We lead exclusive group & private dive trips...
Why go on a group trip and other questions answered...
Who are we? Well, in the metaphysical sense I have no idea but at this moment in space-time we are Kerri Bingham and Hergen Spalink. Find our bios here.
Why travel with us instead of booking direct? Group travel is not for everyone but we’ll tell you why so many people travel with us.
Helping our guests with their photography is our passion! If you really want to understand underwater photography join us for some one-on-one instruction.

Kerri and Hergen were the consummate hosts for our recent dive trip to Indonesia. They run a top notch operation from start to finish, including clear communication about trip details, local travel assistance and great service throughout the land and sea portions of the trip. They took a lot of initiative to make our complex travel plans as simple as possible and to flow smoothly throughout our arrival and departure in Indonesia. Can't imagine diving with anyone else!
For year's I had been booking dive trips by myself without a great deal of knowledge of the local areas. I would just google a destination, find a boat or resort that looked good and had availability, then book it. I normally ended up being the only photographer on board, and would be at the mercy of the group as to whether I would end up with good photo opportunities or not. Now after having done a few trips with Kerri and Hergen, I would never go back to my old way of organizing a trip. (...)
The best thing about traveling with K & H is that it's like traveling with your best friends who also happen to know all the local short cuts, places to stay and things to see and do (not to mention that Kerri needs coffee just as badly as we do!). We could not have had a better or more relaxing trip.
We had the joy of traveling and diving with Kerri and Herg in September 2011 for a 2-week trip to Bali and Komodo. Our trip was fabulous from minute we landed in Bali. They had arranged a g(...)
I have been diving with GotMuck for a couple of years now and I have to say I wouldn’t dive with anyone else. Kerri and Hergen's dive experience shines through as they always pick the best dive locations, at the right time to dive for the best memories. My photography has come a long way with the help of both Kerri and Herg!
I was so impressed with Kerri and Hergen’s travel management that I’ve decided they can arrange all my dive travel. It was so easy traveling with them as they did all the logistics - while we were having a drink in the lounge! I can be confident that the boat will be comfortable and safe - and have a good coffee machine!! Also to know that the other divers have met Kerri and Herg’s expectations, it all adds up to an amazing dive trip.
It's hard to quantify all the elements, tangible and otherwise, that make up a good trip, in a few sentences here, but suffice it to say, Kerri and Hergen bring a level of expertise, intense passion, and caring to what they do. I am just glad to have been a part of it, and can't wait for the next trip to Komodo here I come!!--more--
Just finished touring the underwater world of Raja Ampat with Kerri Bingham and Hergen Spalink from Got Muck, and I must say it was a trip to be remembered! (...)
I've been diving for over twenty years and have been on dozens of liveaboards. Diving with Kerri and Hergen at Got Muck is without a doubt the best and most enjoyable diving I've done. From picking dive sites that are not usually visited, to advice on photography and cameras, to assistance with gear problems, they show an attention to detail I haven't experienced elsewhere. I've already booked my next trip with them.
I've been on 4 trips with Kerri and Hergen and have another scheduled for next year. I would not even consider diving in Indonesia and the surrounding region without them. Not only are they thorough and incredibly helpful, but they are so knowledgeable about the area, the boats and dive sites that the trips are always fabulous. The are the best!
What if you could travel with an entourage of enthusiastic friends, a photo pro for personal instruction, the best tour guides for arranging logistics, great critter spotters, oh, and someone to fix your camera and gear? That's Hergen and Kerri!
From the moment I clear customs, and sometimes even before, until the time I check in for my flight home, the only thing I have to think about on a trip with Kerri and Hergen is just how great the next dive is going to be. They are so organized and hospitable. It's a joy to be on one of their trips and has spoiled me for other dive travel.
I have to say I have rather a bit of an open relationship with my camera as opposed to many other photographers that would rather be burned at the stake clutching their DSLR than having to take a photo of the family dog with an iPhone. In the last year I have had fleeting relationships with no less than 4 cameras.
