Welcome To DIVE DAMAI
Redefining the concept of liveaboards.
Specialising in small groups receiving personalized service on purpose built traditional wooden schooners with a dive guide to guest ratio of 1 to 4. The most varied travel itineraries in the diving industry in the world’s best diving locations.
Dive Damai’s newest vessel, MY DAMAI II was constructed in Tanjung Bira, South Sulawesi by Pak Hadji Baso. Pak Hadji Baso is one of the most respected master boat builders in the traditional Indonesian boat building comunity of Bira and was also the builder of Dive Damai’s first vessel, MY DAMAI I.
MY DAMAI II has a deck length of 40 meters and a beam of 9 meters at its widest point. It has been built to an uncompromising standard and fitted out with all the latest diving, navigation and safety equipment to ensure that the level of service appreciated on our first vessel is maintained and, where possible, improved upon. The new vessel is slightly larger than the first ensuring three large outside deck areas with an outside dining facility, including the famous massage and spa treatment area and plenty of extra lounging and sunbathing space. The crew to passenger ratio is the same as the first vessel.
The below deck accommodation has been designed to accommodate single or twin occupants in a level of luxury not seen on another vessel in Indonesia. Each cabin boasts a private shower and head with a queen-size bed and a separate day bed. The cabins measure approximately 20sq.mts (225 sq.ft) each and have been finished with the highest quality furnishings. The stern staterooms are over 400 sq.ft each and boast their own private deck with loungers, a super-king size bed, day beds, two desks and ensuite shower and separate head.
The dive systems have been made even more accommodating on the new vessel. The dive station is larger and is served by large individuals rinse tanks. The camera room has been enlarged also. The 4 diver to 1 guide ratio that Dive Damai customers enjoy so much on the MY DAMAI I has, of course, been maintained and they have added 2 custom designed high speed tender boats.
The use of the term “Signature Service” reflects a philosophy, it refers to the quality of vessel and the level of service.
Luxurious and spacious, attentive and well trained, at your disposal at all times, with the best equipment, exquisite cuisine and an attention to detail and personal choice not found on any other. Signature Service means value for money, everything the crew do is aimed at making your experience more pleasurable.
The new rates reflect flexibility, you are now able to choose between an “A La Carte” or “All Inclusive” rate for your trip. All of the aspects of our Signature Service remain common to both:
Availability of top of the line dive gear to avoid paying excess luggage fees
Flexible menu choice
Complete set of toiletries at your disposal: shampoo,conditioner, body wash and body lotion
Ample individual space to work on your cameras
The Damai liveaboards are a place where the smallest details will be taken care of, where every customer is treated personally, where every wish is addressed promptly. A Signature Service above and below the water.
A LA CARTE
Diving A La Carte is a new concept created by Dive Damai and directed to give the ultimate personal service.
Logistics permitting Dive Damai allows you to dive where and when you wish. It is their aim to bring you as much of the underwater highlights of the itineraries as possible. They do not set dive time limits, they do not tell you that you cannot redive a dive site, they will bend over backwards to fulfill your every wish to return to a location time and again.
But it’s not just the diving…
They aim to satisfy every desire. That means you have a menu choice, if you have any special food requests the Damai crew will do everything in their power to ensure your favourite foods are onboard. A La Carte reflects your freedom to choose and our desire to fulfill.
Diving has been the Damai specialty for the last few years. With a ratio of 4 divers to dive guide, the largest camera station, a personal rinse tank or unlimited diving among their main features, they provided un unprecedented quality of service for their diving guests.
The Dive Damai explore remote areas, where seldom others venture, searching for the unique combination of diving and adventure that they like to share with their guests. Throughout the year, Indonesia offers some of the healthiest reefs on the planet, and certainly the most diverse waters.
