La Galigo Liveaboard

      La Galigo has been built by traditional Southern Sulawesi craftsmen in Bira in 2012. She is a traditional two mast Phinisi style sailboat, which the Buginese have perfected over hundreds of years. Her sturdy hull has been built from Kalimantan ironwood and the rest of the vessel has been finished to perfection in warm tropical teak.

      She has been designed by an avid liveaboard diver with the liveaboard diving lifestyle comfort and practicality in mind. Motor and generator noise have been engineered out by isolating the engine room away from rooms with thick walling. Cabins and ensuites are filled with plentiful natural light and spectacular views of the passing seas and islands.

      La Galigo consists of 3 main decks for living and diving plus an additional rooftop deck that is opened during favorable conditions. All cabins have wardrobes with plenty of space for your luggage, and a desk to fill out your log book after a spectacular day diving. All cabins also have hot water in the showers.

      Your service is guaranteed with a very low crew to customer ratio. Enjoy a unique cultural exchange with the local Indonesian people as you learn a little Bahasa Indonesia and immerse yourself in the culture of this mystical land.

      La Galigo operates as a cruise where you can join others by simply booking through our website or book out the entire vessel for your own group. In addition you can book out our vessel for customized trips, corporate functions, team building and book for specialist trips such as scientific expeditions or educational programs.

      Most of our divers come with their own equipment, we do have a limited range of equipment for hire at an additional cost on board our vessel.

      Our roomy lower deck cabins feature an American style deep sprung double mattress. 2 of the cabins remain doubles, 2 can be converted to twin beds. Every room has its own private en-suite with hot fresh water showers, climate control, and a desk for filling out your logbook after a fantastic day diving.


      Floor Deck

      The main floor is the spacious living and diving area. The back area of the boat is our broad dive deck with twin curved stair cases. A well equipped preparation deck is next up from this with ample space to kit up into your gear with out the hassles of a crowded dive boat. The homey lounge area towards the vessels center gives our new friends a perfect place to trade stories about the days diving and download brilliant photographs of your day.

      This space has many power points for charging and preparing your laptop, camera and video equipment. This space also has a large TV and a well stocked bookcase for your entertainment.
