Dive in the incredibly rich waters and the area is typified by crystal clear water, deep walls and pinnacles, awesome overhangs and swim-throughs, beautiful pristine corals, huge barrel sponges and large schools of fish of the Forgotten Islands.

Alor has its own microenvironment fed by currents from both the Indian and the Pacific oceans. Its waters are extremely rich, with a good variety of "big" and "small" life. The channels between its islands are established passages for cetaceous and blue and sperm whales are not uncommon sights.

Komodo: the land that time forgot. This World Heritage Site has action packed diving, prehistoric Komodo dragons and spectacular scenery.

This is a collection of 3 small islands in the middle of the cold water currents that flow between the islands of Kawula and Pantar. Spectacular rock formation, totally covered with corals, hard and soft, crinoids, anemones. Almost impossible to find any space. In the shallow clouds of red anthias, deeper large snappers, sweetlips, giant groupers, passing sharks. As pure as it gets.

DISCLAIMERS

The trip will be weather dependent and there might be long crossing required throughout. We will, try to adjust the best we can to the conditions and fulfil all itinerary briefed when you’re on the boat.

Due to the need to report to the local village, divers will need to be flexible with the start time of the first dive at some of the dive sites. We will ensure that you’re given timely update on this during the trip, however your understanding on last minute changes would be appreciate. This is because divers are only allowed in the water once permission is granted by the local villages and officers.

Damai are flexible to change itinerary suggested based on customer’s preference in the event that weather and time allow us to do so and if changes is agreeable by all participants on board
