OFFER: INDONESIA, 2017! 

bdr kalimaya

Inspired by his recent trip to Indonesia, Daniel has put together two special offers to our brand new destination: Kalimaya Dive Resort on East Sumbawa Island. Kalimaya is great to combine with a visit to Bali Dive Resort & Spa. "During the week at Kalimaya Dive Resort we encounter only one passing liveabaord, the rest of the time we are alone at all dive sites. There are few places like this left on Earth."

Bali Dive Resort & Spa is one of our most popular destinations, and it is easy to understand why. It offers delicious food, high standard and spacious accommodation, fantastic service, great diving and beautiful nature.

Daniel about the diving at Bali Dive Resort & Spa: “The diving is a mix between muck and corel reef diving. Nudibranchs, shrimp, crabs, moray eels etc. The coral reefs are in many places very beautiful and are surrounded by large schools of fish, which is always nice to see as it indicates a healthy reef.

Kalimaya Dive Resort is Scuba Travel's newest destination. är Scuba Travels nyaste resmål. is the first dedicated dive resort in East Sumbawa Island and the only dive operator offering day trip diving to West Komodo Island, Gili Banta, and Sangeang Volcano. Here, you will stay right by the waterfront, and all meals are served at a long table, which creates an atmosphere similar to that of a liveaboard.

Daniel about the diving at Kalimaya Dive Resort: “The best coral reefs I have ever seen, the diversity and size of the corals is astonishing. I can't say that I have been a diver who is especially interested in corals, but this is a turning point in my life as a diver. Seeing reefs this healthy is a true joy, and to enjoy them alone with a small group of divers makes the experience absolutely amazing. During the week at Kalimaya Dive Resort we encounter only one passing liveabaord, the rest of the time we are alone at all dive sites. There are few places like this left on Earth. Every new dive site we visit offers more and more new impressions and it feels like the reef is doing everything in its power to impress us divers. We get to see fish I have never seen before; several different Rhinopia, Ghostpipe fish, a plethora of  nudibranchs, Frogfish, heaps of crabs, Cat shark, reef shark.

THAILAND APRIL 2016 WITH OXYGENE GÖTEBORG

o2 göteborg

“In April 2016, a group from Oxygene Göteborg to the Similan Islands in Thailand. After a day in Khao Lak, we climbed aboard “The Junk” which would be our home for the week and take us to different dive locations. We started around Similan’s southern islands and then north to Koh Tachai, Koh Bon and Richelieu Rock. By the second day, we had already seen our first manta ray.

One of the first highlights of the trip was Richelieu Rock; a reef out in the middle of the ocean. The visibility wasn’t the best on the trip, however, that was outweighed by the amount of life present at the dive site. Around the top of the reef there was schools of snappers, fusiliers, trevallies and cornet fish. In addition to different schools of fish, we saw everything from moray eels to boxfish and ornate ghost pipefish, pineconefish and tigertail seahorses. In order to see everything, we spent an entire day diving around the reef.

We did the weeks two last dives at Koh Bon. Here, we were able to spend the entire dive together with many mantas which would occasionally glide by us gracefully and sometimes would very close at a playful speed. What an amazing end to an incredible trip! Thank you to everyone who participated!”
– Anna, Oxygene Göteborg.
