Tiger Blue

TIGER BLUE INDONESIA; A UNIQUE CONCEPT IN LIVEABOARD TOURISM.

The Tiger Blue Indonesia concept comprises so much more than the average liveaboard. Of course, we provide excellent diving, but our trips are equally enjoyable for families, kids, nature lovers, and water sporting enthusiasts.

We offer the ideal opportunity to spend time together, enjoying all the wonderful Indonesian archipelago delights.

After breakfast, go diving or snorkeling, or visit small islands to explore local nature and culture. After lunch, water ski, wakeboard, fish, dive, hike, or relax till dinnertime.

At sunset, you can sip cocktails, enjoy bonfires on the beach, stargaze under clear skies, or get back in the water for a night-dive.

After a full day, it’s time to retire to your private quarters. MSY Tiger Blue is a 34-meter luxury traditional phinisi that can be booked on an individual cabin basis or as a private charter ideal for groups of friends.

Tiger Blue offers three core itineraries to Komodo national park, the Banda Sea, and Raja Ampat.

Located off the northwest tip of Bird’s Head peninsula on the island of New Guinea in Indonesia’s West Papua province, Raja Ampat is an archipelago comprising more than 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Misool, Salawati, Batanta, and Waigeo. These islands are incredibly remote and almost undisturbed by humans. They are best known for their incredible diversity of marine life with perhaps the world’s richest coral reef ecosystems. They are renowned for excellent diving, snorkeling, kayaking, bird watching, and stunning views.

Then take the tender to visit a secret bay and embark on a short trek on foot, which ends in a blaze of color at sunset. Overnight sail to Wayag.

DAY 3 – WAYAG & BONFIRE ON THE BEACH – Climb the peaks of Wayag to survey the limestone outcrops from above – an iconic vista full of lush greens and turquoises. After lunch, choose between snorkeling, diving, or any other watersports before a cocktail party on the beach beside a roaring bonfire, watching hundreds of stars appear in the night sky.

DAY 4 – KAWE TO ALJUI BAY – Set sail early in the morning to Kawe. Cross the equator underwater while you snorkel or dive surrounded by huge manta rays. After lunch, sail to Aljui Bay, home to the best night-diving in Raja Ampat. Enjoy a relaxed dinner on board.

Surrounded by giant ancient trees, paddle right up to the mangrove roots reaching into the water. Marvel at pre-historic hand paintings on the limestone cliffs. Snorkel or dive any range of habitats from caverns and overhangs to hard and soft corals, keeping an eye out for pygmy seahorses and the endemic walking shark. After lunch, sail to Yang Efo to dive or snorkel with turtles, stingrays, and schools of snapper and fusilier sh before sailing to Yen Beser overnight.

DAY 7 – YEN BESER – Before dawn breaks, set off on a trek in search of the rare red birds of paradise, which perform an elaborate courtship display as the sun rises. Puf ng up their feathers, vibrating and buzzing, the birds also tip upside down to show off their long tail feathers, which form a heart around them. Then move on to explore the jungle, observing endemic trees and rich fauna. Dive at Meoscon, pause for lunch, then relax on a short sail before snorkeling again with manta rays. Overnight sail to Sorong.
