Solitude Adventurer

Solitude Adventurer with islands b optSolitude Adventurer is a 36-metre (118-foot) aluminum catamaran which can cater up to 18 guests in 8 cabins.   She specializes in Raja Ampat & Komodo and offers occasional Banda Sea trips.

A note from Dom:  "It's a pleasure to have this contemporary catamaran in the mix of Indonesian liveaboards.  I've known the owners for years and have immense respect for the operations they run in Palau & the Philippines.  Adventure's beamy aspect provides exceptional space & the stability of the cat for the crossings in Komodo, Raja Ampat & the Banda Sea is a real plus.

    ITINERARIES

    Solitude Explorer offers mainly 6 & 8-night trips although she has trips up to 12 nights in certain regions.  She concentrates on Komodo (north & south) & Raja Ampat (including Misool) but offers the occasional trip to Ambon & the Banda Sea.

    View an overview of the regions  ..... open

    Ambon – If you love crazy critters, Ambon is hard to beat. Get your lens ready for rhinopias, pegasus sea moths, countless varieties of frog fish, seahorse, flamboyant cuttlefish, ghost pipe fish and star gazers. Lesser known is the south side of Ambon, which features great colourful walls, caves, swim throughs and healthy reef life with large fish … and more critters.

    Banda Sea, Alor - In Alor & the Banda Sea, you'll find clear waters full of masses of fish & loads of invertebrates ... plus alluring critters. As to topography, you'll find shear drops, huge

    Komodo - Perhaps the most diverse of all diving in the Indonesian archipelago. There are seamounts, walls, canyons and pinnacles as well as the spectacular coral gardens. There a hot spring at an underwater volcano, great night dives on black sand slopes with creepy, crawly critters. Numerous sites tout pelagic fish, sharks & mantas but, be assured that at each dive site, you'll experience something different.

    South Komodo - South Komodo is a region which is genreally dived only from October to May.  The waters are clear and warm when northern Komodo tends to be chillier.  You may be treated to sightings of the largest living animal in the world, the blue whale, but assuredly will view great fish life, vibrantly colored reefs with orange and green cup corals, soft coral heavens and, of course, the most extraordinary critters hidden in the black sand of volcanic islands (which continue to provide exotic displays from time to time for intrepid visitors).

    Misool - Pure beauty awaits you here. This pristine area is a protected reserve. You’ll dive amongst splendid corals, experience drift dives & swim throughs, see large schools of pelagic fish and brightly colored reef fish. There are mantas, too … and plenty of fabulous critter action for macro photographers.

    Raja Ampat - Indonesia's shining underwater star, Raja Ampat has something of nearly everything a diver could want. You’ll dive channels, plateaus, walls & caves … and just plain mud, for the delight of “muck” diving. You'll swim amongst great swirls of fish and feast your eyes on sponges & corals in scintillating colors. You’ll meet up close & personal, everything from pygmy seahorses to colossal manta rays.
