Now Indonesia is finally open and almost ‘back to normal’ if you’re vaccinated (No COVID tests needed) – we’re hoping we can pick up a few small groups by tempting you with a summer Lembeh Strait diving deal! We’re still offering a 2:1 guest to guide ratio, so it’s a great opportunity to get a set of new images from the Lembeh Strait.

  • Book directly with us here
  • Book between 17th June and the 8th September 2022.
  • 23rd – 30th July already blocked for Photo Workshop.
  • Book 3 people and get the 4th free.
  • Minimum 5 nights stay.

How to get to us:

  • Singapore Airlines / Scoot combo from a major city near you.
    • Flies Singapore to Manado on Wednesday and Friday.
    • Can check your bags all the way through to Manado, and baggage allowances from your SQ leg are being honoured all the way to Manado by Scoot.
  • Garuda Indonesia to Manado via Jakarta.
    • London, Amsterdam, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur to name a few. You can get to us this way and also take advantage of a generous sports allowance on Garuda.
  • Emitrates/Qatar/Etihad to Jakarta, onward with Lion/Batik.
    • This is the cheapest long haul route to us, and is not particularly troublesome on the transfer times in CGK.
  • Combo with Bali is alway possible, with a multitude of connecting flights.
    • Remember, Indonesia did not really stop domestic travel during covid – so many of the historic routes never closed and always had good passenger volume – so they are still good value.

We have a healthy amount of guests towards the end of the year – which will allow us to bring back more of our wonderful staff, but until then we need a few small groups like this to keep the team diving and involved in doing what they love. If you know anyone that might be up for a group trip please share this post!

Life after C-19

We’re really hoping that this is the beginning of the end for restrictions caused by C-19. With that in mind as we reopen we would like to clarify a few points for making bookings.

Those of you that still hold a booking credit with us; thank you for your patience. You’ve helped us get this far. Your rates are fixed as per your invoice and you can contact Zee to rearrange your travel when you’re ready.

Demand is high for peak dates – please contact us to check!

Post C-19 Booking conditions

You must have insurance.

Indonesia allows boosted travellers to travel freely, those with no vaccine history must test before flying. There are no testing requirements to come and go from Indonesia if you’re vaccinated.

Our usual booking terms now apply as Indonesia has issued Visa on Arrival (VOA). This means if you can’t travel due to illness, you will need to claim from your travel insurance.

If Indonesia removes the possibility of travel to Indonesia / VOA system (closes borders to tourists). In this situation we will allow for postponement of your trip to a future date when the borders reopen.
