Halmahera to Raja Ampat (Nov 25th - Dec 5th, 2020):
Diving in Halmahera offers a variety of underwater experiences including a spattering of wrecks in the north, some world class muck diving sites in the south and some of the best examples of hard coral gardens in Indonesia.

Halmahera liveaboard trips offer divers the chance to dive all corners of this remote and diverse archipelago. North of the Banda Sea and west of the world famous Raja Ampat lies this underpopulated island and its neighboring archipelago of volcanoes, sandy islands and mangroves. Visit the drop offs in south Bacan to see Barracuda, the islands of Goraici to enjoy schooling reef fish and bait balls attracting numerous hunters, tunas, and mackerel and hunt under the docks at Makian and Leilei for critters. This is definitely a hot spot and we believe the best is still to be discovered!

Our itineraries are always weather and diving condition dependent, and we hope to spend most of the trip in the Halmahera area. However this is shoulder season and we may have to adjust as necessary.

Departing from the Sultanate of Ternate, the Damai II liveaboard will make the first stop at the volcanic island and seamount of Tifore to enjoy huge schools of barracudas and jacks, reef sharks and some cool macro. From here you will island hop through the picturesque northern Maluku islands; from Makian into the archipelago of Goraici and its seamounts, great reefs and beautiful coral gardens with possible manta sightings. Then we'll go to Pulau Kusu with soft coral fans and lots of fish and onto Pasir Karo with sloping reefs with lots of big and small critters. Our expedition will continue to Bacan with its world class muck diving in the morning along the black sand slopes in front of the boat-building beach, and its schooling barracuda off the wall in the afternoon, reported to be the largest in Indonesia.
