Smorgasbord of diving on the Seven Seas

Cenotes - Guided Cavern Diving
Magnificent Maldives

The variety of diving we did around Komodo Island was remarkable. We dived Black Sand Volcanic dives, drift dives in powerful raging currents, colourful reef dives, schooling fish dives, night dives and outstanding macro dives. Coral reefs can be incredibly diverse and varied. We had a smorgasbord of grand diving on our luxury Yacht, Seven Seas on our twelve night trip.

Black Sand dives.

North West of Komodo is the double Volcano, Sangeang Island. It is a constantly smouldering twin peak with black volcanic sand beaches about five hours steaming.

A cenote (pron: si / nouti) is a sink hole where limestone has eroded away underneath the ground by subterranean water movement which creates a hole or opening that drops down to expose a water table underneath. The story of the Mexican cenotes began 66 million years ago when a meteor estimated at 10km across fell through our atmosphere and impacted into the Yucatan peninsular. The energy energy impact was estimated at around 1 billion times the atomic bomb that was dropped on Japan during WWII.

Most checkout dives are pretty average, designed to allow you to check your weighs, gear and buoyancy and for your dive guide to assess your abilities. However, on a recent trip to the Maldives our checkout dive was far from average and was one of the most memorable dives of the trip.
