Queenesia, Indonesia



  • 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.

Great Liveaboard

*Disclaimer - We were upgraded to a larger boat due to maintenance on the boat we booked (but that's already a great indication of the outstanding service this company provided)* It was my first live aboard and I will for sure do another one! Staff and dive guides were outstanding. There was so much food and tea or hot chocolate served after every dive. The dive guides knew the sites super well and were flexible to requests to go early, do a day dive instead of night dive, etc. Overall a 5 star experience and I would highly recommend this company to other divers.

Buen buceo en no tan buen barco

El buceo y el trato de la tripulación y guías muy bueno. Cabe resaltar que el camarote en ciertos momentos se respiraba aire viciado y humo de combustión
