The elegant Mutiara Laut is a unique 46m long and 9m wide liveaboard designed based on a traditional British schooner combined with elements of the Indonesian "phinisi." With over 850m2 of sail, she boasts real sailing capabilities while coming equipped with modern engines, generators, and the latest safety equipment and instrumentation. Built for comfort, she offers year-round diving and leisure trips in far-flung areas of the Indonesian archipelago that are known for some of the best diving in the world.

Throughout the year, Mutiara Laut extensively explores the spectacular dive sites of Raja Ampat with 10- or 11-night diving trips. As part of the Coral Triangle, Raja Ampat's "Four Kings" offer something for every diver. With its incredible variety of fish, stunning scenery, and pristine beaches, Raja will never disappoint. Mutiara Laut also travels far off the beaten track in search of the hidden wonders both above and below the waters of Ambon and Halmahera in the Moluccas, the whale sharks of Cenderawasih and the astounding diversity of Triton Bay, and to the Banda Islands and Alor. Professional dive guides and two tenders assure hassle-free diving, while Nitrox and dive gear rental are available at a surcharge.

Amazing Dive Trip on the fabulous Mutiara Laut

Diving in Raja Ampat aboard the Mutiara Laut was one of the best dive trips I have ever done. The ship is beautiful with spacious cabins and lots of room. There is even a separate toilet and shower. This crew was just fantastic. They wait on you hand and foot making sure you always have what you need to be comfortable. On the last day they provide a cookout on a beach of one of the small islands. They spend an hour raking the beach and setting out chairs with decorations and lights brought over from the ship. They sing and play instruments while you enjoy a freshly grilled dinner. It creates a magical atmosphere to enjoy your last evening. The food is basic but very good. I am mostly vegetarian and always had lots of tasty choices. The diving was spectacular. This ship was not built as a dive boat but that didn't matter at all. You never touch your gear anyway. The diving is done from 2 small pangas. You put your gear on from the little boat and take it off in the water so there is no lugging it around. They do offer nitrox but are still learning how to mix it and it ranged from 26 to 29 percent. They did not charge extra since the nitrox was not at 30 or higher. We never came close to deco anyway. The dive guide was superior at pointing out all the macro and other sealife and watched over me in heavy current dives. I really appreciated that even though I have over 1500 dives of experience. This is not a dive your brains out kind of boat. They offer 3 dives a day with a 4th night dive on three different nights. This worked out perfectly for a 12 day trip and we felt more relaxed and got in as much diving as the boats that offer 4-5 dives in a week. Overall I would highly recommend the Mutiara Laut. She and her crew, truly is the pearl of the sea.

Amazing Experience

Our first proper liveaboard experience and we were not disappointed. Komodo was every bit as stunning as we had been told it was and sailing around it on a boat as beautiful as Mutiara Laut, with a Crew as brilliant as we had was an absolute pleasure. Could not recommend highly enough. Hopefully see you in Raja Ampat soon!

Probably the best liveaboard I have done to date!

Water clarity was exceptional. The ever changing current made for some very interesting diving and the marine life was great. Proximity and multitude of mantas just fantastic. Local guides a necessity. The service and setup on the boat was phenomenal. This is not a 'dive crazy' boat although 4 dives a day is no problem. If you can afford it go for the master cabin - it is just lovely.

We had a fabulous holiday sailing around Indonesia on the Mutiara Laut.

Snorkeling the Cathedral cave in southern Raja Ampat was awesome. The fish schools in Raja Ampat were just amazing and so many surprises, never seen a red anemone before! Wall diving, bommies, drift diving, sea monoliths, coral much to see. Plus the food was really great and lots of it.
