Akomo Isseki, Indonesia


Set sail on an Indonesian adventure aboard the Akomo Isseki liveaboard. A traditional hand-crafted wooden phinisi, she is crewed by the Bugis sailors of South Sulawesi and offers fantastic dive itineraries in Raja Ampat and Komodo National Park. Four naturally vented cabins with twin beds cater to 8 guests on board. Shared bathrooms feature modern facilities and traditional handicrafts. Social areas include the communal dining area and large partially covered sun deck. Enjoy a selection of freshly cooked Indonesian and Western meals, beach BBQ's, freshly baked bread, treats and hot coffee. Days can be spent lounging on the sun deck in-between dives, kayaking, snorkelling and island visits, and unwinding at the end of the day enjoying an incredible sunset, the sea breeze and a cold beer with your fellow dive buddies.

The Akomo Isseki phinisi visits dive destinations including Raja Ampat, Komodo National Park and the Banda - Ambon crossing trips. In Komodo dive at Karang Makassar and get up close with schools of Manta Rays, enjoy a dusk dive at Palau Siaba to watch the beautiful Mandarin fish perform their mating dance ritual and walk with Dragons on Komodo island. Raja Ampat itineraries are offered from November - April and are a divers' paradise. Home to some of the most bio-diverse diving in the world, marine life encounters can include wobbegong sharks, pygmy seahorses, nudibranch galore and even dugong, manta rays and humpback whales. For the more adventurous, the Spice Island Trail from Ambon to Waisai (or reverse) is not to be missed. This is the chance to dive off the beaten track and explore untouched beauty with the chance to dive with schooling hammerheads.

Whichever itinerary you choose, the passionate dive guides and attentive boat crew will be sure to deliver an exceptional trip to remember. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

Awesome diving week!

The dive sites are really good, we saw so many sea animals and the guides were very experienced in planning the dives so we got wonderful diving experiences (schedule, considerations about other diver groups on-site, they know the dive sites well).

It was my favourite liveaboard ever, nice boat, good guides, very helpful and friendly crew. I will never forgeth this trip!

Highlight for me was to see mantas! The short trips in the afternoons to islands and viewpoints where really fun. Corals and fish are just incredible there!
