Archipelago Expeditions, operator of the Adventurer II, will cease operations as of Dec 20th 2010. The Adventurer II hit a reef and was written off last month and the subsequent replacement, the Sea Safari III, also hit a reef and sank 11 days ago. Those who have trips booked etc can garner further information here:

I'd like to extend my condolences to the staff and crew of the Archipelago group and wish them the best of luck in their new endeavors.

Is Maluku Divers under Archipelago Expeditions? If so, is it also affected? Thanks!
