Beyond Komodo 2020

Ceratosoma magnifica nudibranch often seen on one of our great sites on this route…

Back to do old favourite critter exploration – The Beyond Komodo Critter Cruise, this time with a twist…

The added twist of being able to go and check out a new hotspot for whale sharks too. Yes, whale sharks are now beyond Komodo too!

Our route is going to start us off in the great critter diving hotspot of Bima Bay on Sumbawa Island. Here we have a few killer sites though we may just anchor up and dive one site all day, it really is that good. We are going to visit one of Indonesia hottest small volcanic islands for critter diving, Sangeang Island which is north of Sumbawa. We will check out whalesharks and do more critter hunting in a new hotspot if weather allows before heading down into the super famous Horseshoe Bay for some of Indonesia’s most colourful critter diving and also awesome black sand critter action too!

Dive Boat
Damai 2 is going to be our platform for this trip. With probably the highest level of service for small dive groups of any dedicated dive boat in Indonesia. Great dive guide ratio’s of 4-1, huge cabins, great food and much more…

Alami Alor is a really lovely true boutique dive resort.  Alami Alor really impressed me when I first visited and I’ve been back numerous times since.  Max and Lauren have thought of just about everything that a great resort needs and should have.  With the addition of excellent food and even good choices of wine which is rare to find at Indonesian dive resorts never mind one in such a remote location.

The location of Alami Alor is well protected in the bay of Kalabahi, which happens to be right at the heart of some of Alor’s best critter diving too.  As usual I always enjoy places with good house reefs and Alami Alor has a house reef for those who want to get in even more dives and make a few shore dives.
