Itineraries

Alor

Departing from Maumere or Kupang, our 7-10-night trips not only take you through the wonders of the Pantar Strait but to lesser dived areas including Rusa, Adonara and Serbete. These regions include unique habitats, coral reefs, pelagic action, macro critter spotting and the opportunity for island visits.


Banda Sea

Damai I and Damai II liveaboards offer multiple dates departing out of Ambon to visit these pristine reefs and cruise in luxury on seas of indescribable beauty and biodiversity. We also combine dives in the Banda Sea within our Forgotten Islands, Alor and Raja Ampat itineraries.


Bali

Liveaboard diving in Bali on Damai I or Damai II is included within our Sumbawa and Komodo itineraries. Diving around Bali caters to both wide angle and macro enthusiasts. North and East island coasts boast year-round macro subjects, while off the coast of Tulamben lies the USAT Liberty (one of the world’s most famous shipwrecks) with its fair share of wide-angle delights. Year-round reef manta ray sightings and an annual mola mola season are only a short boat-ride south to the island of Nusa Penida.


Cendrawasih Bay

DAMAI liveaboard trips to Cenderawasih Bay are a unique way to spend hours diving or snorkelling with whalesharks around the local fishing platforms. Damai I liveaboard offers a short season of trips out of Biak which concentrate on the inner and outer bay or combine dives in Cenderawasih with Raja Ampat itineraries.


Komodo

Damai I and Damai II liveaboards offer dates throughout the year to visit this iconic National Park. Charters depart from Bima in Sumbawa and Labuanbajo in Flores. DIVE DAMAI can also combine this itinerary with diving in Bali or Alor.


Raja Ampat

Damai I and Damai II run luxury liveaboard charters out of Sorong for comfortable exploration of this majestic region. For a complete Papuan diving experience this itinerary can be combined with destinations such as Trition Bay and Cenderawasih Bay.


The Forgotten Islands

Damai I and Damai II liveaboards offer multiple dates departing from Maumere, Kupang, Saumlaki or Ambon to suit your travel desires. DIVE DAMAI also combines dives in the Forgotten Islands with our Alor and Banda Sea itineraries.


Triton Bay

DAMAI liveaboard trips to Triton Bay explore the entire region. In the north is Namatote island, a great place to search for the elusive leopard shrimp on the colonial anemones. In the south is the current-rich Aiduma Strait with the iconic soft coral-covered dive site, Little Komodo. Further south is the clearer water surrounding the island of Dramai and dive site, Batu Jeruk, appropriately named for its thick covering of bright orange soft corals.


Gorontalo

Gorontalo, being one of Indonesia’s lesser-dived areas, has excellent macro sites scattered around the mouth of the river, and steep walls famous for their exceptional Petrosia lignose (Salvador Dali sponge). Gorontalo liveaboard trips travel south to the Togean Islands nestled in the Gulf of Tomini. Join the comfort of Damai II liveaboard on this diverse and rarely visited itinerary.


Halmahera

North of the Banda Sea and west of the world-famous Raja Ampat lies this underpopulated island and its neighbouring archipelago of volcanoes, sandy beaches, and mangroves. Damai I and Damai II liveaboards combine dives in Halmahera within our Raja Ampat itineraries.


Kalimantan

DIVE DAMA I trips to this region focus on a select few islands, each providing its own unique experience. Sangalaki island is world-famous for its manta feeding station and beach nesting grounds where turtles come every evening to lay their eggs. The Jellyfish lake in Kakaban is the most spectacular in Indonesia with thousands of poison-less jellies. Maratua island can surprise any diver with its massive school of barracuda, and leopard sharks found resting in the shallow lagoon. With a bit of luck, divers can encounter thresher sharks and giant marble rays in Muaras, and have close interaction with whale sharks in Talisayan. Macro lovers will glory in the diversity of bizarre critters in Derawan island.

Damai II liveaboard offers a range of trip dates and durations. Our trips are scheduled during the best time of year in the area to adjust to different guests’ profiles. This destination is even more appealing if thought of as unexplored territory that can provide opportunity to explore new reefs.
