One of the best diving experiences I've had so far. (+) Diving sites: plenty of diving sites all around Alor (definitely >50); each with its own unique beauty. The wall, shallow reefs, school of fish, the jetty, the dolphins that swims alongside your boat, literally everything are magical--diving here was almost a spiritual experience that makes you find your zen and grateful for everything. (+) The people: The guides are highly experienced, always put safety first, knows the tide well, and treat you like family members. Shoutout to Acionk for his spot on vision and ability to take awesome pictures while rummaging through the reefs; as well as Maul for his meticulousness in teaching and giving feedback. Even just by eavesdropping him teaching I felt like learning something new. We had really good conversation from fish and nudi ID to star wars to Indonesian gossips. The rest of the team–the Bibis/the cook, Abror and the boat crew, Marcel the driver, and others–are also super friendly, helpful, and all in all just adorable. (+) The food: variety of food selection is always available both on land and on the boat and they're all delicious. For breakfast, there're always a choice of fried rice, fried noodles, or toasted bread. Lunch and dinner menu are also well-varied and way beyond my expectation; we even had lobster once. Plenty of food is also available on the boat if you feel like snacking during surface interval. The crew also take into account your preference; if you don't like certain food/fruit, they'll adjust the menu accordingly. (+) The rooms and gears are all well maintained. Bedroom is squeaky clean (and always been tidied up while you go diving), AC and hot showers works fine. There're plenty of power plugs and even a safety deposit box. (+) The crews always maintain a proper diving procedure and gives you great feedback (upon request), especially if you're not as confident with your skills like me. The briefings are very detailed (they always have a drawing of each site with all the details written on a tiny whiteboard) and conducted on time. Already booked my slots for the next season because once it's just not enough! Thank you Air Dive crew for making my trip super memorable. Totally worth every sunburn LOL

A place where everything so slow and magical. The unfinished concept place design make me very confortamble, feels back to the old days were everything was simple and close with nature. The open space, the room, the common area, the hammock, they are perfect. If you want to find dive in alor, i think this is the best place you should come. They really have a best way to choose the dive site. Sometimes you can experience a thematic day trip with them. A curated dive trip. The staff is very very delighting... amazing. Acionk, and Maul as the guide, give another experience, not only diving. The chef "bibi" is very extraordinary. They cook really really nice, different menu everyday, real Indonesian home cooking, just like my mom made :) but not worry, they also can cook foreign menu. Hehe. So, over all. just like i said in the first time. This place make my life slow, magical and enjoyable. thanks Acionk, Maul, Bibi and all. cheers! salam, maulana christanto

Sidemount ready! Various bc: Razor, Apeks, X deep, Hollis, everything you need, they have it. Best “boutique” dive center / resort if i can say, (without pool and spa) in Alor. You can try different kind of gear if you have small/regular fin size: Apeks Rk3, seawing nova, Avanti Quattro plus and much more! Dont worry about gear, safety is their priority. Very well maintained! Room is clean, what i like is there are many wall sockets! No need to worry about electrical gear. There are also have air con and water heater! Bathroom use fresh water, not brackish at all. Telkomsel 4G connection is quite acceptable. I do my remote desktop connection to my office, and stream 1080p youtube without buffering. Dive site is beyond expectation, but beware of the current. If you pay attention to dive guides, everything will go well. The owners whose also dive guides: Acionk and Maul is very knowledgeable in macro, current, and espescially safety procedure. Be note: They always on time,7.30 dive, don’t be late! Boat is very clean and well maintained. They always bring emergency oxygen, extra weight and mask. The food is delicious, Bibi is a good cook, we have no problem with the food at all. Couples of dolphins near the air dive shore (if you are lucky) If you read till this end: what we saw during our trip are: Pygmy blue whale, whale shark, blacktip, skeleton shrimp, sea apple, pygmy sea horse, shark egg and much more. Let me quote from Air Dive Alor: “You don’t find them, they will find you”

I came to Alor to enjoy well known world class underwater dive site. Luckily, i met air dive team as my company. Undeniably amazing underwater dive site should be enjoyed with passionate, professional and knowledgable buddy and so far airdive is perfectly matched for diving and exploring hidden gem, Alor. Diving and staying with them leave beautiful footprints at my heart. I adore how acionk, maul, irwan, iba, matt, bibi, captain and all airdive family members treat their guest not just as a guest but their long awaited friend who came to visit them. Naturally skillfull on costumer service, they made me feel secured and pleased along my journey. They creatively create memorable moments for me, not just underwater but also during staying with them. And, the best impression is they are not just running diving business but also deeply concerns with nature conservation and local community empowerment. Akui! No doubt to return, again.

A very great diving experience. Alor is such a hidden gem. The pristine reefs, big pellagic, schooling fish, walls, drift dives. Just tell air dive what you're looking for then they will take you to the site. Kanaloa boat is also so complete with oxygen for emergency, tank spaces and very spacious too. The hospitality from Air Dive also makes my heart full. I am going to come back here again someday. Thank you Air Dive Alor!!!

We’d like to give a special appreciation for you to come to Alor by yourself in your very tight schedule as a doctor. For that, thank you so so much! Can’t wait to welcome you again (but next time with your husband), we promise to make BBQ next time.
