SY Indo Siren Itineraries
Embark/Disembark: Bima Bay, Sumbawa
Airport: Bima Airport (BMU)
Depart from Bima where there is excellent muck diving at the “Unusual Suspects” dive site. Day 2 is at Sangeang island before cruising into the Komodo national park. Diving on day 3 is at Gilli Lawa Laut and Batu Bolong where strong currents can be experienced, bringing with them grey reef and white tip sharks and schools of snappers and fusileers.
Indo Siren trips include a land excursion at either Rinca or Komodo islands to hunt for Komodo Dragons before cruising southwards to Nusa Kode where in the shelter of Horseshoe Bay are numerous dive sites incluing Cannibal Rock, Torpedo Alley and Yellow Wall of Texas. Across the strait on the south of Komodo Island a day is spent at manta alley before returning northwards once again to dive sites that were not visted during the southward journey. The final day is spent in Bima Bay, where the calm waters offer the perfect spot for some kayaking.
Embark/Disembark: Sorong Harbour
Airport: Sorong Airport (SOQ)
Departing from Sorong the S/Y Indo Siren cruises southwards towards Misool, stopping for “muck” dives on the dark sand slopes of Batanta where its critters galore!
Then spent up to 3 days diving a variety of sites in the Misool area for their stunning corals, including Boo Windows and Gorgonian Passage where sea fans dominate the scenery.
Heading back northwards dive around Fam Penemu & Yangeffo islands. Here we find the site of Citrus Ridge, where carpets of brightly coloured soft corals can be found close to the surface which, illuminated by natural sunlight, make this dive site spectacularly beautiful.
There is time for snorkelling in the mangroves and a visit to tiny Airborek Island along with a dusk dive at the pier before heading on to Mansuar for some manta ray action at Manta Sandy.
In the Dampier Strait there are fish in more numbers, shapes and sizes than anywhere else in the world. Not only are there numerous species, but all the levels of the food chain are well represented, from pygmy seahorses to larger pelagics. The most famous sites include Cape Kri and Sardine where speedy drifts can be expected.
The reefs in Raja Ampat just buzz with life! Manta rays, wobbegong sharks and epaulette sharks can all be found in the waters of the Four Kings.
