The Forgotten Islands, officially known as the Southeast Moluccas (Maluku Tenggara), are for true explorers and divers seeking out something new and unusual, as you are taken from one secret paradise to another. They span from the West Papua area of New Guinea all the way to the island of Timor, forming a 1,000 km long chain. These islands are isolated even by Indonesian standards. Expect long walls with extremely healthy coral life and immaculate, untouched seamounts. Look for giant barrel sponges and immense sea fans. In the shallows, the hard coral gardens are decorated with schools of colorful anthias. ‘Big stuff’ can include schooling hammerheads, silver, white and black tip reef sharks, napoleon wrasse, mobula rays, bumphead parrotfish, eagle rays, turtles, thresher sharks along with schooling jacks, barracuda, surgeonfish and fusiliers. ‘Small stuff’ includes pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, ghost pipefish, octopus, psychedelic frogfish and dragon shrimps.
Living aboard Dewi Nusantara is as close to a five star experience as is possible in the faraway corners of the Indonesian archipelago. With a length of 57 meters, this three masted topsail schooner moves with a grace and stability that only larger sailing vessels can offer. While you experience the romance of a bygone area you will be able to indulge in the sheer luxury of finding lots of space everywhere you go from bow to stern. With her state of the art diving equipment Dewi Nusantara has become the ultimate live-aboard diving platform in Indonesia. Her discreet and attentive Indonesian crew of 18 is complemented by a cruise director and four divemasters who all have extensive experience in the area.
