La Galigo Liveaboard
La Galigo is recognised as one of the most popular Liveaboards for diving in Indonesia, and offers trips to popular diving locations such as Komodo and Raja Ampat. Indonesia has the record for the highest Marine Biodiversity on the planet, and is home to The Coral Triangle.
The concept of La Galigo was conceived back in the early 2000s when two avid divers wanted to explore some of the pristine reefs that call Indonesia home, but found that all existing scuba diving options were often out of their budget. The La Galigo Liveaboard model is very much a friends and family affair, and trips are always focused on fun, guest comfortability, and are exceptional value for money.
La Galigo was acquired in Bali, a beautiful purpose built ‘Phinisi’ style dive Liveaboard, handcrafted by the Bugis people of Southern Sulawesi. We pride ourselves on our Indonesian crew, who have collectively spent many years sailing and diving around a significant number of the 18,000+ stunning islands that make up Indonesia. Our schedule is primarily split between Raja Ampat and Komodo, though we offer the opportunity to dive in Wakatobi, Banda, Ambon, Maumere, Alor and beyond. We are predominantly a dive liveaboard but we are happy to tailor bespoke charters on request. The vessel takes a maximum of 16 guests comfortably, and our accommodation is offered as seven cabins split over two floors built which are built with comfort in mind. All cabins are double or twin share with air-conditioning, and ensuite fresh hot water showers.
We love our guests to feel at home, and we have several deck areas where people can relax, take in the exceptional surroundings or just read a book. Indoors you will find our air-conditioned communal space, where our internationally trained chef will serve you a mixture of Indonesian and International fusion cuisine. Our communal lounge area is also filled with an extensive library of books, games and a TV and is the perfect space to share your experiences of another impeccable day’s diving.
Land tours are an integral part of our outlined itineraries, allowing you to experience the breathtaking beauty and diverse cultures that Indonesia has to offer.
Our purpose-built dive deck at the rear of the vessel allows plenty of room for gearing up and lots of camera space for underwater photography enthusiasts, and with the deck being at sea level, it is designed with guest comfort and accessibility in mind.
