Welcome to our February 2016 Newsletter

The Sun has an appointment with the Moon!  
Impatient! This is where we are at....
In a few days WAOW will leave Sorong setting sail for Bitung, passing by Misool, Halmahera and Ternate. The final stage of this cruise will allow the privileged opportunity to experience the total eclipse of the sun. The Astronomers, Stephanie Godier and Michel Mayor, will join us for the entire cruise and share their vast knowledge of the universe with the passengers (presentations will be in French) providing evenings of conferences and star gazing. But of course, and during the day, the fantastic dive program will remain unchanged.

A few places still remain available. If you would like to join don't hesitate to contact us quickly as the date is very close.

For the February monthly newsletter, we will take you off the beaten track, to the Forgotten Islands and back to Cenderawasih Bay to dive accompanied by the majestic whale-sharks. And if you are in real need of some sun and bubbles, take full advantage of the last minute offers in place for the Celebes Islands in March and April.

The Forgotten Islands
An Indonesian Kaleidoscope   

From September 30th to the 12th of October 2016, we are proposing an exceptional itinerary from Maumere to Saumlaki, to discover the Forgotten Islands.
Ideally situated  at the gates of the Banda Sea, and to the East of the Sondes Islands, these volcanic islands rarely visited guarantee you a variety of diving in total exclusivity. This cruise of 13 days/12 nights will offer you a unique voyage discovering exceptional dive sites. Judge for yourself.

The Komba Volcano, with regular eruptions every 15 to 20 minutes.
- Gunung Api where the numerous sea snakes swim freely and the Hammerhead sharks patrol at this time of the year. Thresher and Silky sharks can also sometimes be seen in these waters.


- Wetar and Romang, for the giant sponges, vertical drop-offs and visibility often perfect.


- Leti, Bobar and Damar, with their important concentrations of fauna, whether pelagic or endemic. If chance is on your side, stand by for a true festival of underwater life.


- Tanimbar and Alor, and their muck dives, rich in Macro fauna: pigmy sea horses, bobtail squid, ghost pipe fish, tozuma shrimp, mimic octopus, and many more.


Cenderawasih Bay 
Returning in 2017

Last November the whale-sharks of Cenderawasih Bay offered us some amazing experiences to the thrill of all of those aboard. We have therefore decided to return in January 2017.

Only two cruises are on offer of 10 nights, between Biak and Manokwari. (or visa-versa)

If the concentration of whale-sharks under the "Bagans" of the local fisherman is the highlight, you will also have the opportunity to dive Japanese wrecks in Manokwari and Mansinam, the coral reefs of Numfoor, and the exterior Atolls in the region of Biak.
