Moana Liveaboard, Indonesia


If you prefer a personal and intense diving experience, Moana is the perfect liveaboard with short trips varying from 4 to 11 days. This 30-meter traditional Indonesian two-masted sailing ship is a breathtaking ton sur ton eyecatcher in these tropical waters. We cater a maximum of only 10 guests. 13 crewmembers will take care of all your needs and safety. We sail to stunning Komodo and Wakatobi to assure your best ever diving adventure. These world heritage sites are located in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago, between Banda sea and Flores sea, where both terrestrial and marine biodiversity is protected.


Moana accommodates its guests below deck in 5 twin or double cabins. An extra bed for a child can be provided. Each air-conditioned cabin with portholes has a private bathroom with toilet and shower. Clean towels are part of the service. Your cabin is stylishly decorated with teak wood furniture and comfortable blue bed linen. Valuables and travel documents can be stored in our ship’s safe.
