Water Temperature and Wetsuit recommendations: Bali-Komodo-Bali: The Flores Sea with its usually clear blue waters, great visibility has water temperatures of approx. 26-28 degrees (northern dive locations) –most guests comfortable with a 3-5mm long. The Sumba Sea (southern dive locations) has an average temperature of approx. 24 degrees – the awesome diving lets you forget about the cooler waters! Think about a 5mm long possibly adding a vest or renting a shorty to go over the top if you feel the cold. Hood, gloves and booties are strongly recommended for these cooler waters. The Alor region can also share some surprisingly cool waters like Komodo so a thicker suit is recommended and we have rentals available on board. Raja Ampat/Misool area : The water temperature around the 4 Kings of Raja Ampat and Misool area is 28-30 degrees Celsius year round. We recommend a 3 mm long wetsuit. If you get chilly, maybe a vest for under you suit. Biodiversity Special: Water temperatures will range between 26-30 degrees Celsius. We have a selection of long and short wetsuits on board which you can rent if you are cold or change into if you are too warm in your suit. Equipment on board: Rental is charged on a “per diving day” basis. Full rental equipment is available. Dive computers are mandatory – 1 per diver. Please advise your rental equipment needs including sizes when you book. Both vessels carry mostly 12 litre tanks plus some15 litre tanks available. There is no additional cost for a 15 litre tank or 15 litre nitrox fill – however it is subject to availability and the Cruise Director’s discretion as to who needs the larger tanks on each cruise. Tank valves are international and some DIN adapters are available on board. Any dive equipment failure or loss will require you to rent a replacement from Mermaid Liveaboards at our published rates.

Malaria: Raja Ampat area There is malaria in the region for the Raja Ampat cruise – this area is around the equator and we recommend you discuss this with your doctor.

And from the Raja Ampat Tourism Association: Papua is a malaria area and you are advised to take precautions and follow the advice from your local health centre. Note that the medication Lariam has limited effectiveness in this area due to a resistant strain of Malaria and is not recommended. Alternatives could be Malarone or doxicycline.
