Edi Frommenwiler, is recognized as one of today's best underwater videographers. He's not always onboard and the cruise director takes care of the guests. But if he is on board guests are invited to follow and observe Edi during his video dives and can ask Edi to share footage, stories and his vast knowledge of creating underwater video in Indonesia. If you prefer to be guided during your dive, then please select a group lead by one of the Pindito dive guides.
The Pindito was built according to Edi's specifications in 1991-92 and upgraded based on his ideas and plans in 2006. Edi speaks English, German, and Bahasa Indonesian.
