Ambon Maluku Diving Trips
Thanks for the email, I’m interested to know how you found out about Maluku Diving.
We would certainly be interested to work with your company, so here are the details about our packages and our facility.
We’re very happy to announce that Maluku Divers has evolved in the summer of 2009, with a brand new purpose built dive resort in Ambon. Set amongst mature trees in a beautiful 9,800 metre private beachfront plot, in the village of Laha just 5 minutes from the airport, we've built 10 individual bungalows, supported by on site restaurant, dive shop, large camera room and great dive facilities. The bungalows comprise of hot water private bathrooms, a/c and each has a private patio. Inside each bungalow, along with our trademark enormous comfy beds, we have added editing desks, with charging stations for our divers. There is also a large relaxing open air wooden terrace at the front of each bungalow, offering uninterrupted views to the ocean and our new house critter dive. As we're now located within Ambon bay, we can offer numerous shore diving opportunities at the resort at multiple critter sites directly on the shoreline, as well as boat dives to the other sites in and around Ambon.
At the purpose built dive resort, we have a daily rate of $250 per diver per night at the resort, based on twin shared accommodation. This is a dive and stay package, and includes accommodation, 3 dives each day and all of your meals. If your divers decide to join for an extended stay, we offer a package rate. For 6 days diving with 7 nights accommodation, with a total of 18 dives, the package is $1,550 per person. Over and above the 6 dive days in the package, additional dive days are charged at $237.50 per diver per night. There are also options for unlimited shore dive packages along with the extended 6 dive day packages.
Finally I'd point out that Ambon is a relatively new destination for tourism, we always make sure to tell our divers that Ambon is not a 5 star destination. We do work really hard to provide the best possible service, however Ambon is a little rustic and does have it's idiosyncrasies. We believe this rustic nature gives the island and the dive experience it's charm, but we also want people to be aware of what to expect when they join us for some great diving. Please don’t have your guests join us expecting a Bali 5 Star package, but for an adventurous dive experience away from the crowds.
So there we are Gilang, I hope it's suitable information for you, but if you have any further questions, please do let me know I'll be happy to help.
Cheers, Ambon Maluku Diving
