MY DAMAI I was built in Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi, by Pak Hadji Baso, the most prestigious builder in the area. The collaboration of traditional skills with years of experience in the Indonesian liveaboard diving industry has created a remarkable vessel. MY DAMAI I has been designed to offer a personal service that only a vessel of this size that is dedicated to small groups can provide. With an overall length of 40 meters (130 feet) and a beam of over 8 meters (26 feet) the vessel has 7 staterooms with a choice of single cabins, twins, doubles or two spacious master cabins. With sizes ranging from 18sq. meters for the single cabin to +40sq. meters for the master cabin, all are furnished with either queen or king sized beds, ensuite toiletts and showers. The vessel has been designed with three large deck areas for relaxing in both the sun or shade and for enjoying relaxing massage and spa treatments. Specifically designed for divers, the vessel offers large dive stations with individual rinse tanks and a camera room with separate camera work stations with integrated 110v and 220v charging station for each photographer. The vessel is the first in Indonesia to offer a divemaster/guide to customer ratio of 4 to 1 ensuring the best service underwater as well as onboard.

ALOR

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!!

ASMATS

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.

BALI

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.

BANDA SEA

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

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.

GORONTALO AND TOGEAN ISLANDS

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.

HALMAHERA

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!!

KOMODO

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

RAJA AMPAT

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 FORGOTTEN ISLANDS

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

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
