I was very excited to start my first trip as a Cruise Director on the Seven Seas. I was already on board two times as a guest, then for two months supported Karl, and then cruised 15 days with Mark, learning from them all the time.
Earlier this month, Indonesian non-profit, Misool Foundation, welcomed guests from the Seven Seas as they passed through on a 2-week liveaboard trip. The group of 14 visited the Foundation’s programme office in East Flores to learn more about its with the manta hunting community of Lamakera.
We enjoyed a week of the most fantastic dives, enjoying magnificent ship, the wonderful company of our bunch most of all the hospitality of the very special crew on the Seven Seas.
Our stay on the Seven Seas Liveaboard was not a diving trip, nor was it a pleasure cruise: it was a `sea life experience`. We learned to experience living at sea, and we were privileged to study and enjoy the lives of all the creatures that call the sea their natural home.
Recently we have been getting quite a few guests who just want to snorkel. Last trip we had one tender totally dedicated to a family of very keen snorkelers.
My wife and I were among 12 very fortunate divers on board the Seven Seas, a one hundred foot Iron wood trading Pinisi built in Makassar and tricked out for anything a diver could wish for. On our first dive an immense Ocean Manta appeared, at first like a ghost ship then floated above us, blocking out the sun.
