With almost 30 years of continuous service, Pindito’s crew is unrivalled in theirknowledge and experience of the Indonesian magic that amazes both above and below the water.
Launched in the Banda Sea in 1992, Pindito quickly expanded routes to include Raja Ampat, Komodo, Ambon and Alor. Today, Pindito continues to thrive as the pioneer, exploring new areas and new dive sites, while developing and offering trips that are both unique and diverse.
Our eight cabins and common areas are comfortable and thoughtfully planned, and offer a relaxed yet professional setting for all activities. We cater for many levels of water lovers and strive to accommodate all types of adventures. Diving, snorkeling, whale and bird watching, paddle boarding andisland/cultural visits are just a sample of what Pindito offers. Photographers and videographers will appreciate the space and layout of the specially built and dedicated camera room.
Lovingly built by Swiss owner Edi Frommenwiler, Pindito is meticulously maintained with an impeccable safety record. Year on year upgrades and improvements keep Pindito at the top of her class as she continues to set standards with her smooth riding and stabilized hull.
