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.
