Seuraava sukellusmatkani suuntautuu Indonesiaan Raja Ampatin alueelle. Matka-aika on 7-24 Helmikuuta 2024 ja sukelluspäiviä kertyy 11 kpl.

Tämä on melko samanlainen kuin edellinen vuoden 2011 Indonesian matkamme 13 vuotta sitten. Jopa tukialus on sama MSY Seahorse ja matkan järjestäjänä Hannu Kuosa. MSY Seahorsella risteilemme 13 päivää kiertäen Waigeo-saaren länsipuolen, Misoolin etelä-kaakkoispuolen ja Dampierin salmen. Sukellusta on 11 päivää, yhteensä luokkaa 30 sukellusta.
