South for Winter with                                              Duxy and Lawson Wood

 

Talk about value for money. Not only will you reap the benefits of sharing photo tips with Paul 'Duxy' Duxfield, but now the legendary Lawson Wood is on the same trip!

Lawson has made his passion his career and you can tap into some of the passion this November. He has published over 50 books including the Underwater Guide to the Red Sea, so he knows a thing or two. He is also a co-founder of the Marine Conservation Society, found of the first Marine Reserve at St Abbs and Eyemouth in Scotland and made history in becoming the first person to be a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society - and there's a whole lot more but we'll leave that to Lawson to share with you on the trip.

One last thing, Lawson has lived and worked in the Red Sea for many years so you can imagine the depth of knowledge and tales he has to tell. Join Duxy and Lawson on this unique trip - who knows when you'll get another chance!

To dive or not to dive? Indonesia has it all

| No TrackBacks

0918 Raja Laut side on sail spray2 (Medium).jpg

Whilst Indonesia is renowned for its magnificent diving it's not all about what's under the water. Land excursions are also available on our liveaboard holidays on Emperor Raja Laut.

Join us as we visit beaches that are perfect for a little cocktail party at the end of the day. Depending on the route, trip duration and weather conditions, we usually offer 2 - 3 land-based excursions for each of our trips.

Examples can include:

·         Komodo: Early morning visit by speed boat to either Komodo or Rinca Island for a 1 - 2 hour walk with a park ranger to see the Komodo dragons.

·         Raja Ampat: North: visit Aljui Bay Pearl Farm and climb Mt Pindito for picturesque and panoramic views of Wayag lagoon. An optional early morning visit to the 'Birds of Paradise'. Penemu look out and various lagoon tours by speedboat.

South: the caves on Misool.

·         Banda Sea: Half day visit to Banda Neira to see the nutmeg plantation, historic forts and small Maritime Museum.

·         Raja Ampat & Banda Islands: The Ambon to Sorong cruise is special because it takes in two magnificent regions in the one cruise. Beginning in Ambon we head to the Banda Islands (original Spice Islands) before rounding the east coast of Seram and rejoining the south and central sections of Raja Ampat. The Banda Islands offer the opportunity for some pelagic action, hopefully hammerheads too, before diving arguably one of the best dive locations worldwide, South Raja Ampat. This cruise will take in the Banda Islands plus the Southern and Central sections of Raja Ampat.

Read why this part of the world holds such an appeal
with words straight from a recent guest - thanks Sherry!

The Komodo National Park is world renowned for the excellent quality and variety of diving. In the north we have the black sands of the Sangeang Volcano with its critters and bubble flows and the reefs around Gili Banta. The south provides cooler temperatures with manta action and nutrient rich reefs with ocean flow from the Indian Ocean. The central section give you reefs and small islands teeming with life fed by the currents running between the islands of Komodo and Rinca.

Add to this the chance to see the famous Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat, beautiful beaches, look-outs to climb and you have a paradise both below and above the water.

Komodo

 

Our recent guest, Sherry Wright, loved her diving holiday in Komodo from Emperor Raja Laut...here's what she had to say:

"The Emperor Raja Laut is newly renovated and is in beautiful shape. The day-to-day operations including dives were run smoothly. The crew were all really helpful and friendly.

All the crew took turns helping with entering and exiting the dinghies, handling the equipment, and making our dives great. Sophie and Flo were superb hosts and divemasters. I loved that they sat with us for meals and hung around chatting with us when they didn't have tasks to do. I felt like they became friends.

My luggage including dive gear all got left behind in Bali and I was supplied with very new rental gear. I felt very supported as people chipped in to lend me things that I normally would have had. As for the diving, the sites were great! The reefs were some of the healthiest I've seen. Flo, Sophie, and Downey were very clear and specific about dive plans, entries, dealing with currents, etc. I was in Sophie's group, and I was amazed and grateful for her ability to spot the smallest little macro creatures and still keep an eye on the blue.

I had a fabulous week and highly recommend the boat and the Komodo itinerary."
