KLM Sea Safari 8 is part of Indonesia’s largest luxury liveaboard fleets called Sea Safari Cruises. With all their local knowledge and national pride, they can organize the most intense adventure cruises around West Papua.
Embark on one of their schooners and be sure to have a ‘ whale of a time.’ The ship was built in 2003 and got modernized every year.
With a length of 35 meters and a beam of 10 meters, Sea Safari viii is one of the fleet’s largest boats.
The multi-lingual crew consists of 20 people. Among them are five scuba professionals. Homeport is Sorong, West Papua, and destinations lie in the significant periphery of Raja Ampat.
Sea Safari 8 liveaboard has 12 cabins divided over two decks, with a maximum capacity of 24 guests. Each room has a private bathroom, basin, hot water shower, and air-conditioning.
The middle deck has four double bed cabins with windows and doors giving direct access to the outdoor gangway.
The lower deck has four cabins with double beds, two cabins with a twin setup, one cabin with a single and a double bed, and one cabin with four single bunk beds. These cabins have portholes for fresh air and daylight.
The indoor saloon is a magnificent relaxing area, very much what you expect on a luxury yacht. You can watch a movie, play games, read a book, or have a drink with your fellow divers. Also indoors are the roomy air-conditioned restaurant and a camera preparation area.
Outside common areas include an après-dive sundeck and a shaded leisure deck with a bar.
Sea air and diving will make you go hungry. KLM Sea Safari 8 chefs will nourish you with tasty and healthy food. Our meals are served as delicious buffets with local and western dishes, and you can eat as much as you want.
Fresh fish and vegetarian plates are served frequently. You can obtain wine and beer from our bars.
Aquatic life doesn’t get more bio-diverse and fertile than in Raja Ampat. Here you may have occasional encounters with dolphins, manta rays, turtles, whales, and countless other fascinating life forms.
Diving and snorkeling in these waters is a mind-blowing experience. Our diving deck has all the amenities to guarantee a hassle-free underwater adventure, regardless if you are a snorkeler or tech diver.
