Adelaar liveaboard is a classic Dutch schooner that was originally built in 1902. It witnessed world history while sailing around the globe. A recent renovation has brought it back to immaculate condition. It now serves as a recreational diving vessel in the Indonesian waters.
The steel hull of SY Adelaar (Dutch for Eagle) is 39 meters in length- and a width of 5.5 meters. The yacht-like interior is made mainly out of rich teak. The ship accommodates eight guests only. Uniquely we have special provisions to welcome and assist disabled guests. Destinations include Bali, Komodo, Banda Sea, Forgotten Islands, and Alor. The scuba diving trips vary from 8, 10, or 11 nights for scheduled cruises. Charters can be arranged and fully customized.

First-class facilities and staff will spoil you and enable the SY Adelaar liveaboard experience to be of a superior standard. Classic luxury combined with modern facilities surrounds you everywhere on board. Enjoy the seascapes from a lounger on the upper deck or the shaded open-air deck, delightfully illuminated at nighttime. The lounge and dining area are relaxed and pleasurable retreats at the heart of the ship.
Diving will make you hungry. Our chefs are well aware of this. All meals are made to order and prepared fresh. You can enjoy it on the deck as well as inside. We serve gourmet Indonesian and Western specialties and always consider your (dietetic) preferences. Non-alcoholic beverages are complimentary.
Besides all the onboard pleasures, the Indonesian underwater world is the jewel in the crown. Looking for shipwrecks, coral reefs, or particular marine life specimen on a Komodo dive site? Our dive guides show you around in a small group on your day and night dives. Are you satisfied with a dreamlike snorkeling safari?
Adelaar Liveaboard can make all these wishes come true. We escort you on a zodiac from our dive deck to the dive sites.
We have a rental service for all diving gear, including Nitrox. Courses are available.
Land excursions on Komodo island are optional. We organize a Komodo dragon tour, hiking up the hills to view the entire Komodo archipelago’s breathtaking panorama, or a visit to an autochthonic island village.
