Description

Boat

Dewi Nusantara was built in Kalimantan (Borneo), Indonesia during 2007 to 2008, with an overall length of 57 meters and 12 meters wide, this three masted topsail schooner moves with a grace and stability that only larger sailing vessels can offer. It cruises at 9 knots per hour, there is 220 volts power onboard.

While you experience the romance of a bygone area you will be able to indulge in the sheer luxury of finding lots of space everywhere you go from bow to stern.

The main deck is where most of the day to day action goes on and houses most of the vessels facilities such as a multi-system TV unit for digital video, camera playback, a compact disc player, a DVD player and iPod docking player, a small library of “books for exchange” is maintained on-board, as well as marine life identi cation books for reference. The superstructure at the bow houses the anchor winch room with the dive centre/camera room directly behind. Moving outside towards the stern is our huge dive deck and outdoor dining area.

Our luxurious motor sailer will be plying 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. Raja Ampat casts a spell on all who visit – scientists, photographers, novice divers and crusty sea-salts alike. This group of majestic islands, located in the northwestern tip of Indonesia’s Papuan “Bird’s Head Seascape” lies in the heart of the coral triangle, the most bio-diverse marine region on earth.

Dewi Nusantara's trip Starting and ending 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.


Cenderawasih Bay

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.

Dewi Nusantara's trip Starting and ending at Manokwari, our 11-night Cenderawasih Bay cruises o er nine and a half days of spectacular and varied diving, with between two and four dives per day and many fascinating land excursions along the way.


Flores and Alor

The Flores-Adonara-Solar-Lembata-Pantar-Alor island chain in Indonesia lies toward the eastern end of the long Nusa Tenggara archipelago, 160 nautical miles directly south of the large island of Sulawesi and 500 nautical miles east of Bali. These scenic and highly volcanic islands lie eight degrees below the equator and enjoy calm blue seas and warm sunny weather throughout most of the year.

During or operating year the magni cent Dewi Nusantara motor sailer visits the Flores and Alor region for selected cruises in this fascinating part of Indonesia to bring you the very best that this unusual and pristine region has to offer.

SE Sulawesi & East Nusa Tenggara

Dewi Nusantara heads out on some unique dive cruises that take in several of Indonesia’s most colourful, interesting and diverse dive destinations; Buton, Wakatobi, Alor, Lembata and East Flores.

Taking up part of our operational year, Dewi Nusantara will be cruising and exploring the seas between Buton, south east Sulawesi to Maumere, on the north coast of Flores. These trips are scheduled to run one way from two di erent directions. Firstly, north to south from Baubau on the island of Buton, then to the Wakatobi region before crossing the Flores sea to visit Alor, Pantar and Lembata and nishing at Maumere in Flores. The other option runs south to north and starts in Maumere, reversing the rst route and nishing at Buton, ying home from Baubau.


Maluku

The Moluccas, meaning in Arabic “Land of Many Kings”, or to give the region it’s modern name, Maluku, was the rst part of the Indonesian archipelago to capture the imagination of European mariners and explorers. The natural beauty of Maluku is a picture perfect vision of a desert island paradise: powder white beaches, clear blue waters and gently swaying coconut palms. However, it was not for this that the explorers came; it was for a treasure that held the highest prices in the European markets at the time: rare spices.

Covering a huge area and including the Banda Sea, the three major areas of Maluku Utara (north), Maluki Tengah (central) and Maluku Tenggara (south east) run along a north-west to south-east diagonal line from Halmahera, across Ambon and the Banda Sea, down to the Tanimbar and the Aru islands that lie off the west coast of the island of Papua - a stretch of over a thousand kilometres : Halmahera, Ambon, The Banda Sea, The Forgotten Islands.

Although rare, Dewi Nusantara will be making some trips that will be taking in some of the di erent areas of the Maluku region.


Komodo

Welcome to Komodo, the “Land That Time Forgot”. Most world-class diving sites are usually formed by either unusual volcanic formations of undersea rock or extensive deposits of coral limestone, washed over by nutrient-rich marine currents. Dewi Nusantara will be visiting the fabled Komodo National Park and surrounding areas as part of our annual schedule.

Diver's reviews (1)

BING, 15/07/2015

I just completed the Komodo trip, with the Dewi. Dive master Andrea was my Buddy. I was trying my best to stay for another trip didn't want to leave. We celebrated my 75th year, and 100th dive width the WONDERFUL CREW. ANDREA and the crew helped me out when my deflater botton broke and the bcd was empty. They provided spare bcd, as mine couldn't repaired. My computer got out of gage mode (my fault) they had a spare that I could so I only missed one dive. I'll keep coming back Andrea and her great Crew are the best.
