November 2014 HIENKE – HOLLAND

“Sad to leave…. Visit was too short.  Way beyond our expectations – great food, super friendly staff and more new critters in a few days than most places can find in a week or more.  2 Rhinopias on one dive, 5 ornate ghost pipefish on one crinoid, more frogfish than we could count.  Truly wonderful experience.  We’ll be sure to come back.”

“An excellent time! A lot of travel to get here but well worth it. Saw things I never would have noticed, except for your most excellent dive guides Lucky and Nan. It wont be next month, or even next year but I look forward to visiting Maluku Divers again.  Thank you for your fabulous efforts.

Thanks to everyone for the great service, and thanks also to the great dive guides who spotted so many interesting creatures that I never would have seen. If I ever make my way to Ambon again (Which I hope I will) I’ll be sure to dive with Maluku Divers. Thanks for everything.”

MARCH 2014 MARTIN AND SYLVIA EDGE – ENGLAND

“We just came home from a fantastic week of diving at Maluku Divers.  We have lived in Southeast Asia for some years and therefore also been to many different places and resorts in the area.  What made this place so unique is the friendly staff, the generous and accommodating atmosphere and the spacious and well organized dive center.  We were well looked after and Emily and Joe run everything in a very professional, service minded and organized way. We had a great week in Ambon!”

“ Many thanks for the warm welcome and for making the stay here a truly pleasant experience! You are an awesome team! A special thanks to the diving crew who did a great job in finding all the small small creatures.  Diving at the Duke of Sparta wreck was definitely a highlight!”

DECEMBER 2013 STEPHANIE – SWIZERLAND

“I had a great time.  I really enjoyed the friendliness and warm reception from everyone.  I like the flexibility offered.  The accommodation and food was great.  Diving was a great experience.  In my opinion you should also promote the Duke of Sparta and other wooden wreck! All in all I had a great time! Thank you!”

DECEMBER 2013 RICARDO – COLOMBIA

This email is about three weeks overdue.  I just wanted to thank you, Marcel, & the staff at Maluku Divers for an excellent couple of weeks.  As is the case with most trips, I had numerous minor issues with the equipment I brought along:  an electrical short, broken octopus, leaky O-rings, multiple broken fin straps, etc.  Fortunately, all problems were handled promptly & intelligently, so I was able to get all of my dives in.  I’d also like to add that the staff was extremely hard working during my stay.  Aside from the huge spider living in my bathroom—which I didn’t dare disturb—the room was kept fresh & clean at all times.  Most importantly, great care was taken with all diving gear (i.e. expensive cameras) both on and off the boats.  Anyway, I hope I can make Ambon diving a yearly event.

We had a wonderful stay at Maluku Divers and would be happy for you to share our trip report with others. We debated whether to include a few days at Maluku Divers in our Indonesia plans — we weren’t sure whether our whole family would enjoy muck diving, nor whether the cost (since there are the four of us) would be worthwhile. Our doubts dissipated quickly, and we greatly enjoyed our 4-day stay. No regrets! The resort and bungalows are lovely, the staff competent and attentive, and our 11 dives, all just a few minutes from the resort by boat, were excellent. Only our 15-year-old is a serious photographer, and he had the time of his life finding critters and talking photo stuff with Marcel. But the rest of us had a great time too. We appreciate being away from the crowds, and this is it — the frontier. Go now before the rest of the world catches on.
