Great Value on Raja Ampat Indonesia Liveaboard Trip - Many Extras - Nov 18-30, 2014

 

2014 - Small Group Raja Ampat Trips

Small Group Raja Ampat Trips - Limited Participation - "Value-Added"

Great opportunity to maximize your underwater vacation time.

For many years (10?) I've organized what I call "Value-Added" liveaboard trips in Raja Ampat.

In many cases the Value-Added trip price is similar to a "standard" liveaboard trip, even though I limit the guests to only 12 divers instead of the 16 a normal full charter would take.

You'll experience the best Raja Ampat has to offer.   Amazing reefs teeming with life, manta rays soaring above your head, odd critters discovered in their hiding places in the algae and rubble are only some of the sights you'll see. Rock islands, pinnacles, narrow passages, deep bays - every dive site is unique - we know them well and can show you the best of everything.

You'll enjoy the assistance of my dive team, all of whom have several years experience working together to support my groups in Raja Ampat.

You'll also get more time underwater (unlimited bottom time + we try to offer 5 dives every day); be guaranteed to have guides who know the area and the dive sites; start your trip at 9AM on departure day (so that you'll get in an extra day of diving); enjoy an additional early light breakfast; and get help with your photography. There is more, but you can contact me directly to discover the rest.

Not a photographer, that's fine too. About 30% of my guests are not. I will organize you into a "dive team" of 3 or 4 with others who are not interested in photography, or are only casual photographers. You'll have your own dive tender and own dive guide!

On my trips you'll be guided by me and my Raja-Ampat-experienced team - topside and underwater.

U
nderwater Photography Assistance Included - formal or one-on-one for this specific trip will depend on number of divers who want instruction.

Nov 18 - 30, 2014 (available - 12 days trip)
12 Diving Days & 12 Nights on Board
 

Can promise same gender cabin mate if you travel solo so no single supplement.
Also, one guaranteed single cabin available (extra cost).

 
Nov 1 - 15, 2014 (full with wait list - 14 days trip - ask)

Ask about an inexpensive extension to visit Orangutans in Borneo or additional diving in Ambon, Lembeh, or Bali before or after the liveaboard cruise - all easily do-able before or after this cruise.

Great Deal on Raja Ampat Liveaboard w/UW photo instruction 14 days/nights Nov, 2013

15 August 2013 - 10:24 AM

This trip has been full for many months, but I now have 2 spaces available due to a cancellation (a couple, one requires surgery and will not be able to dive this fall).

 

See original post for the trip

 

Dates are November 5-19, 2013. 

 

Now offering a rather large discount - contact me for details - it is not advertised on my Raja Ampat dive trip website.

 

We board the ship at 9AM on Nov. 5.  Disembark morning of Nov. 19.  14 days diving, normally 5 dives/day except 2-3 on first and last days.  I bring my own team of cruise director and dive guides, all experienced in the area, who have worked with me for many years.

 

Since the original post I've again added underwater photography instruction to the trip. 

 

Don Silcock, photo/video editor of XRay magazine & published in multiple dive magazines will be on the trip and available for one-on-one help with photography & editing.  If enough divers are interested he will do a more formal class.

 

You must get yourself to Indonesia.  From there (Jakarta or Bali preferred) I can organize your travel to Sorong to meet the ship.

 

These are the only 2 spaces available on my special 14 day charters for 2013 or 2014 which are always limited to only 12 guests.
