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.
On December 23 I embarked on the Seven Seas, ready for an experience of a lifetime.. The luxurious boat provides spaces to read, chat, sunbathe or chill out. It is a total detox from life. The variety and high standard of food satisfied even the pickiest of eaters.
