About Us

Uwe Günther first learned how to dive in the cold lakes of Switzerland. Since then, he has preferred the warmer waters of South East Asia and Indonesia in particular, and is probably one of the very few who, over the course of more than 15 years, have dived almost the entire archipelago, from Aceh at the Northwestern tip of Sumatra all the way East to the islands off Jayapura at the border between Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

With double MSc in Biochemistry and MBA (INSEAD) degrees, Uwe has worked in a broad variety of fields and in scientific, technical and managerial roles. Having lived and worked on a permanent basis in Indonesia since 1998, he has extensively traveled the country and is an extremely rich source of information on each and every conceivable aspect of his host country.

Our Experienced Crew has served on vessels of various size and type throughout the country prior to joining us. Tambora’s captain has been skipping dive liveaboard vessels trough Indonesian water for many years, and hence knows dive sites, beautiful and safe anchorages, and tricky passages inside out. Our dive guides, thanks to many years of practice, have developed a keen eye for the many critters and hidden treasures that so easily go unnoticed. Our cook and the entire hospitality team will pamper you in between dives with tasty bites and well prepared cabins. And our mechanics, deck men, dinghy drivers, and sailors ensure smooth operations of the vessel and dive operations.
