Itineraries

Alor

Alor liveaboard trips offer divers the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular and untouched coral reefs in Indonesia along with the chance to witness unique behaviours of the many rare and wonderful critters to be found in the Pantar Strait. Divers can expect to see Rhinopias (lacey scorpionfish), pygmy seahorses, manta rays, schools of trevally and even the occasional whale! Departing from Maumere or Kupang, our 7 -10 night dive trips not only take you through the wonders of the Pantar Strait but to lesser dived areas including Rusa, Adonara and Serbete. These areas offer unique habitats, coral reefs, pelagic action, macro critter spotting and the opportunity for island visits.


Banda Sea

Banda Sea liveaboard trips visit the historically significant island of Banda Neira, once the center of the Dutch/Portuguese Spice Trade dating back to the early 1600s, now a virtually inaccessible outpost of Indonesia offering amazing macro subjects and encounters with the rare mandarin fish demonstrating their lively mating rituals. A jewel in the crown of the Banda Sea lies further south at Pulau Manuk where seas are populated by hundreds of seasnakes. Dive Nusa Laut for both an example of healthy coral reef and a chance to see hammerhead sharks.


Bali

Diving in Bali offers an opportunity to experience some amazing underwater treasures. This beautiful island boasts great macro opportunities in the north and east of the island. The annual season for Mola Mola sightings off Nusa Penida in the south can also give you the chance to dive with reef mantas at Manta Point. The USAT Liberty, off the coast of Tulamben in the north east, is one of the most famous shipwrecks in the world offering amazing wide angle and macro opportunities. Liveaboard diving in Bali on Damai I or Damai II would be included in an itinerary of Sumbawa and Komodo.


Cendrawasih Bay

Cenderawasih Bay liveaboard trips offer you the unique opportunity of spending hours diving or snorkelling with multiple Whale Sharks and we regularly see the sub-adults around the local fishing platforms in only a few meters of water. However the area also boasts an incredibly rich history from the many battles between Allied and Japanese forces in the area during WWII and the area is littered with diveable wrecks of aircraft and ships. Finally there are the unique biological aspects of the bay. Geologically the area has been isolated for many millions of years and as a result many unique and endemic species have developed. Fish and creature watchers will be delighted by many species that they will have never seen before.


Komodo

Komodo liveaboard trips offers divers the chance to visit all the iconic dive sites like Batu Bolong and Castle and Crystal Rock as well as a chance to enjoy some lesser known beauties in both the north and the south of the area. We will also give you the opportunity to go ashore for a short trek with the endemic Komodo dragons. Damai I and Damai II liveaboards offer dates throughout the year and the charters leave from both Bima, Sumbawa and Labuanbajo, Flores to ensure you experience this amazing destination in depth. Damai can also combine this itinerary with diving in Bali and Alor.


Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat liveaboard trips offer divers the opportunity to explore the entire region. You have the colourful soft coral areas around the southern islands of Misool with the opportunity to see sharks and mobula rays. In the north you have the world famous current rich Dampier Straits with iconic dive sites like Cape Kri and Blue Magic. In the east you can visit pristine coral gardens and climb to the viewpoint above the lagoon at Penemu. In the north you can dive with mantas at Kawe and go critter hunting in Aljui Bay. Luxury liveaboard diving on Damai I or Damai II offers charters out of Sorong and gives you the opportunity to explore this extensive area in comfort. You can combine this excellent itinerary with other destinations like Triton Bay and Cenderawasih Bay to complete the Papuan diving experience.


The Forgotten Islands

Forgotten Islands liveaboard trips offer divers the opportunity to cruise around this chain of remote, beautiful islands known as the Ring of Fire, while enjoying the casual comfort, amenities and unique service that has made the Damai vessels the most desirable liveaboards in Indonesia. Diving in the Forgotten Islands brings you to incredibly rich waters and the area is typified by crystal clear water, deep walls and pinnacles, awesome overhangs and swim-throughs, beautiful pristine corals, huge barrel sponges and large schools of fish. Some of the islands in South Maluku, like Nils Desperandum and Terbang are famous for sightings of hammerhead sharks. Others have walls with colourful softcorals like at Dai and still others are current swept and full of reef fish like the channel at Lelar.


Triton Bay

Triton Bay liveaboard trips offer divers the chance to explore the whole region including Namatote island in the north in search of the elusive tiger shrimp on the colonial anemones and the current rich Aiduma Island in the south with its iconic dive sites like the soft coral covered Little Komodo. In the south you can enjoy clearer water and plenty of fish at the island of Dramai and also dive inconic sites like Batu Jeruk on the southern tip of Aiduma, well named for the covering of orange soft corals.
