More than 15 years ago, the success story of Extra Divers started with the opening of the first Extra Divers dive center in the Red Sea. The dive pioneers recognized that there was a missing link between professional tourism and customer-oriented diving activities in the fast growing diving vacation market.
This idea and the implementation of the concept of safe diving combined with the best of hospitality soon proved to be the right approach. Cooperating with handpicked travel agencies, hotels and airlines – simultaneously guaranteeing a fair value for the money – has already led to consistently favorable feedback from satisfied guests. This positive image of Extra Divers has spread among the divers.
Individual and friendly local service has been our goal now for the last 15 years. In order to further improve our premise of “all-around service” to our guests, we have combined the booking through our partner travel agencies Reisecenter Federsee and Extratour, with the after-sales service made possible by the Extra Divers Membercard, all leading to high customer satisfaction.
In 2001, during the search for exceptional destinations, Extra Divers was successful with Nabucco Island, just off the coast of Borneo in Indonesia, where they combined hotel and dive center for the first time. A one-stop service—envisioned by divers, for divers—to indulge our guests.
As a result, the “Nabucco Project” was born continuing this revolutionary concept. There are now new “Nabucco” resorts on Tobago (Nabucco’s Resort Speyside Inn), the Nabucco’s Nunukan Island Resort, also in Maratua Atoll in Indonesia, as well as on the Moluccas in Indonesia, where Nabucco’s Cape Paperu Resort is operated from.
Our guests greatly appreciate the complete service from our hotel and diving services, at the best dive sites in the world with fine cuisine and appealing bungalows in an environmentally friendly design.
With the 2011 purchase of the Saman Explorer, Extra Divers offers the opportunity to explore sensational and rather isolated regions while on dive safaris. The Liburan Paradise, the next component of the still small fleet, has been underway in the coral triangle of Indonesia since 2014.
We hope to greet our constantly growing circle of guests at our dive center in one of the most beautiful places on this earth—a dream vacation with unforgettable dives.
