The Pelagian takes the same luxurious standards, so characteristic of the Wakatobi Dive Resort, to liveaboard diving in south Sulawesi. The Pelagian places the entire Wakatobi Marine Park at your fin tips and will get you to some of the best dive sites in the world, mixing walls, drifts, pinnacles and muck dives. If you love being pampered and world class diving, then make a beeline for the Pelagian! You'll think you're on your own private yacht.

Sleeping only 10 divers, the Pelagian is 36m of serious luxury. There are 4 different berth designs enable you to choose the cabin that suits your needs. All are tastefully decorated with a boutique style that looks more like a hotel. Modern en suite bathrooms and air con are standard. The standard cabins are great if you tend to spend most of your waking hours in the communal areas. Practically designed, the standard cabin is a twin option. The deluxe cabin is larger with 1 double and 1 twin bed. There are 2 superlux cabins which are larger still. There is a queen double and separate day bed. The master cabin stretches the full width of the boat and is the ultimate in luxury. There is a kind sized double, seating area,, TV and blue ray. This cabin is on the main deck. Be assured, no matter which cabin you chose, your experience will be more like at a 5* hotel than on a liveaboard!

Every area on this special liveaboard has been designed to ensure your comfort at sea is not compromised. Relax in the main salon or soak up the ever changing scenery from the foredeck. Sublime meals are prepared freshly each day. The pre-dive area provides ample space for donning and doffing equipment and camera care- the camera room looks more like an upmarket bar than a kit storage! Just as much care has been taken over the dive deck and facilities. Two custom build RIBs drop divers, from which the bulk of the diving takes place. Pick-ups are fast and easy with the help of on board ladders. Rebreather divers are welcome on the Pelagian.

You are now able to select how many days diving you would like included in your liveaboard package. So you can strike the ideal balance for you between relaxation and discovering the marvellous world underwater in South Sulawesi.

Excellent crew; food; comfort; attention to detail as always a first class operation where the staff go that extra mile. This is the first time ever that we have repeated a holiday and the reason is simple; The Pelagian is in a class of its own Grant & Amando Morris

An outstanding experience from the moment I landed in Bali and was greeted by a Wakatobi staff member, to the moment I left. The Dive Masters and the entire crew did an exceptional job. Dive briefings were very thorough, the diving was fantastic and the attention to every detail was great! David

I thought that you might want to have some feedbacks from our experience on the Pelagian at Wakatobi. We had a fabulous experience. From arrival, transfer and organizing our pick up back in Bali, all transport issues were well addressed. On the boat, everything was perfect: crews attention (especially the stewards), dive masters (good humour, attention to the conservation, good guides), food (excellent), cabins (comfortable even the standard one!!), cleanliness, facilities on the boat. We had some of our most fantastic dives. Visibility was good, current was manageable and the underwater world was amazing. We logged a lot of weird looking fishes, nudibranches, corals, not recorded yet by our eyes. The trip was excellent. We will return, definitely! To be recommended to any diver that wants to see beautiful underwater world. Cat
