Bali liveaboards: Enjoy the island and an amazing diving cruise

November 24th, 2015

The beautiful Bali liveaboard Indo AggressorBali liveaboard diving is something many divers are keen to do when they visit Indonesia.

There are many liveaboards that start or end their trips at Bali’s Benoa Harbour so you can enjoy all the fun of island and still explore the rich waters in the best way possible – by liveaboard. Depending on itinerary you can start with a few of Bali’s best dives on the east coast of the island before heading east towards Komodo National Park.

At the time of writing, the options below are an uptodate selection of liveaboard cruises that operate Bali to Komodo, Komodo to Bali, or Bali to Komodo to Bali cruises

Indo Aggressor: Bali–Sumbawa-Komodo. 10 or 11 nights Komodo cruises which in fact begin diving at Bali’s sites: USS Liberty Wreck, Seraya and Tulamben Drop Off. These unusual trips dive a little of Bali before proceeding on to Moyo island and ultimately the Komodo National Park. The ports used are Bali and Labuan Bajo.

Mermaid I: Komodo Island-Sumbawa. 9 nights, Bali to Komodo to Bali (so you don’t need an internal flight). You can enjoy up to 28 dives on these Komodo tours.

Mermaid I is one of the liveaboards operating out of BaliMermaid II: Komodo Island-Sumbawa. These cruises are normally 7 nights long and are either Bali to Bali, or Bali to Maumere, depending on the departure date.

WAOW: Komodo Island-Sumbawa. 11 nights and 33 dives on Komodo safaris operating between Bali and Labuan Bajo, or Bali and Maumere.

Pindito: Komodo-Sumbawa-Bali. Occasional 11-night trips with 38 dives on Komodo cruises operating between Bali and Maumere.

So don’t limit yourself to a few crowded dive sites in Bali with countless dive shops all rushing to the same spot. If you are a scuba diver you can get a taste of Bali and then hop on a beautiful boat and visit some of the finest dive sites in Indonesia. You won’t forget the amazing diving of Komodo National Park.

Maldives Emergency not to impact tourists

November 5th, 2015

You may have heard the news that the Maldives has declared a state of emergency for 30 days ahead of an anti-government rally. While the words ‘state of emergency’ never sound good, it is worth pointing out that this ought not to have any impact on tourists visiting the Indian Ocean state.

The Maldivian government (whoever it may be) knows what side its bread is buttered on. Tourism is of such huge importance to the country that nothing is allowed to interfere with international holiday-makers enjoying the islands and atolls of the country. So don’t be alarmed. The amazing dive sites of the Maldives are unaffected and your enjoyment of them will be too.

We have been notified by our operator partners that this is indeed the case and it is business as usual. So there is no need to panic. There is no cause for any change of plans and nothing is being cancelled by the operators.

Here is the official governmental notification…
