Abundant marine life
Crystal Clear Water
On the Halmahera & Northern Moluccas itinerary we'll firstly spend a few days diving some of the best dive sites in Raja Ampat. Then the rest of the cruise will be spent exploring beautiful dive sites across the Halmahera and Moluccas Seas where visibility can reach up to 35 metres. Get ready to explore the areas around Raja Ampat, Dampier Strait, Misool, Halmahera Sea and the Lembeh Strait.

Launched in April 2011, the 40m S/Y Indo Siren was built on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi and is handcrafted from ironwood and teak (traditional to the area). You will find no other diving liveaboard as beautiful in Indonesian waters, and being built by divers for divers you can be rest assured that every need has been thought of and addressed.
Welcoming a maximum of 16 guests per week ensures that there is ample space to relax. The 8 cabins are divided in fixed doubles, fixed twin and 2 flexible twin/double cabins offering air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with hot water.
