Departing from the Sultanate of Ternate, the Damai II liveaboard will make the first stop at the volcanic island of Tidore to enjoy schooling fish and some cool macro. From here you will island hop through the picturesque northern Maluku islands; from Makian into the archipelago of Goraici with its seamounts with possible manta sightings and great reefs and beautiful coral gardens to Bacan with its world class muck diving in the morning along the black sand slopes in front of the boat-building beach and its schooling barracuda off the wall in the afternoon. Cross the Seram Sea to the remote island of Pulau Pisang with its specatular topography of pinacles and plateaus teaming with schooling fish.Continue onto Misool in the south of Raja Ampat to experience the unique Blue Water Mangroves where the reef meets the mangrove roots. An excellenct opportunity for wide angle photography. We shall spend our final cruise days enjoying the variety of dive sites around Misool in southern Raja Ampat, which provide a superb mix of wide angle and macro subjects, along with plenty of excellent “muck” diving and the opportunity to visit local villages. Our liveaboard cruise ends in Sorong, where guests can enjoy our complimentary airport transfer.
