  • Traditional phinisi experience
  • Dive the top sites of Indonesia

The KLM Gaya Baru Indah is a traditional sailing phinisi offering liveaboard diving around Indonesia's 'Bird's Head Seascape', which includes Raja Ampat. She typically only takes 8 guests per cruise, meaning a more personalized and intimate service. There are 4 cabins available; two double cabins and 2 twin cabins, each with air-conditioning, fan, and reading light. There are 3 shared bathrooms on the upper deck with freshwater showers, shampoo, soap and a toilet. There is ample room to relax and enjoy the stunning surroundings aboard the Gaya Baru Indah liveaboard. During the day, awnings are set up to provide shade from the hot tropical sun, and in the evening, they are drawn back to make way for stargazing. Three delicious meals per day plus plenty of snacks are prepared with a mix of Indonesian and western cuisine. The Gaya Indah Baru has 13 crew catering to 8 passengers, meaning someone is always available to help the valued guests enjoy their trip to the maximum.

Itineraries are from 7 up to 12-days long, with night dives being offered throughout the trip. Dive groups are kept small with no more than 4 divers per guide, so ensure everyone gets the most out of every dive. Raja Ampat is quickly becoming known as one of the best places on earth to dive due to the extreme bio-diversity it offers. Raja Ampat offers the chance to see rays, sharks, colorful coral reefs and large schools of tropical fish, and the highlight of the cruise - whale sharks. The Gaya Baru Indah also visits Triton Bay and the Banda Sea, two more iconic dive areas with some of the best diving Indonesia has to offer.  The shaded dive deck has ample space for individual gear storage and rinse tanks, and nitrox is included complimentary for those certified.

The Gaya Baru Indah is a fantastic budget option for a dive liveaboard to Raja Ampat, Triton Bay, the Banda Sea, and beyond. To reserve your space, call us or book online today.

Amazing Liveaboard experience in Raja

I did the 10 day tour through the South of Raja Ampat, and had an amazing time! The crew is so welcoming and friendly, the south seems to be the less traveled route due to the distance covered, and we were usually the only divers at the site, and our groups were small with 3 divers to a dive guide. On top of the diving, I loved the food, and they were able to easily accommodate the vegan members onboard with some very delicious meals! I will definitely book with them again if Im lucky enough to visit paradise twice and highly recommend them.

Tolle Safari zum erschwinglichen Preis

Wer Luxus haben will, ist hier nicht ganz richtig. Einfache Kabinen, Duschen/Toiletten. In unsere Kabine hat die Aircon nicht funktioniert, was nicht schlimm war, weil nachts der Generator aus ist und die Aircon deshalb nicht betrieben wird. Man hat aber kleine Ventilatoren am Bett, die nicht über den Generator laufen, die vollkommen reichen. Die Crew war unglaublich toll! Genauso wie das Essen, abwechslungsreich und lecker!
