At 26m in length, Putri Papua is a small yet elegant traditional schooner that specialises in liveaboard diving in Raja Ampat. Economy cruises run all year round, are 10 nights, and cover all regions of this incredible region of Indonesia's West Papua province.

Up to just 8 guests can be accommodated on board in 4 en-suite cabins. The low number of guests is great to avoid 'diver traffic' underwater and for plenty of personalised service. The Putri Papua features an air-conditioned saloon/dining area with entertainment facilities such as a small library, satelite telephone, and a sun deck with awning, chairs and mats for those who prefer to relax outdoors.

Diving is conducted from the motorised tender with 40 HP engine. The dive deck features diver gear and camera stations, and an outdoor shower. Liveaboard cruises on the locally-owned Putri Papua mean that the wonderful sites of Raja Ampat are now open to more scuba divers, since the affordable prices make it possible for many more travellers to experience this wonderful region. Each trip includes hiking opportunities and land visits to a lagoon and view points, and can be combined with a land-based dive package at the operator's local resort.
