Most of the people traveling with us have been our guests for a long time, some over ten years. That being said, we enjoy new people as long as they share our sense of adventure, fun and love of new experiences. Many people ask us how we make our money. Are we just rich folks that do this for fun? That would be nice, but no. We make our money by chartering the entire boat or resort (or a large portion thereof). As we are travel agents and are taking on a huge financial responsibility, we get it for a better price. We then sell it to our guests for the normal price (sometimes we do have to charge more). So you pay the same amount (mostly) as you do booking directly but you get to travel with us! So what? Well, we know the areas and generally get full control over the itinerary. We don’t just dive ‘Site x’ because it’s 9am on Tuesday and that’s where the boat goes at that time. Also, we bring fun people along! We can also help you with your imaging. We don’t do formal training (unless requested). You get true one-on-one help when you want it, either on the boat or in the water. At the end of the day we aim to provide everyone with the best possible holiday experience.
The other part of our business is as the exclusive US representatives for the Samambaia and Pindito livearboards as well as Alam Batu Beach Bungalow Resort in Bali. This side of the business is ‘Subculture Travel’. These are operators we know and love and use for our own SCTX trips as well. We regularly attend tradeshows for these operators so let us know if you’d like to meet up at the next one.
