LIVEABOARD HOLIDAYS IN INDONESIA
Indonesia consists more than 17,000 islands - most of them uninhabited, and many barely explored - and becomes the largest archipelago in the world with at least 80,000 kilometers of coastline. The special conditions of this strategic zone are the reasons for the fish population to be extremely abundant here.
Indonesia is a remote paradise that offers an incredible and quite unique underwater environment. The water is a constant warm temperature all year round - a perfect breeding ground for an incredible range of fish species. No two dives are ever the same.
Particularly good for macro lovers, Indonesia boasts pygmy sea horses, mandarin fish and more nudibranch than you could hope to record in a single trip. The coral is pristine thanks to the singular focus on conservation and the astounding health and richness of the marine life is a testament to this.
Over 3,000 fish species and 600 species of coral, steep walls, deep water trenches, underwater volcanic mountains, World War II wrecks, and an endless variety of macro life, scuba diving Indonesia is truly excellent and inexpensive. Indonesia is one of our most exotic scuba diving destinations with heavenly diving guaranteed. This area is home to some of the most luxurious liveaboard holidays you will ever experience. Liveaboards are the best option if you want to explore this beautiful region.
It is well worth thinking about having a few days on arrival to relax from your flight before your diving starts. Or why not combine 2 diving options and see more of this incredible country.
Some of the dives can be quite challenging, suiting only more experienced divers in exciting, bizarre and unpredictable currents.
What about passport and visa requirements?
Passengers travelling to Indonesia and Timor-Leste should have minimum six months valid on their passport from the date of return to the UK, plus one full page free. Hotel receptions may be required to take a photocopy of your passport for registration purposes.
What about vaccinations?
There are no compulsory vaccinations for travel, but we recommend protection against typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A and polio. Vaccination requirements are subject to change.
Is Indonesia a safe place to visit?
The vast majority of Indonesians are honest people with a strong sense of right and wrong. Tourism however does attract pickpockets and thieves the world over so to ensure an enjoyable stay, use some common sense. Be aware and don't leave valuables unattended.
What clothing should I bring?
Indonesia is hot and humid so light, loose cotton clothing is most recommended. When exploring the night-life, tight dresses, shorts, and miniskirts are no problem. However, naked sunbathing or topless appearance in public places is considered offensive, especially when you are outside the main tourist areas. You must wear conservative clothing when in temples or mosques.
