    Any and all thoughts are welcome.

    Thanks

    Best regards,
    Both MSY Seahorse MSY Seahorse Liveaboard Dive Charters Indonesia | PT. Indo Cruises | Luxury sailing charters Indonesia, liveaboard scuba diving, diving Indonesa and Pindito Pindito liveaboard - Indonesian liveaboard diving pioneers were able to get oxygen bottles on-board for me with enough heads up. Wakatobi promised and said they had gotten O2, and despite 6 email reminders over 8 months, failed to deliver once I was on-board. In the end they did manage to deliver 3 19's of O2 from the resort (for 7 days of diving).

    I brought my own sorb and Haskel pump because I was going to be there for 2 months. Edi, the owner of Pindito ended up buying the pump from me for Pindito so they may still have it.

    Talk to Txus or Cici at Seahorse or Edi from Pindito and see if they can help. You may also pick up your sorb in Denpasar and save yourself some fees. Just make sure you hire a local "expediter" for the Denpasar airport as they know all the in's and outs and can save you lots of money and hassle if you are bringing in big gear.

    Enjoy. It's an amazing part of the world and a total PITA to get around in. Triton Bay is especially amazing.

    Another option in side of the world Wakatobi Dive Resort - Wakatobi.com

    They are very rebreather friendly with enough tanks, sorb and gas, including helium if requested in advance for even groups as large as 20.

    REVO III mini Hybrid

    Re: Raja Ampat - alternative in the pacific region

    HI Sireenfleet,

    I am planing to go to raja ampat with my son next january or february. we are both revo III hybrid divers. my question:

    can you guarantee that we would have the following rebreather friendly services and/or amenities aboard sireen fleet liveaboards in raja ampat :

    . onboard O2/dil tanks for rental
    .O2 fills (maybe trimix:)
    .sofnolime
    .VERY IMPORTANT : extended bottom times

    i have been sending emails to different liveaboard operators that advertise themselves as rebreather friendly, but extended bottom times is in most cases an issue.

    any sugestions other than raja ampat (pacific region) that would meet the criteria above?

    cheers,

    fred
