropical garden of a beautiful house from the colonial period. (3 day dives)

Day 5 - Hatta : The diving off Hatta, the easternmost Island of the Banda archipelago, named after Indonesia’s first vice-president, is our first day of diving dedicated to seeing schooling hammerhead sharks. (4 day dives)

Day 6 - Manuk : an old, lonely volcano that arises from the depth of the Banda sea. It attracts a huge colony of resident seabirds above the waves, while under water the island is home to schools of jacks, surgeonfish, tunas, barracudas and other pelagic fish species – as well as a lot of sea snakes. These venomous but absolutely unaggressive reptiles can be encountered on each dive around Manuk, sometimes in great numbers, which makes these dives absolutely unique. (4 day dives)

Day 7 - Sarua : There are no words that can do justice to the sheer awesomeness of the hammerhead site of Sarua. So we do not even try. (4 day dives)

Day 8 - Sarua : As mentioned above. That’s why one day is not enough. (3 day dives)

Day 9 - Run & Nailakka : Back in the Banda archipelago we dive around Run, an island that used to be the most desirable piece of real estate in the whole world. So desirable that it was reluctantly and under a lot of pressure traded by the English to the Dutch against an undesirable piece of land on the other side of the world called Manhattan. Apart from its history, Run is beautiful – on the surface covered in nutmeg trees and under the water the steep slopes are studded with huge gorgonian sea fans. It is yet another place that attracts schooling hammerhead sharks and other pelagics. We finish the day with a few drinks on the beach of Nailakka, the beautiful, but tiny island that was home to the English for several years after they lost Run to the Dutch. (3 day dives)

Day 10 - Manukang : On the way between Run and Ambon we stop for a couple of dives on a volcanic outcrop that is according to Moluccan lore known to be haunted – this we cannot judge, but what we do know, is that it attracts its fair share of pelagic visitors that swim along its underwater ridges that are covered in huge barrel sponges. After the last dive we set sails and start our trip back to reality. (2 day dives)

Day 11 - Ambon : After a last delicious breakfast it is time to say goodbye and disembark – until the next time.

everything was great! beautiful boat, amazing crew, enjoyable diving, fantastic food and service!

Lisa, 23/08/2014

We went for a 11days (10 nights) long liveaboard diving in Komodo on Adelaar which was booked by Dive and Cruise in July 2013. The trip was fantastic and I would highly recommend it. It was our first trip to Asia and we were thoroughly impressed. Our favourite site was Manta Alley! I still remember that we were surrounded by 15 manta rays that just made pass after pass for the entire dive. I've only seen a 4 manta rays together before and they generally very shy and didn't stick around divers. But in Komodo the manta rays came right up to us and stayed for the entire dive, very friendly to divers. The southern sites we liked a bit more, even though these sites were a little colder than the ones up the north. There were no other boats during our stay, and the fish life seemed a little more undisturbed. The best dive site for us in the south was Cannibal rock. Schools of life, and very beautiful large soft corals. The diving in the north parts was also good, but it was a bit more crowded for the time when we were there. The highlights of all the diving in Komodo are: manta rays, pygmy sea horse, blue ribbon eel, mandarin fish, mantis shrimp, very friendly turtles, sea apples, crinoid shrimp, orangutan crabs, and nudibranch galore, sea rabbit... And the boat Adelaar was fantastic! we were really happy we made the good choice, We stayed at the Stateroom 2, and the cabin space are large, comfortable, even luxury compare to most of the liveaboards we've been. The crew on board always helpful and smiling, they provided super excellent services during our trip. The food was tasty and fresh. It was a very happy trip, thanks to Dive and Cruise team to made it so smooth, we had nothing to complain at all.
