Jelajahi Laut is a luxury liveaboard sail boat that was built in South Sulawesi in 2021 from ironwood and teak. Her name means "Explore The Sea", and guests can do exactly that on diving cruises through the best of Raja Ampat, Komodo, and the Banda Sea, always taking you to the best spots and away from the crowds.

Jelajahi Laut is just 27m long but is 7m wide, so there is plenty of space for the maximum of just 14 guests. The vessel was designed by experienced diver owners, optimising guest comfort with a spacious kit up area and camera station, where divers gear up and prepare for their underwater adventures. What's more, there are 11 boat crew, plus a Cruise Director and dive staff, making a staff - guest ratio of almost 1:1, meaning the level of guest service is very high.

There is a sun deck and shaded area, perfect for taking a nap or reading a book on a sun bed or one of the comfy beanbags. The saloon, as well as serving as an indoor dining area, has a widescreen TV and sound system, FISH ID books, board games, and a designated battery charging zone. There are also 2 stand up paddleboards for guests to further explore the sea.

There are 6 cabins onboard Jelajahi Laut, ranging from the very enticing Seaview Cabins that feature private balconies, to Deluxe cabins for couples or friends, and economy 3-share Standard cabins. All cabins feature ensuite private bathrooms.

The shaded dive deck is very spacious and located towards the bow of the boat. Here you will find handy a shower and bathroom, as well as large equipment rinse tanks. Diving activities are conducted from 2 fibreglass tenders with twin 40 HP outboards. Nitrox is also available. Safety features include SART, EPIRB, AIS, GPS, depth sounder, VHF radio, as well as smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, life jackets, life rings, flares and 2 life rafts. There is also a satellite phone for emergencies.

More Trip Details...

Dive experience: At some of the Komodo dive sites, the currents can be challenging, the water can vary from warm to quite cool, and waves and surface currents can make these dive sites quite challenging. While not always as challenging, Raja Ampat can be tricky at times too. 75 logged dives and advanced certification are recommended. Jelajahi Laut's highly experienced guides will choose the sites and dive times according to the experience level of the guest divers to make sure each dive is safe and suitable. We do mandate that every guest has dived within the last year before joining a cruise. If not, you will need to do a 'Scuba Review' (refresher). The advanced course can also easily be integrated in to the trip, to improve your skills.

Cruise price per person includes: Cabin accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, drinking water, soft drinks, hot drinks, return transfers to the boat from the dive centre (Komodo only), dives (as detailed in the trips above), experienced English-speaking divemaster(s) (max. 4 divers per guide), scuba equipment (Komodo only), torch, tanks, weights and weightbelts, all taxes.

Cruise price per person excludes (mandatory, unless customer provides own): Scuba equipment rental (excludes dive computer and torch: US$ 25 per day), Komodo National Park fees (week days: US$ 12 per day, Sundays and holidays: US$ 16 per day), Raja Ampat Park fees (US$ 230), diving insurance. Unless otherwise stated, all the listed items need to be paid on arrival, cash (IDR only) and cards accepted.

Optional extras: Beer, nitrox for enriched air-certified divers (US$ 10 per day), 15 litre tank (US$ 10 per day), dive computer (US$ 7 per day), return transfers from the nearest airport or your local hotel (except Komodo). Unless otherwise stated, all the listed items need to be paid on arrival.

How to get there: Raja Ampat: The Jelajahi Laut departs from the harbour in Waisai. You can fly directly to Sorong from Jakarta, Ujung Pandang (Makassar) and Manado. From Bali there are convenient connections via Ujung Pandang (Makassar) and Manado. Meeting point is at the Marina Star Cafe in Sorong Harbour at 7:30am, where you can have a coffee or tea and wait for all guests to arrive. You will then board the 9 am ferry to Waisai, arriving at 11 am, ready to board the liveaboard directly.
The last dive on these cruises will be 10:30 am on the final day, and then the boat returns and arrives in port shortly thereafter. You will disembark after lunch and in time for the ferry at 2 pm. Expected time of arrival back in Sorong is 4 pm.
Komodo: These liveaboard safaris depart at 8 am from Labuan Bajo, Flores (meet at the Mikumba Dive Centre on the morning of your cruise). You can fly direct to Labuan Bajo from Bali or Jakarta (and we can help you arrange this if necessary). You must check in before 4:00 pm the day before cruise start date to complete registration form, size out your dive equipment and to pay the Komodo National park entrance fee. A speed boat will take you from the harbour, out to where the boat is moored, ready for departure by noon.
The last dive on these charters will be 1-2 pm on the final day, and then the boat returns and arrives in port for disembarkation at around 5 pm.
Banda Sea: These liveaboard safaris depart at 11 am from the jetty at Tulehu Harbour, Ambon (meet at the jetty on the morning of your cruise). You can fly direct to Ambon from Jakarta, Bali, Sorong or Surabaya.
The last dive on these trips will be 1-2 pm on the final day, and then the boat returns and arrives in port shortly thereafter. You will disembark after lunch at 5 pm.
All: Due the timing of domestic flights, it is highly likely you will need to stay at least 1 night before and after a trip. In all cases, please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving. For more information see our Indonesia travel information section.
