Mari Liveaboard, Indonesia


The beautiful Mari 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 underwent a complete refurbishment 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 AC, storage space and private bathrooms. All cabins are located on the main deck so are bright and well ventilated. Common areas include the open air lounge, bar and dining area as well as 2 sun-decks with loungers.

The Mari explores the best of Indonesia's dive sites, to offer exciting year-round adventures. From July - October divers can explore Komodo National Park on 4, 5 and 10-night trips. 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 then stays in Raja Ampat 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.

Fantastic clean new liveaboard

The night dives were amazing and one of the dive guides was really good at pointing out interesting critters. Little side excursions were perfect and Holger was very flexible with taking the small boat to snorkel sites. Crew is good and polite, great with taking care of all your gear.

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.
