We asked: what would a perfect dive deck entail? The answer is for you to admire and explore: Generously designed space to gear up with a fixed site for each diver, several rinse tanks, plenty of surface space and a large camera room. All in all an ideal base camp for the most beautiful dive excursions in Komodo, Raja Ampat and Banda.
