Discover the uninhabited and unexplored islands of this world-class marine habitat aboard a liveaboard diving boat.
Straddling the equator and stretching across 3,500 miles of the Pacific Ocean, Indonesia is a country of more than 17,000 islands. Many of these outposts are so remote that they support little or no human habitation. As a result, Indonesia is home to many of the world's absolutely finest scuba diving locales, with new sites still to be discovered. Indonesia's unique location places it at the epicenter of our planet's marine biodiversity, with more than 3,000 different types of marine life. Its waters are home to everything from great whale sharks to the world’s tiniest seahorses.
Indonesia's scuba diving is best reached by liveaboard dive boats, because they enable divers to visit multiple islands. Indonesia has a superb array of liveaboard diving destinations, from the famous islands of Komodo Marine Park and the historically important Banda Sea to Raja Ampat and Fak Fak in the western half of Irian Jaya. Liveaboard diving boats most likely depart from Benoa Harbour.
