Pratiwi, Indonesia


Join the Pratiwi phinisi for an exciting Komodo liveaboard adventure. Itineraries explore some of the best dive areas in the Komodo National Park, and range from 5 to 7-nights which are available year-round. Dive groups are kept small, and trips involve a mix of fantastic muck diving to see cool critters, drift diving with the chance to swim with manta rays and schools of sharks, and trekking to visit Komodo Dragons on the island of Rinca.

Topside the Pratiwi liveaboard caters to just 6 guests in 3 cabins. 2 double cabins have air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom, and the 3rd cabin - generally reserved for larger groups or families, has a shared bathroom and is fan-cooled. The outdoor dining area is where a mix of traditional Indonesian cuisine and western dishes are served, and is a great place to unwind and enjoy the stunning scenery after a day of diving. There are also beanbags located on the main deck to catch some rays, or an indoor salon to escape the sun.

The experienced and professional crew of the Pratiwi liveaboard are on hand to help you to create a memorable Komodo liveaboard journey. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

A fantastic diving experience!

Mantas, Sharks, fantastic Coral, all sorts of reef fish, various turtles and strange and wonderful critters. The trip also included a hike to see Komodo Dragons. I initially booked this boat as a single diver and paid the surcharge for single occupancy. Had I not convinced a freind to join me I would have had the boat to myself. Now the two of us had a whole dive boat and 4 + 1 man crew to ourselves paying the full price for 2 divers. The scenery in Komodo is fantastic. We were there during the end of january, which is monsoon- and off-season, so we did have some rain, but not alot, and it is still around 26 to 28 C in the water and just above these temperatures in the air. The Pratiwi is a nice little boat, but in need of a refit and some equipment upgrades. Shower/toilet facilities are not quite what I would have hoped for... The crew was great though. I work at sea myself and I could easily recognize the expertise that the captain and his crew had both when it came to the vessel and the local conditions(conditions are difficult with all the strong currents in the area). The dive guide had over 10 years of experience of diving in the park and knew every rock. The food was simple but great and plenty of options for each meal. Do not expect a luxury resort type experience on the Pratiwi. In its current state, you will be disapointed. The luxury of this vessel is in its small size, allowing for a very personal experience and in the fantastic scenery both above and below the surface. I had a fantastic trip! I will return to Komodo. Tip: Bring some schampoo and soap :)
