Diving Holidays and Liveaboards to Bali, Komodo
and Raja Ampat Irian Jaya, Indonesia
Bali and Komodo are situated in the Lesser Sunda Islands (otherwise known as Nusa Tenggara) which is a west - east stretching chain of smaller islands located towards the southeastern tip of the Indonesian Archipelago.
The reefs stretching alongside Nusa Tenggara are mostly well preserved and are vibrant, colourful reefs teeming with an incredible variety of reef fish and invertebrates. Larger pelagics are often spotted amongst the reef fish, including turtles, White-tip and Black-tip Reef Sharks, dolphins and occasional pods of Pilot Whales. Much of the reef is within shallow water allowing maximum bottom time to explore the crevices and bommies that adorn this region.
Moving eastwards from Bali is the island of Satonda, the reef here gently descends to a sandy seabed and is adorned in a variety of hard and soft corals, sponges and sea fans. Divers can explore ravines and caverns for nudibranchs in every colour, decorator crabs and shrimps of every type, a macro-photographers paradise! Sandy Chute at Satonda has an exquisite bommie that is shrouded in a wall of reef fish, the Nusa Tenggara region is recognised for approximately 1,000 fish species and over 250 reef building corals, many can be seen here at Sandy Chute.
The diversity of marine species increases as you move eastwards, taking in Gili Banta you may encounter a number of reef sharks, rays and turtles swimming amongst the mass of reef fish. The coral formations at Gili Lawa Laut are home to a number of pelagics and small critters displaying the vast diversity of this region.
Within Komodo National Park the dive sites include Larry's Yellow Wall, an exquisite parallel yellow-clad wall that you can dive in-between, taking in the corals in every shade of yellow, invertebrates and reef fish at close proximity. The pinnacle, Cannibal Rock within Horseshoe Bay, rises to within a few metres of the surface and is covered in hard and soft corals and Sea Fans, if you look closely enough you may have the pleasure of seeing the rare and elusive Pygmy Seahorse. Larger creatures are also attracted to the pinnacle, tuna and oceanic jacks can be spotted formidably scanning the reef.
Within South Komodo is a site famous for its Manta Rays, Toro Langkoi with its imposing underwater rock formations is often a home for these magnificent creatures. At the other end of the size-scale crinoids, nudibranchs and critters are most common within the waters of Sangeang, it is still an active volcano that recently spewed lava into the seas creating warm offshore springs teeming with new life.

The Alor Archipelago
Dancer’s ‘’East of Flores’’ itinerary allows the adventurous diver
to explore the Islands of the remote Alor Archipelago. These Islands
are surrounded by pristine blue waters with easily accessible reefs,
drop-offs, caves and valleys that are teaming with healthy corals
that span the colour spectrum and create the perfect environment for
underwater exploration. The currents that flow through the straits
which connect the Banda and Savu Seas create thrilling drift dives
that attract large animals such as whales, tuna, sharks (including
hammerheads), giant groupers, eagle and manta rays, napoleon wrasse,
schools of big eye jacks, mola mola and other pelagic fish. In the
Pantar Strait between Alor and Pantar pilot-whales and dolphins are
common as they pass between the Islands during their seasonal
migration to the Pacific Ocean.
On the quiet
tranquil reefs that surround the Islands, literally hundreds of
species of fish play hide and seek with divers as they dart in and
out of the colourful soft and hard corals just waiting for divers to
swim by and identify.
nature, sand and rubble areas create the perfect environment for
black sand diving allowing divers and underwater photographers to
unlock a goldmine of fascinating creatures.
topside is just as picturesque as these small rugged Islands are
dominated by jagged mountains and steep valleys. A trip ashore will
introduce guests to the local culture, steeped in tradition and
provide the opportunity to purchase some of the best Ikat weaving in
eastern Indonesia. Due to its remote location, a lack of
infrastructure on land keeps tourism and development limited while
the adoption of sustainable fishing practices has allowed the marine
environment to flourish.
The Alor region
is recognised as some of the best ‘unknown’ diving in Asia and is
surrounded by clear water where the visibility can reach more than
40 meters, with the water temperature reaching up to 28 degrees on
The MV Pindito offers cruises to the
Komodo National park and to Irian Jaya (Raja
Ampat), as well as an
awesome adventure-diving tour, which lies in between these two regions, twice a year. Pindito's
experience of the region goes back to 15 years and has cruised Raja Ampat years before any other liveaboard was there.
The Swiss owners guarantee a unique combination of comfort and the ambience of the characteristically Indonesian way.
Recent renovations have ensured that Pindito remains the first choice for diving the remote waters of Indonesia.
Dates are booked years in advance. Pindito was launched in the Indonesian Sea in March 1992. After many years and thousands
of dives, Edi, Pindito's skipper/owner and his crew have gained
unrivalled knowledge of the best dive sites in Eastern Indonesia, namely West Papua (Raja Ampat), the Moluccas, Nusa Tenggara and Bali
/ Komodo. Their expertise and dedication to this beautiful region guarantees an unforgettable liveaboard experience.
Pindito has all the lines of a classic wooden sailing vessel. The wooden and traditional constructions of the Pindito emboss the cosy and familiar atmosphere on board. The infrastructure ensures comfortable living for all guests. The lounge is air-conditioned and spacious.
The succulent cuisine is influenced by international and above all Indonesian (or Asian) dishes. Breakfast is served in two
servings. A little breakfast before the first dive, with the main breakfast-buffet ready after
your first dive of the day.
Lunch and dinner are always a highlight and are mainly influenced by Indonesian or Chinese cuisine.
Meats and fish dishes with different side-orders separately are
always available and vegetarians catered for.
Desserts and Sweets as a special treat for everyone. In between
dives the crew serves biscuits and cakes and other snacks. You will
never go hungry.
At any time you can have tea, coffee or a cool drink out of the fridge. Drinking water is available all the time too. After the last dive you may enjoy alcoholic drinks for free (except wine, which has to be paid

The diving is organised from one of the 4 Zodiacs. The Crew carries your gear from the
motrher vessel onto the zodiacs, so all you need to do is show up for the dive! Pindito diving instructors and dive guides look after a safe and comfortable diving operation. All dives are guided for safety and comfort reasons.

Underwater photographers and Videographers have access to on board computers to
perfect your digital records and burn your shots on CDs or DVDs (please bring your own blank CDs and DVDs along!).
A Typical Diving Day
After our nourishing breakfast the assembled dive equipment is carried to the zodiacs by the crew, so you’ll never be hassled by hauling around your gear. After a short ride by zodiacs, you’ll dive into the undersea world. Throughout the whole dive the zodiacs will accompany you for comfort and safety reasons, which are both highest priorities. Back on the Pindito, refreshing drinks and delicious
snacks await. Exchange your diving experiences, while sipping a cool drink and
watching the videos and pictures taken during your last dive. Usually four dives a day are scheduled: the first one in the early morning (about 07.30 am), the second in the late morning, the third in the afternoon (about 02.30 pm), and after dinner you can go for an
exciting night dive. All dives are always dependent on the weather. On the day of arrival and departure there are no dives on the program for safety reasons
and no alcoholic beverages are served before the last dive of the day!

also where you can watch the best pictures and video of the day. Games are
also available as well as well stacked library of books and DVD's.
Dive & Sundeck
The Pindito is 33 meters long and 8,5 meters wide vessel, and offers lots of comfort and space on board. Briefings, and the whole diving operation leave room for those who
would rather stay on board relaxing in deckchairs.

stewards in the main salon. Two nights during the cruise we move our
tables and serve dinner under the stars on the bridge deck.
