Dive Damai‚Äôs newest vessel, MY DAMAI II was constructed in Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi by Pak Hadji Baso. Pak Hadji Baso is one of the most respected master boat builders in the traditional Indonesian boat building comunity of Bira and was also the builder of Dive Damai's first vessel, MY DAMAI I. MY DAMAI II has a deck length of 40 meters and a beam of 9 meters at its widest point. It has been built to an uncompromising standard and fitted out with all the latest diving, navigation and safety equipment to ensure that the level of service appreciated on our first vessel is maintained and, where possible, improved upon. The new vessel is slightly larger than the first ensuring three large outside deck areas with an outside dining facility, our famous massage and spa treatment area and plenty of extra lounging and sunbathing space. The crew to passenger ratio will be the same as our first vessel and we hope the new systems will ensure an even more enjoyable cruise for both our returning and new guests. The below deck accommodation has been designed to accommodate single or twin occupants in a level of luxury not seen on another vessel in Indonesia. Each cabin boasts a private shower and head with a queen-size bed and a separate day bed. The cabins measure approximately 20sq.mts  (225 sq.ft) each and have been finished with the highest quality furnishings. The stern staterooms are over 400 sq.ft each and boast their own private deck with loungers, a super-king size bed, day beds, two desks and ensuite shower and separate head. The dive systems have been made even more accommodating on the new vessel. The dive station is larger and is served by large individuals rinse tanks. The camera room has been enlarged also. The 4 diver to 1 guide ratio that our customers enjoy so much on the MY DAMAI I has, of course, been maintained and we have added 2 custom designed high speed tender boats.

The waters of Nusa Tenggara timur are a constant source of surprises. The Indonesian government has recently agreed to protect them in order to secure a safe route for migrating cetaceans which pass through the straits on their migration to the feeding grounds in the deep waters of the Banda Sea. The muck dive in the bay of Beangabang, the always fishy Alor Kecil, Rhinopias at Pulau Pura or the colourful walls of Pulau Reta are some of the highlights of this area, as complete as any in the world: mammals, big fish or small invertebrates. All in one!!


This remote area in West Papua offers a some of the most unique tribe encounter experiences in the world. this "suprisingily welcoming" ex-head hunters will share with us thier way of life, show us the richness of their culture and their world reknown wood carving work. one of the few authentic experiences left.


The beautiful island of Bali is not only full of topside wonders but also amazing underwater treasures. Bali boasts great macro diving in the north and the annual season for Mola Mola sightings off Nusa Penida in the south. The USAT LIberty, off the coast of Tulamben in the north east, is one of the most famous shipwrecks in the world offering amazing wide angle and macro opportunities.


Located between the much publicized Raja Ampat islands to the north and the venerable Komodo islands to the south, the Banda Sea is an exciting outpost that offers some of the most unique diving adventures to be found in the Indo-Pacific regions.


Distant volcanic islands and sea mounts rise from the depths offering superb wall diving and boundless marine life. The historically significant island of Banda Neira, once the center of the Dutch/Portuguese Spice Trade dating back to the early 1600s, is now a virtually inaccessible outpost offering amazing macro subjects and encounters with the rare mandarin fish demonstrating their lively mating rituals.


A jewel in the crown of the Banda Sea lies further south at Gunung Api. Pristine reefs, caves and walls, seas populated by hundreds of sea snakes and an excellent chance of sighting schools of elusive Hammerheads. The Banda Sea, an ocean oasis of indescribable beauty and biodiversity


Cenderawasih Bay National Marine Park is one of Indonesia's newest and most exciting diving destinations and DAMAI is one of the most experienced operators here. In fact one of the original survey trips was undertaken from the decks of Damai 1 and our staff have many months working in this challenging and remote location.


The biggest draw for many people is the unique opportunity of spending hours diving with multiple Whale Sharks and we regularly see 5 or more around the local fishing platforms in only a few meters of water. However the area also boasts an incredibly rich history from the many battles between Allied and Japanese forces in the area during WWII and the area is littered with divable wrecks of aircraft and ships.


Finally there are the unique biological aspects of the bay. Geologically the area has been isolated for many millions of years and as a result many unique and endemic species have developed. Fish and creature watchers will be delighted by many species that they will have never seen before.


Here, in the north of Sulawesi, amazing limestone cliffs plunge directly into the sea and continue underwater with breathtaking vertical walls. There are also photogenic overhangs, soft coral infested caverns and, above all, the collection of sponges, each twisted in to a unique Daliesque form making exclusive treats for wide-angle photographers.


The waters around Sulawesi host migrating cetaceans and other pelagics and with such collections of soft corals and sponges, keep your eyes open for other surprising encounters with elusive crustaceans and other super-macro inhabitants.


Wrecks in the north, muck in the south and some of the best hard coral gardens on the planet...A must!!!


Some of the most prolific coral life is found in Indonesian Waters around the west and south west coast of Halmahera. Bait balls attracting numerous hunters, tunas, and mackerel. A fantastic show!!


Good critters in the south and around Bacan Strait, great fish action in Goraici and Hiri. It is bound to be a hot spot and we believe the best is still to be discovered!!


The diversity of marine life in Komodo is amazing. The mix of large and small animals, reef creatures and pelagics, invertebrates and vertebrates, shallow reefs, drop-offs and drift dives produces exceptional diving, widely regarded as some of the best in the world.


'The idea of comparing dive destinations has always made us uncomfortable. But we are very comfortable saying that Komodo will provide you with some of the most memorable diving you will ever do. You will love the place!' Burt Jones and Maurine Shimlock


These jewel-like islands are caressed by a convergence of swift nutrient-rich currents. Here the pulse of marine life thrives from the sea floor to the surface where the kaleidoscope of corals can start in less than a meter of water. The experience of drifting along miles of exquisitely hued reef, brimming with activity, is breathtaking.


There are sites that are so pristine and packed with growth, that a photographer is hard-pressed to find a spot to place a steadying finger. Exotic sea life and macro critters abound of course, and photo opportunities border on overwhelming.


The South Maluku are a chain of beautiful islands connecting Ambon and Timor.


Damai has conducted many trips through this incredibly rich area and the area is typified by crystal clear water, deep walls, awesome overhangs, beautiful pristine corals, huge barrel sponges and large schools of fish.


The trip is recommended for those divers looking for adventure, combining a sense of exploration, while enjoying the casual comfort, amenities and unique service that has made the Damai vessels the most desirable liveaboards in the industry.


Triton Bay's colorful reefs are fed by nutrient rich waters producing huge fields of soft corals, giant sea fans and clouds of planktonic feeding fishes. Its remote location has led to it being described as a 'species factory' by leading marine scientists; the region's dive sites are swarming with fish and almost every nook is occupied by an exotic invertebrate.


'For us, as adventurers and lovers of exotic dive travel, probably the best thing about Triton Bay is that it remains largely unexplored, and liveaboard divers still have the opportunity to dive on untouched reefs' Burt Jones and Maurine Shimlock
