The Jaya Phinisi Indonesia offers liveaboard dive trips to Raja Ampat from November to May and Komodo from late June to late September. Raja Ampat itineraries visit some of the best areas in the region, including Arborek Island, Penemu, Kawe, Gam, and Mioskon, with the chance of up to 4 dives per day. In the heart of the Coral Triangle, Raja Ampat should be at the top of any diver's bucket list. Komodo itineraries explore world-class dive sites, and an additional option for Rinca for trekking to see Komodo Dragons. Dive groups are kept small - max 4:1, to ensure everyone gets the best out of their Indonesia liveaboard. The dive deck has space for all divers, plus areas to store fins, masks, and wetsuits. There are also freshwater containers for cameras and torches, and the experienced crew is always on-hand with a smile to help out when needed.

The 23m Jaya caters to 14 guests in 7 cabins on the lower deck. There are 4 twin cabins with 2 shared bathrooms, 2 double ensuite cabins, and 1 double with a single ensuite, all with AC, charging sockets, fresh towels, and bedding.

The best.

Such an incredible trip. The Jaya crew and divemasters were very welcoming and also so fun. The food was incredible and they catered to different dietary restrictions without compromising on quality of food. The boat was simple but comfortable and well organized. The diving was amazing. I had a bit of trouble with equipment and they were prepared and quick to fix it. Best diving trip I've ever been on.

Amazing trip to Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat was amazing - huge schools of fish, manta, pristine coral, reef sharks, etc. Jaya is fairly basic but functional, well kept and clean. I wouldn't hesitate to stay/dive on Jaya again!

We had an amazing time!

The service provided aboard the Jaya is amazing. All of the crew, the dive masters, etc. are all about taking care of the guests. The boat is well-maintained and has good spaces for relaxing, playing games, etc. The food is absolutely amazing. And of course diving Raja Ampat is a delight and the dive sites were well chosen.

Great budget LOB option

Pros: - Excellent dive guides (Rachel and Erika) who were experienced, empathetic and perfectly balanced friendly/professional. They were very knowledgeable about diving and every dive site, patient with questions and needs of divers of different levels. I felt very safe with them and 2 female leads are a nice perk as a solo female traveller! - F&B was varied and took into account dietary requirements. There are soft drinks/beers you can purchase on board. Generally delicious Indonesian dishes with rice/noodles, meats and veg. We also had snacks between dives, never went hungry! - Boat was spacious with enough lounging areas (indoor/outdoor) to suit a larger group Cons: - Shower set up in the en suite is a bum gun with fixed pressure rather than a shower head. Good for rinsing off, less so for a shower. FYI: - Komodo dragon visit isn't included as part of the trip and we did it as an exception (thank you team!). It is an excursion pre/post trip but you will need to have a night in Labuan Bajo to do that. It was good to see the dragons, but not at all a highlight, especially compared to the incredible dives we had.
