    Indonesia

    Indonesia is a land of adventure and excitement. Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. It is a large archipelago with rough terrain, but is cheap and effortless to enjoy. Accommodation is usually the greatest expense of Indonesian travel, but it still remains one of the cheapest travel destinations in Asia.

    When traveling to Indonesia, the right preparation can make all the difference! So, do not leave home without these things first:
    • Checking the visa situation, which is constantly changing
    • An emergency stash of money for isolated and remote areas
    • Sun protection- hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, etc.
    • Sturdy boots and sandals
    • An empty bag – to bring any purchases home
    • Waterproof jacket
    There are many exciting things to do in Indonesia such as:
    • Visiting the mummies, markets and taking in the culture of Papua’s Baliem Valley
    • Trekking through coffee plantations and waterfalls around Bali’s Munduk
    • Taking in the sight of deserted islands, volcanoes and jungles
    • Enjoy the smiling faces of the locals
    • Dive some of the best dive sites in the world

    Raja Ampat

    Raja Ampat off West Papua is a dream diving location for scuba divers from all over the world. However, this marine paradise is also an area of strong currents, which can be difficult for even the most experienced of divers. In this article you’ll learn what to watch out for to stay safe in Raja Ampat, the best dive sites for novices, and also if you might need more dives under your belt before you go.

    Alor

    When scuba divers talk about wanting to get away to a remote location in the middle of nowhere and do some amazing diving then this is what they mean. Alor, a small island north of West Timor in Eastern Indonesia, offers dives which are absolutely world class and it is a long, long way from the office.

    Komodo Island

    The land of the dragons promises adventure and excitement. Whether you decide on a shore based stay or a liveaboard, you’ll be blown away by the scenery and the dive sites. The sheer abundance of marine life combined with kaleidoscopic coral reefs, pelagics, including reef sharks, manta rays and passing eagle rays will leave you wishing for more dives.

    Cendrawasih Bay

    Cenderawasih Bay is a large bay to the northwest of the Indonesian province of Papua and east of the province of West Papua, between the Bird’s Head Peninsula and the mouth of the Mamberamo River.

    Banda Sea

    If people probably heard about the Galapagos Islands, Malpeo or Layang Layang for their shoals of Great hammerhead sharks, the Banda Sea and its Ring of Fire is a rare fortune to dive with hammerhead sharks and other pelagic in the hot waters of Indonesia. On the top 5 areas to encounter Squat-headed and Scalloped Hammerheads, our cruises will take you to remote spots for an unforgettable diving experience.

    Forgotten Island

    Indonesia’s “Forgotten Islands” – also known as the Southeast Moluccas (Maluku Tenggara) – are not a single destination, but rather a 1,000 km long chain of archipelagos stretching from Timor to West Papua on the island of New Guinea. Undeveloped, distant from population centers and far off any beaten path, these “Forgotten Islands” have been largely isolated from the rest of Indonesia and the world.

    Triton Bay

    Located at the heart of the Kaimana Marine Protected Area in West Papua, Triton Bay is the final frontier of diving in Indonesia. The region was first surveyed in 2006 and is still being explored today, with new dive sites located every year. Boasting unique underwater habitats, colourful soft corals, incredible endemic species and whale sharks, Triton Bay feels like a time capsule from the past – remote, pristine and awaiting exploration.

    Halmahera

    Located between Raja Ampat & Eastern Kalimantan the Molucca Sea & Halmahera region offers divers the opportunity to embark on some true world class diving. KM Raja Manta offers safaris that cross the Molucca Sea from Sorong to Manado as well as cruises departing and returning to Manado to the remote & largely unexplored Bangka & Sangihe islands.

    Lembeh

    Known as the “critter capital of the world”, the Lembeh strait is home to an abundance of unique and rare marine life which thrive on its black sand muck diving slopes. Lembeh is an underwater playground where nothing is quite as it seems. Be prepared to find the most unusual of critters in the most unexpected of places.

    Bali

    Every scuba diver of all levels can enjoy the magnificent diving in Bali. The best dive sites for beginners are around Amed, Padang Bay, and Pulau Menjangan which have very light or often no current at all.

    Kalimantan

    Some of the world’s best diving can be found in Borneo, namely around Sipadan where reefs teem with fish, sharks and turtles. The two Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak are filled with dense rainforest, white sandy beaches and it is also home to the increasingly rare Orangutans. So for a land and sea combination trip, Borneo is right up there.
