Boat Description

With over 25 years experience, the MV Pindito is the pioneer of liveaboard diving in Indonesia. Lovingly built to the highest standard, by owner Edi Frommenwiler, and meticulously maintained, Pindito continues to set the standard with her thoughtfully laid out floor plan and smooth sailing. In continuous operation since 1992 the MV Pindito's crew is unmatched for it's diving knowledge and experience in Indonesia. The MV Pindito launched operation in the Banda Sea and quickly expanded her routes to include Raja Ampat, Komodo, Ambon, Alor and many places in between.

Once onboard, the Lounge is the place where our guests meet for meals, to share photos and videos between dives, and to socialize. 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 also offers an extensive library to learn about the reefs and fishes you've seen on dives in our Marine Life Library, or curl up with a book between dives. Novels are available on a "take one/leave one" basis.

Alternatively, you can relax in the luxury of your teakwood paneled 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... it's your choice. All cabins feature newly renovated (June 2017) ensuite with hot and cold running water (vanity and shower as well as toilet), individually controlled air conditioning and five 220v AC electrical outlets (German 2-pole plugs), available 24 hours a day.

Our crew is devoted to your comfort and will attend to your cabin daily, keeping it clean and tidy and providing fresh towels as necessary. Additional towels are available for you on deck as needed.

Pindito offers six double cabins and two twin cabins, creating very comfortable accommodations for up to 16 guests.

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

The owners 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. There's also 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.
