Itineraries

The dive spots around Komodo offer unbelievable variety. One day you can admire rare critters creatures in the morning and in the afternoon drift along with giant mantas and schools of big-eye jacks.

Raja Ampat | 12D/11N

Misool - Waigeo - Jet Fam - Dampier Straight

Raja Ampat, which means “4 Kings” lies in the Coral Triangle. The four main islands are Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo. This expanse of 40,000 square kilometers of marine territory and pristine reefs make these waters a diving haven second to none. Reputed to be the most biodiverse marine habitat on Earth, Raja Ampat is home to many species not found anywhere else. Spectacular, is a word often used to describe this region and is irresistible to divers.

Let us show you around Pindito’s gigantic playground, made up of hundreds (if not thousands!) of dive sites. Edi is one of the real pioneers of Raja Ampat, having not only discovered numerous sites but also must hold some kind of record for the highest amount of dives around here. And still counting!


Banda Sea | 12D/11N

Nusa Laut - Banda Neira - Koon - Misool - Dampier Straight

Roam the vast expanse of the Banda Sea, where the Dutch once took over the Portuguese colony in a bloody fight. Many remains of the colonies are still left to be discovered. Uncover the mysteries of the intriguing world of marine life and get ready for views like you have never seen before. The Banda Sea is in the heart of Indonesia, while still maintaining that off the beaten path feel, best explored by liveaboard.

The diving here is very diverse and spectacular. As these volcanic islands rise up to the surface surrounded by deep-sea water, the chances for sightings of large pelagics are good. That’s what makes this area so thrilling; you never know what’s around the corner.


EAST FLORES – ALOR | 12D/11N - 13D/12N

Alor & Kumba - Buaya, Ternate & Pura - Pantar & Marisa - Kawula - Solor - Adonara - Maumere

What about the muck diving? There are many sites here to explore. Got a critter wish list? Start ticking these off here.

Miraculous and mostly untouched dive sites around Alor are waiting to be discovered by you. Most of them are hidden in the nutrient-rich Pantar Straits between Alor and Pantar. Over many years, Pindito uncovered some of the most secret mysteries of marine wonderlands that remain unknown to other liveaboards. Expect to immerse yourself in a diving paradise brimming over with vibrant creatures. And with a little luck, you might run into sunfish, hammerhead sharks, humpback whales and even marlin and sailfish.


HALMAHERA – MALKUSEA | 12D/11N

Kofiau - Joronga - Maregarano - Tifore - Bangka - Lembeh Straight

This trip takes you from Sorong in Irian Jaya, through the Molucca Sea past Halmahera to Manado in North Sulawesi. The 650 nautical mile journey takes us through a range of different land and seascapes. The trip starts with a taste of the beautiful coral reefs of Raja Ampat. On the south coast of Halmahera we will dive walls and drop-offs with big fish action. The small islands off the west coast of Halmahera are home to great coral reefs. The end of the trip in North Sulawesi offers you pristine coral reefs, great fish life and spectacular critter diving in the famous black sand of the Lembeh Strait. A diverse trip with something for everybody!


Kaimana (Triton Bay) | 12D/11N - 15D/14N

Kaimana (Triton Bay) - Pulau Pisang - Momon

The search for your one-of-a-kind diving adventure is over. Immerse yourself in the unspoiled waters of Kaimina that is home to mystical species that have yet to be discovered. A slice of coral paradise in the remote and mostly untouched archipelago waits to be claimed. This isn’t your same old, never bold diving vacation. This is a mind busting getaway of a whole new level. Experience one of the best marine wonderlands Indonesia has to offer and add an unforgettable experience to your bucket list of life-changing trips.


FORGOTTEN ISLANDS | 12D/11N - 17D/16N

Nusa Laut - Koon - Seroea & Manuk - Pantar - Babar, Leti & Wetar

First explored by the Portuguese, the islands of the Moluccas supplied spices to the west during the 17th and 18th centuries. Today these islands supply thrills for traveling divers. Blue seas, endless reefs, and undiscovered seamounts fill most of the Forgotten Islands 850,000 square kilometers, which means abundant marine life and the possibility of first time encounters with masses of schooling fish or perhaps even a reclusive saltwater crocodile. On these cruises, Pindito will move slowly among tall volcanic islands and low lying coral atolls as we explore the last remaining undersea wilderness within the Indonesian archipelago.
