Each trip is limited to 12 guests.

Special group airfare available.

Experienced Guides

We've spent over 22 weeks creating images on 4+ dives
per day in Raja Ampat over the past 6 years and know the
reefs and conditions necessary for optimal image making.

In 2004 we were able to get in 7 dives a day at several spots
by mooring on the dive site all day and also doing night dives there.

Kirk Cantrell and Mike Oelrich won 1st and 2nd place in
the International 2004 photo contest sponsored by the liveaboard.

See their award winning photos at:

Since 1999, Deb has written dive magazine articles; created
several websites for the area; has contributed photos to dive
magazines in Asia, the USA and UK; presented shows at DEMA,
Seaspace and UPS club meetings; and wrote the Raja Ampat
section of the Periplus Guide to Diving in Asia. Deb has
organized trips to Asia and the Caribbean since 1994.

This is not an exploratory trip. The ship?s captain has 6
years liveaboard experience in Raja Ampat too.

What You Will See

The goal for these trips is to get the guests onto the best reefs
for optimal image making and give them the freedom necessary
to create their images.

You will visit healthy reefs, unusual reef structures and
memorable dive sites in the area with the most diverse
marine life ever recorded.

Huge schools of fish: barracuda, surgeonfish, fusiliers, batfish,
sweetlips... macro creatures: blue-ring octopus, pygmy seahorses,
double ended pipefish, shrimp gobies, nudibranchs, and loads
of reef fish.

Plus, beautiful unspoiled topside scenery.
