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.

Amazing adventure, unique experiences and awesome people

Met and got to know some really amazing people as we dove together in the most amazing dive spots in the world. One dive we just lay on the ocean floor for 50 minutes watching five mantas hovering over a cleaning station - unbelievable!!! So many fish!!! Species you won’t see anywhere else. The side excursions were really fun and interesting. Twelve days barely seemed enough! Thanks Stefan, Mila, Ungke and crew for an amazing time.

Incredible expirience

Everything was just perfect. The staff at Mary boat is amazing. They are very professional. They are very concerned about safety in the dives. The boat have all the facilities to reach the diving points. They choose the best place to dive and during the night they choose safety places to anchor the boat to have a good sleep experience. The chef made this trip an memorably experience. He did so many wonderful and tasty food that I will miss him a lot. I really recomend to choose this boat and the itinerary in Raja Ampat.

Friendly staff and wonderful experience!

it was definitely one of the best liveaboard experiences I have ever had so far. We saw sharks, small stuff, manta and knew many new species. Despite the weather was not that good sometimes, the staff managed to keep us safe and sound and provide excellent service in storm. We enjoyed every dive especially in Balak Island, where we saw manta out of blue, without having to fight against strong current. The dive master joked that we could name that dive site since it is a new discovery for them as well.
