DAY 1: Sorong / Waisai / East Dampier Strait.
We will collect you from the airport or your hotel between 6 & 8am for an 9am departure from Sorong to Waisai via the ferry. Our friendly staff will accompany you on the 2 hour ferry ride to Waisai where La Galigo will await you. After a refreshing welcome drink, and a short introduction to the facilities of our ship, the diving schedule, and the tour program, we set sail for our first day, which will include a refresher dive for all divers onboard. Check-out dive site: Will vary depending on the conditions at the time. We take you to a nice and easy dive site with that will introduce you to the wonder of Indonesian diving, shallow soft sandy bottom, amazing muck critters, clear warm water…. yep the travel time was worth it. We relax for our first Dinner together to get to know your fellow passengers and crew and overnight cruise to the central Dampier Strait.

DAY 2: Central and Eastern Dampier Strait.
We start to wind up into the full schedule today with 3 day dives and a night dive.The dive sites we normally visit in this area are Cape Kri, Blue Magic or Yambuba day and night dive The afternoon is spent swapping stories, having laughs and cracking a few cold ones with your new mates.

DAY 3: Mansuar Island and Batanta.
Today we head westbound on the Dampier Strait towards Sawdenrek jetty. This is a great little jetty dive full of amazing fish life and corals. For dive 2 we head south to the island of Batanta. Here we will dive Dayam (manta point). We only dive twice today as we will start the long haul cruise down to Misool in the south straight after the second dive. The afternoon can be spent relaxing and listening to the “La Galigo House Band” play a few tunes.

DAY 4: Goa Farondi Region, Misool.
After the long haul south we will arrive in Misool around late morning to midday. In the Goa Farondi area we will do two afternoon dives plus a night dive. This area is well known for its Mobula rays and amazing swim throughs and water filled caves.

DAY 5: Daram Island
We will do 3 day dives plus a night dive here. Daram is one of the areas less frequented by liveaboards in Misool due to it’s location, however, it is home to what many consider one of the finest dive sites in the world, ‘Candy store’. Quite often we will do it more than once if our guests agree/request, but there is also many of the other sites located around Daram which are amazing in their own right.

DAY 6: Jamur Boo Region, Misool.
We wake up a little further south but still in Misool. Today we will be doing 3 day dives plus a night dive. As always the dives sites are condition dependent, but some of the sites we like to visit around this area are Boo Rocks, Boo Window and the renowned Manta Haven of Magic Mountain.


Day 7: Central Misool.
Over night we have moved a little further east to the centre of the diving action in Misool. This is another full diving day with 3 day dives plus a night dive. Some of our favourite spots to dive around here are Nudi Rock, Tank Rock and Whale Rock.

DAY 8: Goa Farondi Region, Misool.
This morning the sun rises once again against the sheer cliffs of Goa Farondi. We will have two more great morning dives here starting a bit earlier than normal before the boat starts off around mid morning for the long haul back to Sorong. Please note that this is a large crossing and if the weather is rough we may have to only do one dive to leave enough time to cruise back to Sorong.


Day 9 Disembark La Galigo at Sorong
From 08:00 we will be anchored in Sorong in preparation for disembarkation, however, guests may stay onboard until 11am for breakfast with us!
