Indonesia Liveaboards

Indonesia is one of our most exotic scuba diving destinations with heavenly diving guaranteed. Jump aboard any one of our Indonesian liveaboards for a diving holiday that oozes quality from every pore with 5 star service every time. Scuba Travel has teamed up with world famous vessels from pedigree fleets delivering the highest standard liveaboard holidays you can find. Build and design are elegantly understated and most boats offer standard cabins through to an enormous master stateroom with giant double bed. Prepare to be blown away... before you have even set fin tip to the water! So escape to a world beneath the waves that very few people have yet to see, far from the reaches of daily divers or unwelcome distractions.

Indonesia is a great island archipelago and each liveaboard zooms in on in a tiny corner. In their individual locations, the dive teams have searched the length and breadth of Indonesia's reefs - from Komodo to Sulawesi into Raja Amapt and Manado - to create individual itineraries packed with diving wonders. This range of routings brings you closer to the mind blowing opulence and richness underwater. Splash in with the smallest and strangest macro life or hang in the blue watching the sharks, rays and whales pass. Sea horses, clown frog fish, mimic octopus, mantis shrimp, nudibranch, sea snakes - there is no end to the bio diversity in what is nicknamed the Coral Triangle. The corals and sponges remain untouched by human activity and the reefs are buzzing with marine life. Spoil yourself with an Indonesian liveaboard and experience undeniable diving heaven.

The water temperatures experience little variation through the year, averaging from 26-29 degrees. The diving is excellent all year round. The size and spread of Indonesia makes generalisation difficult but typically the wetter season is Jan - March, although as it is a truly tropical destination, you can experience short downpours at any time of year.

This is primarily a macro destination with incredibly healthy corals but you can find some fast currents which attract bigger fish on occasion.

  • Pygmy sea horses - Bargibanti, Denise & Colemans
  • Ghost pipefish
  • Blue ringed octopus
  • Mandarin fish
  • Frogfish
  • Sea snakes
  • Eagle rays
  • Turtles

Top dive sites to visit: there are so many and lots are still being identified! Main areas of interest for divers on a liveaboard are Manado, South Sulawesi, Komodo, Flores and Raja Ampat.

Scuba Travel Tips

It is well worth thinking about having a few days on arrival to relax from your flight before your diving starts. Or why not combine 2 diving options and see more of this incredible country. Take some dollars with you for your visa (obtained on arrival) and Indonesian rupiah for the exit taxes and tipping. If you are visiting one of the Muslim islands, lightweight cover is handy for shoulders when exploring local areas.
