The Seven Seas is one of the finest Phinisi liveaboards in Indonesia. This 35 metre boat is modern, spacious and very comfortable yet is owned and operated by diving experts with many years experience of local seas.
There are a variety of comfortable cabins with private bathrooms and excellent power showers, indoor or outdoor dining, kayaks, and plenty of lounging space. With the full range of luxury facilities there are few better liveaboard vacation options than the Seven Seas. Versatility is also the name of the game with some adjoining cabins which are ideal for families. Or you can reserve a private lounging area if you want that extra bit of exclusivity.
The boat is excellent as a diving liveaboard and the Seven Seas runs a Komodo tour schedule for half of the year, between May and October. The schooner can also be chartered privately. You can book yourself a private group trip for an exploratory cruise and cultural tour to anywhere in this region. Even on a scheduled diving cruise you can expect a few island walks and kayak trips, such as on Komodo Island itself. The Banda Islands, Raja Ampat and Flores are also among the Seven Seas' routes and nitrox is free of charge so you can maximise your bottom time in these amazing destinations. Unusually for an Indonesia liveaboard the port and park fees are included in the price.

"The boat was very comfortable and the crew very competent and very attentive with our requests; excellent food. We were only 5 divers and very privileged. The visits of the Banda Islands and Ambon were very interesting and the dives marvellous! A great thank to Marc and Tommy who guided us during this cruising." - Coralie Ancelin & Eric Duchenet, France, 11 May 2007 ...
