KLM Gaya Baru Indah is a 23m traditional Phinisi schooner running short, affordable cruises around Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea. Perfect for young budget conscious divers and groups, this liveaboard takes a maximum of 10, normally 8 guests, typically with no more than 4 divers per guide.

Surface time is normally spent relaxing above deck. During the daytime awnings are in place to provide shade. These are removed in the evening so you can enjoy the starry starry nights. You relax on sunbeds and sun mats on the main deck or use the tables and chairs on the upper deck. Sun lovers can always find a bright spot to work on their tans.

Meals are normally enjoyed in the indoor dining area with open louvres on both sides allowing for cross breezes to add to the fan cooled ambience. The chef will present a range of dishes consisting both of western favourites including pasta, salads, soups and meat dishes, as well as Indonesian fare featuring rice, fresh fish and local herbs and spices. Simple snacks are available at all times as well as drinking water, tea and coffee. Note, there are no wines or spirits on board. Choose from quad, double and twin bed cabins all at the same per person price. A single diver can book the twin bed cabin as a single occupancy cabin without any supplement.

Nitrox is free of charge! The dive deck features bench seating with underseat storage for your smaller pieces of scuba gear. There are separate camera and equipment rinse tanks. 2 tenders ferry the small dive groups to and from the sites making the diving procedure a breeze. For charging there is a 220V supply with 30 round 2-pin sockets (European standard) at the charging station in the hall outside the cabins. Electricity supply is available from 6 am to 10 pm. Gaya Baru Indah means new beautiful style and is a great option if your style is an affordable, easy going, small group Indonesia liveaboard.
