  1. Only Two Spots Left! “Simply the Best” Underwater Photo Expedition on the Damai II Liveaboard to Raja Ampat, Indonesia - January 11-22, 2015 Raja Ampat lies in the center of the Coral Triangle and simply has the finest diving in the world. Over 700 vibrant coral species are the backdrop for every image you will want to capture. This is more than ten times what you would find in the Caribbean. It also has the highest level of diversity of fish life in the world with over 1300 species. From Pygmy seahorses to giant mantas! We will visit muck diving sites, mangroves, piers teaming with schools of fish, manta cleaning stations, and of course every form of reef structure you can dream of. Raja Ampat is a diver’s dream realized. Join us for 11 days as we dive and sail these beautiful waters on board the Damai II liveaboard. The Damai II is one of the most luxurious liveaboards catering to diving photographers. The boat is limited to just 12 divers and caters to this smaller group with just 4 divers per guide. The boat also understands photographers; if the group wants to repeat a site, they will try to accommodate! The camera room puts to shame many you will find at dry land resorts. The word everyone uses to describe the Damai II is luxurious and for good reason. The two Master Suites are 400 sq ft and all suites are beautifully appointed. There are 3 outside lounging areas, one section dedicated to the Spa where you can get a massage. The food is simply some of the best you will find on a dive holiday. You don’t just “eat”, you “dine”. But beyond luxurious, the Damai II is functional, with generous storage for your dive gear, excellent pangas and crews. Your trip leader Jack Connick from Optical Ocean Sales will be available to help you with daily lectures on subjects ranging from strobe positioning to Photoshop Lightroom. Take part in as much, or as little, as you like. Included in your Package: • 11 Days/10 Nights on board the Damai II Liveaboard • UW Photo Presentations & Help • Beer & Pop onboard • Airport Transfers to/from boat Limited Space: 2 spots available in twin share cabin $6600/pp Not Included: Airfare RT Sarong Sarong, $100 for Nitrox, $100 Park Fee. We can help book air travel. $3300 non-refundable (transferable) deposit holds your spot! Call or write us today! Download our flyer here! *Final price may change due to fuel charges, taxes and surcharges not under our control. Optical Ocean Sales is a registered Seller of Travel in the State of Washington

  4. Due to a May 28 cancellation by one couple, I now have 2 spaces available for this trip. Either a full cabin (2 people in triple cabin), or if you travel alone either a space in a double share cabin, or at extra cost a guaranteed single cabin (you alone). Divers booked on this specific trip are from USA, Canada, Australia, NZ, Argentina and Italy - some are among the world's top award-winning photographers and some are beginners with compact cameras. Assistance with your photography and equipment is available, plus you will learn a lot from the other photographers on this trip. Raja Ampat Indonesia Liveaboard Trip - Nov 18-30, 2014 (Follow this link for Raja Ampat liveaboard dive trip prices, fees, & inclusions) 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 my Raja-Ampat-experienced team - topside and underwater and I'll be along to supervise everything. 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. Guaranteed single cabin available (extra cost). Route: Sorong - Sorong: see Sample Itinerary for Raja Ampat Dive Trip 12 guest divers maximum. Approximately 51 dives offered. Unlimited bottom time. Guaranteed Raja Ampat experienced team (cruise director, dive guides, photo pro, trip leader) Please read about it: Dive Trip Schedule Inclusions / Exclusions / Prices / Fees Raja Ampat Dive Trip Website City Seahorse Dive Support Team Diving Newsletter + Subscription Form Facebook Diving News, Photos from Dive Trips This trip departs Sorong Nov 18, 9AM, diving first (Nov 18) and last (Nov 29) days. Return to port Nov 29 approx. 9PM (overnight on the ship), depart Nov 30. Total 12 days of diving and 12 nights aboard the liveaboard ship. I ask all divers to arrive in Sorong on Nov 17 and overnight there so we can board the ship early on departure day and dive that first day. I am happy to provide assistance with your International itinerary to/from Indonesia and book domestic Indonesia flights, hotels and side trips for you, or make recommendations. For more information or to ask about booking - email the address on my sig file(see below). I'm currently out of the country (until June 19). My USA telephone is not being answered - so please email or message me!
  5. We have 3 spots left (1 male, 2 shared cabin) on the Rocio Del Mar live aboard for the February 15-23rd trip to Archipielago Revillgigedos (Socorro Islands). You must arrive in Cabo, Mexico on the 14th. Price of the trip is 3295USD. This trip was sold out, but 3 people had to drop out. This is a trip for advanced divers. Socorro is all about big animal diving; leave the macro lens and diopters at home! We expect to see giant Pacific manta rays, Silky Sharks, Hammer Heads (Great & Scalloped), Galapagos Sharks and White tipped reef sharks. Tigers have been seen occasionally. Additionally we expect to see dolphins, huge schools of jacks and giant tuna. We have chosen this time of year to go to Socorro (my 6th trip there) because we feel that it will give us the best opportunity to encounter humpbacks (and their calfs) on SCUBA (no guarantees :-).) If you are interested, please contact me and I will answer any questions you have regarding the trip. There is also a lot of information about the trip and the boat at www.rociodelmar.com. (some of my images from past trips are there also.) I would love to meet some new divers and share this incredible place with them.
  6. Special trips to North & South Raja Ampat 10 night trips on Indo Siren Liveaboard Trip dates: 20 Feb-2 March 2014 and 9-19 April 2014 Experience the richest reefs in the World! Raja Ampat is probably the hottest diving location on the planet right now, amazing scientists and divers alike, with its sheer number of species, big and small. In Raja Ampat screens of glassfish hide Tasselled Wobbegongs and at night the ‘walking sharks’ come out to play. Pygmy Seahorse cling to spectacular sea fans and there are unforgettable Manta congregations and Mushroom Island landscapes. Many underwater photographers testify that no where on earth can compete with Raja Ampat and they return again and again to produce stunning cover shots! Our special trips in 2014 will visit the very best of Raja Ampat - taking in the highlights of both North and South regions all from the comfort of the SY Indo Siren liveaboard.

  12. ONE SPACE - KOMODO 2013 SPECIAL LIVEABOARD CHARTER - June 14-26, 2013 Bima - Bima, 12 nights / 12 days Due to a recent cancellation, one space is available on this charter organized by two of City Seahorse's nicest repeat guests! All divers booked on this trip are quite experienced divers. Anyone hoping to join this trip should also be an experienced diver with 500+ dives. No beginners or unhappy / grumpy divers allowed on this one! The remaining space is a single cabin at no extra charge (double occupancy price). indonesia-liveaboard-schedule email or call DebF for details.
  13. Our best small group dive trips. Annually since 1999! TWO spaces still available (as of Jan. 24, 2013) The 14 day trips in 2011 & 2012 were very popular, so I've scheduled more for 2013. Due to a cancellation there are now 2 spaces free on the following trip: Nov 5-19, 2013 14 DIVING days &14 nights Route: Sorong - Sorong With 14 days, we are able to do several days of open deck diving (dive as much as you want and computer allows) while still having the flexibility that is only available on a round trip, to get around Raja Ampat for a huge variety of sites when conditions are best to dive them. Here are just a few images from previous trips (frame grabs from video). See my Raja Ampat Liveaboard Trips Facebook page for many more and photos from our 2012 trips. Check for the album of photos from my "Worst Dive" in a month in Raja Ampat, 2011 & 2012 (after a bit of time at home a dive with Mimic Octopus, pipehorse, nudibranchs, allied cowries or scads of fishes didn't seem so bad). Trip is Sorong - Sorong round trip, departure 9AM on first day (Oct. 19) - diving ASAP! Return to Sorong port late evening on night before departure. Visit the City Seahorse website for prices, dive trip inclusions, guest comments, sample Raja Ampat itinerary, maps, best diving season weather remarks and more. On the site you will find two types of trips. The City Seahorse Value Added Trips include many extras, as described below. On every CitySeahorse Value Added 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 or so-so sites. If you have favorite sites from a previous trip, please tell me and we will try to work them into the itinerary. CSVA charters are limited to 12 guests per trip. I add my own cruise director and dive guides so expect a guide to diver ratio of 1:3 or 1:4 depending on which tender you are on. By bringing my own experienced team, I can guarantee that the dive crew running your trip knows the area, the dive sites and where to look for the critters! Don't be surprised if your guide helps you position a strobe or notices that a strobe isn't firing, etc. They keep a pretty good eye on each diver. Our limited participation trips may cost just a bit more than some trips (and less than many) that carry full loads of divers - but we offer lots more dives, more time underwater and more personal attention. I try to keep prices in line even though I 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. Women traveling solo are guaranteed a female cabin mate. Special offers are posted in my newsletters. See an example newsletter. Divers who subscribe to my newsletter get first notice of special offers on the Value Added trips as well as others in Indonesia. I will help you organize your travel to meet the ship. After 14 years traveling to and organizing groups to Raja Ampat, I can find the most reliable, safest route for your trip. Although divers on these trips come from all over the world, I organize them to meet along the journey, at least at their arrival point in Indonesia, and travel together to Sorong where the cruise begins. Please check the CitySeahorse.com dive trip website or contact me, Deb Fugitt, for the most current details.
  14. Hello diving photogs. Just a heads up that the 100ft dive liveaboard "Ultimate Getaway" is running a special trip Sept 5 - 8, 2013 to dive some great SW FL offshore wrecks known to harbor schools of Goliath Grouper. These dates are right at the peak of expected aggregation maximum (new moon of Sept.) I was on this boat in early Oct of 2010 with David Doubilet shooting Goliath images & video on the Baja California wreck for 2 days. We saw dozens of clustered goliath eventhough peak aggregation was well over by then. That trip inspired me to work with Ultimate Getaway to plan a dedicated trip targeted to finding goliath schools on SW FL wrecks. Here is the link to details on the trip we came up with: 2013 Ultimate Getaway Goliath & Wreck Photo Trip Regards, Brian D.
  15. Just back from a 7 night liveaboard trip to the Maldives Central Atolls - great diving with lots of Grey Reef sharks happy to play for our cameras plus a baby Whale Shark, some Mantas and a really unique night dive with hunting Whitetip Sharks, giant stingrays and free-swimming morays! There's a full trip report and tons of photos on our website Here's one of our favourites!
  16. CRITTERS & NUDIBRANCH EXPEDITION: 22 SEPT TO 3 OCT 2012 After the huge success of last years nudibranch hunt we just had to do the trip again. On our 2011 expedition we found 483 different species of nudibranch, the challenge has been set! If you are a nudi nut, a die-hard brancher, this really is the trip for you. It’s not just nudibranchs of course, when you slow down and scour a range of habitats for seas slugs you can be guaranteed to find a whole host of other critters you would otherwise have missed. If you love nudibranchs and critters this trip is not to be missed !!!!!A recent cancellation has meant space has opened on this exciting trip!!!! For more info check out: http://www.diving4images.com/trips-services/trips/critter-nudibranch-2012/ Please mention Wetpixel in your request. WHERE? We will be diving mainly around the critter rich volcanic black sand island that just about every diver loves so much – Sangeang. During this trip we will also have one or maybe two days exploring for new critter sites on northern Sumbawa. The last couple of days will be spent in the bay of Bima where there is some great muck-diving to be found. WHY WITH DIVING4IMAGES? Graham is the founder and director of Diving 4 Images. He is Diving 4 Images main guide & expedition director who like to run pretty much every trip we organise. It is Graham who will be personally showing you the best dives in Indonesia, sharing his experience, knowledge and passion for the underwater world when you join a Diving 4 Images trip. Since founding Diving 4 Images, Graham has worked with some of the best photographers and film-makers in the business, becoming the dive guide of choice for many well known professionals. Its not just about the professionals though, Graham enjoys nothing more than leading groups of enthusiastic non-professionals who share his passion. Indeed Graham is equally at home taking a BBC camera crew to remote locations to film sea-snake behavior as he is leading a group of enthusiastic nudibranch nuts as they search for rare specimens for no other reason than their own pleasure.
