Pindito Liveaboard

Pindito is the pioneer of diving in Indonesia, since 1992

The Pindito has the privilege of being the first diving boat in Indonesia, starting operations way back in 1992, when the East of Indonesia's archipelago was practically unknown to divers, an area devoid of any type of tourist facility for thousands of kilometers. Pindito is considered the training ship for divers of this region, the best guides often come from Pindito, the adventurous spirit that has characterized the history of this boat is still present among the crew and owners. And Pindito, even now, is dedicated to the exploration of new areas for diving in Indonesia.

2. DIVE CRUISE DESTINATIONS

Pindito has been dedicated for years to the exploration of the Indonesian archipelago, and the cruises take place in all areas of the Indonesian East: Komodo, Alor StraitRing of Fire, Banda Sea, Forgotten Islands, Raja Ampat and Triton Bay always looking for new destinations.

Pindito dedicates some cruises to the study of cetaceans, always present in Indonesian waters. During the months of the humpback whale migration, the boat follows their main route, seeking interaction with large mammals. The day during these cruises generally includes two dives in the morning while the afternoon is dedicated to the search for cetaceans, or vice versa.
