how many divers per dive guide?
We put maximum four divers in a one group with one of our dive guides. We also try to divide groups depending on skill level; we put open water divers in one group and advanced divers in another group whenever possible.
are your dive professionals certified?
Yes our dive guides, dive masters and dive instructors have professional certifications.
Do you have 100 oxygen?
Yes we have 100% oxygen with proper masks to administer it.
is your dive equipment in good condition?
Yes, all of our dive equipment was recently purchased. We service all of our gear regularly and have a certified equipment technician on site. Our air compressor was purchased new in August 2018 and we change its filter weekly. All of our cylinders are up to date for visual inspections and hydrostatic testing.
what kind of boats do you have?
We currently have two speed boats, both of the boats have two Yahama 100 hp, 4 stroke engines and sound systems to keep your bodies moving in the surface intervals.
Aline was built in October 2019. It is very comfortable for doing trips close to Kri as well as farther away such as Piaynemo, Batanta, Gam and Wayag trips. Aline fits 8 divers + the guides and boat crew.
Our second boat called Anna, we got end of the year 2022. Anna fits 12 divers very comfortably and it is perfect for local dive trips like Cape kri, Blue magic, Sardine, Yenbuba jetty and Sawandarek
how many dives do you per day?
When not conducting Adventure Trips ,we dive close to Kri, where the highest number of dive sites in Central Raja Ampat are located. We leave at 7:30 a.m. to do two morning dives and come back to Kri before lunchtime around 12:30. We organize a third dive in the afternoon that leaves at 2:30. We also can organize night dives.
What do your adventure trips consist of?
Our Adventure Trips last all day; leave at 7:30 a.m. and come back to Kri around 4:30 p.m. We bring lunch, snacks, water, coffee and tea with us. Along with doing two dives, we usually stop at places where you can snorkel and always do an on land activity. Everything is included in the price--two dives, food, boat fare, etc. Only the Birds of Paradise and Manta Rays adventure trips don't last all day; we leave at 7:30 a.m. for the Manta Rays trip and 4:30 a.m. for the Birds of Paradise trip and return to Kri by 1 p.m.
What dive sites can we book?
We dive three times (or four times if we organize night dives) daily around Kri. There are about 30 dive sites near Kri that we go to, such as the following: House Reef, Cape Kri, Sorido Wall, Blue Magic, Mike’s point, Odima, Crossover, Kuburan Reef, Yenbuba Jetty, Ransiwor, Sawandarek, West Mansuar, Cape Mansuar, Warasnus, Koy Island, Chicken Reef, Sardine Reef, Dom Te Te, Friwen Wall, Friwen Village, Batu Lima, Mioskun, Lao Lao Reef and more.
We also visit dive sites farther away from Kri when conducting our Adventure Trips: Arborek Jetty, Citrus Ridge, Mayham, Manta Sandy, Manta Slope, Manta Ridge, Beser Bay, The Passage and more. We go to sites near Batanta like the Airplane Wreck and Manta Wai. We also dive near Fam and Piaynemo at Melissa’s Garden, Fam Wall, Fam Slope, Batu Rufas and Ikan Party.
We always try to accommodate our divers' requests, but we can't plan exactly which dive sites we will go to in advance. This is because we must take into account the weekly tide chart and weather conditions to determine the dive sites that will be the most safe and enjoyable for our divers. It's best to discuss with other divers which sites or Adventure Trips the entire group would like to go to once you're on Kri in order to share the costs and ensure everyone is happy. Otherwise, organizing private diving days or Adventure Trips would be quite expensive.
do you also own accommodation?
No, we just own the dive center, but we can recommend you few homestay around us, please check here.
Can you pick us up at our homestay?
We can pick you up at any homestay located on Kri Island. It's only if the tide is extremely low and we can't make it to the beach that you'd have to walk to our dive center. If you are staying on East Mansuar or other island you have to ask to your homestay to arrange a boat to come at our dive center.
