Mari Liveaboard, Indonesia



  • Traditional Indonesian phinisi with modern furnishings
  • Maximum of 14 guests for a personal experience
  • Nitrox available on board

The beautiful Mari liveaboard is a traditional Indonesian phinisi offering year-round diving trips in Raja Ampat, the Banda Sea, and Komodo National Park. Constructed entirely of ironwood and teak, the 30m Mari was refurbished in 2016 to offer modern furnishings and ample onboard space. She caters to a maximum of 14 guests in 7 cabins, ensuring a more personal experience and plenty of room to relax. There are 3 Deluxe and 4 Superior cabins, each offering individually controlled AC, storage space, and private bathrooms. All cabins are on the main deck, so they are bright and well-ventilated. Common areas include the open-air lounge, bar, and 2 sun decks with loungers. The recent addition of a highly-trained chef onboard means that a wide variety of fresh, healthy, and delicious cuisine will satisfy hungry divers. The al-fresco dining table is the perfect place to enjoy a hearty meal surrounded by stunning Indonesian scenery.

The Mari explores the best of Indonesia's dive sites to offer exciting year-round adventures. Divers can explore Komodo National Park on 4, 5, and 10-night trips from July to October. Divers can expect thrilling diving in the national park at world-famous dive sites such as Manta Alley, Castle Rock, and Crystal Rock, diving with manta rays, sharks, and huge schools of fish. In October, the boat moves to Raja Ampat via Flores & the Maluku and stays there until the following April. Explore one of the most diverse marine environments in the world, with the chance of seeing everything from pygmy sea-horses to whales. The spacious dive deck with gear storage and individual rinse tanks, large dive tender for getting to and from the dive sites, and the recent addition of nitrox availability ensure a comfortable dive liveaboard.

Very nice boat, and great diving, and their was plenty of good food.

It was great seeing so many sharks. I have dived before and seen sharks, but never this many. The dive guides were great, friendly and knowledgeable. Their ability to spot wildlife was incredible and they made the experience amazing. Make sure you know what you are renting though, as despite ticking and not ticking various items before arriving, I was given it all and charged as well. I should have checked when I was handed everything but I accepted it all without question assuming it was in line with what I had requested earlier and then was handed the bill at the end.

Die Mari ist ein super Boot für eine tolle Tauchsafari

Die Crew der Mari hat unseren Tauchurlaub zu einem einzigartigen Erlebnis gemacht. Der Service war sehr gut und die Guides sehr Taucherfahren, allerdings ist die Verständigung manchmal ein Problem. Jedoch war unsere Tauchgruppe sehr erfahren und hat die kleinen Sprachschwächen dadurch sehr gut ausgeglichen. Da ich selbst noch nicht viel Taucherfahrung habe war die Konstellation optimal. Für Menschen ohne Englischkenntnisse und wenig Taucherfahrung wäre die Tour nichts gewesen, da es sich bei den Tauchguides um Indonesiern handelt die kein deutsch sprechen. Alles im allen hatte unsere Gruppe eine unvergessliche Zeit und viel Spaß mit tollen Tauchgängen auf diesem Boot und ich kann für alle sprechen das wir es auf jedenfall gerne wiederholen würden.

Excellenter Service, einzigartige Tauchgänge mit wunderschönen Korallen und Fisch soweit das Auge reicht, ein tollen Aufenthaltsbereich mit Panoramablick über den Ozean
