surcharges, port clearance & park entry fees
The prices quoted on the rates pages are fully inclusive of meals onboard and all dives but due to local regulations and the remote areas that we visit we are forced to apply the following fees and surcharges to some cruises. Please note that all fees and surcharges are subject to change at very short notice in line with prevailing conditions in Indonesia.
port clearance, transfer & baggage fees
For departures from most ports in Indonesia we have to add a surcharge to cover port clearance charges, airport to boat transfers and luggage handling fees. Please note that these surcharges may change without prior notice.
|Departure Port||Clearance Fee|
|All other ports||$200|
For all cruises finishing in Sorong (Irian Jaya) we have to apply the Sorong port clearance fee.

ALL divers are now required by law to pay an entrance fee of US$55 per person to dive in this area. The entrance ticket is valid for one year and will go towards supporting reef conservation and community development. This project is managed by three major NGOs, CORAL INTERNATIONAL (www.coral.org), WWF (www.wwf.org) and TNC (www.nature.org).
