  • Go diving on the liveaboard in Indonesia

    Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world, consisting of 17,000 islands and 54,716 km/34,000 mi of coastline. Indonesia's coral reefs, mangroves, and seagrass meadows are home to thousands of fish species and hundreds of types of corals. Indonesia is one of the most famous spots to dive in the world. Here you will find destinations for all diver levels, from beginner sites with calm seas and shallow depths to sites appropriate for technical diving with strong currents and complicated underwater terrain. There are also lots of activities suitable for non-divers.
    Indonesia has many islands, this is precisely why liveaboard diving in Indonesia is so popular with divers from around the world. Liveaboards in Indonesia offer great shallow reef diving for those who have only started diving, as well as deep wreck, wall, and drift diving for experienced divers.
    Diving is available in Indonesia all year round. Your choice should depend on your diving level and your preferences on what type of marine life you would like to see. Water temperatures here are mostly between 25-27C/77-84F. However, while diving from a liveaboard in Indonesia, you may encounter strong, cold currents where the temperature may drop as low as 19C/66F, so make sure you have an appropriate suit and appropriate gear.

    In terms of equipment, it is recommend bringing a 3-5 mm wetsuit with a hood and a reef hook, which is essential for some dive sites.

    Aqualung/Spiro XR2 spares

    Thank you, but this is a discontinued item so this diaphragm is no longer available from Aqualung and the local dealers don't have it. Hence my post.
