A Season Comes to an End Saison s'achève...
With one more cruise from Maumere (Flores) to Bali, we will be preparing WAOW for the maintenance and dry dock period, until mid-June, to get her back into the best shape for next season.
As the season comes to an end we look back on the 26 cruises covering 11'000 nautical miles, with exceptional diving and encounters. Once again the Indonesian Archipelago has lived up to its reputation of exceptional cruising grounds and some of the best diving on the planet.

New Divers Onboard
For some time now, they also wanted to blow some bubbles. Due to an extended stopover in Maumere (Flores), several members of the crew took advantage of the possibility to do their Open Water Certification.
Our cruise director, Reto Schlaepfer, gave them the full course all in Indonesian. A big round of applause to both students and teacher and we wish them all best as new divers.
If you wish to congratulate them as well, simply drop a few words on our Facebook page
