Diving Experience Required
For the cruises of Komodo and Raja Ampat, we recommend that you have at least 25 logged dives and the Open Water Diver certification. However, due to water conditions, the OW certification will not allow you on some of the dives.
For the cruises of Alor (Forgotten Islands), Banda Sea and North Maluku, we recommend 50 logged dives and the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.
Please note, if your last logged dive is more than a year ago, you will need to participate in a refresher dive.
