  • Custom-built phinisi for fantastic dive cruises
  • Delicious customized meals with local ingredients
  • Small groups for a stress-free dive experience

A traditional wooden phinisi built in south Sulawesi, the Queenesia liveaboard was custom-built for fantastic dive and adventure cruises in Komodo National Park. Catering to just 8 guests, the Queenesia creates a feeling of comfort in 3 well-equipped cabins. Each room has storage space, charging ports, individually controlled AC, and private en-suite bathrooms. Flexible bedding configuration, which includes a double cabin, a twin cabin, and a quad cabin, is perfect for a small-group charter of family or friends. The large main-deck area is ideal for relaxing in-between activities, enjoying the sea breeze, or taking in the beautiful sunrise or sunset. The onboard cook freshly prepares food customized to guests' tastes. A range of local vegetables, fruit, fresh fish, and a mix of European-inspired and healthy dishes is served.

With flexible itineraries, cruises combine the perfect balance of diving and non-diving activities. Dive with reef sharks, turtles, and manta rays on one day and hike to beautiful viewpoints, walk along pristine beaches, and enjoy island-hopping the next. The large tender makes getting to and from the dive sites nice and easy, and small groups ensure a stress-free dive experience.

Perfect for individuals, couples, family, and friends, the Queenesia is ready and waiting in Komodo. Book online today.

Rustic dive boat with a variety of dive sites

Pros -very friendly, helpful crew and divemasters -cold AC in cabin -variety of dive sites for wide angle & macro -big portions of tasty Indonesian food -tender can do pickups -private ensuite bathroom -spacious boat to relax -plenty of clothes line to hang wet gear -plenty of storage under the bed (stored unused suitcases there) -2 charging stations in the indoor eating area with space for cameras -charging prohibited in cabin -1 microfiber towel and 1 bath towel provided -bathrooms & shower on dive deck (one bathroom has hot water) Cons -compressor system is “artisanal”: 2 portable compressors on dive deck with only 1 fill whip each. Extremely noisy when running. -minimal safety briefing about boat & emergency procedures (no information given on: location of fire extinguishers, smoke detectors/alarms, person overboard procedure, fire evacuation procedure, AED location, [as for emergency oxygen, I believe they said there were 2 emergency oxygen bottles, but did not show us exactly where stored]) -no briefing on what do to if you get caught in down current (luckily did not happen), reef hooks not provided (we brought our own, but some divers were just grabbing onto rock in crazy current!)

Excellent diving with a basic but confortable boat

We enjoyed everything! Food was great, the guides were very friendly and professional, crew is effective and the dive sites are not to growded with divers. Night dives were aslo fantastic. I recommend Queenasia

Amazing experience I booked again!

Manta Point, the crew, walking as well as diving. The scenery, nature, dragons. The locations are close there is not a lot of sailing during the night so less noise and movement which means you sleep well.

Epic dive sites, friendly crew, simple boat.

Diving with mantas, mixing dives with trekkings but doing 18 dives anyway. We were just two guests in the boat so for me was great having that much space. Boat is small but cute

Great experience With awesome crew!

Albert our dive instructor was amazing and knows the best spots for the big and exotic animals we wanted to see. The crew was always there to help and provided us a great experience with supporting all the dive equipment, cooking very delicious food! I would always come again on this boat!

Familiar atmosphere (we were 5 participants + 5 crew members in total), very experienced dive guide who always adapted to weather, current and visibility to provide us the best diving experiences, additional activities like the komodo dragon visit in the Nationalpark and a quick tracking

Fresh water getting low on day 4th and for this reason we must give up our night dive

Food and fruits are super poor quality and quantity. Fresh water running out on day 4th and we must give up our night dive because of they can't manage even also low in fuel after 3days as well. 16-18dives are a joke because all we did just only 15dives in total. Someone stolen my weight pocket that I have left in my basket at dive deck and it was just disappear. This trip was just only 6 divers in total and it was disaster to be on that Boat. Sorry but I don't think I could recommend to anyone. One and only that good is Eddie the Guide, he did what he could and he is a very good guide sadly he also will no longer working for this boat anymore.

Eddie is the only best and experience person on this boat the rest are useless.
