Pindito Description

A classic Phinisi boat built in Indonesia, Pindito’s unmatched expertise, attention to detail and dedication to the Indonesian culture and way of live guarantees an unforgettable liveaboard experience. The crew is referred to as “The Pindito family” and yes they are like a family the warmth and friendliness on board are special. Languages spoken on board are Bahasa, English and German.

With over 20 years of diving and operating a liveaboard in Raj Ampat, Edi Frommenwiler and his crew have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the seas above and below the waters of Indonesia. The boat was completely refitted in 2006 and now with the addition of the camera room and sun deck, will meet your every expectation.

Each of the 6 double bed and 2 twin bed cabins, have individual A/C, en suite bathrooms, with shower,( hot and cold water, ) washbasin, and toilet, and five 220v AC electrical outlets.

Relax in the luxury of their teakwood-panelled cabins. Each 10′ x 10′ cabin is named after a mystical Indonesian island and, depending on your reservation, is appointed either with a twin bed plus an upper bunk, or with a spacious double bed…your choice.

The twin bedded cabins “Ambon” and “Aru” are named after the islands in the Maluku region. Our cabins with one twin bed and a bunk offer more floor space than double cabins. Twin cabins are ideal for single guests — there is no surcharge for booking half a twin cabin.

The Lounge is the place where everybody meets for meals, shares photos and videos between dives, and socializes. The Pindito offers a computer for burning CDs/DVDS so that you can create lasting pictorial and video memories of your dives. Please bring your own blank CDs and DVDs! A satellite phone and Email access is 24h available (an extra fee is charged on board).

Also you can enjoy a variety of music and new video releases here, and feel free to plug in your laptop, camcorder or dSLR to view your images on our big screen TV. The Pindito offers as well a library to learn about the reefs and fishes you’ve seen on dives in our Marine Life Library, or curl up with a paperback between dives. Novels are available on a “take one/leave one” basis.

Savourthier international cuisine, prepared by expert chefs. The food is influenced by international and above all Indonesian (or Asian) dishes. Breakfast is served in two slots. Continental breakfast before the first dive, sumptuous breakfast buffet after the first dive.

Lunch and dinner with an Asian flair, featuring meat, fish, and a variety of side dishes. And save room for special sweets and delightful desserts. Between meals, their crew will serve you snacks, including cake and cookies. Tea, coffee, juice, soda and cold water are always available.

After your last dive of the day, alcoholic beverages are available (included). Only wine needs to be ordered in advanced and paid separately.

Meet and prepare for your upcoming dive on the Pindito‘s Dive Deck. Take a fresh water shower after the dive and then you can just hang out before and after dives on the sun deck. A Persenning (sun roof) offers shade during the hot day. Sunbeds are available for all guests.Classical Balinese or Aroma-Therapy massages can also be enjoyed on the sun deck.


The dive deck offers enough space for all divers. Each guest receives his own box where he can store his dive gear. On the front of the ship are some hangers where you can hang up your wet dive suite. For rinsing your gear there are 2 big fresh water tanks. For Photo- and Videographer there is an extra rinse tank for cleaning your cameras.

Once you’ve enjoyed a pre-dive continental breakfast you can meet our dive guides on the dive deck. Here you will be given a detailed briefing and shown a graphical representation of the dive site. After the briefing the crew will transfer your gear to the 3 Zodiacs. We load a maximum compliment of 6 divers on each Zodiac (small group diving protects the reef). Just climb into the Zodiac and your gear will be waiting for you there. Further, once you explain the particulars of your camera system to your guides – they will make sure that it is delivered to your Zodiac with care and consideration.

Dive on board the Pindito with a rebreather. If you haven’t the special course for rebreather diving, you can do this course during your Pindito trip. The Pindito offers 4 Poseidon Discovery MK VI sets, which can be rented.

Photographers and videographers will love the convenience and functionality of the Pindito’s camera room, located aft of the Lounge on the Main Deck.

They built the Camera Room with the needs of modern digital underwater photographers and videographers in mind. Here you will find plenty of storage space, professional-grade work areas, and both 220v and 110v AC charging stations at your disposal. They also offer overflow space for photographers on the spacious tables in the salon (please clear for meals) and on the lounge deck when more space is needed for image-makers.
