La Galigo Liveaboard
La Galigo Liveaboard
La Galigo is a premier diving Liveaboard that operates in Indonesia at some of the most popular diving locations in the world, Komodo, Raja Ampat and Wakatobi are among some of these fantastic diving destinations. Indonesia has some of the highest Biodiversity on the planet and is home to The Coral Triangle.
La Galigo was conceived back in 2014 when two avid divers wanted to explore some of the pristine reefs in Indonesia but found existing Indonesian liveaboard choices were often out of budget. Nowadays liveaboard diving is very much friends and family affair, and they identified a niche in the market to provide a fun, comfortable, affordable, liveaboard adventure.
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, Wakatobi, Banda, Ambon, Maumere, Alor and beyond. We are predominantly a dive liveaboard but enjoy tailoring bespoke charters that our guests desire.
The vessel takes a maximum of 14 guests comfortably; our accommodation is offered as seven cabins split over two floors built with comfort in mind. All cabins are double or twin share with air con, hot water, and ensuite facilities.
We love our guests to feel at home, and we have several deck areas where people can chill, catch a few rays or read a book. Indoors you will find our saloon where our excellent chef serves a mixture of Indonesian and International cuisine, and our lounge area with an extensive library of books, games and tv so that people can check out their dive videos.
We often include land excursions as part of our trips, so our guests get to experience the beauty of the islands as well as marvel at the underwater world.
Our dive deck is purpose built at the rear of the boat, with plenty of room to gear up and lots of camera space, the dive deck is at sea level, giving easy access to the dive tenders.
