Newly launched in 2016, the Wisesa liveaboard is a traditional wooden phinisi with modern comforts. At 30m in length, she offers the perfect small group experience, catering to just 8 guests in 4 comfortable air-conditioned cabins located on the lower deck. The upper deck is home to the outdoor dining area, indoor lounge, and galley, where 3 fresh meals plus snacks are prepared daily. There are also beanbags on the rooftop, perfect for relaxing after a day of diving and exploring the Indonesian archipelago.

Dive cruises vary from 4 - 12 days, and explore Raja Ampat from November to April and Komodo National Park from April to October. The Wisesa team has over 10 years of experience in diving in Indonesia. Dive groups are kept to a minimum, with 2 guides per 8 divers so that everybody can get the best experience underwater. Dive cruises in Raja Ampat offer the most exciting dive spots in Central, North, or Southern Raja Ampat, while on the Komodo cruises, there is the chance to dive with mantas, sharks, dugongs, dolphins & turtles.

The experienced and professional crew of the Wisesa are on hand to help you enjoy an Indonesian liveaboard of a lifetime.

Trip of a Lifetime

I was genuinely impressed by the boat and everything on the Wisesa. The open style of the boat allowed for a great atmosphere and very comfortable accommodations. The diving itself was absolutely amazing- with the DM and CD doing amazing jobs the entire week of ensuring we had the best dive sites (and all to ourselves) and all of our needs met. The food was great- varying options every day to fit all preferences. The rooms were kept clean for us and the crew attended to any requests. The boat itself is in great condition and really contributed to a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Best liveaboard trip I’ve been on and it will be tough for other boats to compete!! Thanks guys, had a blast.
