Diving in Cenderawasih Bay National Marine Park allows you to experience one of Indonesia's most exciting diving destinations. Dive Damai is one of the most experienced operators in the area as one of the original survey trips to this region was conducted from the decks of DAMAI I.
This liveaboard trip to Cenderawasih Bay is a unique way to spend hours diving or snorkelling with whale sharks around the local fishing platforms. It is not uncommon to see the sub-adult giants leisurely swimming around the platforms in only a few meters of water. This trip is not just about whale sharks. Cenderawash Bay and the Manim dive sites are rich in history from the many battles between Allied and Japanese forces leaving the sites littered with submerged aircrafts and shipwrecks. And we will explore some amazing remote reefs at Mapia close to the border of Palau.
The ship has seven staterooms with a choice of single cabins, twins, doubles or two spacious master cabins. All cabins are furnished with either queen or king-sized beds, and ensuite toilets with showers. The ship 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. Damai offers three local dive guides and one Instructor on board throughout your trip. With only twelve guests, this is a good 4:1 guest to dive guide ratio. The ship has two custom-designed high-speed tenders to get all guests to dive sites comfortably. The signature service includes personalized dive station and rinse tank, camera room and storage space for equipment, ala-carte dining catering to all food requirements, laundry and massage service on board, and the ship has an 18-member crew.
This trip will be featuring underwater photography pro Brandi Mueller to offer photo tips and sessions between dives. Bring you camera and be ready to shoot and learn..!

Cenderawasih is so much more than whale sharks! It is remote wilderness, endemics, world war wrecks, stunning topography and remote villages with friendly tribal locals. It is also a fabulous snorkelling destination if you have non diver friends or partners that usually have to stay at home when you go on a dive trip.
