What to expect

In general we will do 3 dives a day and at least 2 -3 night dives, each one of them carefully prepared and checked beforehand, reassuring the right conditions. As a general rule, if your hair is dry it's time to dive and if your hair is wet it's time to eat.
The day begins at around 6:30 am, with a light breakfast of cereal and tea/coffee. We gear up for the first dive of the day at about 7:30. After the first dive it's time for a hot breakfast that you choose from a selection of Western and Indonesian favourites.

The entire day is dedicated to scuba diving unless we are steaming to a new dive site or have a shore expedition planned. There is often a chance to go ashore if the tender boats are available, just ask the crew to take you. Dives on the liveaboard are signalled by a bell, when the bell rings it's time to attend the briefing and begin suiting up for the next dive.

Between dives you can enjoy a massage or just relax on the sundecks, the shady rear lounge deck or in the air conditioned salon. Lunch is served at around 13:00 after the second dive. It usually consists of a soup, and a variety of warm dishes, both Western and Indonesian. At about 3:00 PM it is time for the third dive of the day, which is followed by an afternoon snack. You can then enjoy a lazy late-afternoon on our sundeck, lounging back and soaking in the wonderful landscape with a cup of coffee or tea and some snacks.


About Halmahera

Located between the diving meccas of Manado and Raja Ampat, Halmahera has the potential to be yet another amazing Indonesian scuba diving destination.
Halmahera's pristine beauty, both above the water and below the water, is truly unrivalled.
Its remote location and lack of infrastructure have inhibited the growth of tourism, which works in our favour for truly remote, exclusive liveaboard diving. Topographically and geographically Halmahera is an amazing group of islands with huge biodiversity of fish life and dynamic geology, this also means that dive site types here are very diverse too.
Halmahera offers unspoiled and uncrowded dive sites.
Prepare for unforgettable experiences, from spectacular full-adrenaline dives to long slow relaxed macro spotting dives.
