ACCOMMODATION

The lower deck is Dewi Nusantara’s main cabin area with four wonderfully appointed staterooms on the port side, and four on starboard. These 20 square metre rooms are reached from the main stairway in the lounge/salon, via a long corridor running down the center of the vessel. Each cabin can be configured for twin or double use.

 

The Master Suite, occupying the full width of the aft section of the main deck, is the signature room of the ship and is a marvel of design and comfort. It has 180 degree views of the ocean behind the ship, and at 46 square meters it is the largest room on board and surely one the larger suites available on any live-aboard in the world

 

This “one of a kind” suite features a king size bed with bedside tables and reading lights and the stunning en-suite bathroom has a shower as well as a jacuzzi bath with ocean views.

 

The suite has its own lounging area; a large corner sofa with huge table constructed entirely from one piece of natural shaped teak. In the other corner, for our more athletic guests, there is a giant beanbag, but be careful, once in it, it is diffi cult to get out, it’s so comfortable. There is ample storage in the wardrobes as well and extra draws and cupboards in the bathroom, plenty of room for all of your personal belongings.

RAJA AMPAT EXPLORING THE REALM OF THE FOUR KINGS

Located in the heart of the coral triangle off shore from the north western tip of the Bird’s Head Peninsula on the vast island of Papua, lies the pristine

Raja Ampat National Park. Quoted by many as being diving’s fi nal frontier, Raja Ampat casts a spell on all who visit: crusty sea salts, novice divers, photograhers and scientists alike. The national park is huge covering over 50,000 sq km comprising of four main islands: Weigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool.

Alongside the main islands, the park also boasts literally hundreds of karst limestone islands and islets that pop up from the deep blue sea giving the impression that they have been carefully placed by a landscape designer. Raja Ampat boasts an astounding variety of marine habitats, which translates to wildly different diving experiences, from pelagic drift dives to magical muck sites. There are some that are even unique to Raja Ampat, such as clear water mangrove forests with brilliant coral gardens growing right next to them. The area has hundreds of potential dive sites and exploration is still continuing. On every trip there are chances for new and amazing discoveries in one of the world’s last underwater Edens.

Exciting topside diversions are on off er too: thrilling speedboat rides around the emerald forest tipped lagoons, exploring cathedral-like caves, hunting for the elusive “Birds of Paradise” or the chance to visit the industrial aquaculture centres of working pearl farms.

 

Raja Ampat will be the Dewi Nusantara’s home for the most part of the operating year while taking time out for cruises in Cendrawasi, Halmahera,

Banda, Alor and Wakatobi. Please see our schedules and itineraries pages for more details. Our luxurious motor sailer will be plying the waters of the Raja Ampat National Park to bring you the very best of this unique and truly beautiful paradise and make your dive vacation dreams come true. Starting and fi nishing in Sorong, our 11-night cruises offer 10 days of spectacular and varied diving with between two and four dives per day with many fascinating land excursions along the way

CENDRAWASIH BAY: WHALESHARKS, WRECKS & UNEXPLORED REEFS

Taking up the most part of the north western section of Indonesian West Papua, Cendrawasih Bay, combined with Raja Ampat and Triton Bay make

up what is known as The Bird’s Head Seascape. All three of these markedly differing regions are  relatively new to the diving fraternity, with

Cendrawasih Bay being the main contender for the diving world’s latest “must see” destination  award. The bay, marine park and outlying areas sit on the north east side of the Bird’sHead Peninsula and include the towns of Manokwari and Nabire, as well as the larger islands of Biak, Supiori, Numfor, Yapen and the mini archipelago of the Paraido island group. Facing north out into the vast Pacific Ocean, Cendrawasih Bay has features that are rare, even when taking into consideration the incredible range and diversity of diving in other parts of  Indonesia. Looking at the bay on a chart, it soon becomes evident it is somewhat confined and this has caused some unique marine conditions when compared to the fish-filled reefs of Raja Ampat, the soft coral gardens at Triton Bay or the current-washed channels of the Komodo and Alor straits - and this is the reason why Cendrawasih is so different. In contrast to many of the other Indonesian dive centres of excellence, Cendrawasih is the only one not to be greatly affected by what is known as  the “Indonesian Throughflow”. This oceanic phenomenon describes the complex movement of water through  the Indonesian archipelago between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The planet’s biggest water flow  or movement, this mostly north to south exchange of nutrients and larvae is a major factor as to why Indonesia’s oceans and seas have such prolifi c marine life and exciting underwater conditions.

Cendrawasih Bay, on the other hand, is not really aff ected by these huge water movements and - until fairly recently, in geological time frames - the bay was even more cut off and this has caused the marine flora and fauna to differ from the Indonesian norm. This isolation now means that the bay plays host to a number of endemic marine species and perhaps even more interesting is the fact that many normally deeper dwelling animals

can be found here in relatively shallow water, creating a topsyturvey reefscape which gives us a chance to observe and photograph these otherwise unreachable creatures.

 

Starting and finishing at Manokwari, the 11-night Cendrawasih Bay cruises offers 10 days of spectacular and varied diving, with between two and four dives per day and many fascinating land excursions along the way

FLORES TO ALOR: REEFS, CRITTERS AND FIRE BREATHING MONSTERS

 

The Flores-Adonara-Solar-Lembata-Pantar-Alor island chain in Indonesia lies toward the eastern end of the long Nusa Tenggara archipelago, 160 nautical miles directly south of the large island of Sulawesi and 500 nautical miles east of Bali. These scenic and highly volcanic islands lie eight degrees below the equator and enjoy calm blue seas and warm sunny weather throughout most of the year. For selected cruises during 2014, 2015 and 2016, Dewi Nusantara will be setting out on dive adventure programmes east of Flores to the Alor region. Rarely visited by dive liveaboards the dive sites here feature crystal clear visibility, exciting drifts along sheer walls, dazzling coral gardens and some classic critter dives combining to give you one of the most prolific and diverse marine environments in Indonesia. The Dewi Nusantaras dive crews were among some of the first to visit here.

 

Dewi Nusantara will be revisiting the Flores and Alor region for selected cruises in this fascinating part of Indonesia to bring you the very best that this unusual and pristine region has to offer. Our Flores and Alor cruises will start and fi nish in the harbour town of Maumere, north Flores, These 11-night cruises off er 10 days of spectacular and varied diving, with between two and four dives per day and many fascinating land excursions along the way

SE SULAWESI & EAST NUSA TENGGARA: DUAL DREAM DIVE DESTINATIONS

Dewi Nusantara will head out on some unique dive cruises that will take in several of Indonesia’s most colourful, interesting and diverse dive

destinations; Buton, Wakatobi, Alor, Lembata and East Flores. These trips arescheduled one way in two directions - starting and fi nishing in two diff erent locations (Buton, South Sulawesi and Maumere in Flores) - off ering a splendid cross-section of Indonesian scuba diving: dazzling coral reefs and walls in crystal clear water, as well as a many cryptic critter dives - some that only liveaboards like Dewi Nusantara can reach. These “combination

cruises” are split into two diff erent sections: Buton/Wakatobi to the north and Alor/Flores, part of Nusa Tenggara in the south. On the surface, these combined destinations are very different, with the Alorto- Flores section featuring towering volcanoes almost everywhere you look, while at Buton and Wakatobi, the change in scenery is dramatic and we are now faced with idyllic coral atolls and surface reefs rising up from the deep Banda Sea.

The mid-point is punctuated with a bang as we focus on a live volcano display: the permanently erupting sea borne monster of Komba 30 miles north of the Lembata coast - a red hot experience both under and over the water. Underwater, both areas off er supreme reef and wall diving. The walls of Alor, in particular, plunge down to the extreme depths from shallow calm coral gardens, while the Wakatobi region has been described by Jacques

Cousteau and the crew of Calypso as being “one of the best reef systems we have ever dived”. Divers and photographers who favour the “little things in life” have a lot to look forward to as well: there are several absolute world class and rarely dived critter sites at Buton, Alor and Lembata to keep even the most discerning macro snapper enthusiast happy. Now let’s take a virtual run-through of the major areas we will be visiting, running from north to south, Buton to Maumere: Buton After landing at Baubau airport in south Sulawesi, it is just a short trip to Wajo Bay where Dewi Nusantara

will be moored and ready to start your trip. Buton Island and particularly Wajo Bay is becoming increasingly popular as a diving destination in its own right. Wajo Bay forms a natural harbour on the south side of Buton and is one of the latest in a long line of hotspots for critter diving fanatics. With a gently sloping sandy bottom and eight nautical miles across at its mouth, this busy bay features several world class muck sites and has all the required components to become one of Indonesia’s major critter hunting havens with all of the major marine muck suspects present.

 

Between June and September 2014, Dewi Nusantara will be cruising and exploring the seas between Buton, south east Sulawesi to Maumere, on the north coast of Flores. These trips are scheduled to run one way from two different directions. Firstly, north to south from Baubau on the island of Buton, then to the Wakatobi region before crossing the Flores sea to visit Alor, Pantar and Lembata and fi nishing at Maumere in Flores. The other option runs south to north and starts in Maumere, reversing the fi rst route and fi nishing at Buton, fl ying home from Baubau.

MALUKU: TRAVEL BACK IN TIME ON A SPICE ISLAND ADVENTURE

The Moluccas, meaning in Arabic “Land of Many Kings”, or to give the region it’s modern name, Maluku, was the fi rst part of the Indonesian archipelago

to capture the imagination of european mariners and explorers. The natural beauty of Maluku is a picture perfect vision of a desert island paradise: powder white beaches, clear blue waters and gently swaying coconut palms. However, it was not for this that the explorers came; it was for a treasure that held the highest prices in the European markets at the time: rare spices. In the 16th century, cloves, nutmeg and mace were the highest

priced commodities a seafarer could lay his hands on. Of course where market prices are involved, conflict soon follows, and the Portuguese, British

and more particularly, the Dutch, were very ambitious in getting their share of the highly profi table spice trade. At that time nutmeg, and its derivative, mace, could only be found on the tiny Banda Islands, in the middle of the deep Banda Sea, and cloves only grew on the two volcano islands of Tidore and Ternate close to the west coast of Halmahera. The Maluku region still features many relics of the fortifi cations erected to protect the invaders’ interests, as well as other imports of western technology such as gas street lighting in Banda, leaving visitors with an absorbing insight into a long distant time. Covering a huge area and including the Banda Sea, the three major areas of Maluku Utara (north), Maluki Tengah (central) and Maluku Tenggara (south east) run along a north-west to south-east diagonal line from Halmahera, across Ambon and the Banda Sea, down to the Tanimbar and the Aru islands that lie off the west coast of the island of Papua - a stretch of over a thousand kilometres. Let’s take a more detailed look at these three different places: Halmahera Located in the northern section of Maluku and wedged between north Sulawesi and Raja Ampat is the island of Halmahera. Shaped like a mini Sulawesi, Halmahera, along with it’s satellite islands and islets is now fi rmly on the scuba travelers’ radar, and, along with her sisters, the Bacan islands, boasts some fabulous reef and sea mount diving as well as featuring the unexplored WWII shipwreck graveyard in the north at Kao Bay and others close to the island of Morotai. There are plenty of critter hunting sites around the the region too, particularly down the volcano island line of Ternate, Tidore, Raja, Moti and Makian. The Patiente Strait that runs between Halmahera and Bacan has some fi ne hard coral gardens, as do the reef systems at the southern end of Pulau Mandioli, while way out south east in the Halmahera Sea is the isolated island of Pisang (banana), which serves as a great stepping stone to Raja Ampat. Pisang boasts three rocky and current-washed sea mounts with fantastic

pelagic action, as well as some nice reef diving combined with pretty tropical island scener

AMBON

Cruising further south and nestled underneath the ominous presence of the massive island of Ceram, we come to Ambon. Ambon city itself is the central capital of the Maluku region, and the island, along with her neighbours, Haruku, Saparua and Nusa Laut, has for a long time been a fi rm favourite with adventurous divers the world over for its stunning outer reefs and abundant marine life. In recent years however, it has become a hotspot of a diff erent kind. With the rise in popularity of “critter” or “muck” diving, combined with the increasing ranks of new underwater photographers, the search is always on for the next - to quote the incomparable Ned De Loach - “honey hole”. In the harbour at Laha Ambon has one of the best, with several sites that are gaining favourable comparisons with the famous Lembeh Strait and not-yet-so-famous critter sites of the Alor region. The Laha site recently gained the attention of the world’s critter spotting afi cionados with the discovery, by Maluku Divers staff , of a brand new frogfi sh, the psychedelic (histiophryne psychedelica). This little fellow is coloured either yellow-brown or peach on pink and white stripes and bounces around the gravelly sandy bottom of this area of the harbour. Right next door in the harbour, technical diving is now being pioneered by Maluku Divers on the 137 metre long wreck of the Duke of Sparta, and research and exploration continues for more shipwrecks in the area. The Ambon region of Maluku now has the magical scuba diving trinity of reef, wreck and critter all within easy reach on her doorstep.

 

The Banda Sea

Cruising south from Ambon, the Banda Sea features the isolated atolls of Lucipara and Penyu, which rise up and out of the fi ve kilometre deep water to create amazingly isolated reef and wall diving. The volcano “island of snakes” at Manuk is another of Indonesia’s unique dives where, at times, literally thousands of banded sea kraits (snakes) swim, creating an awe inspiring (or terrifying depending on which side of the fence you sit concerning snakes) marine spectacle. On the eastern side of the Banda Sea, great diving can also be experienced on the reefs along the island chain that includes the Koon, Gorom and Watubela groups that extend to the south east from Ceram.

 

The scuba diving at the Banda Islands is greatly enhanced by the fact that the island group is surrounded by very deep water. The close proximity of deep water and isolated islands always produces something special underwater due to the upwelling of nutrients, and Banda is no exception. Current-strewn rocky sea mounts, vertical walls and technicolour coral reefs are the order of the day here and so are some great big fi sh habitats. Inside the harbour and due to the relatively recent eruption of Gunung Api (this literally means “fi re mountain” and is a generic term for any volcano in Bahasa Indonesian), divers can marvel at the fabulous new coral growth on the lava fl ow at the foot of its slopes. The shiny coal-black river running down from the mountain into the harbour - like many recent lava fl ows into the sea in Indonesia - is another testament to the way that nature takes a surprisingly rapid hold on a recently cooled and barren lava seascape.

THE FORGOTTEN ISLANDS

Our last call in Maluku, and located at the south eastern perimeter of the Banda Sea, are the Babar, Tanimbar, Kei and Aru islands, home of the

legendary Birds of Paradise. These isolated groups, sometimes known as the “forgotten islands” and rarely visited or dived by any operations, have only the Arafura Sea to the south before landfall in Australia, while the island of Wetar and the world’s newest nation of East Timor (Timor Leste) link to our Alor routes in the west. Dewi Nusantara is planning some exceptional exploration trips to these distant jewels in the future to cruise and dive where no man has ventured before – we will keep you posted on our progress.

MARINE KOMODO

The huge island nation of Indonesia is home to the world’s most prolifi c marine ecosystem and the Komodo National Park is at the epicentre of all this wild activity. Most world-class diving sites are usually formed by either unusual volcanic formations of undersea rock or extensive deposits of coral limestone, washed over by nutrient-rich marine currents. Fortunately during its evolution, the Komodo region of Indonesia has been blessed with all of this! This spectacular seascape is comprised mainly of volcanic sea mounts, pinnacles, walls and canyons, as well as fringing reefs, coral gardens, mangrove bays and sandy slopes, creating an unmatched variety of very diff erent and distinctive dive environments. Between the sea

mounts the vast coral reefs, often in shallow water, teem with unusual tropical reef animals. In fact, this area plays host to more than 1,100 diff erent species of fi sh. With a careful eye, even the most jaded observer can discover hundreds of new species of brilliantly colored marine life, plus an astounding array of invertebrates, some of which have never been properly identifi ed yet! The list of critter species is huge, and new and unusual creatures are being discovered here all the time. For fans of bigger animals, the dive sites with stronger currents play host to majestic mantas, sharks and many other larger pelagic species. Whales, dolphins and turtles have made the park a playground and even the rare dugong or sea cow can sometimes be spotted in the various

INDONESIA DIVE SITES

INDONESIA DIVING INFORMATION

With a rich history of kingdoms, conquests, colonialism, trade, and a dramatic geological history of seismic natural disasters, Indonesia has been blessed with an exhilarating kaleidoscope of cultures, traditions, languages and religions. These factors, combined with friendly people and a wonderful year round climate, make Indonesia the ultimate adventure vacation destination. Stretching for more than 5,000 kilometres along the equator between the continents of Asia and Australia, the Democratic Republic of Indonesia, the name deriving from the Greek words, indos (indian) and nesos (islands), is one of the world’s largest and most populous nations. Referred to by the Indonesian people as “air tanah kita” which translates to “our land and sea,” the planet’s longest and most diverse archipelago is a terrestrial and marine paradise. Consisting of over 17,000 mostly uninhabited islands, the oceans and seas that surround this waterborne nation are breathtaking, featuring every type of tropical seascape, from sleepy mangrove backwaters to crystal clear coral atolls, wave battered basalt cliff s and current surged rocky sea mounts, all of them teeming with life. The fl ora and fauna that can be found in this country of unparalleled natural beauty is boundless. Indonesia boasts some of the world’s rarest plants, trees and animals as well as home to the most diverse collection of marine life found anywhere else on earth.

 

Diving The Coral Triangle

All of Indonesia’s premier dive locations are inside what is known internationally as “The Coral Triangle”, and our majestic three-mast liveaboard

schooner, Dewi Nusantara, has the capacity and extensive experience needed to cruise, dive and explore the area in style. The Coral Triangle is a geographical term referring to a roughly drawn triangular area of tropical oceans and seas that include the coastlines of west Malaysia in the west, the Philippines to the north to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in the east and down to East Timor (Timor-Leste). At the centre of this triangle we fi nd the eastern half of Indonesia, putting this part of the country in what marine scientists refer to as the global epicentre of marine

biodiversity and a major centre for coral evolution, the “Amazon of the Seas”. Extensive watery mangrove forests provide nurseries for a large variety of marine species that have sustained the sea-faring island people of Indonesia for millennia. The sparkling coral reefs serve as breeding grounds for whales, dolphins and sea turtles and many fi sh, providing the seeding stock for the future of our planet’s coral reefs, over the years we have seen these reefs adapting and changing along with global trends. It’s little wonder that Indonesia is at the top of every tropical scuba divers’ “to do” list and Dewi Nusantara’s dive cruises can take you to all of the archipelago’s world famous locations: Raja Ampat, Halmahera, Ambon, the Banda Sea, Wakatobi, Komodo, Flores, Alor, the Forgotten Islands of Tanimbar, Kei and Aru and Cendrawasih Bay, the latest global “must dive” hotspot
