MY Oceanic offers 12 guests an enticing range of Indonesia liveaboard diving charters around some of the country's finest diving destinations. The relaxed atmosphere onboard the Oceanic is in part due to the depth of experience from the team who also operate the Oceanic’s sister liveaboard, SMY Ondina.
Accommodation on the Oceanic is comfortable and functional, with both double beds and a single bunk in each cabin or suite, and all with ensuite bathrooms. Photographers will really appreciate the camera room and spacious dive deck with dedicated camera rinse tanks. Nitrox is also available for suitably certified divers.
The sundeck and shaded open air seating include reclining rattan sun loungers. These spacious and comfortable relaxation areas are perfectly positioned to take in the awesome Indonesian scenery while you recharge between dives. The 12 dedicated crew will ensure you are well fuelled for your ‘Coral Triangle’ diving adventures. You can enjoy chef-prepared meals, made with the freshest ingredients, in the air-conditioned indoor saloon/dining area.

"Very well-run live aboard - excellent crew, amazing diving, great organisation, yummy food " - Sophie Kubik, Singapore, 28 November 2019 ...
"The boat was very comfortable, the indoor and pout door seating areas were fantastic. The rooms were good for singles or couples but may be a bit tight for 2 singles. The bathrooms were very small. The food was varied and delicious. The chef accommodated for every kind of diet and taste. Ima, our Cruise Director was excellent. The dive deck was well organised. Nitrox had consistent levels. Loved that they had both steel and aluminium tanks.The crew were very helpful and looked after the gear well. They had plenty of spares if needed and the crew were great at finding quick fixes for broken equipment. The guide took great care to point out and explain marine life. They dove responsibly and carefully ensuring all divers were safe, even in strong current situations. Pick ups and drop offs were seamless, also the taxis used were very comfortable. The village visits were fantastic and really added value to the trip., as we got to see places and meet people you would normally not have the opportunity for." - Frances Evans, Germany, 27 November 2019 ...
