Known as the Ring of Fire or Spice Islands, the Banda Sea, with its island jewels and hammerhead sharks, is considered the best place to sail in October/November and April.


We drew inspiration from the finest phinisis and added our special, unique, and renowned touch. We have custom-built a magnificent wooden phinisi: Shenron, immersing you in the local culture while providing all the modern comforts you need on board. We designed spacious cabins that invite our 8 guests to relish the country they visit.

An indoor dining room was added for comfort during the rainy season, featuring a chef offering a fusion of international and local cuisine. As diving experts, we take pride in having the only Nitrox filling station on our boat, equipped with a top-of-the-line filtration system.

Both an outdoor deck and a sky lounge on the upper deck were added for sunbathing, relaxation, and enjoying island views. With our unique experience since 2009 in Indonesian waters, we’ll offer you an extraordinary diving experience, fulfilling your days in what we consider some of Indonesia’s most spectacular spots.


It’s in Indonesia, the golden triangle of marine biodiversity, where our Shenron diving cruise will take you. In some diving sites like Batu Bolong in Komodo, Hari Lolong in Alor, and around the small islands of East Indonesia, you’ll discover more species than in the entire Caribbean.
