Join Wetpixel Expeditions in South Komodo, Indonesia, for two 11-night underwater photography trips aboard the luxury liveaboard dive vessel, The Seven Seas.
Trip 2: February 18 - March 1, 2014 (12 days / 11 nights)
Trip leader: Photographer Jason Bradley
Cost: $5,445.00 USD (including crew tip)
The Seven Seas is a 45-meter Buginese luxury schooler featuring plenty of deck space, private cabins with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning, sea kayaks, and some of the most experienced dive crew in Indonesia. Wetpixel’s 30-day expedition in 2009 was with The Seven Seas, and we are excited to return to Indonesia aboard the same vessel.
We are very excited to be diving the southern sites of Komodo National Park, which offer a fantastic mix of healthy coral reefs, huge schools of fish, and interesting macro life. In February and March, the waters in the south are clear and warm—the right conditions for productive underwater photography. We will visit all of the well-known dive sites in southern Komodo, including Manta Alley, Cannibal Rock, Torpedo Point, The Three Sisters, Lankoi, plus many more productive sites, all during a time in which not many other boats frequent Komodo.
Wetpixel trips are designed to be photographically productive. We feature unlimited dive times and flexible itineraries, and target advanced divers. If an area is hot, we will sit there and take advantage of it, and you will never be dragged through a dive site by a dive guide. A Wetpixel trip leader is available for photography advice and ad-hoc, informal workshops, and guests also frequently learn a lot from each other. It isn’t unusual to make a life-long friend after spending weeks together on a boat!
