Seven Seas liveaboard Indonesia is a custom-designed phinisi schooner with a length of 45-meter. The iron-wooden hull, dark sails, and rigging of this vessel paint an impressive picture.

It steers to the prettiest places in Indonesia with the best possible cruise itineraries. Oriented towards the islands and coral reefs in the East, destinations may include Komodo, East of Flores, Forgotten Islands, and Raja Ampat.

Our 18 Indonesian crew members and two western cruise directors have organized many diving adventures for more than a decade in these waters.

Our chef prepares three meals a day using fresh local products. The delicious and healthy dishes are served as bountiful buffets.

Outdoor dining on the upper deck is a mouth-watering and eye-caressing experience. During your dive cruise, there is a selection of fine wines and other alcoholic beverages available.

In case you have a special dietary request, please let us know in advance.

Diving

The diving grounds we visit are famous for the unmatched marine biodiversity underwater and stunning sceneries above the surface. We enable some of the best diving in the world.

The dive deck is very spacious with 24 aluminum tanks that hold 12 liters of air or nitrox. If you want to travel light, there are six sets of dive equipment for rent.

One of 3 speedboats will bring you to remote and pristine dive sites with a maximum of 6 divers, including the guides.

After your dive, you find showers to rinse you off and freshwater buckets for cameras and dive equipment. Snorkeling, sea kayaking, fishing (where permitted), and land excursions can be part of your adventure.

25 Oct 2021
Komodo National Park (Labuan Bajo-Labuan Bajo)
Arrival: 25 Oct 2021
Departure: 31 Oct 2021
Days/nights: 7 Days / 6 Nights
Komodo National Park (Labuan Bajo-Labuan Bajo)

‘Thar Be Dragons.’

The warning was etched on maps at the boundary of the known world by the earliest cartographers – inspired by the mythical dragons of Komodo. Old world mariners avoided venturing anywhere near these fearsome beasts – leaving their pristine habitat to remain a gem of biodiversity both above and below the surface of the Flores Sea.

Komodo

Komodo National Park was created in 1980 to protect the dragons and other rare and unusual wildlife here. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1991, Komodo has since been named as one of the ‘World’s Top Ten Destinations’ by National Geographic Magazine in the July 2017 edition.

For adventurers aboard the Seven Seas, Komodo is one of our top cruising destinations – beloved by divers, wildlife enthusiasts, and outdoor explorers alike.

The Park itself includes a trio of large islands (Komodo, Rinca, and Padar), interspersed with an archipelago of smaller islands and seamounts.

Located at the boundary between the Indian and Pacific, these two great oceans are home to completely different marine environments. Driven by this confluence of oceans, the Indonesian Flow-Through creates a net north to south current within the Flores Sea, which surrounds Komodo Park. Powerful tidal currents draw nutrient-rich Indian Ocean seawater to the northern reaches of the park, allowing a unique and unforgettable variety of species to mix here.

The end result is a stunning diversity of habitats and species in a relatively small area – enabling us to introduce you to an incredible variety of dive sites and marine environments with a minimal amount of travel time between your adventures.

The rugged savannah of the islands within Komodo Park contrasts dramatically with the sapphire-blue seas and hidden beaches to be found scattered across this amazing natural wonderland. The relative lack of rain and humidity makes Komodo an ideal trekking destination, the perfect change of pace after a pleasant morning spent exploring a coral garden or drift diving a seamount.

Padar Island – one of Komodo National Park’s most iconic landscapes – is a spectacular afternoon or early morning hike, offering panoramic views of craggy mountains towering above a crescent of stunning white sand beach. On most nights, we’ll venture ashore to a secluded beach for drinks and hors d’oeuvres, often accompanied by an improvised performance of acoustic guitar music from our multi-talented crew.

As the last colors fade over the western horizon, the stars begin to glow in the clear air of the night sky. Komodo is miles and miles away from any large city, allowing the full crescent of the Milky Way to be seen on a moonless night. Dining on the top deck of the Seven Seas beneath a panorama of constellations is a sight not soon forgotten.

Beyond the world-class diving, Komodo offers our adventurous guests the opportunity to explore secluded beaches and stunning shallow-water coral gardens by sea kayak or stand-up paddleboard. The Park is also home to the famed ‘Pink Sand Beach’ – one of only seven such beaches known anywhere on earth. Sheltered lagoons with mirror-calm seas are perfect for waterskiing or skurfing – a favorite activity of our spirited crew, who love to put on a lighthearted show on the water behind one of our twin-engine tender boats.

With so many highlights spread across the more than 1,700 square kilometers of Komodo National Park – the vast majority accessible only by boat – the Seven Seas liveaboard offers the ultimate platform for getting the most out of your precious time exploring the park.

You’ll wake up to a new, jaw-dropping destination every morning – spend the day diving, trekking the rugged savannah, sea kayaking, stand up paddling, or just pausing to take in another stunning panoramic view from the comfort of our upper lounge while sipping a sunset drink or enjoying a pre-dinner snack.

Our core itinerary includes the very best highlights of diving and exploring Komodo National Park. However, recent exploratory expeditions have led us across the Sape Strait to discover an untouched paradise in the south of Sumbawa. This remote region of Indonesia offers some of the best beaches to be found anywhere – sparkling sapphire seas fringed by deserted white sand beaches without another soul in sight.

We invite you to join us on the adventure of a lifetime, exploring the very best of Komodo National Park.

Home to more than 1,000 species of fish, 260 species of coral, and offering the chance to glimpse rare marine mammals such as the dugong and sperm whale, Komodo National Park is the trip of a lifetime for divers of all experience levels. Komodo’s underwater landscape is as diverse as the species that live here. You’ll discover dive sites from high-adrenaline sea mounts swirling with sharks and pelagic species to underwater canyons with feeding mantas to classic wall dives, to gently sloping coral gardens, to cave swim-throughs, to Komodo icons like Manta Alley and Batu Bolong – there’s enough variety here to last a lifetime of diving without getting bored. You’ll traverse the warm waters of the Flores Sea in the north, also exploring further south into the Indian Ocean – the water becoming gradually cooler as you near the open ocean. Underwater photographers and naturalists thrill to see rare species such as pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, blue-ringed octopus, false pipefish, and frogfish – all spotted for you by our expert dive guides. Wide-angle and blue water enthusiasts can catch a glimpse of giant pelagic species, several varieties of the whale (including blue), dolphins, three species of sea turtle, mantas, a variety of reef and blue water sharks, as well as the extremely rare and shy dugong. Seldom-seen species such as ocean sunfish (mola), eagle rays, whale sharks, and mako sharks have also been spotted. We have even heard reports of a sighting of the elusive megamouth shark.

The last dive will be on the penultimate day of the trip. Divers are recommended to wait for 24hours before flying after the last dive.

Please note that the itineraries are examples only, We reserve the right to change the itinerary or specific agreed services, if force majeure, unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances require us to do so.

Raja Ampat (Sorong - Sorong)
Arrival: 12 Dec 2021
Departure: 24 Dec 2021
Days/nights: 13 Days / 12 Nights
Raja Ampat (Sorong - Sorong)

More than 1500 islands make up the Raja Ampat archipelago off the Bird’s Head of West Papua. These islands and their surrounding coral reefs support the richest tropical marine bio-diversity found anywhere in the world.

The area includes 4.6 million hectares of diverse marine habitats and is home to more than 1,000 species of fish, 700 species of mollusks, and some 540 species of hard corals (75% of the world’s total!). Larger marine life includes sperm whales, baleen whales, and even orcas coming through this area, and there are green turtle nesting beaches on the island of Sayang in the North.

No wonder that this ecosystem attracts more and more divers and other tourists and is a focus area for the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Culture and the private sector for eco-tourism development. Several resorts are have started up in the Raja Ampat archipelago, but due to the immense size of the area, the large distances between the top sites, and the great variety of islands in different parts of this region, a comfortable liveaboard like the Seven Seasis still the very best way to explore Raja Ampat. And the Seven Seas has all the local knowledge and experience to be your number one choice for this adventure.

Some of the highlights of a Raja Ampat cruise with the Seven Seas include the great diving, snorkeling, and cave exploring around the rocky islands off South East Misool, the coral reefs of the Fam Island group, the fish and manta rays of the Dampier straight, the critter diving at Batanta and in Aljui Bay, and of course the great karst formations of the Wayag Archipelago up North.

Kayaking among the beehive-shaped karst formations in the Wagmab Island chain in the South is nothing short of stunning, and scattered deserted beaches throughout the Raja Ampat islands make for excellent sunset hideaways. Village visits are unique throughout this region. Paradise birds can be seen at various locations, and an enormously extended Atoll can be found around Ayau Island in Pacific waters in the far North. Of course, for the real adventurers willing to explore this vast archipelago, many islands and reefs are still unexplored, and many new highlights yet to be discovered.
