The Maluku Explorer (a.k.a Liburan Paradise Liveaboard) is belongs to Extra Divers Worldwide and one and only Liveaboard that run diving at Halmahera. Maluku Explorer was built from divers for divers so it’s spacious compare to other liveaboard you may know and provides different kinds of rooms. All nine cabins are equipped with air conditioning and bathroom with shower. The dive deck is very spacious (45 sqm) and also provides a huge camera table for photographers and charging stations.

On the dive deck there are 2 showers outside. The comfortable liveaboard is spoiling its guests since the summer of 2011 in South-Halmahera. At 34 meters in length and almost 8 meter wide, on three decks the Liburan Paradise is exploring the unspoilt areas of the North Moluccas (South-Halmahera). With beautiful spacious master cabins, one large premium cabin and cozy double cabins and single cabins on the lower deck, plenty of room on the dive deck and a beautiful lounge on the sun deck the new Maluku Explorer will enchant you.

Located between the diving meccas of Manado and Raja Ampat, Halmahera has the potential to be yet another amazing Indonesian scuba diving destination. Halmahera’s pristine beauty, both above the water and below the water, is truly unrivaled. Its remote location and lack of infrastructure have inhibited the growth of tourism.

Topographically and geographically Halmahera is an amazing group of islands with huge biodiversity of not only fish life but geologically, this also means that dive site types here are very diverse too.
