Almost identical to its sister ship, the MSY Damai II is purpose-built in the traditional Phinisi schooner style as an Indonesia liveaboard. It has been built to a high standard and oozes luxury. Slightly larger than its sister and with a 12-guest maximum, you can expect plenty of space and comfort throughout the boat.
Dives are conducted from a dive tender for easy access to the reefs and there are just 4 guests to each divemaster. The dive deck has been enlarged and boasts individual rinse tanks. Photographers can appreciate the nitrox and the large dedicated camera room which has separated work stations.
After diving, guests can relax in the air-conditioned lounge with a complimentary beer, soak up some sun on the sun-deck, use the onboard internet facility, check their photos in the camera room, or enjoy some music or movies on their en-suite cabin's entertainment system. Luxurious comfort and personal, all-inclusive service await you on the MSY Damai II.
Indonesian dive safari routes and schedules vary, with both Komodo and West Papua Province liveaboards in Raja Ampat available. With the Damai fleet's local expertise, you can rest assured you will be scuba diving at some of the best sites in the country.
