All Star Velocean

All Star Liveaboards

Velocity & Ocean … Velocean combines a sleek design with elegant and sophisticated décor. With unparalleled service and amenities, divers can now experience a dream vacation they previously only imagined.

In a class all of its own, this ultra-luxurious dive liveaboard was designed specifically for divers.

With a 24-member crew, guests should prepare to be pampered starting with a welcome massage. This sleek, newly-built 171-ft. (52m) long vessel with three decks of living space features modern, comfortable furnishings in warm and inviting colors. Velocean’s ten (10) spacious suites with expansive ocean view windows redefine dive liveaboard accommodations. The dive deck and gear stations are a perfect match for Indonesia’s stellar diving.

Unlike most scuba diving liveaboards, Velocean’s cruising speed of 23 mph (20 knots) allows divers to maximize their vacation time – diving and exploring local islands and attractions. The vessel’s three decks provide ample space to socialize or relax in quiet surroundings. For the convenience of underwater photographers, private camera stations located in the lounge area allow professionals and amateurs to pursue their passion while staying central to activities.

        Route Options

        The Banda Sea itineraries range from 8 - 12 nights with most departing and returning to Ambon, but there are variations. Please be sure to check your specific travel dates.

        The diversity of marine life really makes this area stand out for divers. The reefs are caked with soft and hard corals and are home to a rainbow of reef fish with everything from wrasse to juvenile emperor angel fish. Macro photographers will be delighted to find mandarin fish and the unusual looking Ambon scorpion fish, which is indigenous to these islands. One of the most magical sights possible in the Banda Sea are huge schools of mobula rays gliding over the reefs. Arguably the most spectacular experience in the Banta Sea, if you are fortunate enough, is to dive with schooling hammerhead sharks. These giants come here in huge numbers and in often 100 ft. of visibility, this is truly a gift! Village visits are offered as well as other ecoadventures during the cruise to round out your experience of Indonesia.

        Komodo cruises have 6 - 9 night itineraries

        Boarding/disembarkation varies between Labuan Bajo and Bali. Underwater Komodo is what diver´s dreams are made of with visibility up to 100 ft. and marine life of all shapes and sizes. Plankton rich water that comes in from the deep makes the area thick with life. Huge shoals of fish and pelagics are all around the islands. The protection from the National Park also means that the waters and reefs are incredibly healthy and well stocked with fish of all shapes and sizes. The topography of Komodo and the shallow waters in between the Lesser Sunda Islands make for some serious current. You can experience up to 8 knots while diving and also highly changeable meaning most dives are drift dives. These currents are what bring the big life to Komodo with mantas, hammerheads, dolphins and mola mola making the most of the plankton rich waters. Macro lovers won´t be disappointed either, with pygmy seahorses wrapped around bright colored gorgonian fans and a rainbow of different nudibranchs on display.

        This itinerary departs and returns to Sorong with 8 - 12 night excursions.

        Dive the “Four Kings” area of Indonesia and immerse yourself in mantas, wobbegong sharks, and pygmy seahorses! Colorful and abundant hard and soft corals with magnificent sea life everywhere you look! The biodiversity of Raja Ampat is second to none, scuba diving here is sure to delight all divers. It was declared the most biodiverse place in the world in 2002. The marine park area is home to over a thousand different species of fish and more than five hundred different corals. Village visits are offered as well as other eco adventures during the cruise to round out your experience of Indonesia.
