Pearl Of Papua

PEARL OF PAPUA; TREASURES OF THE SEA ABOUND.

Pearl of Papua is a Buginese phinisi schooner that was traditionally built-in Sulawesi in 2010. The tropical wooden construction has a length of 30- and a beam of 8 meters.

Specially designed as a diving vessel, it is fitted with the latest in nautical and safety technology. High standards are met for the comfort of 14 guests.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are part of the daily menu. If you have special alimentary requests due to religious beliefs or food allergies, please inform us at the time of your booking.

Diving

Partly because of the Indian and the Pacific Ocean’s geographic location, these waters surrounding West Papua province are incredible fertility and biodiversity.

The dive sites have stunning soft corals and huge sea fans where pygmy seahorses love to hide. Oceanic mantas and reef sharks are regular visitors during the dives. Night dives also are not to be missed during your liveaboard diving vacation.

Our dive guides have excellent knowledge of remote and unspoiled diving sites. Not only scuba diving but also snorkeling will blow your mind on each occasion.

The shaded dive deck on Pearl of Papua has warm water showers, rinse tanks, and charging stations for your camera equipment. We run a diving gear rental service, including nitrox. Courses are available. Evening dives/snorkeling is always very much appreciated.
