Join Us for an Extraordinary Adventure Oct 12th -23rd, 2015
aboard the MV Pindito in Raja Ampat, Indonesia

pindito dive trip

While sailing through the MOST BIODIVERSE CORAL REEF AREA IN THE WORLD, photographers with all levels of knowledge (from beginners to experienced photographers and from point and shoot to DSLR cameras) will be helped to improve their photographic skills.

The Raja Ampat Islands are a truly natural phenomenon with enormous biological diversity. Without a doubt, these islands represent Indonesia's best diving area.

As you know MV Pindito is the only liveaboard dive boat operating in Raja Ampat with over 20 years of experience! http://www.pindito.com/pdf/pindito_raja_ampat1_e.pdf Pindito’s crew of 20 is unmatched for it’s dedicated service and diving knowledge of Indonesia and Raja Ampat in particular.

Our Pindito exploration will start in Sorong (Western Papua) and cruise up to Waigeo where divers can expect close encounters with mantas at a favorite manta cleaning station. In addition, Waigeo is a "macro photographer's dream" with every dive offering spectacular curios like pygmy seahorses, ghost pipefish, wobbegong sharks and countless other photogenic critters.

Between dives you will have the opportunity to join Zodiac tours during which you will enjoy unparalleled exposure to the beauty of these picturesque rock islands and waterways. Plus, you will get the opportunity to stroll on pristine shell-strewn beaches and to snorkel in crystalline shallows.

Tours are timed to best suite our diving and photography schedule. When not on special tours such as these you will have hands-on help with your camera set-ups and image critiques by Andy, who will generously share 30 years of underwater photography experience with you. You will also have ample time aboard Pindito to lounge while the crew pampers you with delicious meals, snacks, and drinks.
