Ratu Laut, Indonesia


The Ratu Laut - meaning Queen of the Sea, offers year-round liveaboard diving in Indonesia. At 30m long she caters to just 12 guests in 2 large quad cabins and 2 smaller twin cabins. All cabins feature AC, fresh towels and linen. 2 shared bathrooms are located on the upper deck. Also on the upper deck is a large open-air shaded dining area and lounge. The top deck is home to the sun deck with sun beds and bean bags.

Diving focusses on Raja Ampat, and the cruise director will choose the best dive sites on the day based on the weather, currents and tides. Divers can expect to do up to 4 dives per day, including a sunset or night dive. The captain, dive guides and crew of the Ratu Laut have years of experience in the Indonesian waters. The Ratu Laut phinisi is operated by Barefoot Conservation NGO, and all profits from the trips go towards science, research and conservation programmes, so you can rest assured that you are helping the marine environment when you dive with the Ratu Laut. Marine Biologists and Manta Ray Scientists will also be on the trip to collect data and do presentations on the research being conducted on manta rays.

The best experience of my life.

I spent 7 days in Ratu Laut and completely loved it. The boat is great, confortable rooms, hot shower, nices to place to chill and sunbathing. The crew was spectacular, always ready to help and full of smiles. The food was delecious and as flexibe as possible concerning passengers preferences. And the diving sites, equipaments, DM were awsome. In addition, Ratu Laut is part of the Barefoot Conservation, whichdoes a great work with the people and reefs of raja - we visited it. So being in their boat also support their work in the area. I definitely recommend it.
