“I was lucky enough to join a trip organized by Kristine and Peter aboard the Tambora in April of this year. Our journey took us through the incredible beauty of the waters around Halmahera in Indonesia with some of the best diving I have ever experienced.
Kristine and Peter were exemplary hosts, well
The diving was genuinely the best I have ever experienced (and I have been fortunate enough to dive in many places around the world). It is not possible to describe the beauty of the reefs we saw and I will never forget one of the dives when we were surrounded by schooling barracuda – a truly humbling experience. One thing that makes Kristine and Peter really stand out for me is the depth of knowledge they have. As an example, after pointing out the incredible coral spawning we were privileged to see they led a detailed and engaging conversation about coral and
For most of our trip there was not another dive boat in sight and even when we arrived in Lembeh Kristine and Peters local knowledge ensured we escaped the crowds.
I was particularly impressed with their emphasis on the importance of respecting local cultures and of protecting the marine environment, issues
Thank you, Kristine and Peter, for an incredible trip – I hope to see you again soon!”
“My Liveaboard Trip May 2019
Without a doubt in my mind, my dive holiday with hosts Peter and Kris was the best experience of my life. I almost didn’t make the boat as I missed a flight from Jakarta.
Tambora couldn’t wait for me and the only reason I made it at all, was the huge effort Peter, Kris
Once settled, I immediately felt welcome, and it was terrific to see Peter and Kris again after so many years ago at Manado. Their expertise and knowledge of the area, the dive sites, the local aquatic life including all manner of soft and hard corals only added to my enjoyment of the trip. Both Peter and Kris were able to answer any questions I had and were always encouraging me in my dive experience. I could see their genuine love for the ocean and how much they value opportunities to share their enthusiasm and dedication to diving with other enthusiasts. We all shared our passion about our responsibility to maintaining and nurturing clean oceans. I will be back for my next adventure with Peter and Kris in the near future!”

“…Also, I want to give a HUGE shout out to the lovely Kristine, who put our vacation together for us, on budget, and did LOTS of little extras that Expedia will never do. So for those of you who think that real human travel agents are a thing of the past, I highly recommend using one. She made my life a lot less complicated, and I will DEFINITELY do this again! “

“We have been on a number of trips with Peter and Kristine and have been impressed with their service and customer satisfaction they consider it important that guest’s needs are met and that guests have a good and enjoyable ( as well as memorable ) trip. In addition, both Peter and Kristine are real divers who greatly enjoy underwater experiences and want guests to share those experiences with them- they are spotters to complement the local dive guides. Peter and Kristine go out of their way for guests, over and over again.”
