| LIVEABOARD SERVICES:
Murex has three liveaboard boats available servicing the remote Sangihe Islands north of Sulawesi. We have 4 and 6 day fixed departures leaving every Saturday. The boats can also be chartered for longer or shorter periods. We can design a custom itinerary to fit your needs.
All Murex liveaboard dive trips offer truly unlimited diving, (typically guests do 3 day dives and 1 night dive per day). Proof of dive certificate is required. Our experienced dive guides accompany all divers on the first few dives. Divers who are competent can then dive without our guide, however guides continue to monitor guest safety.
Price is all inclusive i.e. airport transfers, on board lodging, food, tanks, weights. Scuba rental equipment, soft drinks and beer extra.
