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..!

Just a taste of the trip….
Fly into Maumere in Flores and after a short journey enjoy your check out dive on the island of Babi. This is a good opportunity to get your eyes hunting for small creatures like hidden frogfish and colourful nudibranchs.
Dive in Waiwewong on the west coast of Lembata. This muck diving haven is set against the backdrop of the volcanos that line these islands. Rhino City is named for the much sought after Lacy Scorpionfish.
Beangabang is a small village on the south east coast of Pantar and an iconic macro dive destination. With a mixture of reef slope and black sand there are plenty of critters and juveniles to enjoy.
Once you arrive in Alor the entertainment continues with children from the local villages. The morning dives are on current rich reefs like The Cathedral and Tanjung Ela Lara. So keep your eyes open for pelagics before moving into Kalabahi Bay to dive the black sand slope at Mucky Mosque for the afternoon and night dive.
The volcano island of Pura will send visiting ladies selling their unique weaving. The current rich waters around the island have a variety of dives; Valley of the Clowns with its carpets of anemones; Pak Jans Village as a cool macro dive and Mandarin Wall for a dusk dive.
