FAQ

How much is the Marine Park permit fee?

As of 2007, it is mandatory for each visitor, divers or non-divers, to purchase a Marine Park tag, which is valid for a whole year. The cost is 1 000 000 Rupiah (approx. 70 € or $75 US) for foreign nationals. Children 12 years and younger are exempt from paying the fee. You could either buy them yourself in Sorong on your way to the ferry, or ask our friendly dive staff in assisting you to find the Marine Park office in Waisai.

What do I need to bring along?

Please keep in mind that we are in a VERY remote area.

  • Dive Certification card (mandatory for all divers).
  • Dive insurance (mandatory for all divers). Annual dive insurance policies can be purchased before your arrival. We recommend you consider the Dive Master Insurance, as they are specialists in Diver safety and only cost $5 US per day.
  • Insect repellent & light coloured clothes.
  • Good walking shoes & binoculars (especially if you want to join the Birds of paradise trecks)
  • A warm pullover or jacket. Evenings can occasionally be brisk, and the domestic flights are often freezing and do not provide blankets in the plane.
  • 1 passport photo and 1 copy of your passport for your travel permit which we will arrange for you (see above).
  • Passport valid for 6 months from the time of entry into Indonesia. Nationals of most countries will be granted a free 30-day Visa on Arrival. We recommend you check with the Indonesian Embassy in your home country to confirm.
  • One complete empty page in your passport in which to put the Visa on Arrival sticker
  • Sometimes travellers are asked by Indonesian Immigration officials to show a copy of their airline ticket out of Indonesia within the 30-day period. Happens rarely but is possible.
  • Hat, sunglasses, sun block, insect repellent, extra batteries, a towel and tampons! You can’t find them in Sorong. Our dress code is extremely casual.
  • It is recommended that all travellers bring their own set of medicine (ibuprofen, cortisone, antihistamine, fever, cold, diarrhea, etc) as it is really difficult to get here. You should include antibiotic ointment and band aids to treat all skin irritations as soon as possible to prevent infections.

How do I get to Sorong?

The easiest way to get to Sorong is to fly via Jakarta or Singapore. Domestic travellers can also fly via Makassar or Manado.

From Jakarta: Garuda Indonesia, Express Air, Sriwijaya Air and Lion/Wings operate daily flights from Jakarta to Sorong (with stopovers in Makassar or Manado)

From Singapore: Silkair operates regular flights from Singapore to Manado. From Manado to Sorong regular flights are offered by Garuda Indonesia, Lion Air and Express Air. Please note the flight times are subject to change without prior notification.

Trying to book through most local airline websites from overseas can be difficult because they only accept Indonesian credit/debit cards. Therefor we highly recommend purchasing travel insurance and using a booking agent. However, Garuda Indonesia offers online sales through their website and accepts International credit cards.

Ferry Schedules:

  • Sunday – Saturday : Sorong to Waisai (9.00 AM – 11.00 AM)
  • Sunday – Saturday : Sorong to Waisai (2.00 PM – 4.00 PM)
  • Sunday – Saturday : Waisai to Sorong (9.00 AM – 11.00 AM)
  • Sunday – Saturday : Waisai to Sorong (2.00 PM – 4.00 PM)

What are the baggage limitations?

Some international carriers provide baggage allowances for Scuba equipment, however domestic airlines do not provide a dive gear allowance.

The exception is Garuda Indonesia. They are a member of the Sky Team alliance, such as Air France, Alitalia, Air Europa, Delta, KLM and Korean Air. If you arrive with any of those carries, you may be able to check your baggage all the way through to Sorong. In this case, Garuda currently allows 32kg for domestic flights as well.

Garuda: 20 kg
Sriwijaya and Express Air: 20 kg

Any excess luggage has to be paid in Indonesian Rupiah at the airport on check-in. Rates for excess baggage are subject to change without notice and vary depend on the airline, aircraft type and location.

It is difficult to pinpoint because there were so many. The diving was magical. I have never seen such a variety and great numbers of fish and sea life and the coral/plant life of the reefs were stunning. This is the diving that can bring you to tears of joy. The shore excursions were great too, especially the trip to the Pianemo Viewpoint and the beach BBQ.
