Ondina liveaboard is a 32-meter Buginese phinisi schooner built entirely carved out of teak and tropical woods. Since July 2001, she seduces passengers to join romantic diving cruises through the inner seas of Indonesia.
Liveaboard cruises follow the season’s best opportunities at the Indonesian Archipelago. The 9-12 days dive safaris bring you to the Forgotten Islands, Raja Ampat, Halmahera, Banda Sea, Ambon, and Cenderawasih bay.
On our scheduled trips, we cater up to 16 guests in 8 cabins. When the ship is chartered, a full occupation of 22 passengers is possible. The sleeping quarters are situated on the lower deck. Our air-conditioned cabins with en suite bathrooms also have portholes and quality mattresses.
The cool and spacious lounge area is furnished with comfortable sofas, a dining table, charging points, tv, library, etc.
The partly shaded sundeck is a magnificent place for lazy sunbathe in a hammock or lounge chair while marveling at the passing views. Ondina’s liveaboards crew consists of 15 dedicated and highly trained members.
MSY Ondina’s international kitchen serves delicious and healthy dishes. On the menu are a continental and cooked breakfast, lunch, in-between snacks, and à la carte dinner.
Our chefs will accommodate vegetarian- and other dietary requirements. You can enjoy food inside the saloon as well as on the open-air deck. We have a bar serving coffee, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages.
Besides all the onboard pleasures, experiencing the Indonesian underwater world is the real purpose of the trip. Scuba diving the beautiful dive sites around Indonesia provides an abundance of marine life such as whale sharks, manta rays, sharks, and stunning coral gardens.
