Our best trips. Annually since 1999!

For 2011 at the request of repeat guests, I've made the 100% Raja Ampat trips a bit longer to give us time to venture
into more of Raja Ampat than on the 11 day trips. The few days extension will give us the flexibility to visit some
different areas while still finding time for "open deck" days and our favorite sites.

We surveyed several new dive sites in December. Some were excellent with corals, fishes and underwater landscapes
like we saw back in 1999 and 2000 in Raja Ampat. Great photo & video ops. We'll be including some of these new sites
as well as our old favorites on the 2011 100% Raja Ampat trips.


100% Raja Ampat Trips Schedule:

Oct 24 - Nov 7, 2011, 14 days & nights, $4995
Nov 11 - 22, 2011, 12 days & nights, $4295




In addition I've chartered for 11 days/nights from Ambon - Banda Islands - Raja Ampat (Sorong) as a lower priced,
one-way excursion for divers who prefer a longer cruise (and lower price!).

Ambon - Banda Sea - Raja Ampat Trip Schedule:

Oct 10 - 21, 2011, 11 days & nights, $3755

-------------------------------------------------------

On every City Seahorse charter we will try for 4+dives/day. Unlimited diving time. Staying at the good sites for
photography, video and adventure and missing the bad sites. If you have favorite sites from a previous trip, please
tell me and we will try to work them into the itinerary.

Our limited participation trips cost just a bit more this year than other trips that carry full loads of divers - but we
offer lots more dives, more time underwater and more personal attention. I've had to increase the price per person
just a bit to cover the cost of the experienced cruise director, extra experienced dive guides and their airfares
& expenses!

These Raja Ampat diving trips are also appropriate for experienced divers who are not photographers. Single cabins
are available. Many of our guests are solo travelers. There is no extra charge for a single diver if willing to share
a cabin.

Recent guests published underwater photography books and popular retail calendars from just one trip.

Update: Oct 10-21 and Oct 24-Nov 7 no longer have space available.

Nov 10-22, 2011 12 day trip - still has some spots available - the last one I have in 2011 with any space.

I've run trips to Raja Ampat since '99. One of my primary goals in organizing these trips is to get our divers to and from Sorong without a hitch; on time for the ship to sail at 9am on departure day; everyone with all their luggage.

I've read many posts of problems and many questions on the forums about travel to Sorong. If divers in my groups pay attention and go with my suggestions for their travel, they are unlikely to have any problems and will be there ready to enjoy their dives.. including 3 on the trip's departure day!

I may have 2 spaces on the 14 day Oct 24-Nov 7 trip available.
This one has been full for ages, but some divers have a problem
and may not be able to make the trip. People on the wait list
have booked something else.

Please contact me for info on either the
Oct 24 - Nov 7, 2011 or the
Nov 12-22, 2011 trips.

Depending on the situation I may be able to offer a discount.
