OUR BELOVED SEAS TRIP REPORT | NORTH RAJA AMPAT, INDONESIA

In the darkened salon of Dewi Nusantara on the last evening of the trip, Martin and Kelly were sharing their fantastic images taken over the past eleven days.  Having this opportunity to see a collection of pictures from the trip gave me a real sense of the amazing diving we'd been lucky enough to experience.

OUR BELOVED SEAS TRIP REPORT | ALOR TO WAKATOBI, INDONESIA

I'm just back from another fantastic charter aboard Dewi Nusantara, around some of Indonesia's best dive spots.  Like the previous trip, we visited some of our favourite sites in Alor but this time we then headed north to finish up in the Wakatobi chain of islands.  I have a long history with Wakatobi and was very excited to be back diving the area's fantastic reefs.

OUR BELOVED SEAS TRIP REPORT | ALOR & WETAR, INDONESIA

We have just returned from the inaugural 'Our Beloved Seas' trip aboard the beautiful, Dewi Nusantara.  We were pleased to be joined by so many old friends on this first trip, as well as welcoming several new faces too.  Our eleven night itinerary started in Maumere on the Indonesian island of Flores and took us to dive sites on the islands of Kawula, Pantar and Alor, as well as further east to the rarely visited island of Wetar.
