Itineraries

Ultimate Raja Ampat | 11D/10N - 13D/12N | Oct - Apr

The most popular Raja Ampat liveaboard itineraries, and the one to choose if you want to experience the best diving in Raja Ampat. You will visit and dive Misool and Dampier Strait, renowned for its world-class wide-angle dives, one-of-a-kind soft corals, and a density of fish like nowhere else in the world. Also known for its manta rays and amazing macro dives at Batanta. In North Raja Ampat, you will see firsthand Wayag’s iconic landscape, with lots of small islands and turquoise water, alongside some great dives. We always include at least non-diving activities during our cruise such as beach hopping, beach barbecues, a climb in Wayag for its breathtaking view, local village tours, jellyfish lake trip, Blue River visit, and a trek to see the birds of paradise.


Raja Ampat Misool & Dampier Strait | 10D/9N | Oct - Apr

If you’re short on time but want to dive the best of Raja Ampat, then this is the itinerary for you. We will take you to the same dive sites and areas as the Raja Ampat Ultimate itinerary, minus the North, guaranteeing a spectacular time for divers and non-divers alike.


Banda Sea | 12D/11N or 15D/14N | Sep - Nov

You'll across the Ring of Fire and the forgotten islands, steeped in history and blessed with some of the finest diving in the country, with an immense variety and volumes of both large and small species. We visit many different islands and a great variety of dive sites. To make the experience unique, our itineraries mostly combine the Banda Sea with another great destination like Raja Ampat, Alor, Triton bay, Ambon etc.


Triton Bay | 12D/11N or 15D/14N | Nov - Mar

The destination is special: although superb, we never devote an entire cruise. Thus Triton Bay is either at the beginning or at the arrival of a cruise which also visits the Raja Ampat, the Banda Sea and its Ring of Fire or even, in 14 nights, both! In our safaris, we take you not only to dive and cruise Triton Bay in Kaimana District but also to the famous Raja Ampat and the northern part of the Banda Sea and the Ring of Fire!


Halmahera | 11D/10N or 15D/14N | April & May

This off the beaten track destination is a gem. Located in the center of the Coral triangle, right on the equator with one of the lowest density of population of Indonesia, Halmahera archipelago has everything a nature lover is expecting...and even more. As far as diving and snorkeling are concerned, Halmahera has all types of diving: wrecks, muck dives, pelagic, drift dives, walls, and everywhere those so colorful corals surrounded by schools of small and big fish.


North Sulawesi & Wakatobi | 11D/10N or 15D/14N | May - Aug

Two itineraries that visit the East coast of Sulawesi and the Togian islands and end in Luwuk. Beautiful dive sites on the East coast in the areas of Ratatotok, Tanjung Flesko, and Gorontalo (fabulous walls and whale sharks !). We then dive the best spots of the Togian islands, especially around the islands of Una2. the two last days are spent in the Tompotika area.

Wakatobi is a beautiful diving zone Jacques Cousteau defined as an underwater Nirvana. Macro is well represented but not only. Walls, cliffs, ridges, dries, pinnacles... incredible seascapes, pristine beaches, hundreds of species of corals and fishes.


Komodo | 9D/8N or 13D/12N | Jun - Sep

In the north, you can find a collection of the world’s most beautiful varieties of reefs, boasting a rich combination of hard and soft corals, shoals of anthias, wrasses, angelfishes, and also predators—reef sharks, tunas, and giant kingfishes. In the south, you will see more soft corals with an amazing profusion of colors, and even more macro (and manta rays too!). The water is rather cold and the temperature can drop down to 23°C in July and August.


Derawan Islands | 10D/9N or 12D/11N | Jun - Sep

You will dive in its 4 main islands: Kakaban, Sangalaki, Maratua, and Derawan. The dive sites greatly vary with plenty of caves, wrecks, muck, walls, and reefs to choose from. Other species that may be seen in the area include hammerhead sharks, thresher sharks, leopard sharks, dolphins, dugongs, and barracudas. And in Kakaban, you can swim with various species of endemic jellyfish!

Bateau extremement agreable. les photos de la gallery sont tres fideles a la realite. Il y a juste une anomalie sur le plan de cabine, le plan des cabines 5 et 6 sont ceux des cabines 3 et 4 et reciproquement.
