  • South Lombok: For well-trained divers who want to experiment the Hammerhead quest!
Tailor made trips in one of the most beautiful archipelago of Indonesia! Diving in the best spots ranked 5*, trekking some mounts to reach amazing view point, visiting the famous Komodo dragons or swimming with the giant manta rays. Everyone can get the best of it! Underwater great visibility and rich marine fauna, prehistorical atmosphere on land and wonderful sight-seeing, this route is definitely a must to do!

The magical Raja Ampat archipelago located in the Coral Triangle is probably one of the last incredibly rich marine fauna and beautiful bird heaven on Earth! Birds of paradise and others tropical species can be observed there.

As for the underwater wonderland, get ready to enjoy while diving the most varied macro and some specific pelagics such as the unfamous Wobbegong (carpet sharks) or the resident Manta Alfredi!
