Tambora is a custom-built 138-foot traditional Phinisi schooner.   You'll find 3 outdoor decks, giving ample space for relaxing between dives, sunning and enjoying the scenery. In front of the bridge is the main sun deck, which is partially covered for protection agains those piercing tropical rays ... but you can also hang out on the aft deck or in lounge chairs on the large partially covered bow of the main deck.  In addition, there's an interior salon with flat screen tv & surround sound, internet access and satellite telephone.

The indoor dive prep area is a great space with lots of storage and you'll find excellent an setup for your underwater photography materials. A large room on the upper deck, custom-built as a dive station, is divided into wet & dry sections. The wet section features: personal dive baskets for storing your equipment, individual wet suit hangers, 2 large rinsing tanks. The dry section provides a safe place work with your photography equipment. You'll access the tenders from a platform on the side of the main deck (as with almost all Phinisis).  This can also be used for snorkeling & swimming between dives.

You'll have a snack breakfast before the first dive then a cooked breakfast afterwards. Lunch and evening meals are a combination of international and Indonesian cuisine.  Drinks, on a help-yourself basis, are available in the salon: drinking water, a broad selection of local coffees, tea, milk, a range of soft drinks and beer are all included in the cruise fare.  Wines are available for an extra charge.
