Concept and Overview

Concept and Overview

We offer open discovery and diving cruises for divers and non-divers. The boat is of minimal capacity (10-12 people maximum), each cruise is unique and tailor-made according to the composition of the group and their Desires. On board, the daily program is presented, discussed and confirmed with the guests every evening for the next day. We organize our cruise according to everyone needs, without compromise.

For divers, we offer up to 3 dives per day, sometimes 4 dives / day with a night dive.

Activities for non-divers and divers include snorkelling, kayaking and Stand up Paddling, trekking, exploring pristine beaches and villages, bird and animal watching. All locations are carefully selected, and all activities are guided, including snorkelling.

We also offer yoga / breathing / relaxation and snorkelling activities on request, with highly qualified and experienced teachers.

A wish list is sent to guests 2 months before departure and a detailed cruise program one month prior to departure. We also send our “cruise book” two months prior to departure, with a compilation of useful and practical information related to the Cruise.

Wherever your arrival airport, the cruise begins with your pickup at your hotel or at Labuan Bajo (Flores), Sorong (Raja Ampat) or elsewhere depending on your cruise destination. You are then invited to come aboard and sail to these extraordinary places. Despite most of the dates being fixed on our annual planner, we do offer tailor-made cruises for specifically requested dates which can be arranged depending on availability and the number of people booking. Remember to book well in advance to allow for the personal choice of dates.

Please note that our proposed itineraries may be modified by the captain of the boat and the cruise director depending on the weather, the sea and the conditions on board.
