Diving with Amira

• Depth is what we aim for; competence and organisation is how we achieve it

Bruno Hopff originally from Switzerland is our tour director, a kind and highly competent host. Bruno has lived in Indonesia for the last seven years working as a dive guide and tour director. His enthusiasm is visibly contagious even after more than 4000 dives. He speaks German, English, French and Indonesian. As initiator and co-owner of Amira Dive & Travel GmBH he and his crew make the well being of everyone on board their ultimate goal.

• Dive, eat, sleep, repeat

A regular dive day on the Amira consists of usually four dives (3 during day time, 1 at night). Exceptions may occur (e.g. first and last day of a trip, crossings, and unfavorable weather conditions). Extensive debriefing takes place on the nature of each dive site before heading out to sea with the three dinghies. Every dinghy is equipped with a radio transmission system, emergency oxygen tanks and each diver wears an ENOS homing device. A carefully chosen and well trained dive guide is assigned to every group (4-5 divers). Nitrox (32%) is available with extra cost. Nitrox courses are available for a fee.
